“I left in 2014 thinking others are going to develop this constituency but you have seen for yourselves that there is nothing to show save for a few projects which I started. The good news is that I am coming back to serve you this year in May together with our development conscious leader Dr. Saulos Chilima,” said Njawala.
He said people in the area were given a chance to see for themselves who can better represent their interests and now they have come up with their answers.
“Your vote for me as your MP who is coming back home and our UTM leader Dr Saulos Chilima is what will make a difference in May this year. But I am sure every one of you has now seen who can better develop this area,” said the youthful politician.
Group Village Headman Mdala hailed Njawala as a ‘true son’ of the area who transforming Mdala Primary school from a one block primary school in 2009 to a five classroom block primary school in 2014.
