PP aspirant Njikho handovers chieftaincy to contest as MP for Mzuzu city

People’s Party (PP) Mzuzu city member of  parliament aspirant Leonard Njikho over the weekend handed over his chieftaincy role to his son Joseph to effectively contest for the post.

Speaking at the ceremony which took place at Traditional Authority Mbwana headquarters in Usisya- Nkhata-Bay, Njikho who is village headman Chimpita said the Malawi constitution does not allow a chief to also serve as a politician hence his decision to hand over his chieftaincy.

Njikho, who was accompanied by members of his party, said he has the confidence that his son would serve the subjects diligently.

However, despite his application received some resistance from one of the T/A Mbwana royal family members in particular Chief Msiska, that some handover procedures were flouted as not many family members were involved, his ambition finally succeeded as Chief Mdoyi, Bweteka, Chipuwira, and Acting Senior chief Mbwana endorsed his idea.

On his part, PP’s party constituency chairperson for Mzuzu city, Nickson Kanyuka said the party has trust that through Njikho Mzuzu city can develop further hence its support.

Acting T/A Mbwana said he felt humbled that his subjects were able to contribute to the national development and pledged support towards Njikho.
