Speaking during a political meeting at Neno, Chibvunde said  if Joyce Banda is  elected in the May 21 2019 Tripartite Elections, her government would  bring rural community  rransformation with the establishment of ‘Smart Villages’.

“There will be an establishment of villages  that has all the facilities that will enable the communities live decent lives.  A typical village will be transformed with our chiefs as the champion of the program,” he said.

Chibvunde said  just as Banda  succeffsully rolled out the safe motherhood program between  2012-14 when she was State President,  that saw the achievement of 30% reduction in maternal mortality, the ‘Smart Villages’ with be successful in her phase two agenda.

On  agriculture, he said the PP will implement a universal subsidy program to achieve food security and nutrition security.

He said the PP will also reestablish the input loan scheme to allow farmers get two bags a year that they would only pay back after harvest.

Chibvunde said PP will also ensure that Malawian farmers get better prices for their prices.

“The PP will ensure  that ADMARC  regain its lost glory that was there when Dr Jerry Jana was CEO,” he said.

Jana is now Banda’s runningmate.

At the rally 156  ruling DPP member s and  others from UTM Party defected to PP.

Speak of UTM, you guys since the arrest of Bushir you have been quiet, does it mean it was true that you and PP were sponsored by Bushir? And that you formed an alliance in a sense that you’d pick Bushir as Chilima’s running mate? It might be true, because few hours after the arrest of Bushir your alliance collapsed, hmmm mwakumana ndi anamatetule kuboma who pushed for Bushir’s arrest few days before your nomination submission and only to be released later on the day after Chilima submitted his nomination. Bravo intelligent people in Government.

Very interesting. She still thinks she can make to Plot No 1. Forget it Mai. You blew it in 2014. You have made your chances even worse by picking the ex ADMARC thieving tom and Jerry as a running (ruining) mate
