Presidential advisor on National Unity and Parliamentary Affairs, Nick Masewo has challenged that opposition that they will not defeat the ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) in Chitipa as the government has done enough in the district since 2014.
Speaking during a face to face interview in Chitipa at his home campus, Masewo said Presudent Peter Mutharika who is the torch bearer for the party will sweep all the votes on presidential ticket in the district as he has tremendously delivered in the two districts of Chitipa and Karonga.
“People have a liberty to choose but they have no choice to make a mistake, when it comes to what DPP has done, it has done a lot to mention in the past four years. It is up to people in Chitipa to choose wisely but am very much optimistic that Professor Arthur Peter Mutharika will carry the day. I don’t see MCP, UTM UDF defeating him,” Said confidently.
Masewo is also hopeful of reclaiming the parliamentary seat for Chitipa North which he lost to the current incumbent Member of Parliament Dr James Munthari for Peoples Party in 2014 tripartite elections. He however said his dreams depends on the primary elections of the party.
Meanwhile reacting to the remarks made by Masewo, Malawi Congress Party (MCP) Secretary for Chitipa district Isaac Mwepa who is also the councillor for Nkhangwa Ward in Chitipa North said that Masewo is baseless and he does not deserve to be apresidential advisor.
“Malawians have seen themselves hurdles they have been going through since 2014 till to date, we talk of black outs, poor educational standards, our economy is not good. Presidential advisors are people who have largely failed and they are there to make their stomach full, they are there to please the president. ” Mwape queried
If Mwepa’s dreams of standing on a parliamentary seat during the primaries will go toward his way at his political party (MCP) will face each other with Masewo who lost the seat during 2014 tripartite elections to Dr James Munthari for PP in Chitipa North Constituency, the future for Masewo to contest on parliamentary ticket will as well depend on parliamentary election resultsFollow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
