Minister of Home Affairs and Internal Security, Uladi Mussa has been trusted with the role of chairperson for the ruling People’s Party (PP) 2014 Presidential Campaign Committee for President Joyce Banda.
Mussa is leading a team of cabinet ministers and PP officials in holding campaign meetings which have been line-up across the country.
The meeting started last weekend when PP and cabinet minister flooded the northern region where there were 13 rallies and another 18 in the Central Region.
They will move to southern region this week, according to renowned public orator Mussa, often accused of foul-mouthing.
“This is a campaign that we have started and is led by all Cabinet ministers. All provincial chairpersons are also part of the leading team. This is just a start. After Parliament, we shall have these rallies every week until 20 May,” said Mussa, as quoted by the press.
He was speaking in Nkhata Bay North West Constituency, where he was selling Minister of Justice and Constitutional Affairs Ralph Kasambara as PP’s candidate for the 2014 Parliamentary Elections.
Mussa said: “Support people with high value. Honourable Kasambara is one of them. He is the only one that sits in Parliament but does not vote. During voting time, he is just quiet thinking about you people here.”
In a rally Vice President Khumbo Kachali addressed on Saturday at Mthema Primary School ground, Traditional Authority Dambe in Mchinji, urged lawmakers to approve the budget.
He said the proposed 2013/14 budget is not for President Banda or the People’s Party, but it is for families in Malawi and the nation as a whole.
“In the proposed budget, Government has lined up several programmes that will benefit you as families and the nation. But for you to benefit, this budget must be approved by Members of Parliament,” he said.
Kachali explained that in the proposed 2013/14 budget government intends to continue implementing the Farm Input Subsidy Programme (FISP) but it realizes that this programme alone cannot help Malawians.
He therefore outlined that the proposed budget also contains programmes such as a Cow a Family, Mudzi Transformation Trust, Fertliser Loan Scheme and a program that will encourage farming twice a year
