Scores of people thronged the streets to witness and join a street carnival which escorted the  parliamentary aspirant for Zomba Central constituency to present his nomination papers to the Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC).

The carnival started from Gymkana Club and made a merry-go-round through Zomba Bus Depot all the way to Ndola township up to Mponda TDC ground where the presentation took place.

Throughout the carnival, men women danced to blasting UTM theme songs such as ‘mumumamva kuwawa’ whereas some excited youths threw themselves on the ground to ‘mukalimbana ndi Chilima mugwa gada’.

Scores of other supporters also lined the streets to cheer as the carnival passed through.

Some people could be heard shouting ‘boma ilo’ as Masangwi passed through and waved atop a VX Toyota vehicle.

Speaking at Mponda Ground after presenting his papers, Masangwi said the street carnival was only just the first shot by Zomba Central constituents in their demonstration that they have had enough of mediocre administrations.

He said his agenda is to bring development to Zomba so that the city rediscovers its lost glory and a place in the history of this country.

The carnival was also joined by other senior UTM members such as Louis Ngalande, Southern Region Governor, Steve Mikaya, George Sonda, Norman Nyirenda and Southern Region Director of Women,Mayi  Loyce  Mponda and also Eastern Region Director of Women, Mayi Shahida Hussein and UTM shadow councillors from all the wards in the constituency.

Whose fooling who? People who escorted Masangwi are Blantyre based with none of his supporters from ZA const. The councillors from various constituencies where told to ferry their supporters to ZA to give him morale. Lets see if he can arrange a crowd from bonafide Zomba Central voters!! Afterall he is the incumbent sitting MP from Machinjiri who has feared to stand against John Bande (independent) and wants to stand in ZA Central which is not where he comes from. Time will tell on 21st May when voters have qued on line. AMAKA??

What do you mean “…. wants to stand in ZA Central which is not where he comes from.” The home district for Masangwi is Zomba. For your information another Masangwi was previously an MP for Zomba Ntonya which boarders Zomba Central. Please if you are ignorant it is better to keep quite that spew garbage here.

People of Zomba, do not vote for this guy, Masangwi. If you are seaborn, ask people of Machinjiri to tell you what this guy has done for them. He is running away from Machinjiri because he never develop the are and people there are very furious with him. You have your own there and I will advise you to vote for her. This Masangwi is a mercenary, he cares about nothing but himself. Why is he running away from Machinjiri if he had represented his people well? Ask your self. He is coming with a gymic like painting the Zomba… Read more »

Arafat is correct about the amount of hypocrisy and patronage in the pictures. After all he is patron of that puny party.
