President Peter Mutharika’s advisor on youth affairs Symon Vuwa Kawunda, who is also ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) National Director of Logistics, went through unopposed in the party’s Nkhata Bay Central primary elections held at Kalambwe school ground.
According to presiding officer Reverend Mwayi Kamuyambeni, no one came forth to challenge Vuwa.
He was once a Member of Parliament for the constituency for ten years but lost to incumbent People’s Party leader in parliament Ralph Mhone in the 2014 tripartite elections.
The DPP membership’s unanimous approval of Kawunda’s parliamentary candidature, puts the former
cabinet minister on a seemingly positive start towards reclaiming his Nkhata Bay Central seat in the incoming polls.
“I am destined for victory,” Kaunda told his cheering supporters.
During the same primaries, Edwin Mhone won as DPP’s local government candidate for Nkhata Bay
Central Boma ward.
In his remarks, Kamuyambeni who is also DPP’s Director of Operations, urged the party’s supporters
to register for voting in their large numbers.
Apparently, voter registration in Nkhata Bay starts end of this month.
“Go and register so you vote for President Professor Arthur Peter Mutharika to continue his development agenda,” said Kamuyambeni.
Taking his turn, DPP Deputy Governor for Central Region Davie Kambalame called for unity among party members.
Last week, DPP Secretary General Glezelder Geffrey aemphasized that the party would not favour anyone and not entertain any acts violence during its primaries.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
