The Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) aspiring parliamentarian for Chikhwawa West constituency, Kennedy Maluwa and his United Democratic Front (UDF) counterpart Moses Dossi have blamed the incumbent Member of Parliament (MP) for the area John Zingale for not handling the Constituency Development Fund (CDF) and Local Development Fund in a professional manner.
The two candidates said this is why Chapananga is not realizing meaningful development hence the need for the electorates to critically scrutinize and analyze the candidate who can take them to prosperity ahead of the May 20, 2014 tripartite elections.
Dossi and Maluwa said this in a separate interview after presenting their nominations papers to Malawi Electoral Commission on Tuesday at Chikhwawa District Council Hall.
Maluwa who is standing under DPP ticket said people of his area are lacking many meaningful developmental projects because the incumbent MP (Zingale) has not been using the two basket funds for its intended purposes and that he doesn’t consult people of his area on how he can utilize the two funds.
He also described the Chapananga road construction which is currently being constructed in the area as political campaign gimmick by the current administration.
“The DPP new administration will make sure that the Chapananga road should take shape and be completed in time. Secondly I want to make my area to be food secured so that no one should die of hunger,” he said.
He further said once he is voted in to parliament he would also make sure that he develops Chapananga by bringing portable water, clinics and modern school blocks.
In a separate interview UDF aspiring MP for the area Moses Dossi echoed same sentiments with Maluwa as he said there is need to consult the rural masses on how LDF and CDF funds should be used.
“When I was parliamentarian for the area I used to consult the people and that is why I managed to brought electricity and modern secondary school. Therefore I am of the view that the incumbent MP has not been
handling CDF and LDF in a professional manner and that is why people of Chapananga are still starving for development,” said Dossi.
Dossi added that this is why the electorates have shown interest to vote for him again as their MP ahead of the forthcoming tripartite polls.
On Chapananga road, Dossi said the project would be his priority.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
