MIA and MCP aspirants


BLANTYRE-(MaraviPost)-The First Vice President of Malawi Congress Party (MCP) who is also the party’s running mate in the May 21 elections Sidik Mia on Tuesday hosted the party’s candidates from Eastern and Southern Region.


The meeting, which took place at his residence in Blantyre, was organized to kickstart the campaign termed “Operation Kwacha” in these regions.


The VP urged every candidate to go and  campaign for Dr. Lazarus Chakwera who is the party torchbearer that MCP forms government in May 2019.


During the meeting Mia donated 20,000 pieces of cloth to be shared equally among all the constituencies in eastern and southern regions.
