DPP tightens its grip in Malawi’s North

Member of Parliament (MP) for Nkhata Bay Central Constituency, Simon Vuwa Kaunda

MZUZU-(MaraviPost)-In a bid to hold on to its stronghold on the ground, Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) has embarked on conducting development rallies across the country.

Speaking on Sunday at Kachere Primary School Grounds in Nkhata Bay, Member of Parliament (MP) for Nkhata Bay Central Constituency, Simon Vuwa Kaunda, said as a ruling party, they organised the rally to thank the people of Nkhata Bay and the Northern Region for entrusting DPP again with leadership.

” Firstly, we decided to conduct this rally to thank the people here for voting again for DPP. Secondly, we also came to announce to the people the development package that the President, Professor Arthur Peter Muthalika, plans to implement here in the North,” Kaunda said.

Kaunda, who is also the Minister of Lands, Housing and Urban Development, reiterated that the government will implement Nkhata Bay Water Project, build secondary schools in every constituency and a better road network in the Northern Region.

Concurring with Vuwa Kaunda, was Minister of Health and Population, Honouble Jappie Mhango, who was the Guest of Honour at the rally. Mhango said the government has left aside K8 billion meant to develop women and the youths in the country through micro loans.

“The DPP Government has a lot of development agenda to implement, not only here in the North but across the country. More developments such as human empowerment, water projects, hunger alleviation and road network, will be implemented all over Malawi,” said the Minister.

When Senior Chief Fukamapiri, in whose area the rally took place, asked the Minister to rehabilitate a health centre in the area, Mhango quickly said that the government will renovate not only the said hospital, but also all the other health facilities in the country.

Among other notable members at the rally was Ken Sanga who is DPP Regional Governor for the North.

DPP continues to rule the country after winning the 21 May watershed tripartite elections. Its electoral victory is still challenged by UTM and MCP leaders who allege that the polls were rigged.

The Constitutional Court has just completed hearing of the controversial case and it is yet to pass its verdict
