Gogo Gowoka, one of the renowned MCP supporters in the north wrote “I am celebrating the loss of MP Rev. Malani Mtonga. This guy was rude and openly told the northerners that APM will not win. But the good thing is that him [Mtonga] has lost, kkkkk where ever he is he now understand the wrath of the northerners.”
Fearless youths activists, Steven Simsokwe who is now the councillor for Chilanga ward in Karonga openly told Mtonga that the north will not bowdown to DPP because the region has gained nothing from Mutharika in the past five years.
Simsokwe said only the southerners and people from eastern region are in love with the victory of DPP and has since asked Mtonga to apologize to the northerners.
“I know and have heard that DPP supporters in the north are flocking to Karonga south constituency of Malani Mtonga to celebrate the victory of APM. But Mtonga should know that we are seeing this. Why his constituency out of all big places in the north?. Wadya zambiri but he will vomit,” he said.

We have lost the MP seat but we have won the general elections with APM as the President. We people of Chilumba and other parts wish our president good success as he is geared to lead and transform Malawi for the next 5 years.”
