Traditional leaders and communities from the Karonga north west constituency, have asked Undule Mwakasungula, the former executive director of the Center for Human Rights and Rehabilitation (CHRR), to become their Member of Parliament (MP) through the 2019 elections.According to them, they are ready to give Mwakasungula enough support to win the 2019 general elections.

They said they are regretting why they voted for the current MP, John Bond Kamwambi, who has done nothing despite being on the government side.

“Mwakasungula has been helping us in different ways, even before he joined the CHRR. He has a loving heart to this constituency, we therefore don’t want to lose his work,” some community members said.

They said they have confidence in Mwakasungula, especially because he has demonstrated to be a good leader.

In his response, Mwakasungula, who is now a pastor, said he needs to ask God first, before responding to the community’s call.

“My response to this is that I have heard the people’s demand, but I need to pray over it first. I need to ask God if this is a mission He wants me to pursue. But it’s a great honour for me to have people’s trust, that I can serve them better. I thank God for all this grace,” Mwakasungula said.

The Executive Director for Karonga Youths for Justice and Development (KYJD), Steven Simsokwe said the constituency needs a strong and educated person because it is near the district town.

“This is a big constituency, it really needs to be represented by someone who is strong and educated,” Simsokwe said.

Simsokwe, one of the norther region’s fearless youth activists, said Mwakasungula deserves this because of his type of leadership and care for the community.
