Mwenifumbo admires his counterpart Mwalwanda for getting much support from MCP, CFT

BLANTYRE-(MaraviPost)—As the Karonga Central Constituency is increasingly becoming a boiling pot of emotions ahead of the by-elections, UTM candidate Frank Mwenifumbo has bemoaned lack of support from his party while his counterpart Leonard Mwalwanda is enjoying plenty support from the ruling Malawi Congress Party (MCP) and Citizens For Transformation (CFT), a political movement that was founded by Minister of Civic Education and National Unity Timothy Mtambo.

Mwenefumbo, whose bid for the seat has enjoyed support from the Minister of Tourism who is also Vice President of UTM, has claimed that he is doing the campaign on his own without any support from his party.

Other UTM officials who visited Karonga Central to drum support for Mwenefumbo include. Patricia Kaliati, who is the Minister of Gender and former First Lady, Callister Mutharika, a high ranking official in the UTM.

Mwenefumbo has made the allegations while admiring his counterpart, Leonard Mwalwanda, who is receiving effective support from MCP and CFT officials.

“That’s what it costs when you compete with an opponent financed and backed by tax payers. At least it should bother every Malawian to ask the question why on earth expensive cars are rolling all the way from Capital Hill to campain for particular candidate using public funds/tax payers money.

“I am using my private resources and I am not answerable to anyone,” ranted Mwenifumbo on social media.

Mwenefumbo’s outcries have emerged following MEC’s released voter registration statistics in the Constituency whereby his base, Mwenilondo, has emerged with 1, 948 registered voters against Mwalwanda’s base, Mlale, which has recorded 8,307. The third polling centre, Lupembe, has recorded 5,927 registered voters and is considered a no man’s zone where support sways from side to side over the years.

The seat fell vacant following the death of Cornelius Mwalwanda of Malawi Congress Party.

During the 2014 Tripartite Elections, Mwenilondo area in Karonga Central Constituency was nicknamed Benghazi following frequent clashes between supporters of Frank Tumpale Mwenifumbo and late Cornelius Mwalwanda.

Libya’s second populous city of Benghazi became infamous across the world for the killing of US Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens on September 11, 2012 in a terrorist attack.
