Shadow MPs team up against UTM legislator Chirwa in Mzimba Luwerezi constituency

MZUZU-(MaraviPost)-Communities in Mzimba Luwerezi constituency have vehemently denied allegations that the incumbent UTM legislator, Samuel “Chimukwevu” Chirwa has failed to bring development projects in the area since voted into power in 2019.

In social media, anti-UTM followers have been spreading information that Chirwa has failed to bring tangible development projects in the area.

For instance, one of Malawi Congress Party (MCP) social media personnel, Easter Gondwe who is from the same area on Thursday asked MP Chirwa to renovate Luwerezi police station out of MK100 million Community Development Fund (CDF).

“MP wa Mzimba Luwerezi pa 100 million ija cotsanipo pang’ono mutikonzele police station ija, chifukwa nde palibe zomwe mukutithandiza ku dela kwathuku bwana Sam Chirwa.

“MP of Luwerezi constituency, out of 100 million kwacha CDF please help us to renovate our police station because as of now, there is nothing you are doing as far as development projects are concerned],” she posted.

However, number of the community spoke to this publication including the area VDC chairperson rubbished the allegations.

The VDC chairperson, Master Makombe said for example Luwerezi police station is still functional courtesy of CDF under the leadership of MP Chirwa.

“That is not true. As a person who is heading a development committee in the area, I can tell you that the allegations are not true. The same police station they’re talking about is functional because of the incumbent Legislator,” he said.

Makombe believe that the allegations are from shadow MPs who have resurrected ahead 2025 elections.

According to him, such issues were not there in the past but have started as some politicians have shown interest to challenge the current MP in 2025 election.

“I have sent you a picture of Luwerezi police station which is in good shape. This is the station which was torched by angry community after a disagreement with the law enforcers in 2019.

“However, MP Chirwa managed to renovate it with CDF and as I am talking it is alive,” he added.

In his remarks, MP Chirwa told this publication in a phone interview that he is aware that some people have started spreading fake news against him in the media.

Chirwa however asked journalists to go on the ground before publishing such “hearsays.”

“At first there was a fake story that I am bankrupt. This story was aimed at persuading authority to declare my post vacant but after investigation it was discovered that the story was fake.

“After that, it is when they are spreading fake news that I have performed poorly in my area. And as if I have misused CDF. But as journalist, you can go on the ground,” he said.

Northern region political commentators including Youth for Action Campaign (YAC) executive director, Jack Msiska described the allegations as unfounded and retrogressive.

Msiska whose organization has been or is on the ground scrutinizing what legislators are doing with CDF in their respective areas said as far as Mzimba Luwerezi constituency is concerned, the incumbent legislator Samuel Chirwa is on top especially when it comes to development.

Msiska said his organization will soon hold an interface meeting in the area in order to deal with the development.
