Blue Sea In Mchinji As VP Saulos Chilima Drum Up Support For Ruling DPP’s Candidate Kamwana In The Coming By-Election
Malawi’s Vice President Saulos Chilima has today, stormed Mchinji Boma where the ruling Democratic Progressive Party is holding a political rally for their candidate in the coming by-election.
A while ago, the youthful Chilima was welcomed by thousands of people at Bua Primary school where a massive rally is to be held in readiness of a by-election which is slated for October 4, 2016.
Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) has fronted a businessman cum farmer Stephen Kamwani who emerged a winner in the primary elections which were held recently in area ahead of the polls.
In an interview with Malawi Independnet before the rally kick started, Kamwana said, “I have plans to develop the health sector in Mchinji West; and the district hospital lacks crucial facilities such as x-ray machines and a good kitchen. I would ensure that these problems which are affecting the smooth running of the hospital are addressed when I am elected.”
Mchinji West constituency fell vacant after the death of former MCP parliamentarian Billy Kanjira Banda who died in March this year, after collapsing in church.
Kamwani will compete with Malawi Congress Party (MP) candidate Jephther Mwale, a former teacher.
The constituency is one of the biggest in the district with 59,103 registered voters, stretching from the Boma in the central business district to the border with Zambia.
