It was God who chose me to be Blantyre Mayor, says Ndipo as he calls for 5 year terms for Mayors


Mayor for Blantyre City Wild Ndipo has trashed claims that he was favoured by the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) for him to win in the Mayoral polls.

Ndipo won the seat last month after beating former Mayor Noel Chalamanda.

There were claims by another DPP candidate in the Mayoral elections Louis Ngalande who said that the party wanted Ndipo to win.

Speaking to Malawi24, Ndipo said leadership comes from God and that is why people voted for him to be the mayor of the city of Blantyre.

“The claims that I was favoured by the party to win the mayor’s seat are very false as most candidates in the elections were all Democratic Progressive Party members,” said Ndipo.

Wild Ndipo says DPP leveled the playing field for aspirants.

He added that the party never played a role before and after the elections.

However, Ndipo said he believes in strategic leadership whereby people work together as unity is strength.

On his plans for the city, Ndipo said he wants a well-lit Blantyre city in which people would feel comfortable.

He however warned that for some plans to be implemented, there is need for Blantyre residents to pay city rates in time so that the money should help the city to develop.

Ndipo also supported claims that the two year term for Mayors in the country is too short.

“We should have a 5 year term so that one develops the city well but the two year term is too short for one to develop the city,” he said.

Meanwhile, the Mayor says he has a good working relationship with other councillors and he believes that they will work together to develop the city.

  4. Although i live far far from BT, Chalamanda was a good mayor and one of tie best in Malawi, even on a ministrial postion he can do better than these fools.

  5. Dpp is quite a destructive party in Malawi. The fact that Chalamanda refused to be a dpp member, they ( dpp thieves ) ganged up together against him to lose the election! Then someone unknown claims God gave him the win? kkkkkkk Thieves of the same nose move together!

  7. happy new months friends my name is Priscilla Mbangwe and this is a testimony of how i got cure from HIV/AIDS, i have being suffering from hiv/aids for the past 8 years without the expectation of being cure, i was on ARV, despite the ARV i was not comfortable and there was nothing i could do because i knew and i was told by my doctor that there is no cure for HIV/AIDS, my dream of getting cured came to past the day i came across a testimony like this on a facebook page of how someone was cured through the help of dr Abumen herbal medicine, i was advice its not real that there is no cure but something keep telling me to contact him, of which i later did and the cure wassent to me with an instruction on how to use it which i did accordingly and went for a test, to my greatest surprise the result was negative i could not hold back the tears of joy running down my chick my doctor was shocked, i thank God that am finally cured from hiv/aids, DR ABUMEN is an herbal specialist that can cure hiv/aids, cure, you can contact dr abumen on his email address and you can also call or whatsapp his number which is {+2347085071418} please share to save lives.

  8. Malawi24, who favoured the Lilongwe & Mzuzu Mayors?. Elections are long gone & wonder why one with all his/her senses be making noise about this when we have so much unplanned & unthought about business.

  9. Two years is morethan enough, in development its very helpful to implement good plans laid by our former coleagues, but if you try to ignore everything, then even 5years wont be enough

    with these so many gates in this country, two years its better man……..
