Malawi Congress Party (MCP) has promised people of Nsanje that it will develop Nsanje South Constituency once the party takes power on 21st May.
Abida Mia, wife to MCP Vice President Sidik Mia, made the revelation on Tuesday when she visited Nsanje South Constituency to present and drum up support for the party’s torchbearer for the constituency Maxon Kadalinga.
Speaking during the gathering, Mia said people are aware of lack of development in their own area and it was time to assess if they want to usher into power the same individuals that have failed to keep their promise but keep on lying to them.
“Do you have a vibrant health centre, does your school have enough teachers, is the road good enough to say we have development here? Now why should you vote for the same people who have been there for five years but have not done any development,” wondered Mia.
Mia warned the people to be aware of the tactics the current government is making showcasing that it wants to develop the area when it had been silent for the past four years, she said such tricks should not fool them to believe government is development conscious.
She also promised to rehabilitate a roof that was blown off by wind at Ntowe Community Day Secondary School to let learners attend classes in a healthy and conducive environment and also assured that she will provide sporting materials to allow the youth do sporting activities.
Ironically, the DPP led government has embarked on a project to construct Nsanje- Marka road that is an all-weather road and is in bad shape.
During the launch of the start of construction of the road project, Malawi Roads Authority’s chair Brown Mpinganjira promised that the 28 Km road will take 18 months to be completed to ease people’s nightmares as the use the eroded current mud road.
In his speech, Kadalinga assured the electorate that he will not disappoint if they usher him into power since he is representing a party that has development at heart for the people of Nsanje South area.
“We, don’t have an ambulance, the teachers have no houses, we don’t have a borehole, the only borehole we have is the one at this school that the community and learners use which in most times inconveniences their learning,” said Kadalinga.
Kadalinga was declared by MCP after there was a controversy between Bester Hassan Chiungano and Kadalinga as to who shall represent the party after three primary elections.
