Democratic Progressive Party( DPP) presidential running mate, Everton Chimulirenji has urged all Malawians to practise togetherness as the Democratic Progressive Party seeks to continue developing the country.
Chimulirenji made the call on Saturday during the final day of a choir festival competition which brought together 17 participants drawn from Dowa Central constituency which is under Dr. Jean Nachika Kaliliani as its Member of Parliament.
This is not the first time for Dr. Kaliliani to hold such a choir festival competition inviting big gospel artists such as Thoko Katimba, Joseph Tembo and Favoured Martha to be judges following another event of 2014.
Speaking as a guest of honour, Chimulirenji said he was amused on how people of the district participated in the festival observing a large crowd that came to grace the festival as if it was a political party meeting.
He thanked people of the district for being God fearing as demonstrated by them coming in their large number.
The running mate said Dr. Kaliliani is setting a good example for women that they are leading in decision making policies and positions saying developing the country rests in the hands of all Malawians regardless of their party affiliations.
Chimulirenji then delivered a message of hope to the people of the district from Professor Arthur Peter Mutharika that he will continue to develop all areas so that development projects are implemented in the interest of all Malawians whether they are in the urban centres and rural villages.
In her remarks, Dr. Kaliliani said supporting the gospel choir festival competition was one way of expressing her love for music.
Sixty eight groups participated which only saw 3 top groups being given awards for victory.
