Malawi Congress Party (MCP) president Dr Lazarus Chakwera has laughed off President Peter Mutharika’s claims that he will develop the country to the level of Europe if re-elected saying the Malawi leader’s five year term in office has been a failure.
Chakwera made the remarks at Lobi trading centre in the area of Traditional Authority Kachere in Dedza district during a campaign rally he held.
Chakwera said communities should not be deceived by Mutharika’s false hopes saying he has already failed to develop the country.
“I am urging you to vote for MCP, the only party that will transform your livelihood because our target are the poor Malawians. Let us together bring change by removing DPP in power come 21st May,” said Chakwera.
On tribalism, Chakwera urged people in the district to vote for him saying the MCP led government has structures to ensure that every part of the country is included in development.
The MCP presidential candidate also called on Malawians to avoid violence on the polling day.
