Shadow Member of Parliament for Balaka central east constituency Yaumi Aufi Mpaweni has vowed to implement more development projects if given a fresh mandate to lead the constituency in the August house.
Mpaweni highlighted that during his two terms in office, the constituency has seen remarkable progress in various sectors.
Addressing a political rally at Ngwangwa primary school ground, Mpaweni mentioned achievements such as construction of learning blocks and teacher’s houses in various schools, provision of clean and portable water among other developments.
“As you can see here at Ngwangwa primary school we have a headmaster’s house, new school blocks, I can proudly and body say that I have contributed positively towards the construction of these structures” he said.
The aspiring legislator then assured the gathering of more development projects once he crosses the bridge on 21st may elections.
He also took the chance to caution the gathering against voting for a candidate basing on a particular party.
“Voting for a candidate because of his/her political party will yield you nothing. This time around, let’s usher into power leaders who are development oriented, those with the welfare of people at their hearts,” He sounded the caution.
On why he opted to stand on an independent ticket, the shadow member of parliament who sounded jovial and confident throughout his speech said the UDF primary elections in the constituency were marred with several irregularities as such his downfall was a plot.
Mpaweni has been a UDF member of parliament for Balaka central east constituency for the past two consecutive terms and now he is seeking a third term on an independent ticket.
