DPP to still rule by 2030 says Mutharika

By Lucy Liponda

His Excellency the State President Ngwazi Dr Bingu wa Mutharika says that the ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) will still be running government affairs as the world clocks 2030.

The Malawian leader was speaking to thousands upon thousands of people in Zomba-Malosa constituency on Saturday.

In his address to the mammoth crowd, Ngwazi Dr Mutharika said that following the May 19th Presidential and Parliamentary polls, Malawians have chosen a good destiny for the country.

“The landslide victory on May 19th speaks of one thing that Malawians want development and nothing else,” he said to the ululating crowd.

He said that the people of this country have shown that they no longer want the opposition Malawi Congress Party (MCP) or the United Democratic Front (UDF) to come back into power because these parties don’t have a development agenda for the nation.

“UDF is dead and finished. I want Malawians to know that this party will no longer come back into power. As a result of the confidence that you have given me and the ruling DPP, be assured that the DPP will win the 2014 and 2019 elections and by 2030, DPP will still be in power,” he said to the excited crowd who cheered at the State President.

In his speech, the founder and leader of the ruling DPP said that Malawians are no longer looking backwards but moving forward with development for the country.

“It is for this reason that the people of Zomba-Malosa constituency are geared to vote for a DPP MP in the forth coming by-elections,” he said.

The Ngwazi also thanked the people of Zomba-Malosa constituency for voting for him as President and his Vice, Madame Joyce Banda into power.

He asked the people of the constituency to be very proud of their vote.

“This is a very special constituency in Malawi because you gave this country a Vice President and all of you from Zomba-Malosa must be proud of that,” he said.

Later this week, people from Zomba-Malosa constituency vote for their new Member of Parliament in by-elections set for August 14th.

The constituency seat became vacant following the election of Madame Joyce Banda as the country’s Vice President.

The Malawi Constitution does not allow individuals to hold two public offices.

Meanwhile, the people of the constituency have pledged to the State President Ngwazi Dr Bingu wa Mutharika to vote for the ruling party’s parliamentary candidate, Lawrence Idrissa Mpofu-Malawi Digest.
