The Malawi Congress Party currently boasts a shadow Member of Parliament for the recently delineated Salima Central East Constituency in the personage of Martha Mpinganjira Tembo. Ground-level testimonies attest that Martha has infused novel ideas into the growth trajectory of the Malawi Congress Party and her constituency. As the specter of the 2025 primary elections looms, Martha is poised to partake in the electoral fray, vying for candidacy.
There exists a palpable likelihood that Martha will find herself pitted against the erstwhile maverick, Joshua Chisa Mbele, who has recently executed a volte-face, manifesting a newfound affinity for the Chakwera government. This marks a departure from his erstwhile acerbic diatribes against the regime.
