Ken Zikhale Ng’oma, the Minister of Homeland and Security and also the Director of Strategic Planning for the Malawi Congress Party (MCP), expressed that under President Lazarus Chakwera’s leadership, the MCP is experiencing a growing wave of support. He characterized this as a strong indicator that the party is not on the verge of leaving government anytime soon.
Speaking at a political rally held at Mbulumbudzi Trading Centre in Chiradzulu yesterday, Zikhale asserted that the MCP-led government has effectively addressed issues like electricity shortages and other challenges facing the country. He contended that the party’s popularity is on the rise.
Furthermore, he encouraged individuals to join the party without hesitation, emphasizing the importance of collective effort in advancing the development of Malawi.
“Chiradzulu and Southern region at large should join MCP and enjoy the cake that central and Northern region is enjoying now, so that when we go for the next elections we win with over 70 percent votes,” he said.
Prior to the rally, the Minister paid a visit to the grieving family of the recently deceased Senior Chief Mpama, who passed away two weeks ago due to a heart attack.
During the rally, the minister made a commitment to build a soccer field in close proximity to Mbulumbudzi Trading Centre as a means of empowering the local youth.
Senior Chief Mchema, speaking at the event, made an appeal to the government to establish an ADMARC facility in Mbulumbudzi, citing a severe hunger crisis in the district.
Accompanying him at the event were other political figures, including Madam Florence Nyoni, the MCP Director of Women, Regional Chairman Peter Simbi, and MCP NEC member Charles Josh.
