Former First Lady of Malawi, Madame Callista Mutharika has urged the electorate in Karonga Central Constituency to cast their vote for UTM parliamentary candidate, Frank Tumpale Mwenifumbo on 10th November this year.
Mutharika made the call on Friday at a mega political campaign rally which UTM conducted, at Lupembe Full Primary School ground, to woo voters to vote for Frank Tumpale Mwenefumbo as their next legislator following the demise of Dr. Cornelius Thomson Mwalwanda who was Member of Parliament for the area.
Speaking to thousands gathered at the ground, Mutharika said people of Karonga Central Constituency are privileged to have Mwenifumbo who is a mature politician to easily respond to the socio-economic challenges they are currently facing like shortage of health facilities, good schools, road networks, potable water and market shelters just to mention but a few.
“This is your opportunity, and you should not allow it slip from your hands. You already have Mwenifumbo who will not need to be trained to be familiar with your problems; he knows them already. As you can see, he has already started playing roles befitting a Member of Parliament by constructing health facilities, schools and drilling boreholes for you,” she said.
To support development projects that Mwenifumbo has already initiated in the constituency, Mutharika has donated MK200,000.00 cash to help in the ongoing construction of the teachers’ houses at Lupembe Full Primary School.
Speaking to the media after the rally, Mwenifumbo said he will never relent and is set to represent the people of Karonga Central Constituency in Parliament and continue working hand in hand with them to further develop the area.
He said, “I will continue using my own resources to develop my constituency whether I will be voted into office or not because I’m passionate about the improving living standards of people in Karonga Central Constituency.
In a quest to walk the talk, Mwenifumbo has hired caterpillar graders at a cost of MK15 million to grade various roads at Gumi and other areas in his constituency.
