Blantyre, :Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) Regional Governor for the South, Charles Mchacha has assured people in the country that the party would continue with its development programmes once given a fresh mandate at the May 21 polls.
Mchacha who is Deputy Minister of Homeland Security was speaking on Wednesday when he addressed a rally at Makhetha Primary School ground in Blantyre.
He said that the DPP-led government was the only reputable party to be entrusted with running the affairs of the country, arguing that other political parties have nothing to offer to Malawians in terms of development programmes.
The DPP under Professor Arthur Peter Mutharika is development-conscious and wants to continue developing this country beyond May this year.
Opposition parties have nothing to give Malawians after the general elections. I, therefore, urge all the electorates to vote for the DPP so that it continues implementing sound developmental programmes across the country, Mchacha emphasised.
He appealed to DPP loyalists to continue supporting President Mutharika, saying unity would make the party stronger. He expressed optimism that the DPP would triumph with a landslide at the May 21 elections.
I would like to appeal to DPP supporters to remain united so that during May 21 general elections Peter Mutharika should continue ruling this country. Malawians should know that DPP will come out victorious, the Governor said.
On killings and abductions of persons with albinism, Mchacha advised people to be vigilant against the malpractice, noting that the police would deal with anybody found on the wrong side of the law.
He appealed for concerted efforts in a bid to end the barbaric act and urged Malawians to desist from the blame game, saying the problem needed everyone’s involvement to address it.
Our brothers and sisters with albinism must not be killed or abducted like animals. Government will ensure that people with albinism are protected and whosoever engages in the barbaric act should face the long arm of the law, he warned, adding that the Police will not relent until sanity prevailed.
Malawi will hold Tripartite Elections on May 21 2019.
This year’s elections, described by Mutharika as watershed (a turning point or historic moment), will be the sixth since the birth of multiparty democracy.
