DPP’s Secretary General, Grelzedar Jeffrey was speaking in Nkhata Bay during a meeting she held at Nkhata Bay Boma alongside the DPP’s Campaign Director, Jappie Mhango and other party officials in the North.
Jeffrey said it is not surprising that people are joining the party following its sound leadership.
“People have noted that it is only the DPP which can help them, it is the DPP that has solutions to their problems hence they are joining the party in large numbers.
“Wherever we have been to; we are welcomed by a mammoth crowd an evidence enough that people love their party and its ideologies.
“The party is very strong in the region and I think this is a result of the good manifesto by the DPP leadership; you see we promised development and people have good roads, water, health facilities, education facilities and many others which are transforming their lives,” she said.
The Director of Campaign for the party, Jappie Mhango urged people to remain committed to the party.
“Doors are open, lets coordinate, unite, and continue making our party stronger,” said Mhango.
DPP Regional Governor for the North, Kenneth Sanga said people in the North commend the DPP-led government for the numerous development projects in the region.
“Under the leadership of President Professor Arthur Peter Mutharika every district is benefiting from the national cake, this is the reason people have vowed to support the DPP by voting for its Councilors, Members of Parliament and President,” said Sanga.
Presidential Advisor on Youths Affairs, Symon Vuwa Kaunda centered his address to Nkhata Bay, another DPP stronghold and a district which can’t be erased in the country’s history.
“We fought for freedom so that we could choose development we want and Nkhata Bay has received a number of intended development, we have a modern Mzuzu - Nkhata Bay Road, market, depot, jetty, hospital and others.
As such we are very appreciative to the DPP led government, our President has a good vision for this country,” said Vuwa Kaunda.
Meanwhile a Mzuzu resident and businessperson, Joe Nyirongo, says the current administration has shown impartiality in implementing infrastructure development projects across the country.
During the meeting scores of Peoples Party (PP) and Malawi Congress Party (MCP) members defected to the ruling DPP.
