Lilongwe, April 10:  President Dr. Joyce Banda who is also Presidential candidate for the People’s Party (PP) has drummed up support for the party’s shadow Member of Parliament for Lilongwe City North which has been under the Malawi Congress Party from 2009 to 2014.

President Banda drummed up support for the aspirant, Fredrick Mkula, at a rally held at Mteza Teachers Development Centre Ground in the area of Traditional Authority (TA) M’bang’ombe in Lilongwe whom she said has impressed her with the charity and development work he has been doing since 2004, long before expressing interest to become an MP.

“What has excited me most about Mkula is the fact that he has been doing a lot of work before he expressed interest to become an MP. He naturally interested in helping the poor and the national,” said Banda.

Banda, who said had never been briefed on projects which Mkula has been doing in the area, said Mkula is the right person to champion PP’s vision of transforming the area.

“Sosten Gwengwe, Mkula and I together with the two shadow councilors for the area have agreed to transform the lives of people living in this area. We want people to have decent houses. I want TA M’bang’ombe to help Mkula identify needy people whose lives can be transformed with the aim of giving them hope,” she said.

Banda said she was impressed to see that despite a short notice to organize a rally for her in less than 24 hours, Mkula had managed to show that the area supports PP.

“Let me apologize for giving my shadow MP half a day to organize a rally. I wanted to see for myself the situation on the ground. It is very easy for people to cheat a leader especially when you are not in touch with the people on the ground. This surprise was to verify what I have been hearing about this area,” said Banda

Mkula in his speech after being introduced by PP’s Provincial Chair for the Central Region, David Kambalame, outlined projects which he has been implementing in the area since 2004.

“While most aspirants are busy telling people what they will do once voted in to power, I will tell you what I am doing and what I will continue doing.

“I have a school feeding program in 28 schools where children eat porridge twice a week, 24 needy children are benefitting from my education fund, I have constructed a girl’s hostel at Mzumazi School with a capacity of 42 beds and solar power,” said Mkula.
