“You know the political landscape is changing, the atmosphere is getting charged and we are now getting much into elections mood and therefore they will be lots of people masquerading as leaders of tomorrow but most of them will be very dishonest and I came here to warn these people to be vigilant against such people,” he said.

The Treasurer General said he was pleased with the support people in the area have for the party and its leadership. He then stressed the need for people to register and vote for DPP for continued progress of the nation.

“You should also register in large numbers so that you may vote, if you say you love Professor Arthur Peter Mutharika; you can only demonstrate that love by casting your vote for him, so let us register and vote for DPP,” he added.

Speaking during the meeting, DPP Director of Youth, Dyton Mussa appealed to youths of the party to be exemplary by respecting the elderly and engage in charity work as propagated by their father, President Professor Arthur Peter Mutharika.

“We are known for good deeds, we are the ambassadors of change, and we are unique; let us take care of the elderly and support the party. We also know there are some youths out there doing all sorts of evil in the name of DPP Youths, when actually they are not,” observed Mussa.
