Nankhumwa said this when he addressed a political rally in Bangwe Township in Blantyre. Multitudes of DPP supporters converged at desert ground, to witness what was Nankhumwa’s first rally in his capacity as the party’s vice president for the south.
Nankhumwa who is also Minister of Local Government urged DPP supported to remain united as the country moves towards 2019 elections. He strongly condemned political violence in the country.
“I would like to join President Professor Arthur Peter Mutharika in condemning the acts of violence because I have always been a firm believer of issue based politics without the use of violence,” said Nankhumwa.
Besides, Nankhumwa took time to remind the people about some of the development projects the DPP government has rolled out across the country within short period of time.
Nankhumwa urged the electorate to go for voter registration in their large numbers to accord themselves with the golden opportunity to vote in the 2019 tripartite elections.
Other government ministers, business captains and senior DPP officials including Regional Governor for the south Charles Mchacha attended the rally.
The rally televised live on private owned Times Group Television, first of its kind in Malawi for the ruling party to use private media for its functions.
Meanwhile, social commentators have described the huge turn out of people during the rally conducted by DPP Vice President for the South Kondwani Nankhumwa as a sign that the party continues to enjoy massive support from Malawians.
The Rally which attracted a mammoth crowd dubbed as a mother of all rallies in the southern region. According to one of the country’s social commentators Ben Navitcha the crowd has sent good political signals to the nation.
