Magande’s Party Will Not Contest 11/23 By-Elections

National Movement for Progress (NMP) Leader Ngandu Magande says his party has chosen not to take part in the November 23rd by elections to be held in Chongwe, Magoye, and Nakonde.
Speaking to 5fm, Magande confirmed that NMP has decided not to contest the seats as the party did not field candidates for Nakonde and Chongwe.
Commenting on Magoye, the NMP President said the party will not contest as it is still waiting for police investigations following the death of Willy Malambo, who was the party’s candidate for the area in the September 20 elections.
Magande further said it is sad that Malambo died in questionable circumstances and the party has no one of his caliber to contest the seat.

    Mr. Magande, that’s a wise decision. Keep that little money and pay for skul fees and even buy some fertiliser as the rains are here. you cant get any of these sets unfortunately. that’s a wise decision for once.

    Please ba tumfweko you guys must pursue the issue of having a refugee voted for MP. People are still concerned,eg in wusakile constuency MMD adopted a malawan savage pavyuma to stand for MP surely the boy is a foreigner, savage, jerabo, he is a copper thief, his young brother youngson rules kitwe with a iron fist. Please those that live in kitwe know very well what we are talking about.

    some comments are just too useless. mule kwatako umuchinshi kubantu. bushe nangu ni democracy nifi.

  20. Mwenya capetown   October 14, 2011 at 10:14 am

    I don’t care what MACHENDE does because to me he dosent exsist. Ishina ububi. My advice to politicians is that try to change your urgly names before thinking of presidence. Names like that of H.H are not user friendly.
