Felix Jumbe To Contest In SA North On DPP Ticket In 2019..’I Have Suffered A Lot In MCP With Chakwera’
Member of parliament for Salima Central Constituency has responded to the wishes of constituents in Salima North constituency who approached him to represent them in the coming 2019 elections under the Democratic Progressive Party ticket, saying he has had enough of Chakwera’s ill treatment and hate towards him for always challenging his unreasonable moves and decisions in opposition Malawi Congress Party.
Writing on his facebook page, Felix Jumbe said: ” it is no longer a secret, I have obliged to the wishes of people of Salima North that I should serve them for the first time under the DPP succumbing to the ill treatment i have had in MCP under Chakwera”.
Jumbe is reported to have met some grassroot structures in Salima North under the ruling Democratic Progressive Party where he accepted the request of the people in the presence of some top DPP officials.
Felix Jumbe will battle it out with Yona Kaphamtengo who is the Malawi Congress Party parliamentarian for the area.
Rumours are rife that Minister of Justice and constitutional Affairs James Tembenu will contest for the parliamentary seat in Salima Central, whose incumbent parliamentarian is Felix Jumbe.
