Malawi Congress Party torch bearer, Dr Lazarus Chakwera has settled for Richard Msowoya as his choice for running mate in the May Tripartite Elections.
Msowoya is expected to be unveiled any day , while the choice of number two comes from the Northern
region. This could be MCP’s strategy to garner some votes under the nose of People’s Party (PP) since Msowoya comes from Karonga, a PP stronghold.
The move could help MCP to get Northern region votes. Meanwhile, Gustave Kaliwo has been endorsed to be the party’s Secretary General replacing Christopher Daza, who ditched the party for a ministerial post in the PP government.
There were about two names that were proposed for the hot seat, Juliana Lunguzi and Gustave Kaliwo, but Kaliwo’s name attracted more votes.
