Shadow councillor MkandawireMZUZU (MaraPost)–The independent shadow Jombo ward councilor Kelvin Mkandawire has challenged Mzuzu residents to vote for him in the May 20 2014 tripartite elections if the city is to look clean and planned.

Mkandawire made the remarks on Tuesday in an interview outside Mzuzu City Council offices soon after submitting his nomination papers to the constituency returning officer in his bid to contest as the city’s councilor.

“Mzuzu is currently very dirty and its structures are in squatters so the council would need to work together with me the expert to reclaim its beauty,” Mkandawire told the Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) stringer.

He added that if given the mandate to rule the city, he will civic educate the city’s residents on the goodness of cleanliness and paying revenue so that they handsomely pay to turn-around its hygiene.

Mkandawire, a University of Malawi graduate in electrical Engineering in the years 1969-1972 said he has better negotiating skills which will help the council collect revenue without problems for the development of Mzuzu town and the betterment of the residents.

The post graduate of Trondeimhelm University who tumbled twice in the Mzimba Central Parliament ally and presidential elections of 2004 and 2009 said if given chance he will manage the waste disposal system as the current one the council uses is not ideal as people can easily contract diseases.

The former Electricity Supply Commission of Malawi (ESCOM)chief Engineer for transition and distribution said given chance he will create better earth roads to allow fire brigade vehicles to put out fire effectively.

Meanwhile, the Mzuzu city constituency Returning officer Lobbo Mhango has advised Mkandawire to avoid a campaign of emotions but stick to facts of development if he is to make it on May 20 elections.
