Some members of three political parties in Chiradzulu East Constituency; UTM, United Democratic Front (UDF) and People’s Party (PP) have declared to support independent parliamentary candidate, Joseph Nomale.

The parties said they are supporting Nomale because of his attractive manifesto. Apart from PP which is being represented in the race by Daniel Chikoja, the UDF and UTM are not fielding a candidate.

Clad in their party regalia, the supporters escorted Nomale to Ndunde Teachers Development Centre where he submitted his nomination papers on Thursday. 

In an interview, one of the supporters Samuel Chisale of the UDF said time has come for people to put their political differences aside and concentrate on development.

“Nomale has good policies like dairy farming. I believe through this initiative, many lives will be transformed through sales of milk, as households shall be given dairy cattle in a pass-on project,” he said.

Nomale himself reiterated his plans to spearhead dairy farming project through pass-on process to empower the people economically.

“I believe this project will be a ticket to economic independence among my constituents, when my term elapses,” he said.

Earlier, MCP parliamentary aspirant for the area Sheriff Dudha pledged to end water woes and extend Ndunde health centre.

Dudha also said once voted, he would initiate Mwanje-Mbulumbuzi road to be tarred, saying it is economically viable through farm produce cultivated in the area. 

PP’s Daniel Chikoja also presented his papers as well as three candidates who are battling the incumbent, Henry Mussa.
