Kunkuyu To Contest In John Tembo’s Constituency – Donates Ambulance
Tourism, Wildlife and Culture Minister Moses Kunkuyu has launched a parliamentary seat campaign in John Tembo’s Dedza South Constituency by donating an ambulance to the constituents.
Tembo once complained that Kunkuyu was summoning chiefs in the area to rally against but kunkuyu denied the allegations saying he had no intention to contest in the area.
However last week Kunkuyu bade farewell to his Blantyre City South constituents where he has been member of Parliament (MP) since the 2009 general elections.
Kunkuyu told Dedza South constituenty residents that he has moved from Blantyre City South constituency because he has realised that it is high time he returned to develop his mother’s home
Kunkuyu said: “I have done a lot of developments in Blantyre South Constituency but I thought it is also important for me to help my home district.
“My mother fell sick and died because there was no ambulance to carry her to the hospital. Since her death, I have been concerned about deaths of mothers in our country. But since I don’t have enough resources to help all mothers in the country, I have chosen to donate this ambulance to this constituency.”
Traditional Authority (T/A)Kamenyagwaza said the ambulance has come at a right time and promised Kunkuyu that chiefs will take care of it.
“Chiefs have already formed a committee which will be managing this ambulance. Honourable Kunkuyu wanted to be responsible for fuel expenses of this ambulance, but we have told him that what he has done [to donate the ambulance] is enough, hence chiefs will be contributing money for fuel,” said Kamenyagwaza.
Luckily for Kunkuyu he will not face JZU this time around as he retired from active politics after falling out with MCP members who refused to change the party’s constitution to allow him run again as president.
