Mammoth crowds of people attended President Peter Mutharika’s rally on Sunday in Bangwe where he asked them to continue supporting the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) led government for continued development.
Mutharika asked the Mammoth crowds to vote for DPP on May 21. “The DPP government has completed numerous development projects since attaining power in 2014 such as road networks, bridges, technical colleges, Malata and Cement subsidies and plenty more are under way pending completion in the following years hence the need to continue with the DPP leadership,” said Mutharika.
He was speaking at the end of a whistle stop tour in Blantyre. The large crowds have caused panic among the opposition parties which feel threatened that landslide victory is imminent for the ruling party. Opposition parties rallies are usually attended by a handful of people mostly top officials who travel from town.
A political analyst said the mammoth crowds that patronised Mutharika’s whistle stop tour on Sunday give hope to the DPP to win the elections.
