Former MMD Member of Parliament for Masaiti Constituency Jazzman Chikwakwa has urged the electorate not to vote for recycled leaders in the August 11, 2016 general elections.

Mr Chikwakwa said youths should instead be given an opportunity to seek political office and become elected representatives of people because they are capable of being leaders who can deliver for the electorate.

The former deputy minister and law maker in late President Chiluba’s MMD regime challenged youths to seek leadership at local and parliamentary levels

ZANIS reports that Mr. Chikwakwa said in Ndola today that for rural areas to see meaningful development there is need to elect capable leaders and not recycled politicians who he said have not been able to deliver in these areas.

Mr. Chikwakwa said government has constructed schools, health centers and roads but that the elected representatives in rural areas have done very little to add value to the developments.

He called on the people in rural areas especially on the Copperbelt province not to blame President Edgar Lungu if they elect recycled politicians who are failing to deliver in rural areas.

“Having recycled politicians or leaders whom we have identified that they have failed to deliver will not take us anywhere,”said Mr. Chikwakwa.

  1. Totally agree with you. It is time for new blood. All the parties should lean towards youth and get rid of those of have been MPS, councillors, for 10- 15 years without doing anything for their constituencies. Adoption should favour the youth, whether man or woman.

  2. Indeed don’t vote for Polical prostitutes and political Vagabonds who always move from one Political party to the other, Sosten Gwengwe who was Malawi Congress Party(MCP) Member of Parliament for Dedza central constituency lost his seat miserably after being picked to be Joyce Bandas Peoples party running mate in 2014, Marget Maimba, Kennedy Kalolo and Lilian Kapanda Phiri also lost their Parliamentary seats when they left MCP and join United Democratic Front(UDF) This is just the evidence of how the Chewa and Ngoni People from central region of Malawi reacted to Political Prostitutes.

    • IF THEY PERFORMED WELL THEY DESERVE TO BE RE-ADOPTED. AFTER ALL PF HAS SET %AGE COMPOSITION OF ADOPTIONS FOR PARLIAMENTARY SEATS. 40% MEN, ANOTHER 40% WOMEN AND THE REMAINING 20% FOR THE YOUTH. I THINK THIS IS GOOD. THAT MEANS RECYCLED MEN AND WOMEN WILL BE WITHIN THEIR RESPECTIVE %AGE BRACKETS AND NOT AFFECTING THE YOUTH. SO, IF ONE HAS BEEN A NON-PERFORMING RE-CYCLED MP, DEFINITELY HE OR SHE WOULD BE DROPPED IN PREFERENCE FOR A FRESH CANDIDATE WHETHER OLD OR YOUNG. I THINKECL GAVE IT AN EXCELLENT THOUGHT HERE. VIVA ECL.
