Malawi Congress Party youth arm, Friends of Chakwera, have launched an unstoppable money hunting campaign ahead of 2019 Presidential, Parliamentary and Local Government Polls.
The campaign reached its climax recently when the group organized a mock wedding aimed at raising money for their day to day activities.
Malawi will go to the polls following the expiration of the five year term of current President Professor Arthur Peter Mutharika, Ward Councilors and 193 Members of Parliament in May 2019.
Friends of Chakwera Chairperson, Lesten Chinkhota, said the group has lined up a lot of services which require financial support. “We want a lot of money to implement our activities. That is why we have in mind lining up different activities which will help to generate some resources.” said Chinkhota while referring to one of the income generating activities, mock wedding.
Chinkhota said youth are the most important party component which can help to propel the political party to the greater heights. Concurring with Chinkhota, another Friends of Chakwera senior member, Macdonald Chisonga said the group wants to visit almost every part of Malawi in order to revamp the party. “We want to visit Northern, Southern, Eastern and some parts of the Central region, which is why we need money.” said Chisonga.
