Reports on social media alleged that Dr. Ngwenya’s blood pressure rose following the expected defeat to Msungama. Later in a telephone interview, Ngwenya said he was in good health and busy helping people in the Constituency. “I have just heard these rumors that was admitted at KCH but let me assure you that am just very well, and I have been very busy assisting people in the constituency,” said Ngwenya.
On reports that Ngwenya has uprooted the maize mill and closed his free medical care in the area, he also said it’s not true. “You can go now to the maize mill and to the hospital you will still be assisted.” said Ngwenya. Ngwenya said he has plans to transform lives of poor people and all the middle class.
