Malawi Congress Party (MCP) members from the diaspora have donated K7.2 million to cater for the party’s monitors deployed to polling centres across the country in today’s tripartite elections.
Speaking during a cheque presentation in Mzuzu Monday, MCP diaspora supporters’ representative, Dayson Chikolera, said the members raised the funds through contributions.
“One way of making the elections smooth and fair is also through controls, and this can be achieved if we have monitors in all the polling centres. Therefore, we want these monitors to be taken care of; their welfare has to be good so that they can be vigilant and do the job,” Chikolera said.
Receiving the donation, MCP second vice-president, Harry Mkandawire, commended the members from the diaspora for supporting the party.
“The money has come at the right time. We have a lot of activities which need money during and after polling day.Advertisement
“We want to thank the members because they love their party and appreciate the need to support the party during these critical moments. This means our monitors will be on the ground to ensure transparency during the elections,” Mkandawire said.
MCP has allocated monitors in almost all the 193 constituencies.
