Kabwabwa Ward candidate for Malawi Congress Party, Florence Kamtogo, on Friday outclassed fellow aspirants in a debate National Initiative for Civic Education (Nice) Trust organised.
Kamtogo demonstrated understanding of the needs of the voters such as provision of health services in the area which has only one clinic serving thousands of people.
While others never mentioned the inclusion of chiefs in planning development projects, Kamtogo recognised that chiefs play an important role in planning because they live with people and know their needs better.
Said Kamtogo: “I will begin with basics of clearing the environment to eradicate some health related challenges.”
On his part, United Democratic Front aspirant Alins Chirwa pledged part of his pay to community volunteers.
Mercy Mpakani of Democratic Progressive Party and Collins Chiyenda of UTM Party told voters that they will build school blocks in the area, a task facilitated by members of Parliament.
The debate was meant to give candidates a chance to sell their manifestos.
