A Lilongwe-based gospel musician Ephraim Mulauzi says he will gift the presidential winner in the May 20 tripartite elections.
The 47-year-old musician, who has two albums to his credit, told The Nation yesterday that he will give one club (chibonga) to the winner and the other club to the running mate as one way of congratulating them.
Mulauzi, whose song Mbuye Wasankha President is enjoying airplay on most of the local radio stations, said he has spent only K2 000 to buy the two clubs which have a Malawian flag painted on them.
Mulauzi said: “In most of my gospel songs, I sing about leadership so I have thought it wise to give a gift to the presidential winner and his or her running mate. This is one of the ways that we [voters] can congratulate the winners in the coming elections.”
Mulauzi, who is a Ngoni by tribe, said he has chosen clubs as gifts because in his culture a club is a sign of victory.
Other notable songs of Mulauzi include Ndasankha Number One, Musiyeni Yesu Alamulire dziko. His two albums are Dziko Lapansi and Mbuye Wasankha President.
