Speaking to media, Chikaonda said she has exercised her freedom as provided in the Constitution of Malawi in leaving DPP for MCP, a party of her choice.
“To say the truth, the developments being initiated by our President, Dr. Lazarus Chakwera need to be commended, and clearly shows how he is taking the country to a better level, if you see the entire leadership of MCP, you notice how it intends to rebuild the country. I saw it good to be part of this success.” Said Chikaonda.
Further, Chikaonda told reporters that the leadership of President Chakwera has been so humble in handling national issues.
“In Dr. Lazarus Chakwera, I see a servant leader. A leader that loves his country, because of different developmental projects that he has shown within the few years he has been in power.” Added Chikaonda.
Before joining MCP, Chikaonda served as the DPP’ National Deputy Director for Womens, she also once served as an MP for the party.
