Mzuzu City Deputy Mayor, Councillor Tone Mwenitete of Mzilawayingwe Ward has defected to Malawi Congress Party (MCP) from UTM.

MCP Regional Chairman for the North, Joseph Chavula, says the coming of the Deputy Mayor is one of the best political catches in Mzuzu City.

"I am very happy. The position of a Deputy Mayor is highly respected in our society. So this means people are having confidence in the leadership of Dr Lazarus Chakwera," explained Chavula.

Another councillor who has joined MCP is an independent councillor for Zolozolo West, Peterkins Mwale, who said he is convinced with development projects taking place in his ward.

District Chairperson for Mzuzu City, Franklin Hara, advised the members to always observe discipline to enhance the party's operations.
