Minister of Transport and Public Works Jappie Mhango has mocked people from the northern region, telling them to stop dreaming of ruling the country.
Mhango said this on Sunday in Luweredzi in Mzimba after officially opening a bridge.
He said the ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) won the 2014 election because its base is in the south which is more populated than any other region in the country.
“Let us face the truth here, the north cannot produce a president. We should just join the DPP which is assured of ruling the country,” he said.
Mhango also trashed the northern block being championed by Rumphi East Member of Parliament Kamlepo Kalua who is also opposition People’s Party (PP) third Vice President for the North, saying grouping is baseless.
He said the DPP government is not selective when it comes to development activities.
