Citizen for Transformation (CFT) Commander in Chief Timothy Mtambo has refuted social media rumors that he is planning to run for a parliamentary seat in Karonga Central Constituency.

The statement made it clear that the human rights defender cum politician is not running for the parliamentary seat.
