Matungulu MP aspirant Magdalene Ndawa has told people to be self-reliant saying that they are still in poverty for relying on politicians to give them money. Ms Ndawa, who was addressing residents of Kyaume Location, promised to initiate income generating projects for the people so they can become self-reliance.
"The reason why we still lag in poverty is because politicians to give the people handouts, thereby creating a culture of dependency," said Ms Ndawa, explaining that for youths and women to get funds from the government they must form groups and have projects for them to be funded. Ms Ndawa pledged her support to different women groups in Matungulu who practice catering, including by providing them with tents and sufurias.
She further stated that it was her good performance track in Matungulu West Ward that has seen a lot of people endorse her candidacy for the parliamentary seat so that she can bring development across the whole constituency. "Everyone can attest to the good work I have done in Matungulu West Ward, that is why many people endorsed my parliamentary candidature," she said.
