“As we come closer to the parliamentary election, I encourage you to entrust me with your vote and voice to serve you fully well at the house of parliament – a mandate that I want you to entrust me and serve as a representative, and I am deeply moved by the expression of confidence from my supporters within the constituency and thank everyone from the core of my heart.”

“My office will be open to all, and I will create an open door policy and create an office in the constituency where people within the constituency can visit and lodge their views, concerns, suggestion and needs, and in my tenure, I will establish a constituency development committee to steer the development initiatives of the constituency and I will pledge to contribute D5000 every month to the constituency.
