Citizen of Likoma launches new wave of politics in Malawi

Christopher Ashems Songwe is an accomplished Information and Communications Technology (ICT) Service Management and Computer Forensics Specialist from Likoma District of Malawi. He was born-and-bred on the Island of Likoma where he wants to revolutionize politics.

In 2013 Christopher, responding to the call of his people, decided to become their substantive MP and represent them under the banner of the Malawi Congress Party — MCP.

#TheAfricanDream blog caught up with this aspiring MP to learn more about his political aspirations. We found out that in the early 80s, Christopher left the Island of Likoma for the mainlands of Malawi in pursuit of further education. It was while working in search of a better life that he observed first-hand the growing concerns and increasing levels of poverty and strife faced by people across the country and on the Islands of Chizumulu as well as Likoma.

Click on image to enlarge
I made my first phone call to Albert Mensah during the second week of January 2014 to request an interview during the wee hours of that morning and we had a fruitful conversation which ended with him agreeing to grant me an interview opportunity a week later.

It was an honor for me to chat with Albert on behalf of my blog’s audience and his cool demeanor really made us hit it off pretty smoothly. Our conversation lasted about half an hour within which we talked about his beginnings and passion for his work to the reason why he feels the best place for Africa’s youths to be is in Africa.
