Blantyre — Aspiring Member of Parliament for Salima South Constituency, Uladi Mussa says he intends to author three political books based on his political career since 1994.
Mussa who is Peoples Party Vice President for the central region told the Malawi News Agency (Mana) that he has decided to write the books in order to convey political information he has had based on his political experience on what has been happening in the country.
He further said the books titled, 'My speeches in my political career', 'How to be successful in practical politics' and 'Characteristics of a ruling party' will enhance a reading culture among Malawians which he claimed has gone down.
"I am writing these three books because I am well versed with what has been happening in Malawi politics. You know I have been in active politics since 1994 and I have served in various political portfolios during the United Democratic Front (UDF) reign, Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) era and now the Peoples Party (PP) regime.
"As such, I want to put whatever knowledge I have gained over the years in writing so that Malawians should be able to know and understand the country's political background. On top of that, I have realized that the reading spirit among Malawians is slowly going down. So these books will act as a catalyst to encourage them to read more," boasted Mussa. According to Mussa who is currently sourcing and compiling information from his speeches, his first book 'My speeches in my political career' will be out by December this year.
"People should expect the first book to be out by December whilst the other books will follow. I can assure you that I have been encouraged by education experts and donors who have supported the idea," said Mussa who is currently serving as a Home Affairs Minister in Dr Joyce Banda's administration.
