“So if I am elected MP, I will work towards improving the road, health infrastructure in Senanga Central constituency. I am an academician and am a businessman who is set bring development in the area,” Mr Mulowa said.

“I want to go and improve the lives of people in Senanga Central because they are going through a lot of problems. The few schools which are there only run up to grade nine. I want the area to have a high school which will have a high school going up to grade 12 level of education.
“The few schools which are there have only two to three teachers. So you can see that the education sector in the area is one o the sectors which needs a lot of support,” He said.
He also said, if elected MP, he will look at empowering the youths through developing the Timber and beef industry in the area which would help them to become entrepreneurs, instead of waiting for employment from the government.
