"I don't even have a dime left on me for the next round of campaign activities," Dumelo said.
The money, he explained, was used for philanthropic works including paying the school fees of some people within the constituency in the run up to the primaries.
“I’ll have to look for money elsewhere for that exercise. As I speak with you, I’m lying flat on the ground. I need help to get back onto my feet. There’ll have to be voluntary contributions from my loved ones to see me through the next level of campaigning for the 2020 Parliamentary elections," he said.
Dumelo, however, explained that the money he spent does not amount to vote buying.
