Atupele accepts resignation of Omar as UDF  veep

The United Democratic Front (UDF) has announced that the party leader Atupele Muluzi has accepted the resignation of his deputy Iqbar Omar.

Omar: Resignation accepted

Omar: Resignation accepted

Omar confirmed that he offered his resignation to UDF for the position of party president.

He has however not withdrawn his party membership.

UDF spokesman Ken Ndanga confirmed to Nyasa Times in an interview that Omar “indeed resigned” from his position and that Muluzi has accepted the resignation “with immediate effect.”

“He resigned long time ago, the process has just been finalised,” said Ndanga.

He said Muluzi accepted the resignation “on request from party leaders in the central region.”

Added Ndanga: “This means then that the position of 1st Vice president of the party is now vacant until the party appoints a new person in the position.”

During the May 20 polls, Muluzi snubbed Omar when he picked Dr Godfrey Chapola as his running mate in the presidential race.

Muluzi took his party into a governing pack with the ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP). He is currently serving as Minister of Energy and Mining in the 20 member cabinet of President Prof Peter Mutharika.

  1. By the way, Where is the old man Godfrey Chapola, runningmate to mr. Atupele? Has he been thrown into the political waste basket?

    A shame that Atupele is the only one working with Govt from the UDF side, still don’t understand why he did not bargain for atleast 1 more cabinet post so they would have been 2, but alone, shame!!!

  7. Inenso ndachita resign. UDF ikupindulira banja la a Muluzi lokha. Bwana president, accept my resignation. Apa wadya balalikani basi.

  8. Being a party Veep does not necessarily mean you will automatically become running MATE,the powers to chose running mate rests in the hands of the President
    it’s unfortunate that NT writer chose to use the word(snub)
    As far as UDF is concerned there’s no bad blood between the President and its former veep-Omar’s blood remains yellow just like the rest of us
    It is my sincere hope that this post gonna be pervaded soon` as they said
    nature abhors vacuum”

    Inu tadikilani ndikuuzeni, chipani ichi tsogolo chilibe. Nkozombwa ndi amene ali ndi mphamvu chifukwa ndi Ben Phiri waku UDF. Ndiye kapikinini kamene kaja kali ndi nzeru? si amene anapanga contribute kuti UDF ilephele zisankho. koma abwana aja samamva amamvelabe failure ngati ameneyu. The downfall of UDF and Atupele is Nkozombwa, believe you me or not. Chair sizikumukhudza ata. Koma kugawanika ndiye nkosayamba mu UDF

    Can Omar wa standard 8 be president..that was a waste

  11. Bwampini says:

    Don’t you know that Atupere joins any govt in power because he wants to cover his father’s cases? Mark my words, this govt wl hardly continue with Muluzi’s cases started by Bingu. They will be after Cashgate because PP is in the opposition benches. CASHGATE can be water under bridge if PP says;”Let’s run this govt together”. Changamukani ndi andalewa Malawians. Honest person can’t run Malawi. Amamusemera nyau kt anthu amude

  17. UDF still exists? I wonder. Chinatha the way Bakili wanted like nsalu ya makatani. I hate Bakili as he is the source of most of the problems we see today including corruption or cashgate. Bakili is resposible for the deterioration of all standards and that includes public schools and hospitals. I don’t why Pitala torelates this devil or evil man.

    Politics in Africa has politricks ingrafted. But politics everywhere is all about interests, maybe, his personal and group interests are no longer available or guaranteed in UDF.

    Its only MCP which is a legal personality and an institution on its own assured of perpetual continuity lose or win. The rest are just homesteads. Shameful!

  26. tsetsefly says:

    A serious minded person sees no life and no leadership in Atupele. Like his father Atupele is a fortune seeker and a gold digger who make party decisions unilaterally. By the end of next year this party will be lake the AFORD of this world. I do not even know if at all they will have the muscle to stand in 2009 elections. At the age of 35 or 36 whichever is correct Atupele is the biggest rolling stone all because of lust for evil money.

    UDF is a spent force. It is finished. It will just be swallowed by DPP. No sane Malawian will take UDF seriously.

    There are more reasons than what you have given. Here in Malawi all parties have got the real owners , by the end of the day the real owners don’t listen to any or take orders from the Nstional Excutives of the Parties.
    The party discsions are made by the family members of the parties.

    The principaled members will always withdraw their membership from family parties , at times you will find that they form their own parties or joining other parties.

  46. sayimoni bayisikolo says:

    Chipani cha UDF chinatha kalekale ngati makatani.Nothing is ticking in that yellow party.Atupele is busy licking Pitala ‘s ass for survival.
    Nobody normal would waste following that useless dead yellow party.Mr Omar u have made a good decision by going back to your shop at Malangalanga.Since the son of Muluzi has put money on top over his principles, his torn party like old curtains has been completely swallowed by the Dpp Lomwe party.
