The United Democratic Front (UDF) president Atupele Austin (AA) Muluzi says the UDF party agenda is “Malawi first”and that the rest comes secondary.
The UDF leader, who is also Minister of Lands in the President Peter Mutharika cabinet, said this on Sunday at Mitondo Primary School ground in Chikwawa East Constituency.
Atupele, who was accompanied by a contingent of UDF members of parliament told thousands of jubilant UDF supporters that as leader of the UDF party , his priority is to make sure that he preaches unity and development pledged that he will make sure that all the members of parliament who won on the party ticket are given the necessary support so that they should deliver in their constituencies.
“Our agenda is Malawi first and rest is secondary,” said AA Muluzi.
“We want development in the areas where we are coming from and is what we are going to do and not waste time on petty politics,” said the UDF leader.
He told the supporters that members of parliament will be judged by what they delivered in their respective constituencies and nothing else.
AA Muluzi added: “Some misguided people will talk negative things about us but that should not make us lose our focus. We need to be united and make the UDF party mighty again.”
The UDF president said the country can not develop if political leaders spend more time castigating each instead of being united and plan on how the country can attain sustainable development.
He told the gathering that much as ” we can not all belong to one political party at least we must talk the same language when it comes to develop “.
However, he said that can only be achieved if political leaders can set aside their egos and put Malawi first.
