This picture provides answers to our current political climate: 1. Chilima is not a political novice. 2. DPP is a branch of UDF 3. UDF has not crossed any floor 4. Atupele and Saulos will be on the DPP presidential ticket in 2019. The problem is who will lead the ticket. 5.

I hope Chilima will attend the memorial, Dumbo Lemani was Chilima’s godfather. Dumbo helped Chilima in everything, I am also 101% sure that Dr Bakili Muluzi, the Former President of Malawi will b there. It was Dumbo Lemani who introduced Bingu wa Mutharika to Dr Bakili Muluzi when Bingu was in dire straits and was offered a job at RBM.
