Mayaya a politician who masquerades as human rights activist – UDF

United Democratic Front (UDF) has described human rights campaigner Billy Mayaya as a politician who is wearing an activist’s coat.

Mayaya: Petitioned Speaker on UDF MPs

UDF spokesperson Ken Ndanga made the claims after accusing Mayaya of orchestrating a conspiracy against his party.

This follows Mayaya’s petition to the Speaker of Parliament Richard Msowoya asking him to guarantee “orderliness and decorum” in the august House by declaring vacant the seats of the UDF MPs who recently moved to government benches.

Mayaya said the MPs should lose their seats for what he called the “unprocedural manner” in which they joined the government side.

But UDF said Mayaya was advancing a political conspiracy.

“UDF knows that Billy Mayaya masquerades as human rights activist,” said Ndanga as quoted in the press.

“We know the conspiracy that is going on, we will soon expose it,” the UDF spokesman added.

“UDF is not afraid of this conspiracy. Billy Mayaya has no business with UDF, if there is one party that understands Section 65 it is UDF,” said Ndanga.

Mayaya however asserts that he is doing his activism role, saying “politicians cannot continue to usurp the people’s power to bring their representatives into line.”

The move by UDF MPs has divided opinion among legal experts with some arguing that the MPs have crossed the floor while others argue that the party has not violated any law.

Kumangoti ung’onoung’ono. Kupusa basi. Ung’onoung’ono ndi m’mutu momwe. U are so stupid UDF guys that u are frailing to realise that you have crossed the floor. Ask Chambo MP for Mangochi North Constituency. He is aware that UDF guys have crossed the floor. He wanted to join UDF but he has posed coz he is afraid of crossing the floor. Let me remind you UDF has done this coz would want to fulfil their personal agenda and not agenda of the electorate. If UDF wanted to support GVT would they not support DPP from opposition benches. Tiyeni nazona. Let your… Read more »

UDF!!! YOU CAN CALL MAYAYA WHATEVER YOU WANT BUT THE TRUTH OF THE MATTER IS THAT YOUR EASTERN REGION (MANGOCHI-MACHINGA) PARTY HAS LOST DIRECTION. FIRST IT WAS ATUPELE SITTING ON THE GOVERNMENT BENCH WHILE HIS TEAM WAS IN OPPOSITION. IT WAS LIKE A FOOTBALL COACH SITTING ON THE OPPONENT BENCH WHILE ASKING SOMEONE TO MANAGE HIS TEAM WHEN HE IS AWAY. NOW THE WHOLE UDF HAS MOVED TO GOVT BENCH, UDF MAY NOT HAVE JOINED THE GOVT PERSE, BUT THE HAVE RENOUNCED THEIR IDEALS WHICH THEY ADVANCED DURING ELECTIONS WHICH SAW SOME OF THE MPS BEING VOTED FOR. WAS IT… Read more »

I am of the view that the members did not cross the floor per se, they got voted as UDF and they have not denounced their UDF membership. They were voted as UDF not opposition or Ruling. Secondly, these guys consulted the speaker who gladly granted them their wish and in his own words the speaker told us that he was the sole authority who decide where a member sits in the house and he saw no problem with UDF’s request let alone one member of the party sitting on the other side. If he applies section 65, in this… Read more »
