Newton Kambala: UTP interim leader

The  party will be called United Transformation Party (UTP) and it brings together Malawi’s business captains and other recycled politicians like Ian Kanyuka, Eunice Makangala.

The secretary general on interim basis is Alex Solanke deputised by William Jalani.

Other members include Janet Chikoko, Charles Mwambyale and Nevert Gondwe.

Other  sources have linked political rolling stone Humphrey Mvula to the party strategist while economist  Dr Matthews Chikaonda is said to be lured to join the ranks..

However, the launch of the party has faced hurdles after some members went to court stopping Kambala from being the interim leader.

This is just another party of townspeople, for townspeople, by townspeople. The transformation of Malawi will begin when the 83% of Malawians who are rural dwellers waken up and exercise the power to which their numbers entitle them. The lives of the majority of Malawians will be transformed when the political system meets the needs of the vast majority. Fortunately for the vultures and the hyenas of the towns and cities, the lions of the farms and villages are asleep. When they awaken and organize themselves, we will see dramatic change. This is why it will be a long time… Read more »

I like the idea only anthu akutchulidwa muchipanichi ndinkhalamba zokha zokha. We want young people who can understand our problems as youths. Politics should not be a retirement package mitchana inu…. After retirement muzipita kukasamala zidzikulu nazonso zufuna kukuonani.

Bravo Mr Kambala for the courage to start a new party. I just have a word of advice… The likes of chikaonda and humprey Mvula are damaged goods that one should not even have in a new political party. I also want to take this opportunity to apologise on behalf of X party that has been a great disappointment to you and the rest of us. I personally wish you had waited a little bit longer before starting your own party. We still need you in party X. The problem right now is that we have a bad leader that… Read more »

The real owner of the party is Chikaonda and wants to be leader when he leaves PCL in December 2016. But others cant wait for him. Other senior members include Ziliro Chibambo and Humphrey Mvula.

Chikaonda can never be a follower!!!!! He is the one behind the injunction using other people as is typical of him.

Malawi wants a youthful party not these old people full of greed.
