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 before telephone and internet services are universally available in Malawi. Such availability would threaten the status quo.

    Hey Malawians enough of politics. Can we have a rest please ndale zinatikwana what new ideas can these people bring. I respected Mr kambala when he invested in neighboring countries but now I l think twice.

    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.

    Hey, we dont need more additional parties in Malawi, Malawi need two parties only, thus MCP and UDF/DPP. by the way palibe omwe akusatileni.

    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 is surrounded by people who are not intelligent. They have not helped him olo ndi pang’ono pomwe. What we can hope for is that after 2019 when this leader is out, a new leader will rise up and breath fresh life into the party. Hopefully the people that are surrounding the leader now will be gone and we will have new knowledge and wisdom. I wish I could convince you not to waste your money on this new party but rather be patient until party X is well organised. I totally understand your frustration with party X and its leadership. We all are. These people are stubborn and they are in a fool’s paradise. They can’t see that the leader can’t be forced to be what he is not and what he could never be. It is like forcing a fish to ride a bicycle. He just can’t. But then if you Mr Kambala decide to go ahead with this new party I will respect your decision. I’m just afraid anthu angokudyerani ndalama zanu. Zikomo wawa!

      You could just have mentioned the name of party X. We have ATI and freedom of speech.

    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.

  11. Chipapwiche Kajhalwiche says:

    mxxxxxxxxxxxiest…do we need one more party in bonyaland?

  12. gulugunya says:

    Which Humphrey Mvula? The same Mvula I know as the member of UDF? The same Mvula on radios as football commentetor on Uf…. 92.5? Are you sure Humphrey you are ready to call that thing Kambala as your president? Just look at it. Please I do respect you as my as a respectable man, but here you havent made a correct choice.

      These guys know that Malawians follow whichever they come across as new- Malawians fail to reason and politicians take advantage of that. Asiyeni alephere okha – Mwana akalilira fupa mulekere limfotere yekha

    A Malawi sitidzatheka zedi. Before even launching it, mwayamba kupita kaler ku ma court.

  19. What? says:

    What a poor start of a “GOOD” start of a party with some members going to court stopping one of them to be an interim leader! I hear the likes of Chimunthu Banda, Gospel Kazako, Mathews Chikaonda are there. I.E. another party from the Central with central based syndrome (kukangana) like this other party of death and darkness. Koma DPP idzayendadi moyera come 2019!
