Addressing a news conference at UDF Central Region headquarters, UDF senior members from Dedza, Lilongwe, Salima and Dowa, said accused the party president Atupele Muluzi for his decision of firing Iq’s Omar from the party.

Alex Waziri said the only way to resolve the differences is to call for a party national conference.

“We are calling NEC to hold a convention, we should elect new leaders who can lead the party towards the rightful direction,” said Waziri.

Waziri said during the convention “We will start afresh since Atupele has let us down,” Said Waziri.

Taking his turn UDF Governor for Salima Godfrey Katiwo praised former president Bakili Muluzi for taking care of the party during his time of leadership.

“We are asking Atupele to borrow a leaf from the former chair who had a passion and love for the party,” said Katiwo.

During the news conference, Omar’s Personal Assistant Ben Phiri (not related to State House’s aide) denied reports that Atupele gave Omar K23 million for campaigning during 2014 campaign.

    Atupele will be used just like his Father. Does he think Peter likes him? Peter knows he can not use technology in 2019 tog rig votes. So he nedsatt someone he wants runningmate that is Atupele. All the UDFVOTESRS will be counted as DDP and If DDP wins Atupele will be given VP position and Peter Does not need Chilima. Muntharika steal everything use People. Who has not ben used of Muntharikas? Bakili was used JB now Chilima. But Chilima is not Bakili or JB. There is VP syndrom in Malawi. Once president wins They throuw their VPS. It started with Bakili Bing and JB. It will happen with Peter and Chilima. Malawians are suffering to day because of Bakili. His son is as stupid as his Father. UDF is finished. So sad young People Who dont knows that MCP is the original and real party in Malawi. Others Come from the same party. That is why there is NO change in their governance and corruption. Development was during MCP. Th its MCP Who bult what UDF DDP PP is sittning on. The Who LL was built by MCP. Area 10. 12 3 etc. Hospital universitet good education good healthy sector agriculture. Malawi dead when Kamuzu dead.

    I’ve known Mr Omar since the birth of UDF. He is one of the true, veteran members of this party and deserves respect. Where was Atupele in 1993? Convention should be held, we want to do away with this little boy “ung’ono ung’ono.”

    Makani awa. Next year we will have no thing called UDF. I call upon all development cautious members who are still support this makani party to join the mighty MCP, the only party that has the welfare of Malawians at heart. Zina za blue izi ndi akuba.

    This UDF party is a pinnacle of politics without ideology.
