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.

Malawians are suffering now because of UDF


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.”
