UDF expels its vice president Omar

The United Democratic Front (UDF) has expelled it’s 1st Vice president of the party Iqbar Omar for gross misconduct contrary to the ideals and vision the party, Nyasa Times understands.

Omar:  Expelled from UDF

Omar: Expelled from UDF

The decision was made at  a National Executive Committee meeting of the party held  Friday at Golden Peackok Hotel.

According to UDF, Omar has been creating parallel structures without the knowledge of the party and its leadership in selected districts of the central region.

The is issue was brought to light when some party officials complained to the party through the office of the Secretary General, Kandi Padambo.

The party Disciplinary Committee chaired by second Vice President Charles Chikuwo  is said to have told the meeting that despite several attempts to hear his side of the story Omar has been defiant and shown unwillingness to appear before the committee.
At the meeting several members attested to the fact that Omar has his own Central Region committee and created district committees that report to him.

UDF spokesman Ken Ndanga confirmed to Nyasa Times about the decision and said the party has also expelled Zaituna Yusufu and Mr.Moyenda who until the decision was made were serving as Deputy Director of Women and Acting Regional Governor for Bua Region.

The party has also expelled a Mr. Magombo…. as deputy Governor for Central Region who for a long time was used as Regional Governor by Omar.

The meeting was chaired by UDF president, Atupele Muluzi  and attended by several UDF senior members including Dr. Godfrey Chapola,  the party’s running mate for 2014 elections.

Omar also attended the meeting. He could however not immediately comment.

  7. We just hate the readership of UDF and the former as well. MW was a Super countly before UDF took a place, from the date he took over the power, everything was upside down, of which it show’s us was savenge readership. He never knew the meaning of democurrency , even now he doesn’t. Very sad news for Malawi, the youth are going out side of the countly each and every day, they working there and paying taxs each and every day, as they buying things & so forth, of which it happens because of our second readership by selling goverment proparties. We really hate them and forever.

    Aaa UDF chinatha chipani ichi, utsogoleri wake ndiwadyera kupusitsa anzawo ndiye Omar pepeza akupanga zanzeru amvekere choka! Choka! Kumvetsa chisoni

  10. Tengupenya says:

    UDF rode on the luck of lack of alternatives. Then kunabwera “Chitsulo cha njanje”, nacho rode on the greed of the UDF leadership, and was handed power in a grueling campaign. Finally UDF decided to rebel against the State President it had sponsored, throwing all caution to the wind and blinded by power greed. Chitsulo cha njanje moved on and created another party. That dealt the final blow to UDF. It will not be easy to recover from that until the humble pie is swallowed. The humble pie is not a cabinet post in Chitsulo cha njanje’s party; but a soul searching rebuilding exercise for the UDF.

  17. Alice in wonderland says:

    Muluzi snr and other well meaning malawians founded the once mighty UDF. Then it was converted into a family venture and then later the family begun to destroy the party with their own hands with the support of some blind idiots in fulfillment of kutha ngati makatani prophecy. Ingochigulisani chips ichi kwa Bushiri. Otherwise chikatha kunyenyeka simuzatolapo kalikonse.

    Koma analyst, your comments are always objective. Keep it up.
    ……………………………………………………………………….
    Back to the issue at hand, obviously UDF is leaderless. Just ncheck ames of those who attended the indaba, no name has any impact on our political landscape. All are nonentities as far as Malawian politics is concerned.
    ……..
    Atupele is wrecking the party that his father and friends started way back 1992/3. Remember he was not there: he was repeating years and semesters in quark universities abroad until he graduated by compassion.
    Upon arrival back home his father forced him to take ‘leadership’ of the ‘party’ without any experience.
    Can we expect anything constructive from such son of an opportunistic politician?
    Nay!

      Thanks!

  26. mogasa club chairman says:

    analyst, for one to realise that he is being played for a fool, one must be intelligent enough and financially independent enough to think and act for ones own self. in this country, we follow the money and nothing else. the masses are too poor to have morality.

    you quoted that snake baelish before, i’ll quote varys. “petyr baelish would let westeros burn if he could be king of the ashes.”

    we have too many baelishes in this place.

    1. The Analyst says:

      Ha ha ha ha nice quote! And you are absolutely right!

  27. Denguzman says:

    Mmmm………down4 of UDF.

  28. TSAMBALIKWA says:

    What else do u expect from me Omar? Go to Zambia and ask Tulyenji Kaunda, Where is UNIP to today after Kenneth Kaunda handed over the Leadership of the party to his son? UDF inathatha kale kale ngati Makatani, Mr Omar join MCP and your supporters if not Nawe futhi uzophela njenga Amakatani.

    ………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….
    I wonder what the UDF leadership is thinking about, or if its thinking at all . . .or if it even exists at all.
    ………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….
    The memory hasnt yet escaped our mind when Atcheya just woke up and sided with MCP in 2009; and all UDF supporters became chickens overnight n kokoloko they crowed. The alliance was sadly short-lived after Tembos defeat n all supporters stopped being chickens. Come 2014, the suppoerters made loud yellow noise until defeated. The same Muluzi decides that you side with DPP n you all become blue n blue you still are now. But come 2019, you will field your own candidate n the supportes will become yellow again? Laughable!!!

    “Consider the postage stamp: its usefulness consists in the ability to stick to one thing til it gets there.” – Josh Billings
    …………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………
    All this game of thrones is being played for the benefit of one man – Bakili Muluzi-not to be prosecuted on his 1.7bn tag. And what are the rest of you benefiting? Nothing! Just being used! Really?
    …………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………
    Are you surprised therefore that parallel structures are being formed? How come some of us are not! The once ubiquitous party is nimbling into a bottomless pit n nobody seems to notice or care.
    …………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………
    If I were a UDF supporter I would realise am being taken advantage of the fool, which I am. I would also realise am on a queue thats not moving or going anywhere. I would therefore step back n rediscover myself coz am just as lost as my party.
