UDF Governor denies attacking Atupele at Lucius Banda rally

United Democratic Front (UDF) District  Governor  for  Balaka  Ngwangwa, Saidi Mdogo has  distanced  himself  from statement  he is alleged  to have  made  at a rally  address  by  Balaka North  parliamentarian,  Lucius Banda criticising  the party president  Atupele Muluzi.

The rally Lucius Banda addressed in Balaka

Mdogo  said  he was  surprised  that some supporters  were asking  him  about  his comment  when  he did not  at any  time  made can statement  apparently  attributed  to  him.

” As a District  Governor  for  Ngwangwa and my committee  we have  no  problems  with  our  president and  there is no way I can  attack him,” aid  Mdogo.

He said  that on the said  day  the  MP for  the constituency  had  some  activities  and  he had to attend  in his  capacity  as  District Governor.

Mdogo said  that  he has  intructions  from the  party  to  attend  meetings  addressed  by the MP  or party  officials  in the  area and  that  he was  simply  fulfilling  that.

However,  Mdogo said  he is  now  becoming  suspicious  considering  the reporting  that  came  out of the  Sunday  meeting  which  he said  was  attended by  a small  crowd  because  it was  not  a big  rally  as it is being  portrayed.

The District Governor  said his  loyalty is to the UDF  party  and  it’s  leadership  and  that  if he had  problems  he would  not  voice  them  on a public  rally.

He said  as person  who has  been in the  party  since  its conception  he understands  his role  and  would  not  allow  to be used  to  destroy  the  party  through  what  he  called  irresponsible  public  statements.

The governor  warned  that  from  the  look  of things  he  is  aware  of  the archtech  of  such  propaganda  and  that  he will  give  a report  to the  party.

    While it might not be proper to castigate Hon L. Banda personally as an individual but i feel duty bound to make some personal advice to the Honorable MP!!!
    The truth of the matter is that as an MP you are mandated to tow the party line at all cost! !You can have your opinion as an individual but your opinions should alwez be brought in front at executive meetings and iron out all differences!!
    It is common knowledge that pipo in ur constituency voted for UDF!!!
    Any traces that are contrary to the party beliefs and procedures will only put u in serious troubles.
    If u have problems with leadership book appointment and talk to him. Castigating one another in public wont help both of u!!!
    Rememnber, UDF will be a ruling party in 2019

      You seem to be contradicting yourself Mandaaliza. Don’t you see that even your party president is towing another party line by joining Dpp. Lucius is the one sticking to UDF. Atupele has abandoned UDF.
