4 DPP top officials join UTM: Rev Kamuyambeni leads defectors in Ntcheu

Four former Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) Members of Parliament (MPs)  from Ntcheu district together with other DPP members have joined UTM party.

Rev Kamuyambeni (r) joins UTM

The four are Asani Lipande,  former MP for Ntcheu North, Francis Mkungula former MP for Bwanje North, Mphatso Njojo, former shadow MP for Ntcheu central and reverend Mwai Kamuyambeni former MP for Ntcheu West and also former DPP’s director of operations.

UTM Deputy National Director of Elections, Bright Kawaga welcomed the members and urged them to work together towards strengthening the party.

“We have welcomed them as one way to build the party as UTM hence we urge them to work together as one,” he said.

Kawaga also said UTM is a party that has a future for them and that its vision is to grow and make sure that everyone is accomodated regardless of one’s region of origin.

In his remarks, Reverend Mwai Kamuyambeni who led the other members at the meeting, said his defection to UTM was necessitated  by Vice President Saulos Chilima’s style of leadership.

“I believe that Dr Saulos Chilima is a game changer so my thinking is that we need him now to be a game maker not a game changer anymore because he has done alot for the party and country at large so I thought its better for me to join UTM,”  Kamuyambeni said.

Rev Mwai Kamuyambeni’s defection to UTM puts to rest speculations on Kamuyambeni’s next political move after ditching the main opposition Democratic Progressive Party four weeks ago.

My question is: Will a viper change its blood because it has shade its scales? These are the same people who were clapping hands for APM last year. only the name DPP will die but the behaviour will be transferred to either UTM or MCP.

On point. After all, they just want to bounce back into parliament knowing that DPP is sinking big time. They are all former MPs meaning that people did not want them. Good people won ngakhale pa ticket la DPP yomweyo

The best is to do other things than voting during the voting day. We do not see anything fruitful out of voting. Malinga tinakutumula nkhalamba ija yopanda malo

It’s your constitutional right to vote or not,but by voting politicians not meeting people’s expectations can be removed as just happened recently.
