ADRA Malawi congratulates Michael Usi for being appointed UTM running mate.

Adventist Development and Relief Agency (ADRA) Malawi has sent a congratulatory and good will message to its Ex-Country Executive Director Dr. Michael Usi who resigned to join frontline politics.

Dr Micheal Usi: Vice President nominee

This follows UTM presidential candidate Saulos Chilima naming his runningmate to be  Usi, director of strategic planning in UTM Party who now becomes the party’s vice-president as per the UTM Party constitution.

“Congratulations Dr. Michael B Usi ( former ADRA Malawi Programs Director ) for being appointed the official presidential running mate of United Transformation Party in the forthcoming Malawi Tripartite elections 2019. God be with you” reads a brief message posted on ADRA website..

Usi holds a doctorate from the University of Bedfordshire in the United Kingdom. He is also widely known by his nickname Manganya, a character in the Tikuferanji series. He is basically an actor and playwright, besides working as a corporate executive.

The position of Usi at ADRA was taken over Hastings Jabulani Lacha.

Blantyre-based political commentator and strategist Humphreys Mvula described Usi as a technocrat with experience in humanitarian work, civil society well educated and with a clean track record in as far as the politics of the country is concerned.

Meanwhile, Chilima appealed for support of UTM presidential ticket , urging Malawians to “allow a new generation to take charge”.

Chilima said the elections offer Malawians “an incomparable once-in-a-generation” opportunity to fix the country and set it going.

He said: “We must pull down the cobwebs of corruption and nepotism and unleash this nation’s true potential.”

Out of all the presidential aspirants so far, Michael Usi is the only one who understands issues facing ordinary Malawians. Thus going by his work experience and education. Munthu wa serious sagula lamba k100,000, munthu wa serious sasunga ndalama zokagulira chimanga kunyumba, munthu wa serious salandira donation nkulabwedza chifukwa wagwidwa, munthu wa serious savula azimayi, munthu wa serious samenya anthu chifukwa akusiyana maganizo. The list is endless. Nthawi yakwana yosintha kayendesedwe ka dziko

Guys munthuyu olo mumpope chotani ine I am not impressed with his track record. ADRA is a very small organisation to produce a running mate for a big party like UTM. Just imagine if DPP unvails CADECOM or Livingstonia Synod Church and Society former director can you be convinced? If your answer will be no then it automically mean akupopedwa chifukwa chaTikuferanji which to me is the problem. We needed somebody more serious and I doubt very much if he was Saulosi’s choice.

Vuto lake kumpopa munthuyu tikuyambira pamwamba pomwe zayamba kukoma. Ine sindikumudzi background yake nde if he is indeed a genius tiyeni tiyambire mapoints akusecondary kenako which unima college he went. I know Saulosi anali kuMtendere Secondary anakhonza bwino anapita Ku Tchanco Social Science and wagwira ntchito in big companies like Unilever, Carlsberg and Airtel. True he has Masters and PhD but those qualifications have a lot to do with luck of securing scholarship or how rich you are for self sponsorship and not intelligence. You talk about him being more educated than Sadik Mia that’s comparing two different things. Sadik… Read more »

The name Mutharika was not in our ears before the year 2000. Bingu amassed only 8 votes nationwide in 1994. But in 2004, Bingu was sold out by Muluzi until he became the Head of State. There was no DPP before 2005 and now its one of the strongest political parties in Malawi. So, do not underestimate Dr Usi. He is a pillar and part of Malawi’s progress. He is a strategist. Let’s wait and see. That is a very perfect match for our elections in Malawi.

SDA Church be careful with politics. Because Usi belongs to SDA Church that’s why you are Congartulatiing him. Wait until May 21 you will see the storm

Congratulating somebody it doesn’t mean the Church is supporting him but that is our culture.
