Analyst tells Chilima to walk the talk on convention

A renowned political scientist from the University of Livingstonia has told newly launched United Transformation Movement (UTM) interim leader Saulos Chilima to quickly hold a convention in order to legitimize their positions.

Chilima: To hold elective  conference 

George Phiri said the movement regalia with his face on should have been printed after he is the legitimate leader of the movement, that
has since shaken the political establishment of the opposition Malawi Congress  Party (MCP) and the ruling Democratic Progressive Party
(DPP).
 “Right Honourable Chilima should be endorsed by movement delegates, they should do so as soon as possible. In fact, he should not have
unveiled his agenda before he is duly elected at a convention,” said Phiri.
He said Chilima has in the past criticized President Peter Mutharika and the DPP for their failure to hold a party convention, saying he
should now walk the talk.
But Chilima said recently that all positions will be up for grabs when the movement holds its convention.
The movement interim publicist Dr. Joseph Chidanti Malunga said what the movement did by printing the movement regalia and other items was just mere endorsement.
“This is not something knew although we want to do something knew, we will soon have an elective convention,” said Malunga.
Malunga also said that the movement would soon be unveiling its manifesto, the movement blue print for the country’s development
agenda.

Have you just come in from abroad. Do you really know what UTM is all about. UTM is there as a campaign vehicle for Chilima. In other words it is there to help Chilima attain his goal of making it to Sanjika. So no need for a convention. Until such a time that they register it as a party.

Why do people think backward including Chilima himself? Is there any need for electing another person when this movement was all about wanting Chilima to be the president? If there is going to be any election then its not what Calister suggested from the beginning. Yes if there is need for a convention, should only be for a purpose of electing other responsibilities

The analylist is wrong. The situation did not allow Chilima to hold a convention and then unveil the party . I think what he has done is the right move, that has taken the DPP by surprise but we should urge him and his followers to hold a convention as a democratic prerequisite. If he had done what Phiri is suggesting DPP was going to mess it up because his next move would have been predictable. When you know the strength of your enemy make sure you don’t take the same route that you use to go out when coming… Read more »
