Atupele gears up for UDF campaign: Whistle-stop in Blantyre Sat, rally in Mangochi Masongola Sun

President of United Democratic Front (UDF), Atupele Muluzi, is kicking off his political campaign meetings with the electorate ahead of May 21 2019 Tripartite Elections on Saturday with a whistle-stop tour in Blantyre and then mass rally in Mangochi -Masongola constituency on Sunday.

Atupele Muluzi: UDF presidential candidate 

UDF spokesman Ken Ndanga said the official campaign  launch will be held later, saying the party will also unveil its manifesto with emphasis on a “new beginning” .

According to a programme released by UDF secretary general Kandi Padambo, UDF Vice President fit the South Lance Mbewe  will on Saturday be at Nkolokoti, Bangwe, Namiyango, Ndirande and Malabada.

The party said Atupele, whose running mate is Frank Mwenifumbo, will be holding a mass rally on Sunday at Majuni School ground , Mangochi-Masongola constituency.

Atupele, who is Minister of Health in President Peter Mutharika’s Cabinet, said he is now gained political experience and understanding of government “not of populist chants.”

He hopes to ride a wave of youthful optimism to victory, emulating Barack Obama, Emmanuel Macron and Justin Trudeau.

The young Muluzi, who is 40 years old, stressed that UDF seeks a new beginning and will launch a vigorous campaign better than 2014 when he drew mammoth crowds with the ‘Agenda for change’ crusade that is now reset with ‘new beginning’.

UDF came to power in 1994 after defeating Malawi Congress Party (MCP) in 1994. It swept seats in the Southern Region and most seats in the Central Region.

During the 1999 elections, UDF won 91 seats, but the figures continued to drop in the subsequent elections when it won 49 seats in 2004 and 16 in 2009.

If DPP lose the elections I will blame you Atupele for failing to help DPP retain state house. In fact your dad will be the most disappointed man see MCP back in power within his lifetime although he once campaigned for it in 2009.
Please bro you know you cant win and you know you can help us win
easily. Tagwira mwendo bwana!

It’s time Atupele accepts he has been ignored and duped by DPP, he’s not gonna be DPP’s running mate, rescue his dying father’s UDF from the toxic fangs of DPP. Atupele needs to move on or he will be considered a weak leader.
He should STOP flip-flopping, being ambivalent, being in DPP’s armpit at the same time pretending he’s a presidential candidate. Kusokola kwavuta basi.
His chess game has decimally failed, accept reality and move on.

He has nothing to lose after all, he is not standing, he will support Peter Mutharika

You don’t waste time to campaign in the areas you are strong but where you are weak. UDF strategy is upside down and Ken Ndanga has become irrelevant in UDF politics.
