United Democratic Front (UDF) president Atupele Muluzi has hailed President Peter Mutharika and the DPP party for putting strides in trying to revive Malawi’s ailing economy and development.
Muluzi told state broadcaster MBC that he is confident that President Mutharika will continue providing transformational leadership for the good of the nation.
According to the UDF leader who was appointed as Minister of Mines, Energy and Natural Resources by Mutharika in June last year, said the current leadership is focussing on developmental issues unlike in previous governments whereby political issues took centre stage comparing to national building.
“I have a lot of confidence in this President and his vision,” said Muluzi, who lost to Mutharika last year in his first attempt to presidency.
“His [Mutharika] focus is on delivering and demonstrating results,” he added.
He therefore called upon Malawians to join hands and work together and focus on development of the nation rather than wasting time on political rhetoric.
Meanwhile, Muluzi has vowed to continue serving Mutharika governme.
He has also shot down specualtions that some UDF National Executive Committee (NEC) Members are unhappy with him for working closely with the government.
Muluzi claims the UDF party held a number of NEC meetings after the 2014 general elections and no one complained about his ministerial appointment by President Mutharika.
