Atupele insists contesting for Malawi presidency: UDF manifesto launch at Civo Stadium on Sunday

United Democratic Front (UDF) presidential candidate Atupele Muluzi  has insisted that he is a contender of the presidential race in May 21 Tripartite Elections, dismissing fevered speculation he  had withdrawn, saying his campaign for “new beginning” starts Sunday when he launch election manifesto in Lilongwe.

Atupele Muluzi:  To lauch UDF manifesto at Civo Stadium

Muluzi is set to launch UDF manifesto at Civo Stadium where the party will be outlining sectoral areas of the economic, trade and industry, agriculture and health.

There have been social media rumours that the youthful presidential candidate had decided to withdraw from the race.

The Malawi Congress Party (MCP) supporters have been peddling stories that their party leader Lazarus Chakwera and his running mate Sidik Mia have beckoned Atupele to back their electoral coalition with Peoples Party (PP) of former president Joyce Banda.

While the ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) supporters have been projecting Atupele as one that is going to back President Peter Mutharika.

However, Atupele has insisted he is a flag bearer of UDF with Frank Tumpale Mwenifumbo as his running mate and will put up a good campaign, starting with the launch on Sunday.

Atupele said it is apparent that Malawians are looking for change in the way the affairs of the country are managed so that everybody benefits, promising to usher in the “new beginning”.

Apparently, while Atupele will be launching the UDF manifesto at Civo Stadium in Area 9, the DPP will be unveiling its electoral blue print at Kamuzu Institute for Sports in same Lilongwe the same day in a rare coincidence.

The two venues are about 10 kilometres apart.

Atupele, 40, said that he has what it takes to take the Malawi development agenda to greater heights.

“I have travelled my journey, amassed experience with key attributes of; delivery, leadership, steadfastness and patience,” he said.

“I have shown Malawians that we may differ political parties but develop Malawi. That we may differ in tribes but develop Malawi. That we may differ in religions but develop Malawi,” he added.

Atupele said unveiling electoral promises in the manifesto will be a launch pad for his “new beginning”.

Atupele was a minister in Joyce Banda’s government.

He resigned several months before 2014 elections to contest the presidency.

Today he lies he wants to demonstrate that different parties can work together.

He should just accept that his plan to be running mate to Mutharika have failed; plan to later take the boma back to UDF and avenge Bingu’s sin of 2005 when Bingu snatched the boma from UDF.

The only parties with realistic chances are DPP, UTM and MCP. It doesn’t help anyone voting for a person who can not win. Nonse amene mutakavotere UDF good luck koma mukakhala panokha mudzimvere chisoni. If it were possible udf would have gone into an alliance but other people in DPP are against that alliance. Atupele would have loved to be in DPP for the sake of his father koma zavuta kale. If tinadzisiya izi tiyetse zina

Your the man Atu. We’re behind you through thick and thin bro. Kaya wina afune asafune. You are the most credible and most likely to take Malawi to another level over time. The rest, extremely questionable. They are too vindictive. MCP gurus openly say that the crocodiles from kamuzu days are still alive. SKC is comparing chicken thieves to cashgate thieves. You go Sir, we got your back.
