Atupele on grassroots outreach on DPP-UDF alliance

UDF and DPP have formed an electoral alliance to back the presidential candidature of  incumbent Professor Arthur Peter Mutharika as torchbearer.

On Saturday, Muluzi who remains hugely popular in the Eastern Region among the Yao tribesmen and Muslims, invited chiefs  in Machinga district led by Paramount Chief Kawinga at his Kapoloma Village home to brief them about the alliance.

UDF party supporters also converged after they got wind of the meeting.

In his remarks, Muluzi said the alliance has been formed to benefit Malawi and help President Mutharika spur development.

He said the two parties ventured into an electoral alliance because they have common goals and values that will benefit Malawians more, especially women and the youth.

Muluzi stressed that the alliance is founded on the citizens’ common good and that it was needed to unite Malawians who face tension and sometimes bitter disagreements.

Chiefs unanimously said they welcome the alliance .

The DPP-UDF alliance is poised to lock votes from the Eastern and Southern political regions   as the two groupings complement voter bases in a country that largely votes along regional and ethnic lines.

While Chilima and Chakwera are behaving like greedy goat their counterparts in DPP/UDF have hit the ground running. Politics of greed will never take Chakwera and Chilima anywhere. Chilima is just 46 why not take his time and allow Chakwera to lead? Is he really doing all this to help Malawi or he is part of the system to ensure that DPP rules forever?

Who told you that Chilima has got time?????? This is a popular vote. Good example is that Chilima got a million plus votes in the nullified elections if the figures were anything to go by yet his party only amassed 4 MPs yet Atupele got less than half of Chilima’s votes yet his Party got 10 MPs so Presidential is a total different ball game. Let them think it (alliance) through. Why Chilima become Vice President to Chakwera yet he is already a State Vice President.

He is 46 years old and has time on his side. Chilima got somewhere around 1 million votes and Chakwera got somewhere around 1.7 million votes.
