Atupele said this when he addressed a record crowd at Nkando in Mulanje, the home of Patricia Kaliati.
“President Peter Mutharika has always said that the Democratic Progressive Party doors are open so Honourable Kaliati is free to join our alliance,” said Atupele, who is on the campaign trail ahead of the July 2 election.
There was no immediate comment from Kaliati.
Speaking to thousands of people at Chitakale Trading Center in Mulanje, Muluzi asked the youth to vote for Mutharika saying the president thinks of the youth.
“You will appreciate that President Professor Arthur Peter Mutharika has made the development of the youths in the country as a priority, this is evident enough that our president has confidence in the youth,” said Atupele.
In his speech, the DPP vice president (South), Kondwani Nankhumwa told people of Mulanje South Constituency that come July 2, they should make vote Mutharika.
Nankhumwa said Mulanje has always rallied behind democracy, saying as such, the DPP-UDF alliance is set to continue with development projects in the country.
Mulanje sisunga kape…Mulanje doesn’t keep backward thinking people. I should urge all of you who are development conscious to vote for the DPP-UDF alliance,” he said.
He said Mutharika and Muluzi were right candidates for the job.
Mutharika, who is DPP torchbearer in the July 2 presidential election rerun, named Atupele as his running mate. The two parties are in an electoral alliance.

DPP has already started crying over the loss of Kaliati. This shows that now they realise that Kaliati was a very important asset in the Mutharika’ administration. But why now asking Kaliati to go back to DPP when they said that the UTM people losers. You refused Kaliati as MP in her constituency , so you miss her. If I was Kaliati I wouldn’t go back because they just want to use her for their interactions

Atupele has made an alliance with a wrong party. Peter is a vindictive person who never forgives. He can’t allow Kaliati and Co to come back to DPP. He does not believe in unity or inclusive politics. This is actually the main reason we have all these problems in Malawi now. Lack of unity and inclusive government. For Peter it is always them against us politics. Unfortunately this is the price Malawi has to pay; there will be leaders that will be inclusive and peace makers and there will Peters’, war seekers.

Unfortunately we want a government of unity and inclusion..malawians will not be part of this complaining to rally support to put peter mutharika in power so that he can continue to shield muluzi from his corruption and misuse of public funds charges. Atupele is doing all this to ensure mutharika wins to protect his fathers worth which he will inherit and in return peter has ditched and ignored the hard working guru in DPP and has now focused on his life after retirement by anointing atupele who will have a favour to return to him if atupele becomes president successor… Read more »
