Atupele says Mutharika poised for victory in Malawi presidential rerun

Atupele Muluzi, the running mate to President Peter Mutharika,  has said the  Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) and  United Democratic Front (UDF) torchbearer  is set to win the fresh presidential election tentatively scheduled for June 23 this year.

Atupele said this  on Sunday when he  concluded his ” tour of the north” ending with whistlestops in Nkhatabay district.

Speaking in an interview after addressing thousands of people who converged at Nkhata-Bay trading center where the mega rally was held, Atupele said DPP-UDF Alliance will definitely win the fresh Presidential rerun following an incredible turn out of their supporters as he dated the North for both ministerial and political duties.

“The tour has been absolutely incredible, I came here for two reasons, to do some government work and to meet the stakeholders here in the northern region to address a number of issues and am amazed by the support which is an indicator that we are going to win the forth coming election,” said Mutharika’s running mate.

Going further in persuading people to rally behind President Mutharika and also to vote for DPP-UDF Alliance candidate, he said if people from the north can compare the development initiatives that have been done in the region, it is the DPP and UDF regimes that have done a lot as compared to MCP despite ruling the country for 30 years which gives them great advantage.

“MCP ruled this country for 30 years and if you compare the developments that have been done between the leadership of UDF and DPP, quite a number of things have been done within a period of 20 years, talk of the Nkhata-bay Hospital, Mzuzu Central hospital and the High Court, the Reserve bank, Mzuzu Nkhata-bay road and many others,” he said.

Atupele  took time at all the venues reminding the people how Malawians from the northern part of Malawi suffered at the hands of the MCP)regime saying the people of Nkhatabay suffered the most.

He cited the likes of the Orton Chirwa who founded the MCP but was instead arrested and died in jail.

Atupele also mentioned  Aleke Banda , one time Secretary General of MCP but was also arrested and had lots of his property confisticated under the draconian “forfeiture Act.”

He said that there is ample evidence to prove that MCP is in it’s old self and has not reformed in conformity with the democratic norms.

The whistlestops took Atupele and his entourage of both UDF and DPP officials to Mpamba,. Nkhatabay boma, and Tukombo where he acknowledged the role the late Aleke Banda played in the democratisation of the country.

Making his speech whilst addressing the people that converged at the mega rally, the minister of Health honorable Jappie Mhango confidently said that DPP-UDF Alliance will win the election as people from the Northern region are ready to vote for Mutharika and Muluzi respectively.

He said “I can assure you that we are going to win the presidential rerun, these people are going to vote for professor Arthur Peter Mutharika and honorable Atupele Muluzi as the state president and vice president respectively.”

DPP-UDF Alliance also conducted a whistle stop tour at Mpamba and Chintheche in Nkhata-bay district to conclude their journey in the north in a bid to sell their manifesto in preparedness for the forth coming Fresh Presidential Poll.

In an interview with Nyasa Times at the end of the tour , UDF publicist who was part of the entourage , Ken Ndanga was all smiles and  described the tour as a huge success.

Ndanga, who has recently made a name for his fiery speeches,  said that now the people of the north have a “complete story” about politics in the country.

“They were fed with propaganda and one sided story”.

He said the Atupele tour has turned the tables and it is clear that the DPP/ UDF will win the fresh presidential elections hands down.

Thank you for whatever development in the north by whichever party; MCP, UDF, DPP or PP. This doesn’t mean we shouldn’t try political parties of our choice. Development money comes not from a party. These are government projects. What we are saying is you should have done better than this. How many development projects are there in the LOMWE belt? See? Now don’t come running and lying to us to vote for you. We need change. Mwabapo basi. Bola azabepo ena. But am sure they will do much better than chipani cha ma mbava.

You would rather have Khumbo kachali (beds gate) Roy kachale ( Sold and spent money of presidential jet), (abiti cashgate )Joyce Banda, Callista chimombo (gave herself a salary as First Lady) kaliati ( got mad after her daughter was removed from embassy in America, tourism gate), Chilima (stole reforms money to start UTM), Ndikhetsa Mwazi bloody Chakwera, Mia stole Chakuambas cows, Mkaka ( good for nothing loud mouth who incited the Nsundwe thugs an facilitated violence) I could go on and on. Onse in Malawi politics have no clean hands. This is a vote for democracy versus one party system.… Read more »

There is a huge difference between DPP & UDF in this coming elections. DPP is running scared cos it has all to lose yet UDF is excited cos it has all to gain. Mutharika doesn’t need the elections yet Atupele desperately needs the elections it’s where the difference is.

What an opportunist this Atupele guy is, iwe…..u had run off to China after u miserably lost, the real fighters put up a fight against the fraudsters DPP, u came back after the court ruling ndikunamizana ndi anzako akuba a dpp and now u r busy ati vote for APM, MCP has nvr done anything in the North…….wagwa nayo Malawians are no longer blind, u will fail again miserably and I hope this time around you will put an indefinite citizen application in China.

People are saying the DPP UDF has not developed the northern region and therefore does not deserve the votes. Now tell me who constructed the Mzuzu-Nkhatabay highway which people from the north are using everyday, do you need a reminder that is is the same DPP-UDF, who constructed Karonga-Chitipa road, Mzuzu University was established under the MCP? New Reserve Bank in Mzuzu under the MCP? Livingstonia Njakhwa road under the MCP? Mombera University being constructed under the MCP? Let us have patience the people of the North. Do not be fooled to start chewing off the finger that feeds you,… Read more »

Kikikikiiiiiiii, Mzuzu TTC? Livingstonia Njakwa road???? Mombela Uni???? Ooh! you mean the stones? Mzuzu Nkhatabay road (mwati highway kodi? Malawi standards). Listern, tarmarc road was already there only that it did deteriorate hence the replacement. Udf/dpp/udf have been in government almost the same time as Kamuzu and compare the developments. Mind you, Kamuzu started with nothing while Muluzi inherited an already functioning economy and had billions coming in as a result of becoming a multi party state. Nde kunali KUBA KUBA KUBA and KUBA.

Atupele Muluzi you have to know that Bakili Muluzi your father is part of the history of Malawi. He was in MCP and made decisions as well. If you talk about development who first brought the road to Nkhata Bay all the way from Salima Turn Off at or near Chingeni? Do you think it was easy to contruct a road that is more than 500 km from Balaka? Who constructed the road to Mwanza? Who constructed the road from Lilongwe to Karonga via Chikangawa? Who constructed the road from Lilongwe to Salima? Who constructed the road from Lilongwe to… Read more »
