Starting his campaign from Zomba-Thondwe constituency a tour which takes him to MonkeyBay, the 41-year-old Atupele  said he wants to contribute  to build a government that is responsible to the people, particulary the young people and women.

Atupele said: “Achinyamata anzaga musafinyike, I am one of you and will ensure that we will develop the young people and be bolstered by robust national policies and innovative solutions to the challenges they faced.”

The  Minister of Energy, who is also UDF president, said the youth faced many challenges,  but will support President Mutharika to have “clear synergies” with sustainable development agenda.

“We will seek to harness the innovative spirit of young people in addressing our development challenges,” said Atupele to hundreds of esctaic crowds who thronge the roadside.

 

He said the DPP-UDF alliance is “a window of opportunity” to  make President Mutharika renew his mandate  to get over 80% of the total votes.

In his statement, DPP campaign director Ben Phiri,  who is also the Minister of Local Government described Malawi Congress Party as tarmec (poison) which kills people, urging people to only vote for Mutharika and Atupele.

Senior Chief Mlumbe hailed President Mutharika for choosing Atupele as his running mate, described the choice as the best of the best.

Among others officials who were present during the tour includes vice president for UDF Lilian Patel, Rosby Gadama the Member of Parliament for Zomba Thondwe constituency, DPP  Blue League chairperson Dumisani Lindani,  UDF MP for Zomba Ntonya constituency Ned Poya and DPP youth director for Eastern region Steven Bamusi.

On his choice of Atupele as his running mate, Mutharika said he settled for the UDF president because “he is a person I can work with to unite and develop this country. He understands that leadership comes with responsibility”.

Udf will work hard because they know that Pitala is a dead man walking. Awatu ngowawidwa mtima with what Bingu did. This is the same land rover that Muluzi and Bingu used. Chenjerani a dpp. Mwabetsa chipani. Pitala ndi chitsirudi ndithu.

Warning to MCP-UTM Alliance, do not be conceited about the wins you have gained through the Judiciary. This is exactly what I had said last time that MCP-UTM Alliance will be slow to start campaigns which is a crtical flaw in stragtegic political offensiveness. DPP-UDF Alliance is not taking the battle lying down. They are already awake, which is strategically important for the raod to winning the elctions. MCP-UTM get over your Supreme Court victorious outcome, swiftly move to an aggressive and offencive campaign in the areas which are strongholds of DPP and UDF. Failure to do this you can… Read more »

Very foolish idiot of a politician. He has no love for the youth he is claiming to be fighting for, and in fact, he is not patriotic or not a true comrade. Atupele was busy enjoying Beijing beef with fried rice in China when Chilima and Chakwera were battling MEC and DPP in court for a stolen election and he was mute without showing concern that the democratic process had been messed up with by the two partners in crime.
