Atupele to decide candidacy in two weeks

A bomb is yet to land on the political scene which will send shivers to old politicians who have outlived their usefulness as the youthful Machinga North East Parliamentarian Atupele Muluzi is expected to announce his political move in the country.

Atupele, son to the former president, is already on a campaign advocating for change in the politics of the country which he describes as archaic and not wanted anymore.

He said after attending Eid-ul-Futri  Islamic festival  in Mangochi on Wednesday  that after two weeks  the will announce his next step in the political world.

“In any democracy, people decide who they want to lead them. Within two weeks I will be making a statement on my future in politics in the country,” said Atupele.

Atupele Muluzi: I will make my position known

Atupele’s name came into the political limelight last year when he was quizzed by the local media if he was intending to join the 2014 presidential race.

At that time he said he was yet to make a decision.

Atupele stands for the youth  and new thinking, saying it is time for the new generation to take over administration of governments in Africa.

On the current governance and economic problems facing the country, the deputy leader of UDF in parliament called for a united front of citizens to solve the problems.

Addressing crowds of Muslim faithful  that gathered at the old aerodrome in Mangochi district to celebrate Eid, Atupele ,who was guest of honour, said Malawians should ensure unity and progress of the country.

Eid al-Fitr celebrates the purification achieved during Ramadan, a month of sunrise-to-sunset fasting, one of the five pillars of Islam.

Atupele called on Muslims to be steadfast and prayerful so that Malawi shall enjoy relative peace and stability .

He stressed “the necessity of the Holy Month of Ramadan is to afford Muslims the unique opportunity to plead for the forgiveness of their sins and get closer to Almighty Allah.”

District Chairman of Muslim Association of Malawi in Mangochi Sheikh Adam Imran said that there is need for Muslims to work together in order to foster unity among Muslim brotherhood.
