Atupele to set the ‘new beginning’  tone for  Malawi 2019 elections: Rallies in Balaka North, Machinga South East

President of United Democratic Front (UDF), Atupele Muluzi, is kicking off his political meetings with the  electorate ahead of May 21 2019 Tripartite Elections starting with the Yao Land this weekend, with emphasis  on a “new beginning” for the party and bring in new ideas.

Atupele Muluzi: I have the experience and the knowledge 

According to a programme released by UDF secretary general Kandi Padambo,  the young Muluzi will be in Balaka North constituency on Saturday at Mbera Primary School Ground.

UDF won Balaka North constituency in the 2014 elections but its Member of Parlaiment  (MP) Lucius Banda  ditched the party and joined newly registered UTM party of Vice President Saulos Chilima.

On Sunday, Muluzi will be  in Machinga South East  constituency at Makweraa Primary School Ground.

The constituency is held by MP Reverend Wilson Ndomondo (People’s Party-PP).

Atupele, who is Minister of Health in President Peter Mutharika’s Cabinet,   said he is now gained political experience and understanding of government  “not of populist chants.”

He hopes to ride a wave of youthful optimism to victory, emulating Barack Obama, Emmanuel Macron and Justin Trudeau.

The young Muluzi, who is 40 years old, stressed that UDF seeks a new beginning and will launch a vigorous campaign better than 2014 when he drew mammoth crowds with the ‘Agenda for change’ crusade that is now reset with ‘new beginning’.

UDF came to power in 1994 after defeating Malawi Congress Party (MCP) in 1994. It swept seats in the Southern Region and most seats in the Central Region.

During the 1999 elections, UDF won 91 seats, but the figures continued to drop in the subsequent elections when it won 49 seats in 2004 and 16 in 2009.

Going by the comments, I think this man has lost it all. Someone who would want to be elected president of a country in 5 months time and he is still peddling policies of another party, can he really be taken seriously. Also with reference from the results of the last election Atupele should not have even joined DPP. Tulo achawa. Ndiamene akutiwonongera dzikoli. A DPP akunenetsa modzikonda kuti tagwetsa UDP ku Eastern Region iyecAtupele alipompo duu, ndiye kuti mutu umagwira?

Atupele is fake. He is always under the armpit of DPP. We can’t trust him. Ukhuluku basi.
