Atupele’s runningmate Mwenifumbo tells Chihana: ‘I am not resigning from Aford’

Newly picked United Democrtaic Front (UDF) presidential running mate Frank Tumpale Mwenifumbo has said he would not resign from Alliance for Democracy (Aford), saying he was picked as running mate to Atupele Muluzi by virtue of his membership to Aford.

Mwenifumbo is Atupele’s running mate on UDF banner in presidential race

The maverick Karonga central legislator’s comment follow calls from Aford president Enoch Chihana to resign as Aford member to join the UDF, a party Chihana was belonged to.

“This is just an electoral alliance. This arrangement is for the elections only. I am still Aford and my president remains the Right Honourable Chihana,” said Mwenifumbo.

Muluzi made a surprise pick of Mwenifumbo as his running mate for the highly contentious May 21 elections.

Mwenifumbo went to Comesa hall in Blantyre for the presentation of nomination papers accompanied by Aford supporters.

“This is not nothing knew. At one point, Chakufwa Chihana was running mate to Gwanda Chakuamba and Brown Mpinganjira was running mate to John Tembo,” said Mwenifumbo.

But Chihana said the party constitution does not allow a member to hold membership of two parties.

“As Aford, we are not in alliance with the UDF,” he said.

Chihana said Mwenifumbo should choose whether to be running mate to Muluzi or continue to be member of Aford.

He said Aford is in official alliance with UTM party of Saulos Chilima.

Both atupele and frank are stupid and greedy politicians, with no morals. atupele can never be president of malawi because of his father and now his job is to be dividing malawi people in the opposition vote. my plea will go to northern dont support these fools if you want the northern region to be developed. put chihana and sck in govt them you will witness massive development, for once do not accept to be used like a condom. udf will never ever win elections at least with utm you have a chance.

CotizenX, I don’t agree with some parts of your comments: 1. I don’t agree that Atupele is dividing Aford. Aford are a divided party on their own and they have been divided for many years. Don’t blame others for the division in Aford, it’s an internal thing. What Atupele is doing, is to just capitalise on the already existing division with Aford. 2. I don’t agree that northerners should put Chihana in if they want the north to develop. As a matter of fact the truth is quite the opposite, voters MUST get rid of Chihana once and for all… Read more »

Aford never stops to surprise. These are signs of luck of clear leadership, luck of direction and luck of purpose. Zero mandate, zero vision, conclusively way past it’s sell by date. This party expired way back in 2003 immediately after the results of the first multiparty elections in Malawi. From then on all these people are doing is carrying a dog to the hunt. I have this thing with a friend of mine where we are betting on several predictions leading into the elections. My friend came up with what I thought is a money winner for me, in a… Read more »
