Bakili pose behind DPP/UDF campaign poster causes stir

A picture of former president Bakili Muluzi standing smilingly behind a campaign poster for the DPP/UDF alliance has caused a stir and a storm in social media platforms.

Bakili Muluzi pose on DPP-UDF poster

The picture shows Muluzi leaning on the half-man size poster with symbols of the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) and the alliance partner, the United Democratic Front (UDF).

The poster has also words, “vote for DPP/UDF alliance.”

It seems the picture was taken from his office.

This comes barely weeks after his son, Atupele, who is also running mate to president Peter Mutharika in the court sanctioned June 23 presidential election, said the former president would come out to campaign for the alliance candidate.

In social media circles, some people said it was not good for a former Head of State to engage in active partisan politics.

Malawi has two living former presidents, Bakili Muluzi who governed from 1994 to 2004 and Joyce Banda who was in power from 2012  – when Bingu wa Mutharika died in office – and she lost elections to incumbent Peter Mutharika in 2014.

Banda is still in active politics and campaigns for opposition Malawi Congress Party (MCP) presidential hopeful Lazarus Chakwera under Tonse Alliance banner.

No stir at all, infact his shoes are intact to his affiliation and will be booted and washed together in face on this generation very shortly, he is an artist of this whole drama staged under it’s banner DPP/UDF Alliances

Mfiti iyi, pamodzi ndi mwana wake Atupele, osayiwalanso pulofesa wopenga uja, chaka chino udindo sawunyantha.

Bakili ngakhale unapha mwana wako wankazi ndi mphenzi a few years ago, kuti ukhwimile, komabe simuwinabe.
Munangomupha mtsikana wanu uja mahala, mankhwala ndi nyanga zanuzo zasuluka, siziphulapo kanthu kena kalikonse.

I see no problem for Bakili Muluzi to support any political grouping. I also fail to understand how Bakilizi’s inclination to any political grouping can change chances of that grouping to win an election. An alliance which had a better chances of winning will remain like that regardless of Bakili’s endorsement of either of the alliances. History has enough evidence for this fact. People should understand that guy grew past his political influence at national level. He will never again be the politician he was in 1990s.

Owen Khamula, your article its not newsworthy .
The poster it’s a product of photoshopping.
Social media is full of fake news these days.
Just go straight to the point that opposition are afraid of Bakili. You say nothing about Joice Banda campaigning for opposition. How does it become wrong when it comes to Bakili if he want to campaign for a party of his choice just like Joice Banda.????

Malawi constitution doesn’t bar any Malawian from participating in politics. It only bars somebody who has had two conservative terms as state president or vice president from seeking another term. Muluzi is free to campaign for any political party or individal. We have all seen in USA retired former presidents like Clinton, Bush Jnr and Obama campaigning for their respective parties’ presidential nominees.
Atcheya tiyeni nawo anawa give them a final killer blow pano ali wefuwefu kale.
