Governing Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) vice-president (South) Kondwani Nankhumwa  has said thousands upon thousands of people who turned up during his two-day whistle-stop tour in Blantyre City is testimony enough that President Peter Mutharika and DPP continue to enjoy massive support not only in Blantyre but across the country.

Nankhumwa was accompanied by senior DPP and UDF officials including regional governors, Charles Mchacha and Dorothy Masinga, respectively, UDF VP for South Lance Mbewe, Minister of Women, Mary Navicha, UDF Secretary General, Kandi Padambo and some MPs

Record crowds graced all the meetings, with the final stop at Ndirande Hall being the climax where people gathered in record numbers even when darkness had fallen.

“I went to Manje, Limbe Market, Zingwangwa, Nthukwa (Chilomoni), Chirimba and Lwanda in Machinjiri on Saturday. Today, my team and I visited our supporters at Mvula in Bangwe, Kachere, Khama in Machinjiri and Ndirande Market. I must say that I was immensely impressed by the level of reception accorded to us wherever went.

“We witnessed shinning and smiling faces; faces on which APM and DPP are clearly written. We witnessed how much people in Blantyre are ready to vote for APM again in large numbers and retain him as President of the Republic of Malawi,” Nankhumwa told reporters as he wound up his tour, adding that on behalf of President Professor Mutharika and on behalf of the party, he thanked the people of Blantyre for their “overwhelming support”.

He said during “the highly successful whistle-stop tour” his team witnessed “yet another high level of support for Mutharika and DPP” and that he is optimistic that come the fresh presidential election, President Mutharika will clinch a sweeping victory with his running mate Atupele Muluzi, president of United Democratic Front (UDF).

“I informed the people that as DPP, we maintain that His Excellency President Professor Arthur Peter Mutharika won the presidential election held in May last year. But since the President and the DPP respect the rule of law, we have accepted to contest again, as ordered by the courts.

“I believe that politics must always be a marketplace of ideas and policies. I took the opportunity to inform the people about the various social and economic plans that the DPP has in store for Malawi under the able stewardship of President Mutharika. That is our mark for APM’s victory on June 23 or whatever date will be decided upon,” said Nankhumwa, who also serves as Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation and Leader of Government Business in Malawi Parliament.

President Mutharika recently unveiled Atupele Muluzi, President of UDF, as his running mate in the forthcoming presidential polls. His main challenger is Lazarus Chakwera of MCP who has partnered Saulos Chilima of UTM as running mate.

During the tour, Nankhumwa thanked President Mutharika for choosing Atupele Muluzi as his running mate, reiterating that there could not have been any better candidate to partner President Mutharika as running-mate in this election than the young Muluzi.

“I wish to encourage all UDF and DPP supporters to remain united as members of one family and vote for the APM-Atupele pair,” said the youthful politician.

During the tour, Nankhumwa was accompanied by senior DPP and UDF officials including regional governors, Charles Mchacha and Dorothy Masinga, respectively, UDF VP for South Lance Mbewe, Minister of Women, Mary Navicha, UDF Secretary General, Kandi Padambo and some MPs from Phalombe, Blantyre City and Chikwawa.

Whatever the case DPP is going to get screwed! If they win and Atupele becomes VP ….zany izo! Atcheya akudikila kuphwetsa chubu!
If the Muluzi/Mutharika alliance loses then you know you know! Kudzakhala kubwezeletsa Malawi back to Malawians from two families and tribes that believe that Malawi belongs to them!

Going back to udf is the most worrisome thing. Nothing else. I feel sorry for those that loved dpp. They are being taken back to the party that unleashed terror to Malawians under a ruthless killer Bakili Muluzi. Bingu reversed the situation but his idiotic brother eish. Chinyama chenicheni. DPP was once popular in all regions of the country. There was even a placard at Jenda put by Harry Mkandawire “Welcome to the North Home of DPP”. It’s gone. It was uprooted. Shame shame shame shame shame.

Nankhumwa is a stooge and puppet.After all he is not even educated so by all means he will try to please his master to safeguard his position in the Government.

Has turned out to be some sort of entertainment. Today they throng to DPP-UDF Alliance in their blue attire provided the gang leaders get their K50. Tomorrow they change their uniforms and rush to Tonse Alliance.
Who cares?
Come the voting day! It’s a different picture altogether. Let’s just pray there is no rigging because it’s only then that we will know who’s right.

Attending rally does not necessarily mean voting for them. Do not be deceived by the cloud. Malawians are now aware how they have been cheated in the past and how poorly this country is governed. They will vote for the right leaders this time round. Change of regime is very necessary

Can you change we’re the hand of God is anointing. God knows best than you Banda. God is not interested in people who seeks revenge or scorn other people. He created man in his own image and likeness. So don’t tell God that the people don’t know. Read the story of Jona and you will understand this.

This stupidity of carelessly challenging the Malawi Supreme Court of Appeal must STOP. But no wonder these DPP morons cheat in exams and buy academic certificates. What a pitiful lot!

Do you people think that Mutjharika who is campaigning in absentia will win in absentia? I am yet to be schooled.
