Chilima ‘confident’ of Malawi political change: Campaigns for UTM in Mulanje

UTM president Dr Saulos Chilima has bashed orthodox politicians who are always questioning his transformative agenda,  saying they do not wish Malawi and its people well.

Speaking during a whistle-stop tour of Mulanje on Saturday. Chilima said the UTM has shifted away from routine politics for the love of the country and respect to the dignity of every individual Malawian.

“Those people discredit the UTM agenda because they want to take advantage of your situation. They want you to continue begging and depending on them even for the most basic of needs. Then they turn around and insult you as nobodies whose existence cannot be assured without them,” Chilima told the mammoth crowds that thronged his rallies.

The UTM torch-bearer in the May 21 elections said Malawi’s development and transformation is not a one-man job as some politicians would want the people to believe.

“We all have to take an initiative to make Malawi a happy nation. This is why I urge you all, especially the youth, to massively vote for the UTM so that the nation’s fortunes take a positive turn,” he said.

According to Chilima, the UTM plans to transform the country’s agro-industry which he described as the bedrock of Malawi’s socio-economic structure.

He said apart from making his three-meals-a-day promise to Malawians a reality, a vibrant agro-industry will promote various other sectors like the manufacturing industry.

“Unlike the outmoded politicians who consider farming as a useless enterprise, we in the UTM recognise its worth to the nation. Think about a plate or pot maker, a stove maker, a charcoal seller, the confectionary producer – they all rely on agriculture to strive.

“This is why we pledge to increase crop yield by making fertilisers accessible and affordable to all farmers. This we will definitely do…just wait for our announcement of the prices by the end of this month,” a confident Chilima said to loud cheers from the crowds.

He said it is the UTM’s wish to have the country’s cotton processed locally, and to see clothes being manufactured here to benefit Malawians.

Chilima also reiterated his promise to not only make produce markets accessible to farmers, but also guaranteed meaningful prices that would transform their whole livelihood.

On other social amenities, the UTM president said his administration will among others improve portable water facilities, the healthcare system; and the status of teachers and all civil servants through decent and timely pay as well as proper housing.

“Being a happy person is not only about food, but also having all necessary amenities within reach and in first-class state not as is the case at the moment,” Chilima said.

On next month’s elections,  Chilima expressed confidence that the UTM will emerge victorious saying Malawians are ready to convey the message that their country does not belong to a few individuals or families but to everyone else.

Your own Cousin In Ntcheu is accusing you of arrogance and disrespectful to your own mother and relatives let alone the one who picked you from being a sales agent to hon vice of a state. How would you expect people to believe you Saulosi. Let’s wait for May and you will rush to court for help but things will not work. You are promising too many things Bambo. A big casualty will be Manganyayo because he will not win in his constituency. Mark my words

To be honest, among the three top presidential candidates, namely Chilima, Chakwera and Muntharika, SKC is the real transformative person, the guy is charismatic in the way he relays his message and when he is speaking you have feeling that he is speaking with self-belief and knows what he is talking about. Honestly, am not impressed with Chakwera when he is speaking, it is as if he only uñderstands that he needs to be a president that’s all. This might be painful to die hard MCP supporters but it is true, the only reason Chakwera and Mia have more support… Read more »

Don’t forget SKC is a marketer by qualification. These are the same lies he was saying in 2014. Unless your memory is very shallow, you can trust him. Go for a person you can trust

SFC is not a matured politician, he can not stand under difficulty situations.S F C wishes to be voted into power in order to please His wife who wants to be called First lady . Atupele was right during the debate that people should not vote for Saulosi Chilima as he failed Malawians who voted Him together with APM.As vice president Saulosi Chilima did not do anything worthy to be voted into power.All what he says is a white lie. Remember a bird in a hand is worthy two in the bush. APM has at least developed this country if… Read more »
