Chilima pocks fun at MCP-PP alliance as ‘combination of losers’

Vice-President Saulos Chilima, who is also presidential candidate for UTM party, has pocked fun at the Malawi Congress Party (MCP) and People Party (PP) alliance, saying two parties-one which lost in 1994 elections and the other one which lost in 2014 have joined forces to lose again on May 21.

Chilima outlining a number of promises as his last push in the race to State House.
Chilima: MCP-PP are birds of the same losing feathers flocking together

Chilima said this on Saturday morning in Kasungu as he was travelling from the Northern Region to Lilongwe during the last day of electioneering before campaign freezes at 6am Sunday ahead of the watershed polls.

The UTM presidential candidate will wrap up his campaign Saturday afternoon at Likuni in Lilongwe which has registered 1 013 000 voters.

“Don’t be misled that ruling parties cannot lose elections. They do. Actually it has happened in Malawi. In 1994 MCP was ousted in power in a general elections, in 2014 PP also lost in the first Tripartite Elections and on May 21 2019 the DPP will be on its out ,” said Chilima.

“Ironically the losers in 1994 (MCP) and 2014 (PP) are in electoral alliance to help guide each other on new losing formula,” said Chilima.

Among others, Chilima promised that the UTM government will provide safe and potable water, improve transport systems but also introduce farming fields and factories as a way of promoting exports, thereby boosting the country’s economy.

Said Chilima: “All problems we have will end on 21 May, and that same day, UTM will bring happiness to Malawians. We want to deal with joblessness, lack of better housing, capital for businesses, lack of medical drugs and supplies in hospitals, nepotism, corruption and quota system.”

He then hit at his critics, saying those that dispute promise of one million jobs, and duty-free week among others have no clue on how to run the country, and must let the UTM implement such after the polls.

Chilima, whose main campaign message was poverty reduction through job creation and fighting corruption, will face Peter Mutharika of DPP, Lazarus Chakwera of Malawi Congress Party (MCP), Atupele Muluzi of United Democratic Front (UDF), Peter Kuwani of Mbakuwaku Movement for Democracy (MMD), John Chisi of Umodzi Party and Independent Candidate Reverend Kaliya.

I just have chosen to end my regurgitation here, I think the reason is obvious to many; the fertilizer price! I really have liked Team Chibagera for the ability to inspire and motivate people. Seen arrows thrown into all the depths of the darkness. Majority of the team though conveyed no integrity and honesty, but, here I wanted to discuss one thing, did I get the price of fertilizer right, a few coins below K5,000.00 right? Well, I think this is great for campaign. Am so sure this has brought butterflies in stomachs in the other camps. But one thing,… Read more »

a young man full of jealous, bitterness, hatred all in one. Just lose honorably and go back to Airtel. We want real change not DPP again. Chilima you have not demonstrated any change from DPP. What people see is UTM and DPP are the same. Only Chakwera is the real change we Malawians want.

Just shut up Saulos Chilima. You are a fool not stand as an MP. How do give your team of failures morale? You can’t win any seat in the southern region. You can’t win any seat in the central region. Without you no one can hold a rally. You are a one man band like late Madolo. This is also how foolish you are. You were the first to go into alliance with PP and because of your inborn selfishness PP abandoned you. Now you are threatened by the MCP -PP-FP alliance. Atupele Muluzi rebuffed you. Another political miscalculation was… Read more »
