During the meetings, Chilima gave an opportunity to the people to ask different questions

The energetic Chilima, 45  started his four-day tour of the two districts on Saturday with Imbizos which are a two way interactions with the people.

In the Imbizos, people are free to ask Chilima any questions and even offer suggestions before the Vice President delivers his messages.

On Saturday, Chilima held Imbizos in Lilongwe South West starting at Chigwirizano, TA Malili Headquarters, Kanyerere before visiting Lilongwe Kumachenga at Ngongonda and wrapped up at TA Chitukula and TA Mbang’ombe.

On Sunday, Chilima stormed Dedza at Katewe, Thete, Malirana, Lobi and Chitowo.

He also visited Dedza on Monday and will wind up his tour on Tuesday.

In his speeches, Chilima focused on agriculture, economic development and education while reminding the people about the power of the ballot paper.

Chilima assured the people that UTM government will ensure that students have access to good education through construction of good and standard school blocks, provision of all required learning materials and ensure that teachers are getting salaries in time.

“No student will fail to finish school because of school fees in my government, ” said Chilima.

At Chinkhu village in TA Kachere in Dedza, there was another unexpected Imbizo where the people in the village asked the Chilima to address them.

He assured the people of Introducing pension scheme for elderly people and construction of good roads .

Chilima said he would do away with the Farm Input Subsidy Program (Fisp) as he promised to revive the agriculture sector and make fertiliser  affordable instead of promoting subsidies which he said do not benefit all Malawians.

He also said his government would promote mechanized farming where cooperatives would access farm machinery such as tractors to be used at cooperative level.

The UTM torchbearer also urged the people to demand accountability on how their taxes are spent by the government.

“You own the development agenda, you pay taxes. You pay taxes, through soap that you buy or airtime you use in those phones. Nobody should tell you ‘without us you would be nothing’,” he said to the wild ululation of the crowd gathered.

Chilima has been forced to finish his Imbizos late in the evenings as some people queue in areas to listen to his messages.

He told the gathering not to vote out of mercy or habit.

I have never fasted for a politician to be successful but this time Chilima deserves to be fasted for. I will pray on his behalf and i ask all prayerful Malawians to do the same for him. He needs divine intervention and power!!! God please bless our man DR CHILIMA!!!

I went there soon after his meetings. People just laughed and said Chilima wa DPP was here. I reminded them he is UTM. They sternly argued he is DPP. I lost the argument saying I was misinformed and they were right. There ended the story… that’s Dedza and Lilongwe my brother….

Mercy for the Old Man APM and habit for the MCP, kkkkk.

Time to try the only change on the political scene, UTM. Voting for MCP is basically a vote for the cashgaters of PP whom Chakwera has promised to protect if he gets into power.

Mfanayu akutipura… He is not to be underrated. He will still more votes from the MCP, DPP, UDF, AFORD (if they still exist), NDA, Chipani cha Pfuko, MAFUNDE (chinatha paja).

Which message of hope? A msg of hope when he gets into govenment? Is he not in it already?Dpp and Mr chilima have one thing in common, thy keep on making empty promises.

I kno some UTM diehards wil pull out their usual stanza ” wapakaliyala saimba bell”This reasoning is illogical.A govenment is not like bicycle. If it is then where do we put cabinet ministers in this bicycle? Evry good and bad idea, policy, management principle d govenment is using is a product of cabinet meetings which chilima is part of.
Izi zomamupatula chilimazi zimandidabwitsa.
