President Mutharika (DPP) and UDF leader Atupele Muluzi: One direction

The two parties formed a working committee to come with with a pact of the deal and resolved to proceed.

UDF  party president Atupele Muluzi received a backing from his party National Executive Committee (NEC) to enter into an alliance and gave guidance him guidance  on how to proceed with an electoral alliance that is in the best interest of Malawians.

“NEC agreed that the alliance should be designed in such a way that it brings about the much-needed stability and unity in the country which is in line with the Agenda for Change,” UDF said in a statement.

UDF secretary general Kandi Padambo claimed that his party had been approached by other political parties, including DPP, Malawi Congress Party (MCP) and UTM Party seeking possible alliances in form of a coalition.

DPP sources told Nyasa Times that all is set to announce the working relationship with UDF.

“The announcement is set to be made on Tuesday,” said the source.

NO MORE DYNASTIES in Malawi, we are sick and tired of Muluzi, Mutharika, Banda, Tembo, Kadzamira names

Malawi belong to the citizens

Corruption parties forming an alliance so that they can make Malawians more poorer.kuvotera awa ndi more poverty. Zipani zomwe zawononga dziko lathu,Pano akufuna adzasiye amalawi manja alikhosi.Amalawi samalani.

I like this alliance for one thing and ONLY one thing! Since 1994 two names have dominated the Presidency in Malawi: Mutharika and Muluzi.Its time to deal with themonce and for all by NOT voting for this alliance. And since 1994 the South and only the South has ruled Malawi! The votes from the Center and North added together can easily beat the South! My simple message to all Northerners and people from the Central is let’s vote the Mutharika and Muluzi poltical dynasty OUT! Let’s have a president from the Center and that’s when we will teach the Southerners… Read more »

Bvuto obusa o Lazalo ndale agwa nazo. People have been reminded of the 31 year attrocities by the crocodile party. The alliance is selling message of peace while obusa omayesa kuti getting on board the terrorists who were plundering Malawi indiscriminately was a good move. Ana amene timawauza za nkhanza za MCP azionera okha and it will take another 30 years for such bad image to keep on haunting this party of death and darkness

Is this new? Does it surprise you? I am not surprised. Atupele wants to take dpp back to UDF and that has been his long ambition and that of Bakili Muluzi. These UDF guys have been bitter with what Bingu did and the only way to get power back is through this alliance simply because APM watha kale. There is very little fuel in his non-rechargeable tank. At 80 years or more does one expect to live longer by another 10 years? Anything can happen to APM and Atupele plays hard that APM picks him and that APM dies. Surely… Read more »

Mmmmh. I believe it’s the Dausi/Ntaba era you are talking about. I haven’t heard of any murder cases linked to the Rebranded Chakwera led MCP. I think majority of young men and women can attest to this. However, they are aware of the murders of Chasowa, Njauju, Lule, under DPP watch are common knowledge.
Believe you me stories of plunder, nepotism, corruption, thieving etc etc, under DPP led government, are being shared everywhere, including at funerals.
The choice is yours mate. As for me, I will support Chakwera/Chilima alliance head and toe.

@Razor
It’s like a couple that has been cohabiting for 15 years (kukwatana daily koma opanda ma contraceptives koma osabeleka) then they choose to go on the puppet to formalise their union. They have been cheating on each other, kumenyana. Will the marriage of convenience work this time?
A marriage with no blessings from the Almighty.
