UTM is a mawolera party. Look, despite having Akweni in that party, UTM still has 4MPs only in parliament. Why is this so? it’s because UTM is good at chewing garbage. UTM is full of rejects such as shanil, carista, lucious, manganya, kabwira and is good at glorifying crooks such as masangwi and newton kambala, etc etc. Nobody can be attracted by these spent forces who are good for nothing. Even their so called president chilima is a disgruntled rebel full of mwano hence less attractive to well meaning malawians . A paipi yendani bwino. Mukathera ku UTM komweko!!!!

If Julius Pipe is the one who helped DPP to scoop more parliamentary seats in Eastern Region, we will see if UTM can depend on him. It has however been proven that sometimes hoping from one party to another damages one’s political career or the career of the party one has jumped to. Uladi Mussa, Wakuda Kamanga,Brown Mpinganjira, Salim Bagus and et.al are just few examples.

Are party positions a reservation of the few? You jump from one party to the other and still retain the same position no wonder our politics remain the same. How do one expect mindset change from the Julius’s of yeaterday
