JB, Chakwera hail Mia as statesman for paving way to MCP-UTM alliance

Former president Joyce Banda and Malawi Congress Party (MCP) leader Lazarus Chakwera on Thursday paid tribute to Sidik Mia, MCP’s deputy president for displaying statesmanship of such levels which this country has never witnessed for decades when  he sacrificed from being Chakwera’s runningmate  paving way for alliance as Malawi comes first.

Mia waves to the crowd gathered at Kamuzu Institute for Sports in Lilongwe

The remarks were made during the signing ceremony where Mia was attendance at Kamuzu Institute for Sports in the capital Lilongwe.

“Mia has shown that he loves this country and that he is concerned with the welfare of Malawians above everything,” said Banda who has a special team work skills of publicly recognizing those she closely work with—even if they are of the lowest rankinging.

Taking his turn, Chakwera, who is believed will be the candidate to lead the alliance in the forthcoming fresh election ,also paused to pay tribute to Mia.

“If there is one person I need to doff my hat for displaying high levels of patriotism, then it is the MCP deputy President Sidik Mia,” said Chakwera.

Mia, a wealthy businessman, whom it is believed pumped billions of money to resuscitate the cash-strapped MCP to make it forcefully compete during the botched 2019 elections, where he was running-mate himself, publicly endorsed the MCP-UTM alliance thereby putting on hold his ambition to be the country’s second in command.

Said Mia in a radio interview endorsing the alliance about two weeks ago:“I believe that there is strength in unity. I have given my full blessings to the ongoing alliance talks for a grand opposition alliance. This is time to save and serve Malawi.

“In the impending fresh election, I am ready to sacrifice my running-mate position if that is what it will take to save our country. Malawi, our dearest country, is bigger than the sum of our individual ambitions.”

The MCP-UTM alliance has  also been endorsed by Livingstonia Synod of the CCAP.

Ma cadet, stop hallucinating, its time to wake up from your slumber. Whether you like it or not, change has come, no matter how you orchestrate your propaganda here, you won’t derail the full momentum change is sweeping across the country. Resist it, it will change you. Kumeneko ndiye timati kudyela kulimba.

There is something evil with this MCP/UTM alliance. Chakwera anathawa mayitanidwe, Chilima ndi Abusalomu wowukila abambo ache, Joyce Banda ndimbava yothawa milandu ya cashgate, Enoch Chihana ndiwopepela, dzulo analowa utumiki wa Bushiri kusiya ndale, lelo wabwelelanso. All the key people in this alliance have a dark cloud hanging over them.

Malawi belong to the citizens

Kkkkkkkk MCP did not want democracy in this country so let UDF/DPP lead Malawi they are one since DPP is a breakaway hence their unity is welcome and all UDF supporters have now known the way. A good move indeed and not is za frustrated ppo wothamangira mipando nthawi isanakwane komanso kuli wothawa utumiki kumeneko, woukira bambo awo (che Abisalomu), aja womangokhalira ngati azungu akuti mmalo tidzilamula tokha iwo anasiya dziko mmanja a zungu thats they just came and devalued our kwacha from K140 to K750 shame! So no agenda in this rubbish alliance

Mia has been dumped just like the way Richard msowoya was dumped. Like khumbo kachali was dumped in favour of sosten gwengwe. stop sugar-coating the bitter pill. Dump people and praise them for their understanding is very shameful behaviour

People have realised that Chilima, Chakwera, HRDC and the courts are destroying our country. That’s why there were few people at the signing ceremony of MCP-UTM alliance.
