Kaliati says its MCP-UTM alliance symbols on ballot with Chakwera face: Chilima holds 10 Imbizos
UTM Party secretary general (SG) Patricia Kaliati has said the presidential ticket of the opposition alliance in the fresh presidential election will have symbols of Malawi Congress Party (MCP) and UTM with the face of MCP leader Lazarus Chakwera and name of his running mate UTM Party leader Saulos Chilima.
Kaliati said this during the whistle stop tours Chilima held from Ntcheu in the central region on Friday.
“We are going to have MCP-UTM alliance on the ballot paper. There will be a face of our torchbearer Chakwera and the symbols of MCP and UTM,” said Kaliati.
During the meetings, Kaliati stressed it is MCP-UTM alliance ticket.
There was also combination of the parties’ slogans of both parties: Kwacha!! The crowd responding, Tsogolo Lathu Labwino, Lowala, Lafika!
From morning to dusk, Chilima had all his energy on display holding 10 Imbizos [whistle-stops] attracting mammoth crowds.
Of all the places, Dedza and Ntcheu were beyond Imbizos but rallies because the attendance was massive.
Hundreds of ecstatic people attended the meetings, with Chilima urging the people to own this country by making sure that they vote for Chakwera as the next president.
“In Malawi this is the first time that elections have been nullified. God is talking to us. Let us vote for what we have been missing. Let us vote for progressive development,” said Chilima.
In all the places he maintained that the alliance government will usher in development, create jobs and end food insecurity by slashing fertiliser prices from the current K25, 000 to K4, 485.
“We must make our citizens happy. Happiness entails that people afford basic comedies and one of which is food. Making fertiliser affordable is one effective step,” he said.
Chilima also cautioned people against the ‘it’s impossible’ attitude, saying Malawians must believe and always claim what is rightly theirs.
“People were telling us that the court case cannot work because once a President is sworn in then that’s it. We fought our way. Here we are on the road to fresh elections and a better Malawi. Do not give up easily. Fight for yourself. Believe in people power,” Chilima said.
The UTM leader and alliance running mate also warned people to avoid voting for families that want to make Malawi their farm.
“This country belongs to all if us. We cannot allow two families to be shielding each other from corruption
Polling is due on July 2, but could be brought forward to June 23, according to Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC).Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
Kaliati and UTM agwa nayo. UTM party colours NOT on ballot
You can call UTM a party all you want, but the fact that you only have 4 Mps in a 193 member parliament speaks volumes about the disaster looming on UTMs head. MCP will wipeout this experiment. What say will UTM have in governance???
Komatu fertilizer akazatsika mtengo, a DPP azagula nawo chonsecho pano akuwombera nyekhwe mmanja. zoti pano ena mwa akuluakulu a DPP ayamba kukonzeka zothawa mu chipani ma cadet sakudziwa.
Saadzatsika my friend. This is politics. All politicians are crooks. You just work hard and God will bless your sweat.
No more turning back to the party of darkness and death MCP. We don’t want to return to Babylon to spill more blood and live in a state of uncertainty under tambala wakuda. The philosophy of MCP has not changed at all, kwawo ndi kupha, kuba ndikuwononga. We have seen this suppression over the past 10 months, courtesy of Msundwe barracks. Nkhanza and mkwiyo too much in MCP. Pepani palibe chanu.
Do you mean the party belonging to two families of muluzi and Mutharika UDF and DPP yes they are liars thieves bakili muluzi is still answering the case of billions he stole from poor Malawi, he introduced to their boys and cadets taking off our private parts for rituals it started with muluzi and Mutharika now continuing with the dirty acts of killings of innocent people albinos eish njaunju the ACB was set Up fire to death by the DPP , chasowa matafale and so many others including the resent seen in UTM office in Lilongwe where lives of innocent… Read more »
Which darkness My friend how many people have dead of your tribalist parties UDF and DPP the family you have just torched in Lilongwe for your information it’s Days doing the same as when he was with MCP.This time it’s better for MCP than DPP and mcp
Kamuzu is dead so it’s stupid to associate MCP of the old days with the current one. You must be a beneficiary of DPP corrupt thieves. DPP is far worst than the old MCP. Lack of medicine in hospitals especially in non Lomwe districts leads to thousands of deaths. The education quota system has killed human capital development with mass exodus of you people to South Africa where they face unbearable hardships. These things didn’t happen during Kamuzu. All sane people will vote for MCP-UTM Alliance
It was because of Dausi who was in Malawi Young pioneer and Bakili was a Minister
Did Chilima not just shot himself in the foot.
He left DPP to try become President leaving Vice Presidency behind.
Court has temporarily put him in that position.
So if something happens to the president (just thinking out aloud) & the Candidacy has been submitted will he go from presidency back to Vice President?
It’s confusing please someone explain what happens in that scenario in terms of candidacy submitted if the sitting president is incapacitated what happens to the candidacies submitted.
Kuganiza mopusa uku
KALIATI uku ndiye timati anamslira kuzipeoesa okha. People were expecting Cilima to be on the ballot box.Tgat was there choice.zkulj ngati kuika nkhumba (which is against moslems) pallot mmalo mwa mbuzi. You know it. Moslems will lot be happy to be led by one who was a Reverend
Yo wina wina
Imbizo nde kuti cha osangoti misonkhano bwanji waukulu waungono ndi msoknkhano basi
The symbol would be very nice if it was saying Kwacha kuwala kwafika, any good job guys.
Mcp should be disbanded. Malawians should be seeking ways of achieving this…they can’t be seeking to vote for mcp noooooo ok. This party tortured their citizens and the country was full of unexplained deaths. The national compensation tribunal registered more than 20,000 victims of mcp rule. Death and darkness should not be embraced
