Newly registered UTM party suspected the road accident near Mvera road bock on the Dowa-Salima Road which left the party interim secretary general Patricia Kaliati on Friday unscathed was not a genuine accident was a botched assassination attempt.

Kaliati survived a car crash

The accident, which happened at around 4 pm, left Kaliati’s vehicle a Toyota Fortuner registration BS 6562 damaged beyond repair.

She was in company of UTM official Callisto Khama  Matumbi and four others

UTM supporters spread rumours on social media that ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) , which has a history of political killings, was behind it.

“People don’t want to believe it was an ordinary accident. They wanted to kill Kaliati,” said one UTM member.

Kaliati, Mulanje West parliamentarian, was taken to a clinic in the capital, Lilongwe.

Dowa Police Station spokesperson Richard Kaponda confirmed the accident but said he was yet to get details on the accident from Mvera Police Post.

According to Kaliati’s personal assistant James Manuel, said the UTM Secretary General  and five others who were in the vehicle escaped unhurt.

He said the accident happened when a three tonner lorry which was going in the opposite direction unexpectedly diverted to the right-hand lane of the road and in the process colliding with Kaliati’s vehicle head on.

Malawi’s roads are notoriously dangerous, having deteriorated in recent years through poor maintenance.

To be quite honest our roads are death traps. I would like to know who heads the Department of Roads and transport and why he / she is there. Our roads do not have directional signs and not many visible commanding signs. Most of our roads are not kerbed on the edges which makes them delapidate quickly. Traffic police are there to make money for themselves not enforce law. We living in 21st century but our country existence is on the dark edges. Some of these things can be fixed quickly with the right deployees at the helm. Many departments… Read more »

This is total madness on the part of UTM. Misala yeniyeni. How can u associate the accident with assassination? Ngozi zonse zikuchitikazi anthu nkumafa ambirimbirizi ndi DPP yomweyonso? Basi chilichonse kumangolowesapo ndale, kufuna pa sympathy kwa mtundu wanji kumeneko??? Anthu azakuvotelani mukawauza nfundo zogwila mtima , osati kukunvelani Chisoni . stop being crying babys if u want pples votes.

Sometimes you should learn to read what newspaper /online news write with a pinch of salt. I don’t know which official in UTM has said this. The Nyasatimes reporter has not quoted anyone and because he is just presenting to you second hand information he/she can not even put his name in the byline.

I agree with you Agenda, most of nyasatimes stories don’t make sense and the reality of their stories are opposite. This is a trash news provider. But on this story of wamisala kaliati, nyasatimes has quoted the exact words of kaliati. She even said it pamsonkhano wa UTM ku Dedza.

I can see the words ANA A DAD DPP 2019 BOMA! written all over that 3-ton truck in invisible paint. This is Mchacha’s first assignment as Deputy Minister of Homeland Security. APM you should know that “Dzenje lomukumbira mzako umagweramo wekha”. Do you remember that your brother Bingu also tried to cause an accident on Joyce Banda? Pitirizani kufinya korona Akweni.
