Kaliati takes UTM to Thyolo, Usi storms Balaka: ‘Chilima did not hold talks with MCP on alliance’

UTM party interim secretary general  Patricia Kaliati on Sunday addressed a political meeting in Thyolo Central Constituency – a bedrock of  the  ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) which she served as director of women before ditching it for UTM.

Kaliati, who is also Mulanje West legislator, said UTM which is led by Vice-President Saulos Chilima is reaching out to the rural masses and the hinterland throughout the country.

“There is no go zone area for UTM, we will reach out to the electorate everywhere including the so called strongholds of other parties,” she said.

She said UTM has now set up area committees, constituency committees and political district administrations in all corners of the country.

Kaliati also clarified that there have never been talks with the main opposition, the Malawi Congress Party (MCP) on an electoral alliance.

“Our leader Chilima or any other UTM official has never met the president of the MCP to talk about the alliance issue. It’s being fabricated,” she said.

The issues of the alliance resurfaced after one of the results of the recent survey into voter preferences ahead of the 2019 elections by the Institute for Public Opinion and Research (Ipor)—where the incumbent President Peter Mutharika is “statistically tied” with nemesis and Leader of opposition Lazarus Chakwera at 27 percent and 24 percent respectively, plus Chilima at 16 percent as of August when it was conducted.

Elsewhere, Micheal Usi, popularly known as Manganya, of the Wodya Zake Alibe Mlandu network which is working with UTM  addressed a rally at Che Mbera Village in Balaka  said  Chilima is the leader that has support of a UTM team seeking to emancipate  Malawians from the dungeon of poverty.

“One thing that I like about Chilima as a person is that he has convinced me that he is not desperate for power. I am also not desperate for a position. But we are desperate to help Malawians come out of the mess that we are in today,” he said.

Usi said Malawi deserves change in 2019 and asked people to stand up against an old political order which has trapped the nation in a cycle of mismanagement.

“As we head for the elections in May, every Malawian has a role to play. We have to vote wisely, vote for transformation leadership, vote for change, vote for UTM,” he said.

As an MCP member, I will not support any alliance with UTM or what ever party, if the DPP or any other Party may win which I don’t believe that to happen again, MCP will be playing the same as it is doing, to make sure that all thieves should be known to all our children by giving them names like Prince of Thieves, and so on! So these other parties will be very behind, even to say anything it will be like just a mare person speaking pa meeting at the Area level in our Mighty MCP. By the… Read more »

There is no UTM in the north. I challenge the so called survey. Chakwera will get 65% of the northern vote. Chilima 20% and peter 15%. DPP may win only 4 parliamentary seats in the region. 1 will go to Khumbo kachali of freedom party with the rest going to MCP and a few independents. There seems to be no single seat for UTM. Since chilima said there will be no rigging,zawawa bwana the rigging you did chilima terms and conditions were not met by Peter. Mzuzu city akutenga Bennex mwamlima,Gotani akutenga Ekwendeni. Muuzeni zoona chilimayo inu a UTM.

People went to see manga ya the actor not the politician. You can tell that they were more interested to see the actor, came to see manganya the rapist who bribed officers . Manganya you still have a rape charge. Even a person with a mental illness can complain of being raped. You took advantage of her condition and abused her and used your influence to frustrate the woman.

Komanso tu timkava kuti mkuluyu (Manganya yu) amkakakamiza mkaziyo kuti aziyika chinthu chakecho mkamwa. This is a very serious misconduct, very serious misbehave chifukwa tu oral sex should be voluntary not by force. Worse still, that was sexual harassment as the lady was a junior officer. He must have threatened her of job loss if she chose not to comply. Shame on you Manganya
