Kaliati warns against ‘cheap’ handouts: UTM makes inroads in Lhomwe belt

UTM Party secretary general Patricia Kaliati has told people of Mulanje not to be fooled by last minute gestures from the ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) but focus on building a bright future under her party.

Kaliati speaking at one of Chilima’s whistle stop in Mulanje

Kaliati was speaking at Masubi Primary School Ground in Traditional Authority Chikumbu’s area during a rally held by state vice president Saulos Chilima.
She said the current government had shown no interest in the people of Mulanje since they voted it in five years ago and it was an insult to come in with token development projects with only a few weeks to the next tripartite elections.
“No president has come to this area since 2014 because they don’t care about you. Now we hear they are tapping water from Mulanje to take it to Blantyre when people of Mulanje have no clean water. What reason do you have for voting in such people again?” she asked the agitated crowd.
The UTM secretary general told the crowd not to forget that the DPP promised them a market for their pigeon peas in India which never materialised.
“India is the world’s largest producer of pigeon peas. How could they buy from us? It shows you how untrustworthy these people are,” she said.
Kaliati, who was MP for Mulanje West in the just dissolved Parliament, warned people of Mulanje not to be lured by cash and material handouts because that will not go beyond voting day, saying choosing Chilima and UTM is the country’s best assurance for a bright future.
She said UTM is geared to offer a better deal for farmers, the youth and women.
Mulanje district has nine constituencies and Chilima held imbizo meetings in four of them before addressing the main rally at Masubi which is in Mulanje Bale constituency.

My people. Why do we want to be stuck in this DPP Madness for another five years? What do we lose to vote in a new party and see how our lives would change. I don’t want to let the same DPP officials enrich themselves while I get poorer for another five years. I lose nothing to try in Chilima. Honestry, unless something is wrong with us, Chilima is the only hope. If we let DPP rule for another five years, and that because these people will have stolen too much, they will force themselves to rule again for another… Read more »

Kaliati is pathetic. What is wrong to tap water from Melanie to Other parts of Malawi. The project is not only benefiting people of Blantyre, but it will also benefit the people of Mulanje. If the area has seen no development , this is the best time to boot you out. The area needs development not president. Malawi is blessed with natural resources and it has to benefit the country. This kind of thinking is what has derailed the pumping of water from Lake Malawi, from Salima to Lilongwe. This kind of politicians needs to be booted out , they… Read more »

Kulephere kwa president and DPP = yours because you were there for 4year 3month. Muziputsitsa alomwe omwewo koma enafe tikudziwa ndinu amodzi
My free advice to all. Best altenative for DPP is not UTM.

Where were Chilima and Kaliati the past 5 years? Azidziwa liti zimene akukamba zo? Only brain-dead Malawians will believe these Catholic hypocrites.

I don’t trust Chilima , Kaliati, Masangwi , Ngalande and Makonde they are a bunch of disgruntled politicians full of hate.
Kodi Mai Kaliati milandu yosokoneza ndalama za ku Viphya ili pati?nanga nepotism munasiya liti ? You sent your kids to China universities using government scholarships and on top of that you sent your own daughter to the UK for diplomatic services pano mwayambana ndi APM ndiye mukufuna tikuthandizeni mwalemba mmadzi .
I wonder why SKC trusts you you are a security risks to UTM your husband is DPP and I am sure you tell him about all the secrets of UTM.
