Kunkuyu says DPP, UTM in alliance to frustrate MCP

Main opposition Malawi Congress Party (MCP) campaign director Moses Kunkuyu has made a stinging attack on the ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) and UTM party, alleging they are in alliance to frustrate the MCP.

Kunkuyu: Chilima and his UTM are eating the support base of MCP

Speaking at a political rally at Chibavi on Sunday, Kunkuyu said the DPP deliberately allowed the vice president SaulosChilima to form the UTM as an electoral alliance ploy to take away votes from the MCP.

“This was a deliberate move by the DPP, these are shrewed politicians. They knew that MCP could have a walk over DPP had we not  have a new party,” said Kunkuyu.

He, however, said that the MCP is now fired up and would win the May 21 2019 elections.

But after the rally, Kunkuyu failed to give evidence on the allegations.

“I will give the evidence at the right time but what I said is politically correct,” he said.

DPP spokesperson Nichala sDausi described the remark as absured whilst UTM secretary general Patricia Kaliati said MCP is sensing loss hence coming up with excuses.

UTM has shaken the political landscape in Malawi ever seen before with massive crowds attending rallies organized by Chilima and UTM officials across the country.

Findings of a survey conducted by Zomba-based Institute of Public Opinion and Research (Ipor) released last week showed that UTM and its leader are the third most popular grouping after DPP andMCP/

The survey report, dated October 28 2018, was conducted between August and September—barely weeks after UTM was launched—to assess the political environment in the country with 10 months to the elections and give an understanding of the political and economic environment in the country.

If true then its genius move on the part of UTM, MCP and PP. It’s the only way Malawi will move forward. Currently the ruling party has stale ideas and going backwards against general global trends. We have people who are in their sunset planning for the next generation whose world order they have no idea of. As the world talks of Internet of Things and the 4th Industrial Revolution/digital World; they are still thinking of slates and blackboards & chalk. Countries are talking of capacitating their countries with manufacturing/production base Malawian leaders are still talking about doing trade with… Read more »

Politics is not for cry-babies. We have said it before and we will say it again: DPP is set to win the 2019 elections whether with a slight margin or landslide unless the entire opposition unite and rally behind one presidential candidate against APM and his DPP. The coming in of UTM will only affect the DPP with regards to MPs only but otherwise it weakens the presidential hopes of Dr Laz and boosts the chances of APM and DPP. This is not a prophecy but a fact.
