Lilian Patel says PP taking Malawians for granted: Condemns removal of UDF flags

The United Democratic Front (UDF) vice president for eastern region, Lilian Patel has accused Peoples Party (PP) leadership for taking Malawians for granted.

Patel: Condemns PP for removing UDF flags

Patel made the accusation on Wednesday in Zomba during a whistle stop tour she conducted in the district.

She said this following Peoples Party  (PP) and its leadership’s decision to endorse Malawi Congress Party presidential candidate, Lazarus Chakwera in the May tripartite elections.

“I wonder why PP leadership decided to take Malawians back to the party with a bad record like MCP.

“We cannot forget the bad things which this party did to our relatives during its 30 years of leadership,” wondered Patel.

She then asked Malawians to vote for Atupele Muluzi saying he had wide experience in leadership skills after serving as Member of Parliament for 15 years and as a cabinet minister for the past five years.

UDF shadow MP for Zomba Central constituency, Hasheem Banda complained that some supporters from other political parties were removing UDF flags in his constituency.

Banda condemned the action saying this is not the democracy people voted for in 1993.

Responding to the removal of UDF flags, Patel advised Banda to report to the Malawi Electoral Commission and the Malawi Police.

She also appealed to UDF supporters to maintain peace throughout the campaign period.

If udf were a better party why is it fast dying? Mbuzi Patel answer now. You blame PP for going to MCP, why did you not blame udf for going to MCP in 2009? That is why I call you Mbuzi because you have a short memory. Why did Atupele go dpp a party Bakili said muphwetsa Did Bakili not apologise for imposing Bingu on you? Check Bakili’s speech on YouTube at Chitakale. Udf is responsible for all the bad things Malawi is going through from poor standards of education to corruption. Bakili created Bakili, Neno, Likoma and Phalombe without… Read more »

Poor lady. Still living in the past. The problem we have in malawi is that most of our leaders are simply old folks who refuse to let go of the past. With leaders so stuck in the past where do you think they can take us to. Modernity ? . Wishful thinking. Malawi needs paradigm shift and old folks like Patel, mutharika , Goodall the list is long can’t bring paradigm shift. They are simply too old to do things differently.

Malawi already made a mistake to chose Muluzi to rule Malawi for 10years. Now you want us to make another mistake
