MCP says ‘comrade’ Mtambo’s endorsement of MCP-UTM alliance is morale booster

The opposition Malawi Congress Party  (MCP) has welcomed the endorsement of the UTM-MCP alliance by former Human Rights Defenders Coalition (HRDC) Timothy Mtambo, now leading  a political movement,  as  a morale booster.

Mtambo said his liberation and transformation movement endorses the UTM and MCP electoral alliance

Mtambo made the endorsement  of MCP-UTM alliance on Wednesday ayt a news conference where among other things he announced his departure from HRDC to form Citizens For Transformation-People Power Movement (CFT).

In his statement Mtambo announced that he is endorsing the grand alliance of UTM and MCP and their coalition partners.

“I have a lot of faith in the leadership of Dr Lazarus Chakwera  and his team. Who can doubt the credibility if Dr Saulos Chilima, Dr Joyce Banda, Enock Chihana and their teas? These are leaders who  have selflessly committed to the alliance, in collective action to  rescue  Malawi from the oppressive regime,” said Mtambo.

Mtambo said his political movement will embark on a massive civic education campaign to mobilise the masses across the country and implore  on every Malawian to vote for the UTM-MCP alliance.

According to Mtambo, the CFT will pursue an agenda for transformation and is founded on values of human rights-based approach, peaceful co-existence, rule of law, active and patriotic citizenship in pressing for inclusive social, political and economic transformation and a prosperous future for all Malawians.

“The (CFT) is focused on bringing all well-meaning Malawians together towards their quest for social, political and economic emancipation and transformation. For me, this movement is a transition and a culmination of my long walk with you fellow Malawians, as we marched through the streets of Lilongwe, Blantyre, Mzuzu, Zomba, Mchinji, Salima, Mangochi, Balaka – just to mention a few of the places where our fight for democratic values has left footprints that time and history will never delete. These were the places where we were teargassed together, beaten together, arrested together with many of you,” he said.

MCP Publicity Secretary Rev. Maurice Munthali said it is clear that their collective mission resonates well with the aspirations of the majority of Malawians.

“It energises our leaders’ resolve to pursue the agenda for a transformed Malawi which will be fair to all citizens. With such endorsements, victory is guaranteed in the forthcoming fresh election,” Munthali said.

He added: “We salute Comrade Timothy Mtambo for his unrelenting and vigilant efforts to liberate this country. His patriotism and invaluable passion for Malawi and her people cannot go unnoticed. He is one fearless and resolute freedom fighter this country”.

Mtambo has since resigned as Chairperson for HRDC but was grateful for all the years of support and encouragement he got from HRDC and Centre for Human Rights and Rehabilitation (CHRR).

This is an MCP wing similar to the MYP. You have seen their actions! Mtambo is going to be used by Chakwera to unleash more violence and terror during the campaign period. The man has been hired infact by MCP.

For those of you that did not know what was going on here it is. Mtambo was project “regime” change. Now with Nundwe gone and after Nundwe didn’t buy into the project it became difficult to go after the project with Namathanga at the help. To use plan B Livingstonia Synod asked the MCP UTM alliance to promise Second Vice Presidency to one of their own in the North. The Vice Presidency can only be given to an individual that comes from another party hence Mtambo’s new Party. Mtambo was chosen by Livingstonia synod. Malawians have lost a lot due… Read more »

Just to remind Mtambo, politics is a dirty game. The fact that you have come in the open you are now in for it. Ask Chakwela and Chilima they thought life will be easy with politics. As a politician now no one can trust you just the way no politician is trusted. Am sure your evil works were smartly covered by your HRDC as an activist. Now even Chakwela and Chilima or Joyce Banda can not trust 100%. See how Sidic Mia has changed parties, that politics. You have now decided to operate in a danger zone for the rest… Read more »

Chakwera has always enjoyed spilling blood. He organised Nsundwe Boys with the help of Mtambo.

Of all the parties, it is MCP and Chakwera that are the first to applaud Mtambo – the violent thug.

Morale booster from blood-thirsty violent thugs. One day Chakwera will pay the price of glorifying militant and violent politics.

If the DPP haven’t paid anything on the blood shed and other atrocities they have committed before Malawians: the Njaunju murder, this young innocent Poly student (Chasowa) murder to mention just a few, how do you justify that Chakwera will pay for your so called millitants which intact do not exist?

However you are entitled to your opinion. Remember an opinion is like an ass hole: everyone is entitled to one.
