MCP, UTM alliance will crack with these disloyal politicians they are welcoming

If there is something Malawi Congress Party (MCP) and UTM should be so worried about, today, then it’s these disloyal  politicians they keep, separately, welcoming into their fold.

Tonse alliance

Each and every day we keep getting stuffed with news of this politician or that separately joining either UTM or MCP – who are in the governing Tonse Alliance.

To these two parties, it is easy to think their respective parties are becoming attractive and, in fact, they even interpret this as growth.

I chose to differ.

These disloyal politicians ditching their parties are nothing but ‘chenji golos’, first rate rent-seekers, driven by nothing but greed.

They bring nothing to UTM and MCP apart from the greed to enjoy State protection and privileges.

The greatest challenge is that UTM and MCP will start priotising these incoming disloyal ones at the expense of their die-hards, their loyal members who have always been in the mud, making things happen.

Once frustration among the die-hards begins, that is where the two parties will find it hard to govern because they would have created enemies within.

What we must underline is that UTM and MCP, plus other alliance partners, managed to win June 23 Fresh Presidential Elections without these disloyal politicians they keep receiving into their fold every day.

The best thing for UTM and MCP to do now is to take care of its die-hards and, most importantly, implement every promise they made to ensure that they attract more voters.

The support the two parties need now is not from ‘chenji golo’ type of politicians—these are sellouts; they are in this to feed their bellies.

UTM and MCP need to fulfill their campaign promises.  The moment they do that, Malawians will keep them in power.

This thing of separately coercing disloyal politicians from other political blocks is only creating tensions between the president and the vice president because they are, both, leading different political parties.

We are not ready for another president and vice president debacle. UTM and MCP must concentrate on fulfilling campaign promises, not these vain and destructive attempts of coercing disloyal politicians in their respective fold.

My concern with MCP & UTM is that some of the cabinet ministers appointed by the President have basic interest in such hiring.They cannot be able to convince people on the ground for instance they highly talk about poor construction of the road,Mining sector and yet to them have such companies in pockets,conflict of interest between them. The President should seriously look into those factors. This will later on bring more trouble to these two parties because these mistakes caused are not made by one party only but mcp and utm as each one busy employing his people. We are… Read more »

The Tonse unity has been thrown out of the windows. For the ambitions of SKC and greed and corrupt ways of Chakwera has split apart the alliance down. Kapatila Chihana and Mama Corruption Joyce Banda are out of the alliance too it would seem. Chakwera being corrupt has opened up the doors for other honest honest leaders. Maybe Bar Waiter Roy Kachale? As for SKC he should first explain where and from who he received the vast fortune / money to run a very costly and well funded campaign. From word go Chilima has been extravagant so where did he… Read more »

You’re spot on, Fiko. These latter day converts are nothing but opportunists. You celebrate them at your own peril. If it is numbers in Parliament that you’re worried about, do the hard work, fulfil your campaign promises and transform Malawi as you promised. You’ll naturally attract more voters at the next elections and legitimately beef up your numbers in Parliament. We know you’re “buying” these defectors using our money. Why don’t you use that money to fight Covid-19? This is my warning to the Tonse Alliance leadership – don’t take Malawians for granted. We will vote you out of power… Read more »

I strongly agree to this. Even if they say they are not strong in some other areas, no party in malawi has ever had support from all regions. They could have been implementing what they promised malawians than welcoming defectors. These defectors did the same during Bingu regime, joined mai Banda, rejoined Peter Muthalika, now they are defecting n join tonse alliance. What is it that they did during all these years? This is not the kind of politics that we need now. These people will be spying and look for loopholes in the alliance. They will be feeding their… Read more »

I personally feel betrayed to see someone who organised cadets to stone my pickup, because the MCP President had used it as a platform, now he is going around saying that I am stupid for not benefiting after the win while those who were fighting us are the ones benefiting. I have a good contract from a reputable company and earn handsomely i got this before the win. But my heart goes to those poor jobless but educated boys who are still expectant. This story is true for those hard working boys. UTM and MCP shouldn’t underestimate DPP and UDF.… Read more »
