Mtambo attacks Atupele, strikes a chord in MCP stronghold

Former firebrand human rights activist Timothy Mtambo who joined frontline politics through a political movement Citizens for Transformation (CFT) turned the campaign mood into great excitement of the crowd of hundreds of people who had gathered at Lumbadzi in Lilongwe when campaigned for electoral alliance between Malawi Congress Party (MCP) and UTM Party.

Hundreds of people turned out for the whistle-stop meetings  organised by MCP  in its Central Region stronghold areas of  Lumbadzi, Dowa Turn off, Msakambewa, Dowa Boma and Mvera mission.

When the boisterous politician Mtambo took to the podium, clad in his black beret – his catchy trademark – the crowd greeted him with loud cheers.

The “Commander-In-Chief” of CFT-People Power Movement took much time attacking United Democratic Front (UDF) president Atupele Muluzi, who is running mate to President Peter Mutharika of Democratic Progressive Party (DPP).

Mtambo quashed what Atupele has been saying in his campaign rallies that Malawians should vote for Mutharika, saying he is a tried and tested leader.

“What experience is Atupele talking about? Is it experience of thieving? Atupele has no experience, I have more competence in statecraft than Atupele,” said Mtambo.

In the course of his unscripted speech, Mtambo mercilessly ridiculed Atupele and Mutharika.

But between the jabs and the jokes, he stressed that his movement will assist MCP and UTM Party and their alliance partners to unseat President Mutharika and his DPP in the fresh presidential election.

Polling is due on July 2, but could be brought forward to June 23 by parliament, according to Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC).

The ‘Commander-in-Chief’ said DPP and UDF have presided over “great mess” in the country since 1994 and “do not represent the aspirations of our people, its time they should be ejected from power.”

Mtambo made a name as chairperson of Human Rights Defenders Coalition (HRDC) with their militant approach to fighting for people’s rights. President Mutharika and his governing DPP cadres often branded the grouping political, arguing that it was bent to fault government while treating the opposition with kid gloves.

The beginning of the fall of Mtambo….he has turned the minds of Malawians into violence. Even his dressing tells it all. How many Malawians have lost their propeties and bussiness due to his so called demos? Yet Ansah is still on the seat. I thought using law to throw Ansah out was the best altenative… shallow minded only will follow him.

So some of you see a leader in mtambo? With all the violence which was sponsored by UTMCP but executed by mtambo who can vote for these terrorists? Malawians, let us not make a mistake. UTMCP is very violent and rough and the situation can be worse if given power. Nobody shall be able to say anything if Chakwera and friends shall assume power because they are too autocratic and heavy handed.

Choose APM, choose peace, choose development.

Mtambo thinks people came to hear his nonsense, in fact they came to see who the fool he was in causing havoc to most people and their businesses. In addition, he thinks he can fool us by his direction he has taken, supporting the Tiri tonse alliance. U dont bring a fool to succeed and u can c the fall of MCP and UTM plus this bustard called Mtambo. Malawians are very clever and Mtambo has actually taken away followers of MCP and UTM to the other parties and thats how the fall will be. He pretends to make CFT… Read more »

Atupele is as clueless as his boss APM. The young man is a disappointment because the youth of this country expected originality from him and yet all he ranting about is to prop the Methuselah of Malawi.

Mutharika must be extremely careful because Atupele’s mission is to revenge what the late Bingu did to his ruthless father who will stop at nothing but take Malawi back to Kapoloma. Memories are still fresh about his Third and Open Term bids.

You have been warned.

That’s true and just imagine if Muthalika with his sickness decide to stop being president do you think young Atupere can lead Malawi. For sure what he want is to revenge ndiye agogo a Peter kusamva. Paja ukamamfa amati amayamba ndi makuti.
The good thing ndi chakuti a Malawi apenya pano. Peter he could have been done better but people who sorounded him they have made him to become enemies of Malawi. Now it’s like we are living in Banana Republic, no Police force, No president only acting an incomplete president.

This idiot Ntumbo was used by the fake accent ex-reverend Lezala Nyolonyo and his crime partner Zeze over the past 10 months to loot, burn, stone and main in Lilongwe. As the video clip circulated, to make Malawi ungovernable as precursor to an illegitimate regime change. Their main motivation: atumbuka call it Dhyerrha. Tell us real campaign issues instead of wasting our space with insults on Atupele.
