Mtambo warns against voter apathy in Malawi presidential re-vote

Malawians will lose out if  voter apathy is the winner in Tuesday’s  fresh presidential elections, Citizens for Transformation (CFT) leader Timothy Mtambo has said.

Mtambo: Let people come out to vote

Mtambo, a former human rights campaigner turned politician,   took the unusual step of intervening in an election campaign to urge people to come out and vote.

“Not to use your vote is, in my opinion, a surrender of your democratic right and, more importantly, it will result in the loss of something valuable, which you may regret in the future,” said Mtambo.

The self-style commander was speaking at Gologota in Lilongwe City South East at a rally he addressed together with legislator for the area Ulemu Msungama.

Mtambo reassured the people that a vote for Dr Lazarus Chakwera  of Malawi Congress Party (MCP) to be the country’s next leader and his running mate Dr Saulos Chilima is the only vote that will liberate Malawi.

Popularly known as comrade, Mtambo said. “I have travelled throughout Malawi, everywhere I go people are talking about Chakwera and Chilima”

He attacked DPP -UDF alliance, saying that lacks proper leadership and cannot compare to the Tonse Alliance team.

“A leader needs to be intelligent, loving and humble and this is what you find in Dr Chakwera and Dr Chilima, and you can’t compare these leaders to Mutharika and Atupele who lack any of the leadership qualities,” charged Mtambo.

Mtambo  warned people against voter apathy.

“I know sometimes we get discouraged and don’t want to go and vote just because we think our vote will be stolen and we will lose, but let me encourage you that  we will do our best to safeguard the vote and no vote will be stolen this time,” said Mtambo.

In his remarks, Msungama thanked Mtambo for the sacrifices he has made for Malawi  from the time that he was part of the Human Rights Defenders Coalition (HRDC).

Msungama went on to remind people that Chakwera and Chilima is the dream ticket that will take care of the many of the problems that many Malawians face.

He blamed the DPP government and their predecessors UDF for not doing enough to  bring any meaningful development and improving peoples livelihood in  Malawi.

Other officials who spoke at the rally include UTM official Iqbal Omar and Lilongwe City West MP  George Zulu.  They both encouraged those that registered to vote to go and vote in large numbers and to vote for Tonse alliance .

Also, in attendance was the CFT movement leader in the diaspora Linda Khembo Nwosu who has flown from Manchester. UK.

Mtambo ndani? Go and ask your eighty years old Peter Muthalika, he will tell you that he is a “terrorist” yet Mtambo comes from Chitipa Central Constituency. The energetic Timothy Pagonanji Mtambo, the modern Malawi Politicians has travelled across the country including Ndirande where some Mangochi DPP cadets failed to disturb his whistle stop rally and in the process were taught bitter lessons.

It is indeed very important that Tonse alliance should find a way of getting the 1 million central region registered voters that did not vote in the last election to come out to vote this time!!! These are potentially your votes and a significant chunk likely to affect the outcome of the election!!!!

After all being said and done my fellow Malawians if you want real change to our country’s politics MMD is the way to go thus only clean and diamond politician. Voting for DPP now that you are changing only VP voting for MCP know that you are maintaining the failing VP who manufactured crisis in Malawi in trying to become chrasmatic leader. Unfortunately not all chrasmatic leaders are transformational leaders. This is what is going to happen when we put ourselves in hands of MCP we will open another chapter of unproductive years as SCK will be continuing with his… Read more »
