Mtambo’s divides his CFT  movement over aligning with MCP: Members move enmasse to UTM 

A division has rocked Citizens for Transformation (CFT) following a decision by its founder, Timothy Mtambo, to publicly campaign for the Malawi Congress Party (MCP) candidate in the Karonga Central constituency by-election.

The CFT members argue that by campaigning for the MCP candidate, Mtambo, who is also the Minister of Civic Education and National Unity, has shown his true political colours.

A UTM Party sympathizer and member of the CFT, Oscar Gondwe, stresses that although there is no problem with Mtambo joining or affiliating himself to a political party of his choice, the minister has betrayed people who followed him when he launched the people power movement.

“It’s not a matter of who is clever or who is a prostitute. The borne of contention here is that Mtambo has shown his true colours. All members of CFT has now known Mtambo is MCP member.

“In fact there is no problem with that, the only problem which has risen is that not all members of CFT are MCP supporters. Remember CFT was said to be neutral and ready to rise against anybody who happen to be a law breaker. Now that he is fully supporting MCP, other members remained with no choice, but to also show up their choices. The best way to go is to dissolve CFT and let members follow any party of their choices,” writes Gondwe on one of the social groups.

Mtambo has been aligning more with MCP even apologising for its past atrocities in one party dictatorship.

His movement had more youths advocating for transformation and they feel Mtambo’s political ideologies are premised om self-serving.

Apa palibepo zamgwirizano apa the earlier you part ways the better to prevent confusions like this. Chat with staunch MCP supporters they will tell you clearly Chakwera is standing for reelection in 2025 no matter the secret agreement on rotational presidency.
Njoka mukuwetayi ikakukulungani nkhosi mpomwe muzamvetse why APM he booted out these people from DPP. Anthu oipa awa panopa angolakalaka chinachake chausatanic chitachitika kuti atenge mpando. Koma mulungu waLazalo salora mwauponda mpaka 2030 wooo Atupele kutenga boma.

SKC said after Chakwera it will be him but no mention of one term, 2025 or any timeline. What if he meant after The President had served up to his two terms as prescribed by the constitution? what if it was a ruse for bring the disgruntled UTM supporters into the Tonse Alliance fold because SKC realized he would be dancing the same tune Chisale is dancing to now without protection as VP? MCP has it’s own constitution that outlines how a Presidential candidate of the party is selected and so does UTM. To the best of our knowledge, that… Read more »

There is no story here. He can support whoever he wants just as he supported Chakwera/SKC ticket and the UTM candidate supported the UDF ticket. All this noise by UTM cadres is just a way of life and thinking for them. They latch on to any story, big and small, then spend the next few days regurgitating the it until another one comes along. Days are spent scouring the social media looking for anything that will make them feel something (i.e. aggrieved, relevant, important, correct) because that’s the only place they will get any validation that they exist. Now imagine… Read more »

Palibe nkhani apa. You wanted Mtambo to be with UTM? We already tested UTM and they only managed 4 seats. Kungoti ku UTM kuli anthu okula mtima. Tiwona 2025. Muwinetu ku Phalombe and Lilongwe North West.
