Mwenifumbo galvanises support for Atupele in North Malawi: UDF presidential ticket

Karonga central legislator  Frank Tumpale  Mwenifumbo, who is also running mate to United Democrtaic Front (UDF) presidential candidate,  has told people in the north to massively vote for Atupele Muluzi, saying he is the unifying figure the country needs now.

Addressing a rally in Mzimba on Wednesday, Mwenifumbo said Atupele is the only serious presidential candidate who has chosen a person from the north as his running mate.

“This shows that the Right Honourable Muluzi sees things beyond tribe or region. He does not practise tribalism, regionalism, nepotism, cronyism, favouritism or corruption. He is the clean leader.

“Let us all people from the north thank him for practising this clean politics by voting him into the presidential office. After all, your own son will be the vice president, ” said Mwenifumbo.

He said the Muluzi administration would end the quota system   – not just by lip service but action – which he said has negatively affected people from the north and other regions as well.

“We should have a threshold. For instance, students who get from six points to 25 should be admitted to public universities on merit. If there is still space in the universities, then quota can apply for students who score 25 and above,” he said.

In an interview later, Mwenifumbo said the country’s economy can improve further through remittances.

He said Malawi should be able to train the youth in what he called white blue collar jobs.

“The government can make arrangements so that our students are trained as engineers fothdyr aeroplanes. When they finish, they will obviously work in Europe or Asia where there are many planes, in doing so, they will be sending money to the country,” he said.

Both Alliance for Democracy (Aford) and UDF supporters attended the meeting.

I am pure Malawian first and pure northerner second. We will not vote for wolves in sheep skin. Stop this northern crap. Vyauchindere pano cha! This Benghazi thug who hired his impulse-driven Ngonde kinsmen to cause havoc around Mwenilondo/Lwasho. He was once UDF and uses Young-Democrat tactics to see-off his opponents and thinks he can be voted into power. Atupele you are the president of UDF and swimming in the glory of stolen money by your father. Bakili spoiled this country PERIOD!!!. Zindamukwanani yaye izo mulikwiba. Uzukusi!!!

I have never heard AAM talking against quota system in the govt he is helping to govern, he would have said that in cabinet meetings. I cant take that becoz of band kugawana zida, the same applies to SKC.

Many of you are failing to see the gesture that Atupele Muluzi has done. Effectively Atupele is saying time has come that my tribe or region should not be a yardstick for me to be a leader. UDF gave us Munyenyembe as a Speaker and unlike PP which basically divorced Khumbo Kachale upon appointing him., dropping him from being a running mate, UDF is saying let’s work together and have a new beginning.. lets NOT dwell on personalities. Let’s dwell on an opportunity that has presented itself and we just need to harness it. The North is part of Malawi.… Read more »

The fallacy of your argument is to say those that have chosen runningmates from other regions other than the north are regionalistic.Say Mutharika who is a southerner choosing Chimulirenji from Ntcheu(Central/Eastern) is practicing regionalism…Chakwera from Central choosing Mia from the South is as well practicing regionalism as if the south and the centre are not regions and only the north is the region. Stop that Mwenefumbo.Such kind of politics stinks!!!

Atupele and his Udf lero? Atupele is working with thieves in dpp and his father is a crook. Even Frank has multiple girl friends and is not ashamed to hook married women as well. Crooked and wicked Frank.
