Omar defeats Kambala to be UTM purse keeper

Newton Kambala who moved from his United TransformationParty (UTP) to be in  UTM party on Monday was one of the major losers at  its elective convention in Lilongwe.

Chilima with UTM treasurer general Omar

Kambala, who is one of the major financiers of UTM, lost to Lilongwe-based  businessman  Iqbar Omar in the race for treasurer general post.

However, Kambala was gracious in defeat and pledged to continue “giving it all “ to support UTM and its leader  Saulos Chilima.

During the convention, where most positions were unopposed, the 892 delegates elected musician-cum-politician Lucius Banda as campaign director while comedian-cum-politician Bon ‘Winiko’ Kalindo was elected director of youth.

Other artists elected in UTM included comedian  Nicheal Usi of Odya Zake Alibe Mlandu network who was elected as director of strategic planning and  gospel singer and legislator Allan  Ngumuya as deputy organising secretary. The national organising secretary is Willet Kalonga MP.

Former MP Anita Jumbe Kalinde was elected  director of political affairs while Levi Luwemba was voted deputy secretary general.

Other candidates  had no opposition, such as Patricia Kaliati, who has assumed the position ofsecretary general, former  first lady Patricia Shanil Dzimbiri (formerlyMuluzi) as director of women, Paul Chibingu as director of elections and Joseph Chidanti Malunga  as director of publicity.

Also elected unopposed was Yassin Maoni as Director of Legal Affairs.

Several deputy directors went unopposed, they included: Deputy Director of Political Affairs: Emily Chinthu Phiri, Maquenda Chunga(Deputy National Campaign Director ) , Charles Kazembe (Deputy Director of Economic Development), Olipa Muyawa (Deputy National Treasurer),  Alice KanyaniJohnson  (Deputy Director of Strategic Planning), Deputy director of Student Affairs Leonard Kamatenda, Annie Nyadani Makuta ( Deputy director of women and Fatima Nkata is deputy director of Diaspora.

The mood was equally electric with top class decorations of UTM’s  red and yellow cloths covering almost every space.

Kambala has sold his freedom to Chilima. Again Chilima is surrounded by DPP informants or simply put spies. The result is UTM is going nowhere, SK.C is on checkmate!!!

If many positions went unopposed it means many people have no interest in this party of greedy leaders. Those guys from the north like Msowoya and Nyalonje were told by their constituents that by joing UTM they should forget about their seats. In Msowoya competition is between MCP candidate and AN independent who lost in primaries. For Nyalonje competitio is between MCP candodate and DPP candidate. UTM IS JUST FULL OF DECORATED PROMISES.

A Kambala mwapititsa chipani poyerayera and your party has no member in the new executive. This is politics and not business. You were naive by going to UTM alone and not with the other parties as you became very vulnerable to the DPP guys. Uyisovenge.
