Waziri says Omar should lead UDF

Omar, who was party vice president before being sacked, has hired the services of Robert Kadzakumanja and Company law firm to contest against the decision made late last year by UDF to expel him on accusations that he was setting parallel structures.

He denies the accusations.

But he has structures that he runs under the banner of UDF parallel to the party rank and file.

He bankrolled and organised his grouping to hold a news conference in Lilongwe where the people said they want UDF president to step down so Omar can take over, threatening unspecified action.

Alex Waziri, who is a leader of the Omar faction, said Atupele should resign peacefully or the group will use force him to quit.

“Atupele has killed UDF. The party is dead, what we are saying is that we need someone who will steer the party to great heights,” said Waziri.

He said Omar wants to resurrect UDF and fight the Democratic Progressive Party government against bad governance and economic mismanagement.

But UDF spokesperson, Ken Ndanga, recently trashed the comments from the Omar faction saying they are expelled members have no mandate to comment on party issues.

Kodi mukamati UDF yatha ngati makatani what do you actually mean? if that is a case why people still fight to be in UDF? that alone signifies to me that UDF is the strong party in Malawi, and Atupele is a good leader. Even though am not UDF but i love Atupele Muluzi, the guy is intelligent and has a good vision for Malawi and he loves his country that’s why after elections he work to save people not like other selfish people.

Atupele has his eyes on state presidency as promised to him, therefore come rain or shine he’ll stick with DPP until his ambition to rule is fulfilled.

Little did the so called Atcheya knew that the `kutha ngati makatani’ words will define his own party. History will repeat itself, ask AFORD! Family parties! Enawonso adzathanso choncho, only time will tell.
