Screen all aspiring candidates, Kaliati tells UTM officials

United Transformation Movement (UTM) secretary general Patricia Kaliati has told movement officials to screen and vet carefully all aspiring candidates for various positions, saying some of them have been sent by the ruling party to infiltrate the movement.

Kaliati: We need to cut the chuff

Kaliati said this during a rally on Sunday which UTM leader Saulos Chilina held in Ntcheu.

“We have information that some of these people joining us and seeking positions in the party have been sent by the DPP (Democratic Progressive Party). They want to infiltrate our movement and start causing problems so be careful, be on the look out please,” she said.

Chilima said the movement, which is now a registered political party, will go for a convention any time soon where office bearers will be elected.

He said soon after the elective convention, the movement will go for primary elections to elect people who will represent the party during the 2019 elections on positions of members of parliament and ward councilors.

Kaliati also told movement officials against name calling or castigation of political opponents during the campaign, saying UTM was to play a clean campaign.

She said officials should be telling people what Chilima and UTM would do for Malawians once voted into power.

Will UTM conguer MCP in the centre? Will it conguer DPP in the Lhomweland? The 2019 game is between MCP and DPP wosati za mmataunizo ayi.

The first to be screen is akweni herself. We need to know what happened to her case where she abused a housemaid accusing her of giving her fruit to her husband when she was busy with politics. we need to know what happened to the vwaza national park concession deal. we need to know what happened to the issue of police recruits where she was alleged to have imposed recruits from her area some her relatives.

kkkkkk her cases were caught by the limitation period such that they are statute barred. Evidence is stale kkkkk most witnesses knowledgeable of the facts are now too old. They cannot remember vividly all the facts. Save for the housemaid. Others relocated to far away places such that it would be very costly to look for them in readiness of the cases which have gathered dust ….kkkkk wheels of justice in Malawi … at times get clogged.
