Speaker Msowoya joins UTM ‘to propel Malawi towards economic liberation’

Speaker Richard Msowoya who recently  resigned from main opposition Malawi Congress Party (MCP) has now announced his decision  to join the newly established United Transformation Movement (UTM), a political grouping pushing for the presidential candidacy of Vice-President Saulos Chilima in the 2019 Tripartite Elections.

Msowoya, who contested the 2014 presidential elections as runningmate to  MCP president Lazarous Chakwera, said he will attend the UTM  launch by on Saturday in Lilongwe at the Masintha Groung.

“Be ready, be excited, the UTM is setting off ,”  Msowoya said when asked to confirm his post on social media.

In his post on Instagram, Msowoya said: “ My fellow  Malawians. I hereby officially announce that I have joined the United Transformation Movement (UTM).”

Msowoya said his core values, experience in leadership, governance and passion for service align well with the United Transformation Movement.

“Together, let us change mindsets and challenge the status quo; empower our people; create future leaders and opportunities for change and development; reshape and manage policy; and dare to be different; as we propel Malawi towards economic liberation and revival,” he stated.

Msowoya is joining UTM after former MCP  deputy secretary general Chatonda Kaunda and ex-MCP team comprising regional and district chairpersons also joined the Movement.

UTM publicity secretary Joseph Chidanti Malunga said besides Msowoya, there were several other “big names” joining the movement.

Former first lady Callista Mutharika, widow of DPP founding president and former Head of State Bingu wa Mutharika and the incumbent President’s in-law, has said the movement was gaining momentum by the day because Malawians were frustrated with the country’s leadership.

This group called UTM is no threat to anyone. It will stir political environment for a while but then people will start going back to their parties again. This is when one realises that UTM actually stands for United Theft Mission. All criminals, betrayers and cowards are joining this group to act as if they are innocent. This is the most corrupt grouping. Malawians watch out!!!

Richard who? Saulos mwalodzedwa? Iwe Joshua Valera have you properly advised your cousin Saulos? If you don’t give him a good position then brace yourself for court injunctions with his friend Kaliwo. This is United Transfrustration Movement. A group of frustrated rejects from other parties. Next it will be Ntaba.

80% of govt revenues are stolen by civil servants. Nobody can stop that especially Chilima who is s a coward, Chakwera too timid and APM too stupid and JB too dumb and imbecilic. Case closed. Let’s bury Malawi. She died long time ago. We are just a carcass.

BRAVO RICHARD MSOWOYA!!!!!! Finally,you have reached your brightest destination.We of the Malawian diaspora in the US and Canada strongly uphold your nationalistic will to join UTM to enhance the speed of political and economic aspirations which have been a stumbling-block for decades. Indeed,we are hopeful of your talents to addup velocity towards the unification of our country which has been wild fully retarded our economic and political steadfastness.Indeed,your decision to jump on UTM bandwagon is a clear manistetion of a political change after 2019.Your joining in the corrupt and tribalistic MCP a while go,did not represent your ideal political trend.Now… Read more »

Speak for yourself not for ALL of us in the US and Canada. He is an opportunist and a failure. That’s why MCP kicked his arse out. All he wants is to be VP of a party, it doesn’t matter which party. You gotta be sick in the head to think this guy has the interests of Malawians at heart.

What is happening in Malawi has happened before, it just adds excitement to the election process. UTM is not going to win 2019 elections, of course, some of its members will make it to parliament. Chances that DPP will win in 2019 are now still high.

UTM is not a party. When did it get registered?
