Tcheya denies telling opposition to drop poll case: UTM councillor says remarks ‘taken out of context’

UTM Party councilor for Tukombo in Nkhata Bay is strenuously rejecting reports that he has told the opposition to drop the  presidential election case and the civil rights activists to stop anti-Jane Ansah protests.

Tcheya addressing people at a rally  

In an interview with Nyasa Times on Tuesday afternoon, Ackleyn Tcheya said his comments were taken out of context, saying he never made those comments at a rally attended by Minister of Lands and Housing Symon Vuwa Kaunda.

“I was invited to attend the rally because it was a development rally, I was told. As a ward councilor, I am the custodian of all development in my area, this is why I was compelled to attend,” he said.

He said he supported the Malawi Congress Party (MCP) and UTM decision to go to court to challenge the May 21 presidential election results.

“We all know that the election result was manipulated…I support what my party has done to challenge the results in court. As a UTM councilor, I subscribe to all what the UTM leadership does,” said Tcheya.

He also said he never mentioned the Human Rights Defenders Coalition during his speech, saying the rights activists have a Republican constitutional mandate to protest on any issue.

Tcheya, who is the Nkhata Bay district council chairperson, has since blamed the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) propagandists for twisting what he said during the rally to suit the ruling party.

Please do not be bought by dpp. If people voted for u while in UTM this means people trusted u and the party and then you can dispose the party and align with dpp. DPP are thieves and crooks who do not want this country well that is why they are clinging to power. He failed elections and manipulated it zopusa basi. God is watching and can not betray the country.

Hahah eish anyway that is part of politics Tcheya. Utsova otherwise u have lost direction.

Kulibe DPP ku Nkhata bay otherwise Vuwa Kaunda is in that position due to stolen votes.

Next time tread carefully once invited by these propaganda Cadets.

The situation is not conducive now for u to attend these rallies and try to avoid them now.

We in UTM will not hesitate to fire any disgruntled member. The future of Malawi is in UTM with our Dr SKC as the head.

Umakatani konko? Development rally my foot. Kupusa kumeneko, how do you wine and dine with the enemy and expect to be quoted properly. Doesn’t he know that politics is about contestation, information, misinformation and disinformation. UTM people are very dull. You won’t see MCP people making such dumb mistakes.
