Thousands of people flocked to Songani  when the president of the  United Democratic  Front ( UDF) Atupele Muluzi, on Sunday  invaded Zomba  Malosa  Constituency,  the home  of  firmer  president  Joyce  Banda where  he addressed a public  rally .

If the  numbers  which  attended  the rally are anything  to go  by,  then the UDF leader  has  not  lost  his political prowes  when it comes to  mobilisation.

Atupele, who was accompanied  by  senior members of the UDF  party including  some members of parliament,  told  the gathering  that  he  is, not  bothered  by  what   he called his detractors, say about him  and  his party, saying  he  is  focused  in making  sure  that  he  rebuilds  a, strong  party  in readiness for  the  2019 elections and  also  serving  the country.

The UDF leader vowed not to involve himself “at any level with personal abuse” and the “gutter” sniping.

” Am not  shaken by  what our detractors  say  about me  and  the party. Let them say what they want  because  I know they can never say  any thing good about us. These are enemies of the party,” he said.

Atupele said the UDF top brass has been trying to put forward different ideas and approach.

He told  the people  that  as president  of the  UDF  he is on a national wide  tour  to  interact  with  members and supporters of  the  party  and hear  from them on how the party can be strengthened.

Atupele  was  quick however to say that  his party  has not started  the campaign  yet.

He told  the gathering  that  so far  he has  lined up  meetings  in Blantyre,  Chikwawa  and  Mangochi.

Others  who spoke  at the rally were the party  regional governor for the Eastern Region, a legislature , Abubakar Mbaya  and  the party Secretary  General Kandi.  Padambo.

Padambo said the crowds were amazing.

“What it shows is that people are interested in UDF and they are enthusiastic about Atupele and his ideas and his vision,” he said.

A chief  from the area also spoke  and  started by congratulating the UDF leader for his appointment as  minister of  health.

He, however, asked the minister  to make  sure that  the  Domasi  hospital  which  he said has stalled is completed so that  the people from the  area  do  not  have to  go  the, General  Hospital  for  medical treatment.

It can be not all these are UDF but the fact is many of these are UDF. The good thing is that not even 1 percent of this mammoth crowd is for MCP. Can Lucius pull such a crowd? Yet he thinks he can compete with Atu at convention, zinazi kumawona abale inu. We know that the majority who are giving negative comments here are MCP who do have sleepless nights with the DPP-UDF working relationship. But let MCP know that DPP won the 2014 votes BEFORE THIS RELATIONSHIP. Even if there will be no UDF-DPP alliance in 2019 the… Read more »

Atupele’s greed has killed this once mighty party to the level of makani. We, in DPP we cerebrate the demise of this yellow party.
