Tonse Alliance reiterates its promise of an inclusive Malawi government

Tonse Alliance, which comprises nine political parties led by the Malawi Congress Party (MCP) and UTM party, has reiterated its commitment to deliver an all-inclusive government to Malawians replete with intelligence, skills and expertise to deliver what it promised during the campaign.

UTM’s Chidanti Malunga and MCP’s Ezekiel Ching’oma

MCP Publicity Secretary Reverend Maurice Munthali and his UTM counterpart, Dr. Joseph Chidanti Malunga, assured that their government will bring development to every corner of the country without regard to tribe, gender, religion, race, ability or nay other demographic distinction.

Munthali and Malunga are making these assurances in a statement they have issued a short while ago in reaction to the outcome of the fresh presidential election, which was held on Tuesday, June 23 2020.

“With all votes from yesterday’s presidential election tallied, it is now clear that Malawians have resoundingly given Tonse Alliance the mandate to govern this country for the next five years, at least. Over a year after being robbed of the victory that they deserved in the May 2019 Tripartite Elections, Malawians have, at least, reclaimed their destiny in a poll that was ordered by the country’s courts, following the dogged resolve of Dr. Lazarus McCarthy Chakwera and Dr. Saulos Klaus Chilima to fight for electoral justice,” part of the statement reads.

Munthali and Malunga, who assure that the Tonse Alliance will not vent retribution on those who did not vote for them, admit that the Tuesday’s election was more than a mere competition as it was also a fight between contrasting values.

Munthali and Malunga emphasize that by voting for the Tonse Alliance, Malawians had chosen to get rid of a status quo of unguarded lawlessness, social and economic stagnation, corruption and tribalism that characterized the Peter Mutharika’s administration.

“Malawians have chosen for themselves a future characterized by visionary leadership, economic prosperity and national unity. The results show that they have chosen the hope and progress that Tonse Alliance represents. They sent out the same message last year, but forces of darkness conspired to stifle this voice with the support of a complicit Electoral Commission,” it adds.

Munthali and Malunga further state that their triumph in the just-ended poll heralds a new Malawi that is for all and ‘we will waste no time in starting to deliver on all our promises’.

They urge Malawians to spare a ward of gratitude to the lawyers and Chakwera and Chilima who sought justice from the courts.

“We cannot forget the role of the civil society, most of the media and the Malawi Defence Force in standing together with Malawians, not only in the fight for electoral justice, but also in the preparations and overall conduct of the fresh presidential election. At the same time, we would like to congratulate Dr. Chifundo Kachale and his fellow commissioners for pulling off a free, fair and credible election against all odds in record time. This is another successful story that reinforces our belief that despite our current problems, there is a lot of goodwill that we can build upon in taking this country forward,” Malunga and Munthali say.

My plea to Chakwera-Chilima and Tonse alliance is not to prioritize freebies because you need to create an economy that can create the wealth to be distributed as freebies! If you improve the economy enough everyone will be able to earn his/her own wealth and you can focus on infrastructural projects that everyone can benefit from!! If you prioritized freebies in your manifestos tell your most ardent supporters and the country the present state of the economy can not support that (they will surely understand although it was imprudent on your part to prioritize freebies!). Financial prudence (with hard-earned tax-payers… Read more »

Kkkkk Jasper, what’s in your mind? No dirty & rotten mind/ opinion here, take note this is a new government & it needs people like you to bring your views not fighting. This is not the same Malawi 5 days past we need to change our mind set, love one another, let north, central & South be our homes & whoever is there is not a tumbuka, chewa/lomwe or yao, see your fellow Malawian(no tribalism). If you say youre tired of whatever you name it, this tells more of your identity. Sorry to say this, I suggest you need guidance,… Read more »

My view is please define inclusive government. If you see clearly some institutions have a certain group of people more than others even under the fallen DDP govt. l am not taking sides here. So that’s why l am saying define inclusive. Otherwise, inclusive would mean sharing mipando yonona for this incoming govt. Period. I don’t like people who always shift goal posts now and again. It shows lack of sense of direction. Dzana tinali DPP, dzulo tinali UTM. Lero ndi Tonse Alliance. Bola ku support Mbakuwaku at least he is stable and stands for something.

The point is they should define what inclusive means. Because as it stands to me it means kugawana mipando yonona. Believe you me they will never chose anyone from another grouping to be amongst them. One thing you have to know is that even under DPP. They were other groups of people who have dominated certain sections of government who are not even Lhomwe. If you want to know my identity l come from Lilongwe but l do not like to mention issues to do with my tribe/discrimination because l consider myself a free citizen of the world. Now it… Read more »

Wishing you guys all the best and may God bless you and Malawi. However nine parties in a government has me worried because you don’t share the same Vision. The only thing that was common was to get rid of the DPP. Now that it’s gone I pray we do not see a repeat of ” animal farm”

Yes, yes, yes indeed! And the fact of the matter is that DPP never won any election since the death of Bingu. In 2014 they lost badly too. However, Mbendera accepted bribes and with intimidations he gave in – to the DPP corrupt demands. Afterwards he ended up crying profusely in shame for what he had done. In 2019 we all saw the same evil vices repeating themselves, only to be challenged and crushed dramatically.

One thing coming out is that the vote of 21 may might not have been robbed. What dpp has gotten in the rerun or fpe is close to what they got and the sum of utm and mcp in the fpe reflects what they got individually last time. Only that in the case, dpp had very stupid and poor lawyers not in the mould of dr chikosa n co.

An inclusive government that does not look at the person’s tribe but pure merit can make this alliance rule for many years to come. People are really tired of corruption and tribalism in Malawi. Excellent message. Keep it up.

Tonse Alliance should also investigate how Covid 19 Funds has been used. Also check Government ‘s paying IFIMS system.
