The statement says that alliance partners renewed their commitment to the alliance by upholding and and abiding by the alliance and continuing to work together for the good of Malawians.
Chibambo also says that the alliance partners will intensify their periodic meetings with immediate effect “do their utmost to safeguard the alliance by promoting and undertaking all necessary actions interventions for strengthening the bond of cooperation between and among them”.
One leader of the alliance partner who asked not to be named said the alliance was falling apart and thanked President Chakwera for timely calling for the meeting which, he said, has managed to make the alliance intact, saying President Chakwera has shown wise and mature leadership.
