UDF appoints Dr Yusuf Mwawa as acting spokesman

United Democratic Front (UDF) has appointed former minister of education Dr Yusuf Mwawa as the party’s acting National Publicity Secretary.

Dr Yusuf Mwawa ( C) is acting UDF spokesperson

UDF secretary general Kandi Padambo made the announcement on Thursday , saying the appointment of Mwawa has been approved by party leader Atupele Muluzi.

“This follows the regrettable circumstances involving the arrest and subsequent charging of Ken Ndanga,” reads the statement in part.

Padambo further said Mwawa who is substantively the party’s National Director of Research will exercise the duties and responsibilities of the office of National Publicity Secretary until the judicial conclusion of the matter in which Ndanga is suspected to have been involved.

Ndanga is being charged with murder for his alleged involvement of  torching UTM Party offices in Lilongwe which resulted in the death of three family members.

Selemani Tambala, a guard at the UTM offices, his wife Ayiles and son Shukuran were living in the office backyard and they died several days later at Kamuzu Central Hospital from severe burns arson attack.

Ndanga’s case was committed to the High Court. He is yet to take plea or comment on the charges.

Yusuf you have made a huge blunder. UDF is past it ‘Sell By Date’. King Bakili Muluzi and Prince Atupele are heading to prison, as King Muluzi has corruptly looted public funds from 1994 to 2004,

Who can trust this hypocrit? He lost his job as a minister and leader in the house under Bingu, because he used public money to pay for his own wedding reception at Mount Soche Hotel. In fact he declared it as a workshop of his Ministry and paid with a government check! What a blessing for the wedding, himself, his wife and for his family?! –
At least UDF has mercy with you!

For young ones who were not there. Yusuk Mwawa had stolen K165,000.00 from Malawians (Malawi Government) for his wedding with a second wife. He was arrested, tried and imprisoned with hardest labour. He will now be speaking for UDF. This is called recycled politics.
