Usi gets UK boost for Chilima, UTM to hit  the ground running in Malawi transformation

Social and political activist and actor  Dr Michael Usi, who is popularly known as Manganya in acting circles, has assured the United Transformation Movement (UTM) of his full support, saying he has a conviction that the fast-growing political entity is one that can bring real change in the country.

United Transformation Movement leader Saulos Chilima has arrived at Njamba Freedom Park and in the picture he is being welcomed by Michael Usi of odya zake alibe mulandu.

Usi, a development specialist who had flown back in the country from England where he went for a graduation for his doctorate degree  said on Sunday at Njamba Park in Blantyre to UTM leader and Malawi’s vice president, Saulos Chilima, that much as he is “very new” to stand before a political podium he was ready to help in whatever way.

But he warned Chilima that he should be steadfast to the promises he is now making to the people of the country who are yearning for transformation change.

“It should not be mandatory that those that are supporting you now should be the ones that should be given business contracts or jobs. That is what is killing this country,” said Usi denouncing patronage politics.

Usi, who is leader of another political network ‘Odya Zake Alibe Mulandu’, said everyone who wants to support UTM should do so from the heart.

“Don’t support Chilima because you want something in exchange. No,” he said.

He unexpectedly announced that he talked with some British leaders about UTM when he was recently in the United Kingdom for his doctorate degree graduation.

“I’ve arranged talks between them and you. You should be able to have them soon,” he said after sloganeering UTM.

Usi stressed that his support for Chilima is not conditional and that he will not be expecting to be given a position, but is keen to serve the people and help the country to have systems that are functional.

In an interview with Nyasa Times, Usi, said  while he was in England last week, he had meetings with influential personalities who have expressed interest to support the transformation agenda for Malawi.

“My professors are organising meetings with politicians, academicians and individuals who have shown interest to support Malawi to develop,” Usi told Nyasa Times.

“The main areas that have received special attention are education sector, fighting corruption, youth empowerment and emancipation of women from poverty,” he added.

Speaking at the rally, the movement’s secretary general Patricia Kaliati said, like the rest of Malawians, UTM members are disgruntled because of the poor leadership under the DPP administration.

This is not Tikufelanji, a while ago Manga started his organisation Odyazake before it even started crawling it seems its members have been told to join UTM. This demonstrated that Malawians just follow anyhow without any conviction at all. I can challenge you here that elections in 2019 will not be won by UTM, you can disagree with me, but that is a fact, for now, UTM is there to give us political entertainment.

Whilst it may true that UTM may not win next year but it certainly will shake things up and change the political platform. Parliament will never be the same; accountability will be real for once and looting will be under check for once. i don’t think MPs will be sleeping in parliament as is the case now. MPs will be forced to read the constitution and Bills in front of them. The winds of change are hitting the continent and Malawi isn’t an exception so don’t be left behind whilst you see tsunami coming your way. UTM might just in… Read more »

Manganya walankhula, wakumva amve ndipo Osamva, asamve. His proffesors are ready to meet politicians, academicians, individuals…… He might have forgotten professors. APM answers to all description by Manganya. So Manganya’s professors are coming to meet APM. I hope they are not coming for further research work.
