UTM has been holding major rallies with Vice-President Saulos Klaus Chilima (SKC) as main speaker. But at weekend, the movement front-line troops conducted meetings  which attracted crowds without SKC.

In Blantyre, Dr Michael Usi of the Wodya Zake Alibe Mlandu  drummed up support for Chilima and UTM, urging Malawians to give the movement a chance  to govern the country.

Usi  said UTM is a diverse movement that are the heart and soul of Malawi that wants the nation to fullfil people’s potential.

“UTM aims to make Malawi a home for all people living in Malawi,” said Usi.

He urged people to join UTM “to serve Malawians and not to demand positions.”

Usi also said  poor governance characterised by poor positioning of human capital who usually lack ethical qualifications and professional as well as academic is one of the reasons why Malawi is poor.

He  said people should rally behind Chilima, said he has a

vision of unity and transformation agenda that will guarantee a free, equitable, stable, inclusive and prosperous Malawi.

Speaking at the same rally, former parliamentarian for Blantyre Kabula, Felix Njawala, who is aspiring to  unseat incumbent Rashy Gaffar of ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP), asked the people to actively participate in UTM affairs and that the youth should  refuse to be abused by DPP.

In another rally in Chiradzulu , UTM national chairman  Noel Masangwi and director of security Lewis Ngalande addressed a rally.

Masangwi  said Chilima has “new ideas and vision” to govern Malawi.

On his part, Ngalande said Chilima “has what it takes” to transform Malawi.

In Mulanje South East, aspiring legislator Mrs Christine Majavina Chilemba  urged people in the area to back  the comparatively youthful and energetic Chilima, 45.

Meanwhile, UTM secretary general Patricia Kaliati has said during its four-month existence, the movement has established structures in every district nationwide.

She said the movement currently has 205 shadow members of Parliament, adding that soon it will be registered as a political party.

UTM has announced that it will hold its convention on November 9 at a venue to be communicated later.

The one;y was UTM would win is if a significant number of pro-UTM youths register and go to vote otherwise DPP will be back in power for another 5 year mandate. The politics of Malawi will only change with the emergence of new voting youths which I believe can sway the course of politics. UTM cannot rely on the old voters to cast their votes in their favour…..never. The old generation voters are so used to hardships and kunzuzika that we are too blind to see anything new. You can’t teach an old dog new political tricks; they will go… Read more »

The future of the Malawi nation belongs to the youth of today. The current political leadership and past leadership have failed to solve social and economic issues in Malawi. Because the current and past leadership have been irrelevant and failed to recognise the needs of the people. They have exploited the majority poor men and women by making them depend on hand outs like fertilizer and maize and seeds.You can’t run a government by manipulating the poor every year to live on party and government donations. This kind of politics should stop next year because the people of Malawi should… Read more »

If you are 50 and below but still think of voting for an 80 year old or be your President, think again my brother/sister

I am below 40 and will vote for 80-year old because I admire the wealth of experience and wisdom the elderly have but also respect them. My Grandmother is 86 years and she is far much intelligent and hard-working than the average 30-40 year old.
