If this is meant to prepare for 2025, then UTM is clutching the straws. You mean the UTM top brass agreed to this arrangement?

Why are all 3 newly appointed officials from one region. Whats going on in UTM? The momentum in this party is fading and dying! Zikuyenda koma?

Ginimbi, the illuminate, the likes of Bushiri

Pocket mini-political parties picking leaders streetwise, no convention, no competition, tizipani ta m’thumba!!

Sorry Mr Chilima and UTM, taking on board one of the most nomadic politician in our country and giving him even the Mic to speak for you, is to my opinion a shot in your foot! Today he talks this on behalf of…, tomorrow that on sombody else’s. This can not be translated in consistency and reliability! Let’s hope Frank will become a liability to you and UTM! Roaming guys like him, others call this political prostitution are mostly out for greener pastures with a selfish motivation! He clearly belongs to this group of recycled politician who haven’t helped us… Read more »

Chilima instead of helping the failing Chakwela to run the affairs of government, you are busy organising your party. As Chakwela is failing, you are also failing, and the nine parties are also failing. The nine parties are just quite as if things are moving for Malawians. We do not need motivational talks now, we need actions of what you promised.

This is a dying party as the court barred Chilima to standard in 2025.

The moment to pacify the maverick guy is to place a microphone into his mouth he will go quiet he won’t be fighting for space within Malawi since he has been given a responsibility that makes him conspicuous. He’ll be gunning the UTM pieces of information he is an articulate guy. He does his homework well as shown during the 2019 presidential campaign his outlines of policy framework were premised on thorough preparation unlike Baby Muluzi who frothed at the mention of Chilima. The appointment fits the nomadic politician.
