Led by UTM Secretary General Patricia Kaliati and Publicity Secretary Joseph Chidanti Malunga and other party officials, the group visited flood victims and also inspected the damaged Chidzanja Bridge in Lilongwe which was damaged by rains a few days ago.

“We decided to visit and console our brothers and sisters because of what has befallen them, this is not politics, if it were politics, we would have called our members and give them relief items, but we are giving each and everyone because we are all Malawians,” said Chidanti.

“We know that maybe government would have been the first to come here through the disaster department but we thought it wise to come and console them, yes we cannot give them everything that they need but we believe that by being together even words of comfort help in lessening the pain,” added Chidanti.

He also said there is need to protect river banks to avoid floods.

“We need to manage the river banks so that we avoid these flash floods,” said Chidanti.

A beneficiary of the relief items Esther Chipoja who had her three houses damaged because of the flash floods thanked UTM for coming to their rescue.

“We thank the UTM party for giving us the items, they will go a long way to alleviate the problems that we have because of the floods,” said Chipoja.

She asked government to construct a proper bridge with proper drainage to avoid the floods.

Let me congratulate UTM for this gesture of love and compassion to people who have been befallen by this tragedy. I think that all political and non-political organizations need to hold hands to support those facing tragedies like this one. I personally believe that there is no government in the world that takes care of all needs that people have. Citizen participation is very critical. A small ADVICE to UTM communication/ Marketing Team(?): There is, in communication, what is called ‘NOISE’. The meaning for this word in communication circles is slightly different from how it is used in our day… Read more »

YOU FOOLS,this is not politics but rather PATRIOTISM(love for the people of our country) It is unlike Muthalika who told his voters in Mulanje to eat RATS AND GRASSHOPPERS when they were exposed to hunger and shortage of food.The action taken by UTM TO HELP OUR PEOPLE,is pure nationalism that the people of Malawi support.We Malawians in diaspora strongly support the actions taken by the UTM ,the beloved party of our nation.The fact of the matter is that,Muthalika and DPP do not care about the suffering masses of our people,to them DPP is the PARTY of death and corruption whose… Read more »

kkkkk ‘This is not political’ and yet they wore party colours!!!
A Kaliati, its political otherwise you would have dressed like Dausi when he visited victims of road accident in casual wear.
And what are the camera men doing, how did they know you will be going to make the donation? Its political.

I thought she ridiculed the same people ali ku Salima saying kuti nyumba zawo zangwa ndi mvula ya chizalupsa. Wasn’t that sufficient insult to the people?

If it’s not politics why were you in party colors. You think people are stupid. You are looking for votes basi.

Boy! Does a picture tell a thousand words? Ever? Just look again at Kabwira and Kaliati. Their body language tells all: Akwiya (the are sulking) as if they are fporce to be on the same “stage”. And, they are looking in different directions, and obviously, they can’t stand each other. We knew that already “yesterday”. (Most “marriages” of convenience – and the whole UTM bus is occupied by very disparate people indeed – often do not have records of success! And this one may NOT end well!) The only reason Kaliati and kabwila can physically be so close to each… Read more »
