The UTM underestimated Luwemba and called him names when he detected last Saturday but UTM structures are crumbling in the East and Centre and he is the man behind the demolition.

On Wednesday in Liwonde the  UTM Regional Committee officials  defected to the DPP-UDF Alliance.

They came from UTM structures in Mangochi, Machinga, Balaka, Zomba and Ntcheu where party leader Saulos Chilima comes from.

The defections were announced at Zest Conference Centre in Liwonde.

Reports from Northern Region also indicate that most people are abandoning UTM and heading for the DPP.

Other reports also indicates that more high profile defections are on their way.

UTM supporters are defecting in protest because of the association with Malawi Congress Party (MCP).

According to the defectors, UTM has not joined the Tonse Alliance but it is Chilima who has joined MCP.

Meanwhile, Chilima is also being rejected by MCP diehards because they have discovered that he is driving his own personal agenda.

Chilima said in Chikwawa that he will take over MCP after 5 years, which has also created anger in the MCP quarters.

UTM was born when Chilima rebelled against President Peter Mutharika and tried to oust his mentor at the DPP Convention.

After failing to take over DPP, Chilima formed UTM and contested for the presidency in the May 2019 Elections.

Chilima’s face will not be on the ballot of the next election. The mass defections spell doom for UTM.

It’s not ROCKET SCIENCE. All groupings have SELLOUTS and these are examples of those kind of people.

Each political party in Malawi has SELLOUTS. In sociology these sort of people are called GATEKEEPERS TO SOCIAL CHANGE. They don’t contribute anything to the running of the society. Greed is TANTAMOUNT in all whatever they are doing.

GOOD RIDDANCE 🇲🇼

Kkkkk. Yes. Gatekeepers to Social Change. To them if someone gives him or her K50 they would gladly go on the podium and declare their support. Similarly, they cannot be trusted as they can again change if they are given the same K50 or just a promise of it

Northerners are not mentally sick to vote for DPP, for what goodness? Come rains or sunshine tonse alliance will win with a land slides. Malawi can’t be ruled by two families, that is impossible… DPP should not expect even a single vote from northern region ..Even Jappy will vote for Tonse Alliance.

From my understanding and observation,these people were not UTM members at all.What positions were these the so called defectors having in UTM?DPP/UDF stop fooling yourselves with these propagandas.The thing with people from the eastern region is,they are too tribalist and they take UDF as their tribal party not a national party.No wonder most of them are illiterate.

Maybe from other areas/regions. Definitely not Eastern Region since it was swallowed by DPP if the last rigged election results are anything to go by. It would be nice to know the calibre of the defectors since most people are just after zitenje or t-shirts. Check their homes and you will find Aford, MCP, PP, UTM gear.
