UTM gets ex-minister Kamangadazi, Faustus Chirwa

Veteran politician Kamangadazi Chambalo and former Peoples Party (PP) deputy publicity Secretary Faustace Chirwa have joined the UTM party ahead of the May 21 Tripartite Elections.

The two were welcomed in the party by UTM President who is also State Vice President Saulos Chilima in Dowa on  Saturday where the party was launching its manifesto and campaign for the watershed May elections.

Launch of the UTM manifesto in Dowa district

Chambalo is one of the first cabinet ministers in the first democratic government in 1994 and also served as a member of Parliament.

While Faustace Chirwa has resigned from  People’s Party (PP) as  depuy publicity secretary, a few days after the party’s leader and former president, Joyce Banda, endorsed Malawi Congress Party (MCP) presidential hopeful Dr. Lazarus Chakwera candidature.

Banda withdrew from the presidential race citing national unity above personal ambitions.

Faustace Chirwa is one of the country’s most respected women activists and politicians who was crucially instrumental in changing Malawi’s politics from one party dictatorship to multiparty democracy in the early 1990s.

The la aunch of the UTM manifesto began with calls from traditional authority Msakambewa that the party should adopt a manifesto that is going to promote health services.

MCP already got sharks from PP leaving matemba to utm. All the nyusansi or nyasi like Kabwila, Kamangadazi etc. have gone to utm. Utm tried Atupele and PP they refused. MCP got JB, Ken Kandodo, Wakuda, Halima Daudi, Gotano, Harry Mkandawire, Sosten Gwengwe, Gotani, and many many more. You have to know that Kaliati, Masangwi, Chidanti, Willet, Lucius Banda, Shanil Muluzi, Jesse Kabwila, Kalindo, etc.will not make it to parliament. Even Usi, Ngalande, Dama Phoya and others agwa.

Kodi when PP was in coalition with UTM everything was ok, PP was a good party. Now that they are with MCP zaipa?

Kaliati and Kabwila amafunsa if it’s possible to change and contest as independents 😂😂😂😂. It’s not possible, musovenge! UTM is on Facebook and not on the ground.

Dead wood joining a crop of thieves. How does Chilima feel as a human being who is being paid for doing nothing? This I corruption at its best.
Shame on those who feel the utm is a party of transformation but rather a party of thieves

Si okhawo. Alipo ambiri amene abwera ku UTM chifukwa chokwiya ndi mgwirizano wa MCP ndi PP. Miscalculated move by MCP. Accepting PP to be bedfellows has forced many followers to join UTM. kaya! Zioneke pa May 23 pano

So it is wrong for PP to join PP . When UTM and PP announced thier failed alliance you did not see it wrong.

Alipodi ambiri ena apita Ku UDF, DPP as well as UTM and some will follow JB to MCP this is expected but still MCP will get the lion’s share as those loyal to JB are many than those who pretend. As to MCP followers please don’t be fooled just go back to the previous elections and u will see how a true MCP supporter behaves.
21 May if fast approaching compare the votes Chilima will get and the patronage he has been receiving from the central region.

I think to expect all PP members to join MCP is naive to say the least. After all there is freedom of association in Malawi. Everyone is free to associate with anyone. Ochokawo akuchoka ku PP not MCP.
