Mikaya said he will ensure that the party advances issue-based politics in the region.

“My motto has always been forward ever backward never. We don’t want politics of castigation. We as a party have an agenda and every time we are at a rally, we must stick to that agenda,” he said.

The elections were presided over by treasurer general Richard Makondi, NEC member George Saonda, director of security and youth Lewis Ngalande

The elections were also held in the Northern Region where Mzuzu City Member of Parliament (MP) Leonard Njikho was elected regional governor for the North.

Njikho defeated Afiki Mbewe who was acting regional governor  with 68 vites against 47 from 115 delegates..

“I will work with the outgoing team as they did a good job to establish structuresa in the region and wooing and wooing people to join the party,” he said.

Njikho committed to work to ensure that the party penetrates the grassroots in all districts in the North.

In the Central Region, Nyasa Times understand that among those elected was Elsie Mituka, wife to retired  military Major General Cosgrove Mituka,  as regional director for women.

UTM interim spokesperson Joseph Chidanti Malunga promise to give names of all elected.

Malunga said members elected in regions will be the “delegates that will elect members of NEC in December.”

The whole mupoto cannot be represented by 115 Tumbukas and out of these handful, 68 of them chose a governor for the whole region…saaa!

Sometimes it’s good to takes classes on basics for essential subjects like statistics. You’ll understand how sampling is done before you make comments

Also good to take classes on the basics of not writing broken English rather than kuthawira pa windo. What is the meaning of ……”good to takes classes……”

A sane person with sound deduction ability would calculate that this was a typo because of the series of S’s in the sentence. But my advice still stands: enroll for STAT 101

A very foolish person will defend broken English but I will not be labor this fact. Did you not understand from your Std. 1 teacher on the importance of editing your text before submission? Further foolishness is displayed by insisting on a superficial representativeness of 115 tumbukas in choosing a regional governor for an entire region. What was the sampling regime? What formula was used to determine that n = 115 was the correct sample size? If you are unable to respond to these basic sample size determination questions, simply pick your ass and go to repeat your STAT 101.

Malawians, lets love our country. It looked like we live in denial that Malawi is our country and DPP has messed it up. DPP is stealing willy nilly. UTM is the only hope for Malawians and lets support them.
