UTM official defects to DPP: Chimbanga nomadic politics continues

UTM Party deputy publicity secretary Leonard Chimbanga has defected to the ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP).

Chimbanga was welcomed in the DPP fold before going UTM
When he was in UDF:Leonard Hayes Chimbanga

Chimbanga made the announcement at a political rally President Peter Mutharika held in Chiradzulu after commissioning the Mulanje-Blantyre water project.

Chimbanga is councillor for Soche east, a position he won on UTM ticket.

“Let me say it here that President Mutharika won the election. In the run up to the election, we heard from the opposition that the DPP could not rig the elections, they are amateurs so how come the same opposition is crying foul now,” said Chimbanga.

This was a direct reference to UTM president Saulos Chilima who used to tell people to go and vote enmasse assuring them that the new voting system made it impossible to rig the elections.

 There was no immediate reaction from the UTM but the DPP regional governor for the south Charles Mchacha welcomed Chimbanga and others who have defected to the party from various opposition parties.

He claimed over 700 people have defected to the ruling party.

Chimbanga has been very nomadic politician and has changed almost all major parties. This is his return to DPP the party he joined after he resigned from the political movement Transformation Alliance (TA) which was led by Moses Kunkuyu.

Before joining Kunkuyu’s group, Chimbanga contested for parliamentary seat in 2014 under United Democratic Front (UDF) ticket but did not succeed.

Kodi UTM iilipo? I thought inatha pa 23 May ? They can’t even organize a rally because anthu sabwerako.Thats why Saulosi is thinking of going back to DPP. Wait and see events unfolding soon . Ngati achedwe kulengeza zobwelera it’s because of manyazi chifukwa cha kutumbwa ankachita kuja In 2018 . Paja ankati pa 24 May anthu azikamupeza ku state house ali President. So no wonder people are leaving him and soon the party will be forgotten

Chameleon galore from UDF,DPP,UTM back to corrupt DPP. This confused man has no value system at all that’s why the political crisis will never cease til there’s a paradigm shift in Malawi’s politics. I rebuke this man & others following suit to stop the nonsense of betraying followers and reform his/ her political ideology.

We have heard from reliable source that Nchilima is planing to go to apologise to Peter like the prodigal son. A Dad muloleni mwanayo ayamba kuzimangilira. Tatopa ndi m aliro s mabwana.Asilikali a Pune kunyanyala maliro a mabwana
