UTM South launch moved to Sunday at Njamba Freedom Park

Vice-President Saulosi Chilima launch of  his United Transformation Movement (UTM)  in the southern region has been moved from Saturday to Sunday in Blantyre  with change of venue as well from Nyambadwe Ground to Njamba Freedom Park.

Chilima and Masangwi: UTM on the move

UTM national organising chairperson Noel Masangwi said in a statement made available to Nyasa Times that the change  was necessitated after organisers relaised  that Nyambadwe Ground is too small for their mass rally.

Masangwi said the movement has received an overwhelming support since its launch at  Masintha ground in Lilongwe.

He said they have seen an upsurge of membership since the launch.

Meanwhile, UTM spokesman Joseph Chidanti Malunga has said Chilima is demonstrating his fresh approach to politics as demonstrated by his  12-point plan the movement will implement once elected as President in next year’s elections.

“The country wants a change in the type of politics in this country and politicians who can really provide the solutions to the challenges the country now faces. Chilima is the hope for a better Malawi,” he said.

“It’s time for change. It’s time for UTM,” said Masangwi.

After launch in the South, the movement  is also expected to hold a regional launch in the Northern region on August 4 in Mzuzu.

The maiden Masintha rally witnessed a large number of young people gracing the launch, with a mixture of political colours, including Newton Kambala’s United Transformation Party which has joined the movement and Manganya’s [Michael Usi] Wodya Zake Alibe Mlandu.

Chilima is to DPP what Malema is to ANC. Come 2019 he will be on opposition benches. You are going to hate me for telling you this but that is just a fact.

Your rallies are sweeter than world cup. Please organisers ensure that there’s a continued full coverage on live streaming channels, for the benefit of those of us who are in the diaspora.

Kudos to organisers of the Masintha Grounds event. You displayed an excellent professional organisational skill.

I would like to agree with a political analyst on MIJ this morning who said UTM is a vengece Movement. There are number of questions to be asked about Chilima’s Movement; He refused to receive a petition from CSOs on corruption. He is a VP and has all powers through the constitution to address corruption and nepotism. He is part of DPP Government In France Emmanuel Macron’s bodyguard was dismissed and is being tried in court for participation in demostration. Chilima guard Kuchingale did the same in MC by election. Chilima did nothing. Where are his values It has being… Read more »

The difference between France and Malawi is clear, brother you are talking about developed countries. In France you can criticise nothing will happen. In Malawi the president is the boss. By the way I live in France. Guys support this guy because you can’t have the president shielding Chaponda. It’s bad.

Frazer, Chilima shielded Chaponda too by him being silent. The problem with Malawi is that we don’t have any values in our political system. Chilima is corrupt – he sold his house to a cashgater, he is surrounded by corrupt people so how can he fight corruption.
