UTM  special team on alliance with MCP meets Monday

UTM Party national executive committee special team mandated to look into if there is need for the party to form an alliance with the Malawi Congress Party (MCP) meets Monday in Lilongwe.

Kaliati: UTM team leader

UTM secretary general Patricia Kaliati is leading the team which is expected to scrutinize offers from the MCP on the possibility of the alliance which has sharply divided opinion in both the UTM and MCP.

The team is expected to examine what the MCP has put on table for the alliance, which include the presidential candidate in the forthcoming presidential election after the MCP proposed that Dr Lazarus Chakwera be the torch bearer in the election with Dr Saulos Chilima as running mate.

Others issues will include the sharing of the cabinet portfolios and other government positions as well as how the two parties manifestos can be put together.

Some of the members in the committee include party spokesperson Dr Joseph Chidanti Malunga, party director of strategic planning Norman Nyirenda, member Willet Kalonga among others.

Chilima said at a recent rally in Lilongwe that the alliance should not be about removing somebody from power and putting somebody in power but must offer the best for Malawi.

You think you could have done such meetings way back – and I wonder why this is becoming a big issue to solve – if you were able to be successfull on the court issue why then is it difficult to come up with the tangible solution now???????? You know what people will start concluding that you ALL power hungry LEADERS shame on you. You should know that time is ticking out and soon find your pants down when your friends are already dressed kkkkk!!!!!!! I wish you all the best byeeeeeee!!!!!!!!!!

Madam Kaliati is too compromised and unbalanced to lead the UTM team on this strategic issue,Chilima should have done better on the choice of the team.

I have my doubts too- what did Norman say recently about MCP …Chidanti is a Scholar …That makes him somehow Rational ….He can analyse and make decisions based on Data not Emotions .But what all of them must be asking them is …? Are Our Visions for Malawi so irreconcilable ….? MCP has always been about -Food on the table (Agriculture) ,House that does not leak ( infrastructure),Good Clothes (Household Income) and Money in the Pocket (Disposable Income)….Those are the basics HKB preached and the MCP still stands for ….In there any Vision which is not Covering these ….?
