UTM Condemns political violence
By Horace Tebulo.
United Transformation Movement (UTM) has said incidents of political violences currently reported in some parts of the country can end if the ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) is voted out of power.
UTM Publicity Secretary Chidanti Malunga said this in Dedza on the sidelines of a whistle stop tour state vice President Dr Saulos Claus Chilima who is also running mate of the Tonse Alliance in the Fresh Presidential elections conducted in Ntcheu, Dedza and Lilongwe districts on Friday.
Malunga expressd worry to note that the country continues registering cases of violences that are ‘fueled’ by people who he described as selfish leaders.
“It is sad that today (15 May, 2020) Malawi has lost a man who together with his family members were severely burnt in one of our offices in Lilongwe, this is not the democracy that we wanted in 1993,” Malunga lamented.
He then urged people in the country to vote for Dr Lazarus Chakwera who is torch bearer of the Tonse Alliance in the forth coming polls if the country is to experience real change.
“Malawians need change and that can only happen if Dr Chakwera takes over as president of the country. My message therefore is, Malawians should go out in their large numbers and vote for our alliance,” said Malunga.
Malunga’s sentiments come following a series of attacks the country has registered ahead of the disputed fresh presidential elections that the Constitutional court ordered to be conducted within 150 days from 3 February 2020.
