New Political Party in Malawi: Kunkuyu back with Transformation Alliance
Former People’s Party (PP) member Moses Kunkuyu has rejoined the country’s political atmosphere with a move to ‘change’ the nation through a new party called Transformation Alliance (TA)
Speaking to members of the press on Wednesday, Kunkuyu disclosed that the alliance will strive to make a change in the country’s political atmosphere by urging the youths to take leadership roles.
Kunkuyu added that the Alliance will among other things put to an end “politics of vengeance” in the country arguing that retribution is one of the reasons that are keeping Malawi poor.
In an interview with Malawi24, Kunkuyu said the alliance is set to address challenges that have rocked the country by offering the youths a chance to play a part on the country’s political scene.
“We need to change our mindset in country, whenever we see our youths we take them as tools to worship leaders with no future, today they are painted blue paint, tomorrow yellow, the other day orange and we don’t know what they will turn into.
“So we are to nurture these youths to be good leaders of Malawi because we are having accidental leaders that they don’t know that they must save people in the country,” said Kunkuyu.
He also argued that the youths have “divorced dreams” of becoming reliable citizens of the country due to economic and political hitches in Malawi.
The alliance is yet to hold a convention to check its readiness to participate in the 2019 General Elections under the youth drive.
