Former deputy minister joins MCP

142

Tarcizio Yetala who served as deputy minister under United Democratic Front (UDF) government has joined opposition Malawi Congress Party (MCP).

Speaking in an interview, Yetala said he was born MCP and will die MCP, a party he represented in the 2004 elections as a platform for launching his political career.

MCP gaining popularity: Tarcizio Yetala has joined the party.(File)

Yetala said he has not joined the MCP to compete during the party’s primary elections but to become its member so that he can stand with the people of Dowa South East whom he said have not seen tangible development since he was ousted from power as a Member of Parliament.

“People of Dowa South East cannot forget what the UDF under Dr. Bakili Muluzi did in the area such as construction of Byanzi secondary school, boreholes and the magnificent house of Chief Mkukula matching with houses of Area 10, Lilongwe and many others,” he said.

Yetala, who served as deputy minister for commerce and industry as well as deputy minister of local government in the UDF led government of Dr. Muluzi, said he feels pain to see that government is failing to build a new Dowa District Hospital to replace the old one built in 1931.

He said he felt sorry after he got the news that the Dowa District Hospital was closed by the Medical Council of Malawi two months ago due to poor sanitation at the health facility.

The former deputy cabinet minister said he has also become an MCP member in order to oppose and criticise this present government of which his former party the UDF is part and parcel.

He assured people in the district that even though he is becoming MCP, he cannot castigate the UDF and Dr. Bakili Muluzi because all the tangible development projects in Mkukula area, were initiated by him with Dr. Muluzi as Head of State saying the demand by the people to see him in the opposition MCP cannot be ignored.

Yetala also revealed that he is ready to work with MPs, chiefs and councillors as long as they have a vision of developing the district from abstract poverty to prosperity since time of politics are over.

  1. WHAT YETALA IS COMMENTING ON THE CLOSURE OF DOWA DISTRICT HOSPITAL IS TRUE AND WE SHARE THE PAIN MORE IMPORTANTLY WHEN YOU CONSIDER HALIMA DAUD THAT SHE WAS ONCE DEPUTY FOR HEALTH.
    TODAY SHE IS COMING AGAIN AS SHADOW MP FOR DOWA SOUTH EAST.WHY ? IS SHE TAKING PEOPLE FOR A FOOL OR WHAT? THIS WOMAN OFFERED NOTHING APART FROM GETTING PEOPLE ARRESTED AND DIVIDING T/A MKUKULAS CHIEFTANCY.

  2. You see what Malawi 24, whenever such names appear again on political arena my medulla oblongata ceases functioning. Yes, Yetala has rights intact but he is also infringing other peoples rights as well. His entry again into political atmosphere is providing an environment which is not conducive enough for upcomings. Let him roost amicably. We don’t miss his services. We want new blood with visionary articulated ideologies. That’s how MCP have chosen to lose in 2019.

  4. Yetala used to tell electorates that he became mp because his parents sent him to xool not because of them. Thats why he lost his next election. He is foul-mouthed

    1.The bus has nocked out
    2.The driver is carelesness
    3.The bus has completed its root
    4.Shortage of security and incomfortable fillings.
    The charecteristics above can exist in udf.If the former had wisdom he could have built it rather than dumping hence the fear that he can also dump mcp is 100% right.cyclic polititians.

    • MCP had all the time in 31yrs why didn’t they develop or make Malawi abetter place to stay then they want to make it now ? Nonsense no one can ever put MCP in power again I mean if MCP can win which party can be the best opposition?asa sitingailande udindo wotsusa boma MCP is the best opposition phwaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

    • If M C P Winning 2019 Election, This Means That Opposition Will Be Very Weak Because All Those People In D P P Are Opportunists They Are Not Strong As M C P Members Are

    • but do u really know how MCP humiliated Malawians or ur grandma or grandfather were humiliators so u did feel the pain that others felt and it still pains up to now …..
