President Peter Mutharika on Wednesday stopped in Ntcheu where he urged voters to ignore Vice President Saulos Chilima’s United Transformation Movement (UTM).
Mutharika said the movement has no agenda and capacity to develop the country.
Chilima dumped Mutharika’s Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) to form UTM saying he will root out rampant corruption, create a million jobs and transform Malawi if elected in the 2019 elections.
But speaking at Ntcheu old bus depot during a whistle stop tour on Wednesday, Mutharika said it is only the DPP which has the welfare of Malawians at heart.
The president claimed Malawians are already enjoying under his administration and they should vote for the DPP next year for the development projects to continue.
“DPP government is the only party that has the welfare of people at heart. Our party prioritizes issues to do with welfare of the people because we care. That is why I urge you the people of Ntcheu to continue supporting DPP so that we continue with development projects that will improve your lives,” said Mutharika.
