Malawi Congress Party (MCP) campaign director Moses Kunkuyu has claimed that the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) planned the formation of UTM to take away votes from MCP.
He made the claim on Sunday at Chibavi school ground where the Malawi Congress Party conducted a youth rally.
Kunkuyu said DPP and UTM are not divided as they claim and wondered why President Peter Mutharika and Vice President Saulos Chilima are fighting when they are both in government.
“These guys know that, their day are numbered and they are just one, don’t trust them, we are tired,” he said.
Kunkuyu then urged people in the Northern Region to vote for MCP and its leader Lazarus Chakwera in next year’s presidential election who is promising a better Malawi for all and Malawians.
“Dr. Chakwera is ready to govern this country as he knows the problems [Malawians are facing] having spoken about the same in and outside parliament for 4 years and he sent me to assure you of this,” Kunkuyu said.
During his speech, Kunkuyu also condemned the quota system of selecting students to public universities saying it is affecting people from the Northern region who depend on education.
He assured the people that MCP will abolish the system during the first parliamentary sitting after the 2019 polls.
He said: “This system is denying Malawians from the North an opportunity to develop, MCP will end all these. Being from the North has not to be a burden.”
