UTM running mate Michael Bisiwiki Usi has said one tribe dominates in government sectors, something which UTM will change.
Usi made his comment without hitting the nail on the head in Chitipa district during a whistle stop tour on Thursday 28th March, 2019 saying he has never thought of ruining anyone’s life in account of his or her tribe of origin.
The remarks were made in his line of ending quota system of education which was established some years ago under the regime of the late Bingu wa Mutharika.
USI said the system is heavily affecting the right to equal access to education in public universities for people from the northern land of this nation.
“I have attended greater part of my education with northerners, they never disturbed me, and government is full of ignorant people of one tribe just because Tumbukas are being sidelined through quota system. I have grown up with people of different origins despite coming from Mulanje,” Usi quashed.
He (Usi) however urged people to end the tie with the current ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP), saying the party has done nothing other than swindling money from poor citizens of this nation through taxes.
In his agreement to the statement by Usi, aspiring Member of Parliament for Chitipa Central Constituency who was the Principal registrar of University of Livingstonia Dr Moses Mlenga said poor education standards in the country hooked his mind to join politics.
“I was not planning to join politics in my life, but poor educational standard in nation made to join politics, given chance, it is my hope together with UTM to uplift educational standard in this country,” said Mlenga.
During the rally, Usi also openly declared that he is not a Malawian, saying his mother’s homeland is Zimbabwe and he has been raised up in Ndebele tradition. Per tradition in southern part of Malawi, a children’s home is where a mother is coming from.
