UTM National Executive Committee member, Dr. Jessie Kabwila, has called on Malawians to vote out the Democratic Progressive Party ( DPP) on May, 21, saying people in the country have suffered a lot under its rule.
Dr. Kabwila made the call in Area 25 Lilongwe on Tuesday in the absence of the UTM presidential candidate, Right Honourable Dr. Saulos Klaus Chilima, who failed to come and address the people as darkness fell.
She said the May 21 vote is of no mercy to the DPP led government which has proved to be a failure in governance issues hence Dr. Chilima is the rightful candidate to clear out the mess in government and make Malawi a better place for all and not for one region or tribe.
Speaking to the people who did not want to leave the venue without seeing Chilima, Kabwila described Chilima as a presidential candidate who has demonstrated that he has the welfare of women at heart as evidenced by his strong interest of seeing more women participating in politics and decision making positions.
She asked all the youth in the country to rally behind Dr. Chilima as he is ready to create one million jobs and has on the table Mk40 billion youth loan scheme which will make them be able to support themselves and their families.
Kabwila pleaded with MCP supporters particularly the youth to stop politics of black cock inheritance – that their fathers and mothers were diehard members of the party and they are following their parents’ footsteps by belonging to the MCP – saying the country awaits them to change the mindset of their fathers in politics.
Kabwila also urged MCP supporters who are not happy with MCP/ PP alliance to leave the party now and follow the direction of where many people are setting their eyes, that come May, 21, the UTM will form the next government.
She said MCP run the country and the people themselves who were tired of its rule voted it out of government and there’s no need for it to return to government.
She added that the DPP should also prepare itself by packing up to leave government on May 21 saying time has now come for Chilima, who will transform this country.
