UTM spokesperson Felix Njawala confirmed that this upcoming meeting will mark the first formal gathering of party officials since the untimely demise of Saulos Chilima. Among the primary agenda items will be discussions on the future direction of the party in light of this significant leadership transition.

“In addition to reflecting on the loss of our beloved leader, we will be deliberating on various matters crucial to the party’s continuity and effectiveness,” stated Njawala.

Key among the topics to be addressed is the preparation for the party’s upcoming general assembly, which holds pivotal importance for the UTM’s organizational structure and strategy moving forward.

To ensure preparedness and alignment ahead of Friday’s meeting, the party’s Secretary General, Patricia Kaliati, is scheduled to convene with the Deputy Leader, Michael Usi, today. This preparatory session aims to synchronize their perspectives on key issues that will be tabled during the broader gathering of UTM officials.
