UTM shun Chakwera’s arrival in the north


The major alliance partner in the Tonse Alliance government, United Transformation Movement (UTM) has not erected it’s flags at Mzuzu ShopRite Roundabout in solidarity with other parties receiving president Lazarus Chakwera in Mzuzu on Tuesday.

Almost all the political parties in the Alliance have erected flags displaying their colours in support of the arrival of Chakwera in the region but there was not even a single flag for the UTM which many observers have described the north to be its stronghold.

UTM Spokesperson, Frank Tumpale Mwenefumbo could not immediately be reached for comment since all his mobile phones were out of reach.

However, some political observers described remarks made by the UTM president, Saulos Chilima on his departure for the United States as a signal that things are no longer working in a business in the usual way.

Chilima told the media that no one should hide behind Covid-19 and the war in Ukraine if both economic and infrastructure development activities are not making progress in the country.
