Kabwila recently ditched opposition Malawi Congress Party (MCP) where she was once the party’s publicity secretary to join UTM where she won the last week’s primaries unopposed.
Speaking with her unmistakable charisma, Kabwila said she felt home being at UTM and pledged to help the party take over the next government.
“People know me as ‘the machine’ here because of the hard work for my people. I am still ‘the machine’ and I will never get intimidated. I will remain the machine. People here are always against anyone who is against Jessie.
“Mr President your message is the hope to the Malawian people. You’ve shown that you are development conscious, and are willing to support anyone who is willing to share your dreams of transforming this nation. Therefore, my constituency is ready to give you a victorious presidential vote,” Kabwilabragged amid shouts of agreement.
Speaking earlier, Speaker of Parliament, Richard Msowoya, described Kabwila as one of the legislators in the House that contribute to intelligent debate.
Msowoya, who was also MCP, asked the people of Salima to support Chilima like other regions.
“Actually, parliament would be lukewarm without her. For example, people from the whole northern region have already rallied behind UTM,” said Msowoya.
