MZUZU—United Democratic Front 2014 presidential hopeful Atupele Muluzi says young people in the country must join mainstream politics to turn bring about meaningful change.
“We need new thinking, new ideas, new ways of doing things. My appeal to young people including those in Diaspora is that they should come back home and help build their country,” said Muluzi, 35, who would become the youngest person to lead the country if he won the presidency in next year’s elections.
Muluzi, whose father Bakili was the country’s president from 1994 to 2004, said young people would be coming out to support his candidacy.
"As young people we shouldn’t accept the current situation. We must change this. This is why I'm championing the New Agenda for Change to bring new thinking to the way of doing things," he said.
He told the rally that his party will be soliciting views from all stakeholders for the party's new manifesto.
