Mia drums support for MCP-UTM alliance in Lower Shire

BLANTYRE-(MaraviPost)—The Malawi Congress Congress Party (MCP) Lower Shire Political heavyweight Mohammed Sidik Mia has urged people in the region to vote for Lazarus Chakwera in the forthcoming fresh presidential election slated for July 2.

Mia made the appeal during his first whistle stop tour in Chikwawa district after the Supreme Court of Appeal upheld the Constitution Court ruling that nullified the May 2019 presidential poll.

He said an alliance of MCP and UTM with Lazarus Chakwera as torchbearer is the only hope for better Malawi saying the current leadership is clueless of how Malawians can be emancipated from the chains of abject poverty.

“People are eager to see change in this country. So as one of the patriotic citizens, I sacrificed my position to pave way for the combination of Chakwera and Chilima in the forthcoming election because that is the sure way of bringing change in the country.

“I am ready to work with Chakwera and Chilima to develop Malawi. I have closely known Dr Lazarus Chakwera and, believe you me, he will be the best President Malawi has ever had,” said Mia.

Mia also refuted rumours that he is joining Democratic Progressive Party (DPP).

“I am the one who facilitated the alliance because I want change. It is not only through the office of the Vice President that one can contribute to the development of the country. There are different ways of doing that.

“The combination of UTM and MCP is the only hope amid the sufferings which are a product of the DPP mediocre leadership,” he said.

According to Mia, Malawi has crashed because of the DPP mediocre leadership and that the majority of Malawians are suffering and only few people connected to power are happy because most of them have become instant billionaires posing as entrepreneurs.

He said it is high time the cartel stopped from advancing their selfish interests at the expense of the nation.

Mia is currently regarded as a political mirror and giant of lower shire.

He is heavily supported by his wife Abida Mia who is not an ordinary lady but she is also a standalone politician.

Abida is the current Member of Parliament (MP) of Chikwawa Mkombezi after defeating Peter Mutharika’s ‘good boy’ Gerald Viola.
