LILONGWE-(MaraviPost)-Over hundred Opposition Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) and United Democratic Front (UDF)’s members in Lilongwe City South-West Constituency on Tuesday, October 13, 2020 defected to UTM party of Tonse Alliance.

The defectors expressed sadness over leadership crisis in DPP and UDF arguing that there was no future in the two parties.

“We decided to be part of Tonse government through UTM which has true vision for this nation. Saulos Chilima has the heart for unprivileged hence joining UTM than any party in the alliance,” says Mayi Hajila, one of the defectors from UDF.

UTM senior member Dr. Jessie Kabwila alongside the constituency governor Francis Selemani welcomed the defectors into the party at Area 22’s offices where unknown thugs petrol-bombed.

Kabwila, former lawmaker for Salima North-West constituency dressed the new members with UTM cloths with the call to help the party growing for the next elections.

“The race starts now for the next general elections. UTM wants committed members that can stand in all bad times. Therefore support the Tonse government where our leader Chilima is also state vice President,” urges Kabwila.
