Speaking about the launch, the interim spokesperson for group Phyllis Chipojola confirmed the launch of the movement. “Indeed we have launched CFT movement in diaspora .

Chipojola went on to clarify that so far CFT has endorsed grand alliance of UTM and MCP and others. “We want people to know that this is a movement, its not a political party, we are bringing together like-minded people whose motive so far is to see DPP out of power. It is for this reason that the movement is open to members of the other parties as long as their stand at the moment is to see change in Malawi”.

In welcoming the diaspora movement Timothy Mtambo, has expressed his gratitude and appreciation for those in diaspora that have so far joined the movement and adopted the transformative agenda of the people power movement.
