“UTM is a big party with a lot of followers and it can’t form go into coalition with any party without consulting supporters,” said UTM Senior official
On Sunday, UTM’s Director of Strategic Planning Norman Nyirenda said the party cannot associate with a blood party (MCP).
Nyirenda also reminded Malawians on how MCP machinery managed to burn the whole Moto Village in Mangochi district and killed people in the country,
“MCP killed many people in the country during their 31 years old rule and they are ready to kill even more if we give them power to govern us again,” said Nyirenda while calling for Malawians not to vote for MCP again.
UTM’s Chief Strategist Nyirenda further said MCP is the most tribalistic Party in the country.
“MCP will never change it is the most tribalistic party in the country. It favors people from the central region thus why you will not find MCP members in other regions,” said Nyirenda.
