MCP And UTM Supporters Clash In Blantyre

There are ugly scenes outside Malawi Bureau of Standards (MBS) Office and Laboratory Complex in Blantyre as youths clad in Malawi Congress Party (MCP) tshirts and women in the party’s full attire have clashed with their UTM counterparts.

The MCP dressed members have also destroyed UTM placards, tore UTM clothes, flags and mercilessly beaten up some of their colleagues.

This happened in full view of security personnel.

Calm has only returned after UTM secretary general, Patricia Kaliati, asked the UTM members to leave the front role where they wanted to welcome president Lazarus Chakwera and his vice Saulos Chilima, leaders of the two major political parties which formed the Tonse Alliance electoral coalition.
