UTM is now being challenged to simply leave the Tonse Alliance instead of making public statements demonizing how its key partner, Malawi Congress Party and President Lazarus Chakwera are managing state affairs as commentators believe the party goofed in the first place.

Political and governance commentators, Victor Chipofya and Ceasar Kondowe shared the sentiments during a Sunday Round Table Programme monitored on Capital FM this afternoon.

They described the recent UTM supporters’ public outbursts at a political rally in Blantyre as lacking merit; stressing the party’s leadership must directly engage MCP in closed doors.

Among others, thee UTM supporters claimed they are being sidelined together with their President, Dr. Saulos Chilima and cautioned Chakwera to respect their leader if he wanted to remain in his position until 2025; saying Chilima recruits and fires presidents.

Chipofya further said the future of the Alliance hidged on the key reasons for its formation while doubting its success if the motive was simply to get the Democratic Progressive Party led administration out of government.

But UTM spokesperson, Frank Mwenifumbo informed the program that what their supporters said during the rally was a public reflection of how they see things going on in the alliance and the country.

Kondowe attributed the supporters’ anger to their lack of knowledge on the key issues binding the Chakwera-Chilima agreement; stressing making the alliance document public would ease the tension.

He believed the party goofed at first by making the whole agreement a top secret yet this was supposed to be in public interest.

On this, Mwenifumbo said they were ready to make public the document provided MCP agrees to the arrangement; adding it was public document.
