Tonse Alliance Fall Out To Affect Development And Democracy

Governance commentator Undule Mwakasungula hints that the Tonse Alliance fall-out has the potential to negatively affect the country’s development and democracy.

Divisions have rocked the nine-member Tonse Alliance as two key partners the Malawi Congress Party-MCP and UTM fight over the power sharing deal.

In his public address at the UTM offices in Lilongwe, yesterday Vice President Saulos Chilima revealed that President Lazarus Chakwera is a one term president.

Chilima, who is also the UTM leader, indicated that he is supposed to be the president and Chakwera the running mate in the next elections.

This is evidenced by as clause in the Alliance document which has been made public yesterday, after the alliance kept it under wraps for two years.

But the MCP Secretary General Eisenhower Mkaka argues that the party is not aware of that agreement.

Mwakasungula appeals to the alliance partners to continue working together in order to address the prevailing socio-economic challenges.

A Blantyre based social and political commentator Wonderful Mkhutche also envisages no future for the Alliance ahead of the 2025 polls
