Amid political rallies that are happening across the country, leader of United Democratic Party (UDF), Atupele Muluzi, has refuted claims that that his party was sold and is no more.
Speaking at a rally in Ndirande Township, Blantyre Sunday, Muluzi described his ministerial job in the Democratic Progressive Party-led government as his practising of civilised politics.
The UDF leader, in his attempt to explain the point further, drew comparison with the United States’ politics, alluding it was important to emulate such politics.
“It is a new way of doing politics. You can lose an election but focus on nation-building and making sure people come together. We want civilised politics,” Muluzi said.
He further pleaded for understanding from his followers in the anticipation of welcoming old and new members.
He welcomed back Clement Stambuli and Yusuf Mwawa into UDF.
“There are many members that are coming to the party, they want to come back and make the party strong. It is important as a leader to welcome and recognise their contribution to the party and to the country,” Muluzi said.
He said the rally was one of many that he is set to hold across the country.
UDF and DPP became bedfellows soon after the 2014 tripartite elections and President, Peter Mutharika, drafted into his first Cabinet the UDF leader
Muluzi is Minister of Health and Population.
