Date: Jul 4, 2022

Malawi’s Vice President and also the President of United Transformation Movement Saulos Chilima, says if the alliance breaks down between his party and President Lazarus Chakwera’s party, then Malawi will need to go for another presidential poll.

Speakingover the weekend at a press briefing at the UTM’s headquarters in Lilongwe, Chilima said according to the agreement signed between the two parties prior to the June 2020 presidential by-election, Chakwera will have to serve for one term only.

He said the agreement was signed in the presence of some faith-based organisations and other stakeholders.

He said it will be his turn to represent the Tonse Alliance in the next presidential race in 2025.

Chilima further said that he would speak at a later time regarding his alleged implication in a corruption scandal involving some Malawi’s public officials and a British businessman, Zuneth Sattar.
