Regional Chair for UTM in the North Leonard Njikho has dumped the party following bad cultural practices in the party of hating North people.
Njikho has left the party together with his deputy, a Mr Banda.
But most people are angry in the North with the way the Tonse Alliance has treated them after winning the polls.
Many gurus from the North who helped Chakwera to win the polls in the court ordered polls like Harry Mkandawire, Khumbo Kachali, Ralph Mhone, Frank Mwenefumbo, Yeremiah Chihana, Enock Chihana, Prof Chisi, Kamuzu Chibambo and many more were left in the cold and have mounted secret meetings to strategize on the next move.
Chakwera has come under fire for family appeasement in his Cabinet at expense of such multi talented gurus with huge experience in managing government affairs.
Chakwera has been nicked named ” Family Man” for his cabinet selection by the print media while his vice president chilima has instructed his party gurus to start campaign meetings for 2024 polls where is poised to stand on UTM tucket and not MCP.
