CHANGE OF VENUE
It was reported that venue for UTM meetings has changed from Mr. Kuseka Warehouse in Njamba Blantyre to New Naperi Lodge because the Mr. Kuseka has informed them that he is no longer comfortable to host the team.
CONCERNS ABOUT MICHEAL USI STATEMENTS.
Bon Kalindo told the meeting that Hon. Kaliati and Hon. Masangwi were not amused about statements Micheal Usi made at the Njamba rally about ” Achilima muchenjele ndi anthu amene abwela kuno chifukwa chofuna maudindo”. Komanso anthu amene akuzungulirani”. And his reference to corruption and the people that were with Mutharika.
Kalindo explained that Hon. Kaliati and Hon. Masangwi are of the feeling that Manganya is targeting them. Kalindo informed the meeting that he was sent by the two to express the concern about such statements and that Manganya is a new comer in the movement and should not bring confusion for his on agenda.
The meeting asked if these concerns were the reason the two individuals have been absent at meetings. Kalindo explained that he was not sure about that.
REPORT ON OPERATIONS
The meeting was brified that operations to change DPP grassroots structures were going in well in some areas but meeting resistance in others. The team agreed that there was need for change of strategy. The meeting was informed that the strategy of misinforming DPP grassroots committes that APM will not run for presidency and that APM is the one who has secretly sent Chilima to declare his Presidential interest awaiting his withdraw in December 2018 is now meeting resistance at the DPP grassroots due to the fact that DPP has stepped up campaign for APM’ presidential candidacy in 2019. The meeting was informed that this approach backfired in Kachere Blantyre where the UTM underground team were chased away and beaten by DPP committee members and thugs organized by John Bande.
The meeting agreed to continue with the strategy but that more youths should be engaged to target bigger areas as they were running short of time.
The meeting agreed to increase the number of youth for this task to 55 and that for now they should target the lowershire DPP structures starting with Esther Mcheka Chilenje constituency.
Mr. Richard Makondi reported that the 50 Million he received from his brother in Lilongwe for the first phase had been exhausted and that he paid all the youth involved 100 thousand kwacha each.
The meeting agreed to print more DPP t—shirts and fake DPP Id’s for distribution to the 55 youths for the use in lower shire.
The team was briefed that Dr. Chilima and Dr. Usi have informed them that after the Mzuzu launch they two will be making an unannounced visits to Road Traffic Department, Immigration, Hospitals to take advantage of people gathered there to address them and assure them that if voted into power they shall sort the challenges they face there. The team agreed to be informed at least two days in advance about the visit so as to mobilise support.
Concern however was raised as to whether this strategy will not lead to arrests for unlawful assembly and the meeting was assured that the VP would be making the visit as official government tour of duties.
MZUZU TRIP
The meeting was informed that the UTM team would depart Blantyre for Mzuzu on Tuesday.
A. O. B
The team agreed to inform the VP that Manganya should be censored before the Mzuzu regional launch.
The team agreed to send a delegation to Manganya and informed him that he should stop telling members that Chilima informed him that he is eared marking him for the movement’s runnimate as it was causing confusion and it was likely to disappoint Richard Msowoya and his people in the movement.
The meeting observed that Msowoya has been key to mobilising UTM support from MCP, as such it will be a miscalculation to show signs of dumping him in favor of Manganya too early. The team agreed find better strategies to penetrate DPP strongholds and observed that it was proving easy to penetrate MCP areas than DPP.
Richard Makondi informed the meeting that he was still waiting for the 86 Million Kwacha budgeted for purchasing and distribution of bicycles for distribution to chiefs and DPP Committee Chairs and that he was the one to do the distribution.
