The Secretary General of UTM Patricia Kaliati has continued her tour of the Southern Region where she has urged women to register in big numbers. The firebrand Kaliati was speaking in Monkey bay .
She has urged the women to secure their vote and not be tempted to sell their voter cards or let anyone get their cards in the name of Madef loans. With strong rumours that some suspected DPP cadets are going round buying voter cards in the promise of Madef loans, Kaliati said no any finance organisation walks door to door and demand ID cards as a collateral for loans.
Kaliati also took time to sensitise the locals of the dangers of Covid19. She distributed hand washing soap so that the locals can use to wash their hands and minimise spread of corona virus.
Kaliati has travelled extensively in the region. On Friday she was in Thyolo district where she met the ex DPP and UDF members who have joined UTM.
The new members include DPP former youth chairman for Thyolo East Mr Evance Siposi , DPP area chairman Mr Mawaya , DPP’s campaign chairman Mr Rodrick Lutu and the UDF district Governor Arson Magulura
In his speech Evance Siposi emphasized that time for voting a president because he comes from the same village with him is over, he further said that he and colleagues have opted for UTM because of its manifesto especially the missile that highlights a 50 KG bag of fertilizer at MK 4,495 .
UTM has seen a wave of new members joining the party recently with many coming from UDF and DPP. Kaliati said she is happy the party is making big strides in the region.
