The country’s President Lazarus Chakwera and his vice, Dr Saulos Chilima have agreed to continue working together through their Tonse Alliance.
In a joint press statement released by Chakwera’s Malawi Congress Party (MCP) and Chilima’s United Transformation Movement (UTM), the two have said they have come to an agreement to continue working together for the greater good of the Malawian people within the Tonse Alliance Framework.
“The leaders of Malawi Congress Party and UTM met on Thursday, 7th July 2022. The meeting, which was attended by the Presidents of both parties and their delegations, agreed to uphold a policy of direct and regular engagement to harness their relationship and accomplish the vision towards which they first agreed to serve the Malawi nation together,” read part of the statement signed by publicity secretaries of the two parties.
The statement did not further indicate if Chilima is to take the President’s office from 2025 as he previously claimed.
