The recent events in the political circles have prompted me to draft a letter to the Malawi Congress Party leadership on behalf of the United Democratic Front leadership on the possible alliance with them.
We have been away for too long now its time to come back. We were once a big party when the Late Ngwazi was still in control. Yes we remember how things were before we rebelled to form the pressure group and later a party UDF.
Hope you will forgive and forget some of the things that have happened along the way. A lot has been said and done about the once mighty party, MCP to which most of us belonged. We remember our Chairman saying in one of the rallies that Honourable Tembo's hands are full of blood. Now that we will be working together, forgive it was just a slip of the tongue. Sorry for the arrests we made a few years back. We had no choice but to let justice follow its course. We are happy that you won the case and came out clean.
I also believe that you are well acquainted with the circumstances that have forced us to come back. With a few days to vote in the most important General Election, we as a party don't have a Presidential candidate. Our project to let the former President bounce back has been dealt a heavy blow. We still maintain that he is the only person capable of leading this country to prosperity.
We took Malawians for granted when we started this project seven years ago. They rejected the third term bid, open term bill and now our efforts to utilise the loop hole in the Constitution has failed to convince the Electoral Commission. we still hope that the Constitutional Court will interpret the Constitution in our favour but time is not on our side. We cannot let down millions and millions of Malawians who are eager to bring down this Government we have.
There is no better time to return to our roots than now. We have also managed to convince your longtime nemesis, Gwanda Chakuamba to support your candidancy. We know that we are coming back when you already made progress with your campaign but please consider us when giving positions. With us are several Presidents you should also consider in your next government. There is President Gwanda Chakuamba, President Amunandife Mkumba, President Kamlepo Kalua, President Uladi Mussa, and our leader, he prefers to be called Chairman (tcheya).
Forget about consulting the grassroots, they will follow whatever we tell them to do. We need to be united and use every way possible to bring down this government. Its just a matter of timing and strategy. Hope you remember how timing and strategy helped us to steal the Presidency from the Late Chakufwa Chihana in 1994. We were just at the right place and at the right time the rest is history. You also remember how we robbed you of the Presidency in 2004. The late Dumbo Lemani made sure that you all knew what happened.
Please welcome us back! We wish we had come earlier like our friends Brown Mpinganjira and President Ralph Kasambara but our faith in the democratic system has let us down. Now that fate has brought us together let us work hard to make the Late Ngwazi smile wherever he is. We believe that he will be very happy to learn that his party's former Secretary General, some of his exiled members and a crop of new blood from UDF have come back to the mighty Congress.
All the best.
