United Democratic Front,(UDF)Presidential placards for its Presidential torch bearer, Atupele Muluzi placed all over Blantyre city have been ordered to be pulled down.

The development forced the party to place guards all over town.

A source who opted for anonymity said Blantyre City Council Chief Executive Officer, Ted Nandolo, who is in India has ordered Costly Chanza who is acting on his behalf to make sure that the placards are removed.

But Director of Town Planning and Estates Services at the council express dissatisfaction as he does not see any reason to get the placards removed as the party asked for permission.

In his comment, UDF spokesman Ken Ndanga said the party is “dismayed” with what he called “provocation tactics” by the governing People’s Party.

A political commentator in Blantyre wondered why the Council would stoop so low and remove the paid for advert in a campaign period in a democratic country when the ruling PP has billboards country wide.

Last week, the council hired some men to remove a placard at stadium round about near Mozambique club.

Meanwhile it is yet to be seen if these placards will be removed or not.
