Former President Dr. Bakili Muluzi has hailed President Professor Arthur Peter Mutharika for picking his son Atupele as runningmate ahead of the fresh Presidential polls scheduled for June 23, 2020.
Muluzi said this during a gathering at his home village, Kapoloma in the eastern district of Machinga, a stronghold for the United Democratic Front (UDF), according to an audio that has gone viral on social media.
According to Muluzi, it is âwitchcraftâ to be ungrateful for Mutharika’s gesture.
âWe are very grateful that Professor (APM) has settled for a child from this village to be his runningmate,â says Muluzi to the audience.
âNot only will he be a runningmate, he will also be the Vice President of this country.â
He then urged all people in the Eastern Region to support the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP)-UDF alliance ahead of the fresh polls.
