United Transformation Movement (UTM) Campaign Director Lucius Banda has hailed former Speaker of the National Assembly Henry Chimunthu Banda for endorsing Tonse Alliance ahead of the fresh Presidential polls.
In an interview on Thursday, Banda said he and his constituents are impressed with what the Tonse Alliance‚ÄĒled by Malawi Congress Party (MCP) president Lazarus Chakwera and State Vice President Saulos Chilima, as running mate‚ÄĒstands for.
Banda also said it is within his and his constituents‚Äô right to chose who to support.
‚ÄúI had a meeting in my constituents where we agreed to endorse Tonse Alliance. I gave them a report on what has been happening politically, I told them that I refused ministerial post. I have informed them that I was completely out of equation within the DPP party,‚ÄĚ said Banda.
Writing on his official facebook page, Lucius hailed the step taken by Chimunthu Banda to dump the ruling DPP.
‚ÄúSince l met him in 1999. He has never been desperate, Narrow minded, selfish, or greedy. He has always been patriotic, upright, humble and very kind. I am not surprised he has endorsed the majority Alliance of Tonse… He is just too good not to be part of Tonse. Bravo namesake!!!,‚ÄĚ wrote Lucius.
Banda recently rejected a Ministerial post from President Professor Arthur Peter Mutharika.
