Presidential Advisor on Youth and Arts Lucius Banda has denied the allegations that he is involved in buying members of Parliament of the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) to join the United Transformation Movement (UTM).

On Tuesday, the social media was awash with reports that some top officials in Tonse Alliance are busy on the ground offering MK50 million to Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) and Independent MPs to join the alliance.

The rumous implicated Banda and UTM Publicity Secretary Joseph Chidanti Mulunga of being in the forefront by the MPs.

According to the rumours, Banda is said to have approached female DPP MP Fyness Mangonjwa but she snubbed the offer.

But Banda distanced himself from the claims.

“I have never been bought and so I don’t believe in buying people.I have no respect for people who change political parties like they are changing socks.

“With the above background, it is not true that some young female mp has snubbed me and my deligation saying we wanted to give her 25 million.

“What nonsense!!! who is worth 25million? If by accident someone gave me that money for that use then I would buy her at 2million and bring back a change of 23 million. I am a very mature politician I don’t respect nomadic politicians,” said Banda in a statement posted on his official facebook page.

UTM and Malawi Congress Party (MCP) officials are busy welcoming MPs and other officials from opposition political parties.
