Former Member of Parliament (MP) for Mangochi South West Justin Majawa and other supporters have over the weekend joined the UTM Party.
Majawa served as legislator for the constituency for one term from 2014 to 2019 as an independent candidate but lost to the DPP's Shadreck Namalomba.
At his welcome ceremony Majawa said UTM has a vision for Malawians based on its manifesto of the party and how it has performed since its inception.
“I think that UTM has made history since day one and I want to be part of the history and part of the development in the country,” he said.
Majawa justified him joining the party will add value saying all his structures have followed him.
“I am bringing my knowledge to the party so that it may add to what the party is doing and as a member of parliament from 2014 to 2019. I am also bringing people to the party, as you know for political party to be strong it needs people,” he added.
Majawa did not disclose about the intention of contesting again in the next election saying his focus now is to join the party and render his support.
UTM Director of women for the Eastern Region Shahida Hussein said people are flocking into the party due to its good leadership.
“I would just like to ask other UTM supporters to show love to the new members because we are all Malawians with one purpose of developing this country,” she said.
On Saturday the party also received former Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) members in Ntcheu including Rev. Mwai Kamuyambeni.
