Kaliati to Contest in 2025 Parliamentary Elections
UTM Secretary General and former parliamentarian for Mulanje West Constituency Patricia Kaliati on Sunday confirmed her intention to contest during the 2025 parliamentary elections in the constituency.
Kaliati who lost to Yusuf Nthenda during the 2019 elections said she feels her successor is failing to deliver as expected hence her decision to come back and contest during the polls.
She spoke during a political rally she held at Masitala trading centre in traditional Authority Juma in Mulanje district.
During the rally, Traditional Authority Juma pleaded with government to distribute food to hunger stricken families and provide soft loans to his subjects to start small scale businesses and be independent economically.
Kaliati who is also Minister of Gender, Community Development and Social Welfare said distribution of relief food to hunger stricken households will start this month.
Meanwhile, over two hundred people claiming to have come from the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) in Mulanje West constituency announced that they have joined the UTM party at the same rally.
