As the Tonse led administration clocks exactly two years in power, citizens have expressed mixed reactions to its performance and how is it handling the economy.
Political commentator, Professor Mustaffa Hussein, says the Tonse Alliance led government has given Malawians hope by looting out nepotism and attempted to bust corruption in its first year of office.
Two major parties in the governing Tonse Alliance, UTM and Malawi Congress Party (MCP), have not come out explicitly to disclose what is contained in the agreement between nine parties forming the grand coalition, a year after its formation.
The on-going parliamentary by-election campaign in has exposed CFT membership political allegiance which has potential to split the renowned political pressure group.
Some CFT leaders convened a press briefing in Lilongwe on Tuesday to attempt to explain that as a group, the political grouping is supporting the MCP in the current campaign.
However, there is an off-shoot CFT group in Karonga district that has openly said it is supporting the UTM.
CFT leaders Timothy Mtambo, who is also minister of Civic Education and National Unity has openly backed the MCP in the on-going parliamentary by-elections campaign.
UTM and MCP went to June polls together in what has come to be called the Tonse Alliance to unseat President Peter Mutharika and Mtambo used the CFT to help campaign for the Tonse Alliance.
The successful mission resulted in MCP leader Dr. Lazarus Chakwera becoming the state president and UTM president Dr. Saulos Chilima becoming the state vice president.
The two political parties now face off in by-elections in five constituencies where each hopes to carry the day.
Four followers of the Tonse Alliance were yesterday injured in two separate road accidents in Mchinji district.
