Fare thee well Muluzi
So Bakili Muluzi has finally decided to throw in the towel. This can only be a positive decision and I wish him well in his retirement days. He deserves the rest.
The task is now for UDF to rise from the ashes and become a force to be reckoned with as it was in days gone past. The party will obviously miss its charismatic leader and his deep pockets. But at the same time could capitalise on the infighting in the MCP and the downward spiral in popularity of the DPP. It all depends on how Friday Jumbe and his team strategise.
There are issues that could dog Jumbe’s job and include uncompleted corruption cases against him. All we can do wait and watch.
