Hundreds of United Transformation Movement (UTM) supporters that patiently waited outside the High Court in Blantyre from morning roared and danced in wild celebration while running towards the court premises in anticipation to grasp the victory message better.
The court had today just ruled that the Registrar of Political Parties should register the movement within seven (7) days effective September 21 2018.
The grouping had dashed to court to appeal after the Registrar of Political Parties refused to register the grouping.
On Friday , UTM supporters had their last laugh as they mocked and denounced their perceived destructors and oppressors as “small kids” who cannot match them at their political game, in obvious borrowed language of their leader Saulos Chilima who usually refers to his main opponents, especially the governing Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) as “afana” (small kids) who cannot afford to rig 2019 elections.
“God is with us and he’s fighting this battle for us, stage by stage,” shouted one female supporter.
Using the music equipment from one of the UTM branded vehicles; they played music in support of Chilima as several of the Judiciary staffers drew closer to watch what was slowly turning into a mini political rally outside the court premises.
The UTM leaders present that included secretary general Patricia Kaliati, national chairman Noel Masangwi, Steve Mikaya, MPs Allan Ngumuya and Paul Chibingu and others, got into the pickup truck to address the supporters.
Kaliati thanked the supporter for their unwavering support and patience, declaring they were now headed to make the next government in May next year.
She said UTM was unstoppable and the move to foil their registration of the movement into a party was defeated through today’s court ruling.
Kaliati asked all supporters to get into their vehicles to take on a road show as part of celebrating their victory.
