“We understand that UDF is a party, but at the same time A.A.M is the brand that the party has groomed over the years hence the need to have him within us,” reads a letter in part.
However,the members through Padambo have requested Muluzi to consider rescinding his decision and that they are ready to hold mediation talks with him on the matter.
