Chilima was making a direct reference to the just ended landmark presidential election court case in which he and Malawi Congress Party (MCP) president Lazarus Chakwera are challenging the election results.

"I have been advised not to comment on the matter, therefore I will not say anything," he said.

However, he advised UTM members to remain united.

"I wish all Malawians a merry Christmas and Happy New Year. We should all remember to keep on praying to God for everything," said Chilima.

He urged the organisers of the event to hold such family day events in all the regions of the country.

Lots of UTM supporters braved heavy rains to attend the event which was spiced by food and sports.
