The Mzuzu chapter of the YPU said this at a press conference that they staged at Mzuzu Youth Centre on Thursday.
Another member on the panel, Isaac Mkandawire, Mzuzu Young Politicians Union Secretary, called on MBC, the state broadcaster to produce programs that will build the nation instead of programs like "Mkutinji" and "Road to 2014," which he called "unfortunate."
He also said that firing Banda from the party will not go well with the country's need for development because Mutharika and Banda will not be working well together and the nation will suffer.
YPU also called on government to learn to separate government functions from political ones citing last Wednesday rally at Manolo in Mzimba where DPP was more on the agenda than the Function which was the launch on the national tree planting season.

Bulukutu Mkandawire, one of the founders of the union in the Northern Region said that Malawi is sliding back to the one party era with a culture of fear slowly taking over Malawians.
"People will stop opposing because of fear and all we will hear is about Peter...who is Peter anyway?" Bulukutu said.
The union denied being aligned to any party and said they represent all the youths in the country.
"What we want is development not politics, where is the YEDEF loan, for example?" asked Kacheche.
