The development then left the Ward- Returning Officer Lobo Tembo and the elections coordinator Victor Masina to negotiate with the National Institute for Civic Education and the election leaders the Malawi Congress party(MCP) to do the tasks for them.

The DPP Governor for the north Keneth Sanga and his candidate George Manda who boycotted the election result signing at the tally centre over allegations of fraud during voting, said his candidate and supporters would reject any results giving opposition MCP candidate Charles Mlogera the lead of 486 votes representing 39.1% win.

About 6296 registered for Chibanja ward.

The poll results also indicated that Gibson Chisale of Aford came second with 458 votes, Manda is third with 267 votes. Independent candidate Mike Phiri 16, Esmey Jere of Umodzi party 10 , and Ulaya Kaunda of Mafunde 5 votes.

The figures are for the whole of the three centers of Mbaweme CBO, New Jerusalem and Mundeba.

“ We will not accept the result. We told the Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC ) during voting that there were a lot of anomalies . People were all over around the polling centre dishing out money. Others hunted for registered voters in their homes to vote for them. I reported this at the regional MEC offices in Mzuzu hoping to make a correct decision but was busy watching,” Said Sanga.

But MCP’s Director of Elections Alexander Mwakikunga has dismissed the claims of fraud as not true.

Tembo and Masina in an interview said no body logged an official complaint.

Sanga said by voting MCP councillor people have chosen for darkness instead of light.

Winston musowoya, you are a stupid fool. You are not even a northerner. The past one party mcp kamuzu era is gone, it went away in 1994. You should be worried about the current dpp atrocities, let alone also those under bingu which targeted the north.

So please tell us something new not what we already know. This is new multiparty Malawi, amongst it is a new reformed, modernized mcp ready to work within a democratic environment which dpp is already tainting and abusing it.

Candidly,the people of the North have gone out of steam to elect MCP candidate in by- elections.Imagine,this is the Party that unleashed unprecedented atrocities against our people during Banda’s reign of terror that lasted thirty solid years.This naked betrayal will indeed,visit the sleeping spirits of our fallen heroes who lost their precious lives for us. Indeed,the innocent blood of Dunduzu Chisiza who was murdered in the MCP Head Quarters in Limbe and dumped in his own Mercedes Benz which was driven to Thondwe Bridge and left there so that people could think Du died in an accident.Orton Chirwa was murdered… Read more »
