Malawi Congress Party (MCP) has rejected a police interim report on the cause of fire at Malawi Electoral Commission warehouse in 2014, saying there was political influence in the matter.
MCP publicist Jessie Kabwila was on Sunday responding to Inspector General of Police Lexon Kachama who said a police interim report on the fire shows it was accidental not arson.
“This is sad, that fire cannot be an accident. Everyone knows what happened, everyone knows that the National Intelligence Bureau was involved,” said Kabwila.
She demanded another thorough investigation on the matter and come up with very independent results.
Kabwila said the MCP top brass would soon be meeting to make its stance clear on the investigation results that has taken the police one year to complete.
Kachama said it had taken that long because of the complexity of the matter and lack of capacity by the police to undertake such an exercise due to lack of forensic equipment.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
