The 11-member Commonwealth Observer Group will be supported by a staff team from the Commonwealth Secretariat from London when Nigeria holds its fifth election since the end of military rule in 1999 to elect president, members of the House of Representatives and the Senate.

Commonwealth Secretary General  said he was “delighted”  and “grateful” that Muluzi had accepted the invitation to lead the Group.

Sharma said the Commonwealth attaches great importance to conducting “credible elections as a means of strengthening democracy and giving citizens the opportunity to choose their leaders.”

Muluzi, whose team will be based in Abuja, confirmed his appointment and said  as matter of courtesy, he informed  Malawi President Peter Mutharika of his appointment.

“I informed  the Head  of State, Prof Mutharika and the President has congratulated and wished me well,” said Muluzi.

He has however raised security concerns for his team as the  infamous Boko Haram militants who have denounced democracy and are fighting to impose their strict version of Shariah law.

The Commonwealth Secretariat has assured his team of a comprehensive security plan, including a provision of police escort.

Muluzi’s team set to assemble in Abuja on February 7, includes members from Australia, Ghana, Jamaica, Kenya, Malaysia, South Africa, Uganda and from diverse fields.

    Some Malawians are downright stupid . Mumachemerera zautsiri . 1994 : Wakuba yemweyo . 2015 : Wakuba yemweyo . Fortunately, more and more Malawians now realise that this man Bakili did more harm than good to this country . Kamuzu Banda worked tirelessly for 30 years to give this country direction and a sense of purpose . Bakili ( Wokuba yomweyo ) destroyed all that within a mere 10 years .

  15. If His excellence Muluzi is really going it means he is fit to stand his trials. When it is court you say my discs are paining but where is money ndiye you are fit. Take care of the BOKO HALAM a chair, they are dangerous fox.

  27. NKHAMANGA says:

    It’s sheer absurdity, this new found bond between the Master Cashgater (B Muluzi) and the toothless leader who dubiously got ushered into power, but it was meant to pass considering the croocked backgrounds of their political organisations. Of late it seems like BM is healed of his fake spinal disorder for the toothless old APM, for political convenience sake, is not pursuing his embezzlement sins. GOSH!!!!!

  28. A COMMONER says:

    All the best and let the will of the pipo be done in the naira land and Oggar landooo

    The Chair taught Malawians a very bad self serving characters syndrome. First it was BM and his backache. Now its Lutepo with his uncontrolled bowel open system as he can not control his rectum and he can not appear in court for cash-gate case. Had it been that it was a poor Malawian who has just stolen a chicken with value of less than one pound , he could have been rotting in prison with his backache or his bowel open. my mother Malawi yayayayayaya…..ishiiiiiiiii. Another is mama JB who has just decided to disappear into thin air from cash-gate cases.She is free. I am told she has already acquired green card and she will never come back till 2017.Akuopa kuti bp yawo imakwera akamva za cashgate. Zamkutu. Kodi ndani amene bp yake simakwera popeza ya Sawamba nayeso yake imakwera mpaka a profeti deeper deeper.M’mbandiseweretsa eti.

  34. NYAKWAWA says:

    Commonwealth inasankha dziko la Malawi kuti likhale timu leader.

    Ndiye atafunsidwa kupereka dzina bwana president APM anapereka dzina la a Chair osati zomwe akunena kuti anakamuuza APM.

    APM ndi yemwe anasankha a Chair.
    Congrats munthu wamkulu.

  35. Mr.Bambo says:

    Anyamata a pa town ameneo,always proud of you a Chair!!!

  36. Wopondaponda says:

    Congratulations BM you make us proud.

  37. Omwami says:

    I thought this gentleman had back problems and was constantly in South Africa for treatment. Is he now healed? Now that they are no longer pursuing him in court? Malawi has very interesting self serving characters. This thief and crook is the one that started all the BS that is Malawi today.

    1. Elhapo says:

      That is why I will never believe any Head of State who claims that he/she does not meddle in the business of ACB.
