I hope Malawi has taught you a lesson not to be election tourists and rubber stump whatever the government of the day says.. Malawi’s stellar performance in the just ended election cycle should be an embarrassment to ALL INTERNATIONAL ‘OBSERVERS”. Our votes are sacred and should therefore be treated as such

True and also no more elections tourists in the name of observers in the future. We’ve on our own conducted in my view, the best elections ever, without any foreign interference.
