Chakwera leading in Malawi presidential polls: Heading for 61 %

Unconfirmed results emanating from Tonse Alliance Tally Centre confirms a considerable win for their leader, Lazarus Chakwera.

Using data from their monitors in all district tally centres across the country, Tonse Tally Centre has put Chakwera with a considerable 901 201 marginal lead over President Peter Mutharika.

Their national figures show Chakwera soaring with 2 373 317 votes, representing 61.3 percent, over Mutharika with 1 472 108, representing 38.01 percent. Mbakuwaku is trailing with a meager 27 821 votes representing 0.72 percent.

However, Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) says it has, so far, received 5 percent of the national votes from the district tallies.

On the same note, government has urged political party leaders and their supporters to desist from publishing fabricated results on social media amid concerns that such conduct could undermine the integrity of the political process.

Government said in a statement signed by Minister of Information Mark Botomani: “We have learned that prior to voting, some people photocopied blank MEC result sheets which are being filled with the fabricated election results in order to confuse people.

“In this way, the public is being led to believe the fake results because they look genuine on a MEC form.”

Botomani has since urged political party leaders and their stakeholders to manage their expectation on the outcome of the poll while the Malawi Electoral Commission completes tabulating the votes in the fresh presidential election.

When God saw that King Ahab had brought evil into the kingdom through marrying Jezebel, He introduced a man who was equal to the task of uprooting that evil once and for all – the Prophet Elijah! God has not stopped doing that, He has done it again for Malawi! Lord we thank you.

It wasn’t easy for Elijah but what matters is who is on your side ( God or Satan). God never fails!

Ndiye winawe woonda ngati umbrella walandila MK250 million dzana dzanali, uyisanza imeneyo. If I were you, I would return this kuchepetsa zaka zokasewenza. Dzimvere mu mtolo!! Do not say I did not warn you. Yambanipo kubweza zokuba zija as we will track down all transactions including ma contracts a boma, malo amene agulidwa mwa chinyengo especially these Indians who are growing wings. I did not see any Indian vote and yet they claim to be Malawians why did not they vote? Muona nyekhwe mmene leader wanu waonera nyekhwe.
