Chakwera says Malawi courts ‘fair and independent’ unlike the Tippex Electoral Commission

Malawi Congress Party (MCP) President Lazarus Chakwera has expressed hope in that the judiciary can demonstrate its independence in the court case, in which he us  praying for the nullification of the results  from the presidential race of the May 21 Tripartite Elections.

Chakwera (2ndL) stresses a point during the press briefing

Chakwera, who came second in the May 21 polls and is disputing results saying that they were rigged,  made the sentiments yesterday when he addressed the media at the party’s headquarters in Lilongwe alongside People’s Party (PP) and Freedom Party (FP) officials.

He said the party was pursuing the elections matter in court because “the Judiciary is fair and independent, unlike our Electoral Commission.”

Chakwera, who also came second in the 2014 elections, said the party would continue to use peaceful and lawful means to stand up for justice for all Malawians.

But  President Peter Mutharika told Malawians that Chakwera, who joined forces with PP in last month’s elections run up, is mobilising party supporters in a political unrest

Chakwera has distanced himself from claims instead he has accused President Mutharika of the same for letting police to use excessive force on unarmed protesters.

Kikiki oChakwera: you praise the Court today alright. But you will be crucifying them when they decide NOT in your favor. So, your comments are not worth the breath.
Rule of thumb is for politicians not to comment on cases that are in Court. Baasi.

Chakwera should have kept quiet on this matter. Kuchepa nzeru kumeneku. The court may rule against him with this kind of kindergarten comments. Kupembedza ma court kumeneku. Keep quiet Lazaro.

O Chakwera, why isn’t Chilima with you at this press conference. The courts asked you, MCP and UTM, to merge your cases. This means, you should be sharing notes. What else do you want the courts to teach you? Dunderheads. Do you people have advisers with brains? Mukufuna a court achite kumakuimbirani ma phone. Akagamula zosagwirizana ndi a MCP, koma a UTM ndi kulola mutani? Please talk with your advisers. Mwina nao atopa ndikukulangizani. Zimatopetsatu ukakhala kuti ukulangiza osamva. And, by the way, phokoso lonseli mukuopa MCP yanu yomweyo. If you have to follow the M+CP constoitution, it’s the end… Read more »

By just reading some comments here, it has proved that we have only very few people in Malawi plus idiots, if election we had on 21 May is the story we are taking our powers to write many things against the truth here, then idiots are many than people in this country. I have realize that idiots can choose the President.

When he led by 9000 votes he said MEC was cool. Now if the same courts rule otherwise, he will say they are compromised
