Chakwera says MCP to commence legal action against MEC, NRB on ‘voter registration fraud’

Malawi Congress Party (MCP) is  demanding auditing of voters rolls of  Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC)  and data based on National Registration Bureau (NRB)   alleging that it is being tampered with ahead of July 2 fresh presidential elections.

Chakwera says that to ensure that the voters’ roll is clean, the party will ask the court to intervene so that MEC data is disclosed.
MCP says the youngest person registered in both MEC and NRB system was born in 2019.

MCP presidential hopeful Lazarus Chakwera  told a news conference at the party headquarters in Lilongwe on Wednesday that  MEC ‘s voters roll  has been  contaminated  a “fake portal” which  contains of about 7 000 children not eligible to vote.

Chakwera said that to ensure that the voters’ roll is clean; the party will ask the court to intervene so that MEC data is disclosed.

He said MCP will not accept MEC to award a “fraudulent” victory to his rival President Peter Mutharika in the re-run and “neither will the people”.

Chakwera said Malawi is already struggling with two battles – Coronavirus and to have credible elections.

“There is need to vote and have clean results but MEC is not doing enough to protect the votes, there is a scheme at MEC that threatens the security of your vote.

“We now have evidence that the voters roll is compromised by buying of IDs and registration of minors,” said Chakwera.

MCP party’s secretary general Eisenhower Mkaka also said the voters roll cleaning exercise will require services of experts.

He said the party has already instructed the legal team to follow up the scam so that there is an audit to the whole data base.

He commended Director of ICT Daudi Suleiman for leading in uncovering of the syndicate.

Suleman said there are also multiple registrations in the NRB system using the same ID number.

He said over 1 million under-aged children were also registered in the NRB system and there are over 12,000 registrants whose bio data is mismatching.

Suleman said the youngest person registered in both MEC and NRB system was born in 2019.

NRB denied claims of vote manipulation.

Some people are like darkness and hate the truth. The truth you are rejecting today you will cry for it. Very few in Malawi can do what Daud is doing this time. And everything happening today God sees and will act at the His appropriate time

Daud takes advantage of the iT ignorance in MCP and he knows Chakwera would be taken away with his garbage. Last time in court they had to even clap hands for him but those of us who know IT knew that whatever he was saying was just hips of manyi even the courts did not use his evidence to make its ruling. The same Daud is at it again preparing another ropund of mourning. These stupid people have sniffed deafeat and they are preparing in advance for the reasons to use when they are defeated. They will go to court… Read more »

If dpp is in again for fraud with MEC then they have failed. This wont happen if you deployed Somanje as we already suspected to manipulate data then you have failed this time around never tamper computers then you will be caught pant down. Same like your minister Botoman was conniving with Jappie to steal money meant for Malawians caught pant down.

By the time these elections are done and the winner is sworn in Mutharika would have already been in power for over 2 years shuwa. It seems to be one court case after the other.

As a seasoned IT guru, I have to acknowledge the work.being done by Daud. Malawians lets alway thrive for excellence. Lets clean up our systems..you may suffer now but its for the benefit of everyone in the long run. MEC and NRB are hosting critical public data. No one must be allowed to manipulatr this data. Gone are the days when you had very few IT gurus in Malawi. Please MEC, NRB note that we now have alot of experts in Malawi. Bring your databases on the table, you will be shamed!!!

I watched this pressor. I must say that it entrenched my position that this ex-reverend Lezala and his party of death and darkness should never be voted to lead Malawi. Lezala and his cholaboy Nkaka displayed total primitivity and u saveji in it’s real meaning. On response to a question on the HE address last night, Lezala responded as Nyau ya Nyolonyo ya kuKasiya should… referring to the point as …”zimene amanena mwawatchulawo….”. Stupidity does not pass this level. In fact I have quit the Assemblies that he was a president for over many years. How can a human being,… Read more »

Do you really believe that Assemblies of God cares that you joined another church? If you were a man of high moral integrity you would not have referred to him as Lezala and at the same time accused him of not respecting the grandpa. This clearly shows that your accusation is baseless and devoid of any merit. The constitution clearly says that Malawians will choose a president every 5 years through a credible ballot and now its past 5 years so why should he be taken as a credible president? He is a caretaker president who is hell bent at… Read more »

The solution to possible rigging is to announce results at Constituency level before they are electronically transmitted to the National Tally Centre. It is during the transmittal that rigging is likely to happen by corrupting the figures with bogus, ghost MEC votes. Opposition must insist on this even it means parliamentary approval.

How do you know he was born in 2019. In Malawi identifying the true age of a person is difficult. With no proper birth records we rely on how someone looks. In a country where stuntunting is vast, it really is a challenge. Even if these individuals are brought forth, it’s your word against theirs unless they indeed are 10 year olds. However how do you differentiate between a 16, 17 or 18 year old. It really is a challenge.
