Pamene zinthu zafikapa, I applaud the chief for his courage. Everyone needs to vote next year kuti mbava zonse zichoke. Voting has become a moral responsibility for Malawians.

Chiefs do not have the power to fine people for not registering to vote in elections. In a democracy, people have the right to register or not; to vote or not.

I agree with you Kada but then what is the solution? Let us urge people to go and register in large numbers so that we can boot out these thieves. The strategy adopted by the Dedza chief should be emulated by others.

Mr DC, you are also a liar. No should be punished for not registering. Why are you behaving as if you have not been to school? Punishing someone for registering really? You are the people who making this country remind us of Kamuzu Banda. Do not force people to register, make them see why they should register and vote. Also understand why people do not register. Address those issues, but not to penalise someone for not registering.
This can only happen in Dedza. This cannot happen in Ngoniland of Mzimba

Bravo chief. That’s what chiefs should do; not being used as we have been seeing. On a different note, I have always wondered why registration exercises always start in the centre. Why can’t we start with Thyolo and move to the centre after the exercise has been perfected? I think this is one form of rigging.

Fine for not registering? The is abuse of power. People should to be fine for choosing not to exercise their freedom. It is not a must.

Bad news for MCP indeed. Ife ndiye kummwera tikukalembetsa tidzabvotelanso wathu. Chigawo chapakati changoganiza zotsalembetsa chifukwa sakumuona bwino chakwera. Ine kumangomva kukoma.

Last time I checked, Malawians were free to vote or not to vote. It is NOT a crime to not vote, is it? And one needs not to report to anyone about one’s voting intentions, who one votes for or whether one has not voted at all. Get with it, Chief: this is a democracy.
