Chilima files in court to annul presidential results: To kick off mega ‘Thank you’ political rallies

UTM Party  president Saulos Chilima has filed at High Court a case  to have results of the presidential elections held on May 21 nullified and says he will soon kick off what he calls mega ‘thank you’ political rallies across the country.

Chilima: Goes to Court

Chilima, President Peter Mutharika’s immediate past veep came in third with a with 1,107,369 (20.24%)

In a brief statement, Chilima, who quit the ruling party last year, citing rampant corruption says he will criss cross the country again to address Malawians but said  dates and time would be communicated later.

The mega ‘thank you’ political rallies come at a time when party legal team have gone to the High Court to seek a rerun of the May 21 highly contentious tripartite election.

The 10 month old UTM managed to get four parliamentary seats out of 193 and 39 councillors out of 400.

Malawians writing in social media said Chilima had done a campaign never seen before in the history of the country.

On May 21, 74% of the 6,859,570 registered voters cast their votes in what was largely an incident-free polling day.  Chilima however had to wait at least 40 minutes before he could vote, because his name had been transferred from his official polling station.

President Peter Mutharika in his inaugural speech urged the southern African nation to move on.

Mutharika, who now has a mandate to serve his second and final term, said that “whether you voted for us or not, I am still your president”.

ANTONY,SHUTUP your smelling mouth and if you know nothing about our unfortunate MALAWI,YOU CAN GO TO HELL!!!!!! Your SO-CALLED Kamuzu did not emulate anything from Nelson Mandela,Africa’s greatest leader of our time.If your bloody Kamuzu took something from Mandela,he could not have ruled Malawians for 37 years.In fact he once said that he could rule Malawians for 40 years while himself living abroad.Realistically,Banda took Malawi as his personal entity as one song said,ZONSE ZIMENE NI ZA KAMUZU BANDA and indeed he was right.So for Malawians,how long we are going to be enslaved by the uncouth leaders?

All Players Remember What Kamuzu tought the world ..Mandela borrowed the same leaf.. rooted in the Bible “not by power nor by might but by the spirit of the Lord ( If my people shall humble themselves and pray God will heal their Nation). Kamuzu taught unity ..no tribalism and only Dialogue the only means to get to t
he winning end.
