Constitutional Court says Malawi poll case ruling between December 21 and February 2020

Ruling on the landmark presidential election case is expected between December 21 and end of February, a senior court official has hinted.

A panel of five judges comprising Ivy Kamanga, Dingiswayo Madise, Mike Tembo, Redson Kapindu and Healey Potani as chairperson will not be persuaded to make a decision by public opinion

Registrar of the High Court and the Supreme Court of Malawi Agnes Patemba says the extension of time for the petitioners to make their final submissions on the case will not affect the calendar for the ruling.

“What will be affected is the time limit for the respondents to respond to the submissions, nothing else,” said Patemba.

Patemba said the ruling will be delivered within 45 days after the oral submissions to the court on December 19 and 20, saying the ruling is therefore slated any day between December 21 and end of February.

“The judges have made the commitment to deliver the judgment within the 45 days,” said Patemba.

UTM president Saulos Chilima and Malawi Congress Party’s Lazarus Chakwera are challenging the presidential election result in the court which they say were manipulated in favour of president Peter Mutharika, claim denied by both the Malawi Electoral Commission and Mutharika.

The world is watching be very careful, the elections were flawed a lot of cheating took place, no doubt about it. If Peter was honest to himself he wouldn’t even lead. God will charge him for the misery he brought to Malawi.

We overheard some of the drunkard judges say they will rule for nullification

Dont worry brother, let them do what pleases them. If a nullification is ordered one of the five judges will be forced to chair MEC and we will see whether managing an almost flawless election in an illiterate and poor country like Malawi will be possible.

I don’t think there will be such blatant incompetence, and poor management of elections ever, there were gross lapse of professionalism on the part of MEC which should NEVER be repeated!!!.

To Prophesie, you don’t need to ask for permission or being forced. Prophecy comes spiritually and it’s not a MUST THAT EVERY PROPHECY SHOULD BE PLEASING TO EVERY POLITICAL DIVIDE /PARTY. The aim of Prophecy is to forewarn, us before the D-day comes. Even in the Bible, Prophecies were used to tell people in advance of what is going to happen either good or bad. Many Men of God have already made their prophecies know, but you Cadets, you are ignoring them just Bcoz they speak against your party, DPP. Prophecies always disappoints some people and it also make others… Read more »

The judgement is obvious. A prophet already knows it.
