Court allows live audio coverage of elections case: Times, Zodiak get permission

The Constitutional Court on Wednesday granted permission to Times and Zodiak for live audio coverage of elections case proceedings.

Tight security for the judges

Malawi Congress Party (MCP) president Lazarus Chakwera and UTM Party leader Saulos Chilima who are  disputing the May 21 presidential poll results.

The  case continued Wednesday morning in Lilongwe amidst tight security as police officers have surrounded court  premises forming a barrier to stop the public from going to the court.

The five-judges hearing the matter were given close escort by the military soldiers who beefed up security.

Both MCP and UTM presidents  Chakwera and Chilima respectively  did not attend  the court but senior party officials came to follow the proceedings.

Both MCP and UTM claim the May 21 Presidential Elections were rigged in favour of  President Peter Mutharika who was declared winner with 38 percent of the votes trailed by Chakwera with 35 percent and Chilima with 20 percent.

The five judges hearing the matter are Healey Potani, Mike Tembo, Dingiswayo Madise, Ivy Kamanga and Redson Kapindu.

We are still stuck in the era of darkness, fearing transparency etc… why fear video coverage, we already know all the people participating in this case. The “leaders” still believe that things should be hidden from the people. Dont fear citizens please, we are your employees. This is why the president travels around with almost 100 heavily armed bodyguards on his convoy, mukuopa chani agalu inu?
