The High Court in Blantyre adjourned ruling of a poll results dispute case for Zomba Central Constituency to a later date.
The case involves opposition Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) formerMember of Parliament (MP) for the constituency Yunus Mussa and the incumbent parliamentarian for People’s Party (PP) Patricia Kainga Nangozo.
Mussa, who is being represented by Dr Necton Mhura, is contending in the court that the May 20 tripartite election results for various
centres in the constituency had some grave irregularities.
Kainga Nangozo is being represented by private lawyer Ralph Mhone whereas the Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) has lawyer Mkwamba.
Counsels made their submissions to the court on Monday in a hearing presided over by Justice John Chirwa.
The DPP eastern region vice-president is challenging poll centre results from Sacred Heart School, Chancellor College, Matiya School,
Chinamwali, Thundu School, Chalomwe School and Satema, where he claims there were massive irregularities.
Justice Chirwa adjourned ruling of the case as followers of DPP and PP waited with keen interest outside the courtroom.
Meanwhile, Kainga Nangozo sympathizers have challenged Mussa to name the developments he has done in the constituency for the ten-year period he has been as MP.
“He should come in the open and tell us which development projects he has done for the residents of Zomba City during the period he has been MP. He had his time and now it is for [Patricia Kainga] Nangozo,” said one of the sympathizers Christopher Jana.
