Day 4 Malawi elections case: Chilima admits he has no answers

As predicted, Attorney General Kalekeni Kaphale is expected to wind up Wednesday after successful soliciting from Saulosi Chilima that his evidence was hearsay, unfounded and a shocking admission that he did not speak to monitors who claimed  malpractices that allegedly affected the 2019 elections.

Chilima: No answer 

The pattern for the day was the same, with defence laywers Marshal Chilenga, Chikosa Silungwe and Bright Theu taking turns to interrupt Kaphale, asking him to run through the evidence. Kaphale insisted on putting every document presented on record, saying he had a bitter lesson from his past experiences.

The UTM Party presidential candidate who tried to fight back after miserable performance in the first three days he gave evidence only worsened the position of the party claims, when he said he did not have an answer why he did not ask monitors.

The second catastrophic response when he was asked if he had spoken to the witnesses who had given sworn affidavits. Chilima again said he had not.

On whether he was able to get a different set of results from the duplicate, tippex or any other form he called “fake or irregular” the former Vice President said he did not have any results.

It would be interesting to see how Chilima’s claim can be defended as he has no other results save for irregularities which in basic legal sense would not change the electoral outcome against him.

The uneventiful day four ended with the same question as before, why did the UTM leader tell Malawians he had overwhelming evidence, when clearly, through the cross examination, either he does not know or he was not even in touch with people who made the allegations.

Chilima’s representatives across Malawi did not dispute any alleged irregularities or produce contrary results. May be the MCP will have a strong case.

So far we can safely say the odds are against the UTM leader.

AMALAWI mwina muchangamuka.Masomphenya tiribe .Moti aliyense akhoza kukulondolerani njira yolakwika inu komko.Pano mwatseguka m’maso koma mutalondola ndi kugwiritsidwa ntchito molakwika.Pano ogwirizana Aja ayambanso kuthawana ndi kukanilana ndipo sipapita nthawi.Kodi abusa nkhani yonseyi ndiyawo.Popeza Ali kukhwapa kwa Chilima iwo abweretsa chiani choposa bwana wawo Chilima.Asaonongetse ndalama za boma ndi nthawi.Angoti Amen.

As a lawyer, chilima is not a deal the deal will be from government to explain the tippex and Jane answers interview with zbs.
Other wise chilima’s answer either way can not bring judgment as he is not offender.

on tippex chilima already answered that it was not used for fraud. on who supplied tippex that will be answered by presiding officers and the answer is that they were using government offices that have such things.

When APM said ‘ndikunyenyanyenyani’ I thought it would be done in physical form.But now from the court proceedings, it is obvious that the tonne of bricks he was referring to was in fact intellect. Bravo to the smarts. Let justice prevail.

Chilima ndimbala yeni yeni osati masewela. Wearing an army regalia and calling for unmitigated violence against your kin and kind is really a tell-all sign of what kind of a leader we almost voted into power. Truth be told, the only opposition we have in Malawi is MCP and I hope the registrar of parties deregisters all nonperforming parties such UDF, PP, UTM and all. If we had fewer than 3 presidential candidates, all this hullabaloo would have been avoided. Now this clueless Chilima is busy parading himself like a fool in front of the whole world making frivolous and… Read more »

Has nyasatimes been infiltated by the agents of the most regionalistic, nepotistic, corrupt and inefficient regime Malawi has ever had. We are winning ths case after all the AG has admitted to deliberately tampering with the electroral results. The percentage is inmaterial.

Of course! Nyasa Times has always been a hand clapper and stooge of the DPP. However this will all come to pass once this court case is over, election nullified, a rerun takes place and MCP will ascend to power. The corrupt DPP syndicate will come to an end together with this garbage paper….
