Day 5 Malawi Elections Case: No UTM monitor has challenged the anomalies

The day five of the Constitutional Court hearing of the 2019 Presidential Elections case ended with UTM Presidential candidate Saulos Chilima telling the court, that no single monitor from his party challenged the results that were sent to the national tally centre in all the 5002 polling stations.

Chilima with lawyers 

Former Vice President ended his five-day marathon of being cross examined by the Attorney General Kalekeni Kaphale, agreeing with him that the results he disputed before the courts could not have made a difference in the outcome of the elections.

Dr. Chilima, who accepted that he did not meet some of his monitors or critique most of the documents presented, tussled with Kaphale the whole afternoon, but the AG still managed to get him accept that none of his party monitors challenged the alleged the results anywhere.

In this case, the UTM, which one of the lawyers claim had 40 sworn affidavits which were presented by Chilima and questioned a “smoking gun” which could counter the AG’s questions  centred on the results from polling centres and valid votes count or cast.

UTM has been questioning the type of forms, alleged intimidation, alleged bribing of voters and that the results did not reflect the true will of voters.

However, in the absence of a single centre being pinpointed as having altered the valid votes, it is a tall order for the UTM case to proceed on the basis of their submissions.

The court will not sit on Thursday to give way to the Supreme Court to hear an appeal by the Attorney General on whether the matter should proceed or not, based on rules of procedure which he challenged had not been met.

The argument is that when one taks a sample, one provides for margin of error for the strata to be acceptable. Nde the country has been inflamed because of half a percent?

Koma a Chilima zimenezi sakudziwa munthu oti ali ndi doctorate ya pa internet?

Rigging doesn’t happens at monitoring levels rigging or electral fraud happens ku ma data entry and commissions level. Monitors did sent marred irregularities or conformance electoral sheet and signed them, they didn’t see typical rigging of TPEX. Kodi mnyamata adapezrka ndi zochonga chonga adamwalira uja simunawone.

MIND YOU, YOUNG JUDGES IN LILONGWE HAS BEEN INTIMIDATING KAPHALE AND THEY WILL INTIMIDATE HIM ON THE RESULTS OR JUDGEMENT. ITS TIME FOR THEM TO MAKE THEIR NAMES ,THE WORLD IS WATCHING WITH KEEN INTEREST.

REMEMBER THAT THERE AFTER IT SHALL BECOME LAW OR REFERRAL CASE ..

Kodi chilima akutaniko kumeneku? It seems he has nothing to offer in courts. Pali ponse kungoyankha sodzawika ngati ali ku mowa, mowa wakeso tintotu. Otherwise, he has made the tempo of the proceedings very dull. Mu 2024 mukadzaluzaso kwa abambo a misinkhu yanu, do not answer like this. This time around, you have goofed big timei. When the court breaks on friday for a weekend, dn not drink kadamsana over the weekend. Ask for documents from your lawyers and study them thoroughly in preparation for next week.

You will cry foul when your Jane Ansah Cadet, Alfandika and Peter fail to explain where they got tippex? Who bought and supply it? Bcoz they ( MEC) refused that they did not supply tippex then who did???

The answer point to Peter as supplier of tippex so for what intent ??

No LEGAL evidence of political interference whatsoever, and so far, from Chilima – the arrogant one.
He’s done like dinner now.
And, a lingering question, and one Malawians are wondering about: Who is paying the lawyers representing Mr HARDtalk? UTM has no money, and that is obvious.
And if he has to pay these lawyers out of his own pocket, that will impact his financial portfolio significantly. But then wait: he did hit the CASHGATE jackpot!

None of your business to ask Chilima who pays for his lawyers . Nkhani ndiyoti zisankho anabera.

Wether percentage is too small or what ever the case might be koma kuba ndi kuba.
Kaya waba sweet imodzi mu shoprite basi ndiwe wakuba no matter the percentage of the sweet.

Ukazengedwa mulandu wakuba batsi ku court ndi sweet wabayo.

The case will continue. Let’s hear the other side so people can make an informed opinion.
