Atupele: Ignore unofficial results being circulated

The Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) accused Malawi Congress Party (MCP) and UTM Party supporters of assaulting its monitors in the Central Region to prevent them from monitoring Tuesday’s fresh presidential election.

President Peter Mutharika alleged the attack, especially in Lilongwe, was a systematic and deliberate ploy by MCP and UTM—two of the nine parties in Tonse Alliance—to frustrate their monitors.

In a media briefing on Friday,  Atupele  had delegated him to speak to reporters to express dismay that DPP monitors had virtually no access to monitor the electoral process in Lilongwe Kasiya and Lilongwe Mapuyu North.

Atupele has since urged the alliance’s supporters not to lose hope , considering that Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) has not officially announced a winner, saying there is “no winner or loser” in this election.

He said MEC is the only institution legally mandated to announce a winner of any national election; hence, all announcements from other media outlets declaring the winner are irrelevant.

“Who told you that we have lost this election? DPP-UDF have not lost this election. There is no winner, there is no loser,” he said.

“If you want to ask about the future of Malawi, the future of DPP-UDF, the future President Professor Arthur Peter Mutharika,  ask after we have completed the process. Let us wait for the Electoral Commission to pronounce itself then President Peter Mutharika will speak, then Atupele Muluzi will talk about the future.

“ Right now we do not have a winner, we do not have  a loser,” said Muluzi.

MEC chairperson Dr Chifundo Kachale said they referred to police acomplaint from DPP regarding alleged incidents in Lilongwe where the party’s monitors were allegedly harassed, intimidated and abducted.

Kachale said: “The commission has looked into the matters and found that they border on criminal conduct. Therefore, the complaint has been referred to the Malawi Police Service for further investigation.”

Next time we too shall hack MCP monitors. We shall also abduct mcp monitors. We shall also kill mcp monitors. We shall also prevent mcp monitors to vote or to sign tally sheets. The killing of monitors and prevention of monitors to exercise their duties are police cases not electoral matters so this shall not affect the votes as this is now allowed by Kachale of MEC. Party monitors can be prevented to sign tally sheets but this is not an issue and the vote still remains valid according to Kachale the mec chairperson. So next time, we in DPP… Read more »

Tribalism mwinithako, don’t you feel ashamed when you insult someone whose not even involved in this particular matter? Respect yourself. Don’t talk only about mcp, how many innocent people dpp has killed? Who sent retired soldiers to Nkhotakota to rig votes, dpp right? Now you’re blaming & insulting Chakwera for something which he heard too like you? Sorry there is a need of transformation in you. We are now so glad that all tribalism, nepotism, regionalism, it’s over. We need Malawi that has no southerners, northerners & central. We need Malawi that would change your ill mentality.

‘Arse owner’ (Mwinithako), insulting our president will not help you at all. It just shows how thick-headed you are. You are bitter that your ‘dad’ has lost and you are a good example of a bad loser! Accept the fact that we now have a new president in the name of Dr L. M. Chakwera. Long live Chakwera, long live Malawi.
