DPP says has no history of rigging, rejects opposition accusation

Malawi’s ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP)  is dismissing the opposition  UTM and Malawi Congress Party (MCP) electoral alliance  claims of  a vote-rigging plot , accusing it of trying to “concede defeat” so early before polling in the fresh presidential elections.

PP National Youth Director, Dyton Mussa, brushes aside claims of vote rigging by MCP and UTM.

A group of concerned youth from UTM and MCP led  Daudi Sulemani  alleged that both DPP and its alliance partner United Democratic Front (UDF) agents are confiscating national identity cards from people in rural areas, deceiving them that they are meant for registration of loans in the Central and Northern regions.

Suleman said the plot is to delete the data in the National Registration Bureau (NRB) system which they described as a setback to the social and economic development of the country in the future.

But Minister of Information, Civic Education and Communications Technology Mark Botomani and DPP National Youth Director, Dyton Mussa, brushes aside claims of vote rigging by MCP and UTM.

Botomani told TimesTalk radio programme on Tuesday – which host Brian Banda invited Sulemani and the Minister – that the allegations were empty political rhetoric.

“DPP has no history of rigging. The allegations are baseless and have no foundation,” Botomani said.

He said even the Constitutional Court which on February 3 this year nullified the May 2019 presidential election and directed that a fresh election be held within 150 days did not find DPP or any rigging wrongdoing.

“The allegations by Daudi Sulemani are childish and untrue,” Botomani said.

He said Sulemani and his youth group in the opposition should not derail the country to the dark past with its “childish antics.”

Addressing a news conference in Lilongwe to react to the allegations, DPP National Youth Director, Dyton Mussa, brushes aside claims of vote rigging by MCP and UTM.

“DPP and UDF don’t have plans to rig the elections because it is popular on the ground,” Mussa said.

He warned  MCP’s Suleiman, and Anthony Bendulo, for writing President Peter Mutharika on vote rigging allegations.

But they just rigged the last May 21 elections and the courts judged thus?

One of the reasons the 2019 presidential elections were annulled was the use of tipex. This fluid was used to erase correct data and there on replace it with fake information. Is this not rigging? If the DPP says they are popular, why are they buying ID cards from Malawians? They think they can fool Malawians by hoodwinking them to sell their birthright? You don’t force people to get loans, do you? They are busy on the ground telling people to give them ID cards in exchange for loans from MEDEF. Unfortunately officials from MEDEf have dinied sending people in… Read more »

Nonsense – DPP has rigged elections not election and that is a fact. Constitutional Court clearly and in a world acclaimed judgement ruled that the last Presidential election was rigged. Many Malawians know the masterminds of the rigging and who they learnt the rigging from. Mutharika should at this old age show loyalty to Malawi, by ensuring that he resigns and leaves Malawi forever.
