DPP’s Brown Mpinganjira (left), Wa Jeffrey and other top brass: Party to abide by the law

UTM Party president Saulos Chilima was the first petitioner while his Malawi Congress Party counterpart Lazarus Chakwera was the second petitioner in the case seeking nullification of the May 21, 2019 presidential election results citing irregularities, whose ruling is set for Monday, February 3 2020.

The case was being heard by a five-judge panel in the High Court in Lilongwe that was sitting as a Constitutional Court.

DPP secretary general Greselder Jeffrey said: “Our supporters are being urged to support the outcome of the court.”

She says people are at liberty to listen to the verdict either at home or at their workplace.

“ The court wanted us to give them 10 names of people who will attend the session, and we did, so everybody, if you stay at home, be home, if you work, be at work, be at your businesses, and listen to the verdict, let us be peaceful,” said Jeffrey.

Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) declared Mutharika winner of the presidential race with 1 940 709 votes or 38.57 percent. He was trailed by Chakwera with 1 781 740 votes (35.41 percent) and Chilima with 1 018 369 votes or 20.24 percent.

We need to call all men of God and meet togather first at Kamuzu Stadium, secondly at Bingu International Stadium and lastly at Mzuzu Stadium. The only solution remaining for us is HUMBLE ourselves… Read more »

Nonsense and disingenuous because in the first place the nation should have been spared having to endure the consequences of DPP rigging the elections. Knowing APM and gang that needs his protection if the verdict is against APM they will not only appeal but engage in violence.

As the president of the country, Peter Mutharika should have addressed and appealed to the citizens of Malawi to remain calm and maintain peace, if at all there is peace in Malawi. Kodi ndi president otani uyu?
