Ex-Malawi military officer Mvula drops from presidential race: Endorses Chakwera, blasts MEC

Independent presidential aspirant Phunziro Mvula, a former military officer announced  before presenting his nomination papers to Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) that he has dropped from the race and endorsed Malawi Congress Party (MCP) president Lazarus Chakwera and his running mate  UTM Party president Saulos Chilima.

Phunziro Mvula announced his withdraw  because  he doesn’t trust the current Malawi Electoral Commission but endorsed Chakwera.

Mvula, who claims to have fulfilled all the necessary requirements, said he has also withdrawn as he doesn’t trust the current electoral body.

He said in an interview that the Jane Ansah led Commission has become a shield for protecting the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP)  “so that it can continue to oppress Malawians, sow the seeds of nepotism, tribalism, regionalism and plundering of the resources collected from our taxes.”

Mvula, a businessman, said: “In order for a credible Electoral Commission to exist, there must be a credible Chairperson and trustworthy commissioners who must inspire the hope that they can manage the elections in a credible manner.”

He accused MEC of being in “an evil partnership with the DPP”   registering young children in order to rig the fresh presidential elections.

Flamboyant Mvula said he is endorsing Chakwera and Chilima ticket.

“I am now convinced that the country has a chance to rise again through the leadership of Dr Lazarus Chakwera. I have faith that his vision is sufficient for every Malawian include me, my family, my supporters and the Lomwe belt poor people who are just being used by the DPP,” he said.

Meanwhile, another aspirant Khwechani Nkhoma has also withdrawn from the race.

It is time for electoral laws to be revisited so that chamber smokers or people with mental challenges e.g. Ras Chikomeni Chirwa, Swila, Mvula etc.should not waste our time and resources.

Did u hear that APM withdrew the race and why calling him a cartoon? Leave him alone he is with us as his supporters as is the case with you supporting other parties. So avoid silly thinking that you go to voting day alone we are there and will meet there

Kkkkkkkk koma Phunziro Mvula,, mpaka.munafika poima.nawo.u.president ? Koma yeah, ma ambition.anu munawaponyera kokuya phiri kkkkkkkkk. Tell.these people the truth why you left the army kkkkkkkkk. Phunziro, I am.not saying you did anything wrong to contest as president . It’s your right, you can do wjatever your rights allow you to. But personally i know you as someone who’s always bitter and never respects the authities you are under, including the army. So never say bad things about Lomwes, or any tribe in Malawi. In fact not all Lomwes are DPP. But whether is a Lomwe, Chewa, Nkhonde, Ngoni, Tumbuka, Yao,… Read more »

Yes you will see what God does becuse you that APM has no support lets wait and see. Remember if all 5002 polling centres were not verified it means APM was part of it and the court ruled that the irregularities had impact on each and every candidate APM inclusive that is why you could see Saulos having additional votes, APM and Lazarus the same so no matter how mungamuphe APM koma dziwani uyo akali moyo and thats what God does ppo mukhoza kuti aluze koma if God chose him before he was born then he will be reelected.

Truth be told, this Phunziro guy never had any intentions of standing in the first place. He was just sent by Chakwera and Chilima as their morale booster. Anyway, he is just another citizen who has every right to state his opinion in a democratic society.
