‘Fake results sheets’ Ndasauka describes MEC documents in court

One of the key witnesses for the first petitioner in the ongoing elections case, Darlington Ndasauka, on Tuesday told the Constitutional Court in Lilongwe that some of the documents with results of the May 21 presidential elections tendered by the Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) were fake.

Ndasauka, who was a team leader for UTM Party monitors, the third witness in the elections petition case after Chilima and the party’s roving monitor Miriam Gwalidi,  told the court during  re-examination by lawyer Marshal Chilenga that the documents with elections results he was cross examined were “fake”.

“It is fake documents,” said Ndasauka.

“The results of this document reflects fake because this is a fake document,” he added.

Ndasauka said features of the documents showed it had no bar codes, missed some originality from the genuine documents by MEC.

“Though this document is signed by monitors but it is fake,” he said.

Ndasauka also pointed alterations and irregularities including changes of presidential tally sheets.

But the re-examination faced a lot of objections from Attorney General (AG) Kalekeni Kaphale, who is representing MEC and Frank Mbeta, one of the lawyers representing first respondent President Peter Mutharika.

Kaphale and Mbeta argued that it was not proper for Chilima lawyers to ask Ndasauka questions which were not tackled in cross examination  in the historic elections case.

Mneawhile, Ndasauka has finished giving his evidence and a fourth witness  UTM’s Frank Nkawanga is next to take the witness stand.

Chilima and Malawi Congress Party (MCP) president Lazarus Chakwera are seeking the nullification of the presidential results in the May 21 2019 Tripartite Elections, aguing the poll was marred by irregularities.

Hearing of the case continues.

THE TRUTH OF THE MATTER IS FATTANI PRINTERS PRINTED FAKE BALLOT PAPERS FOR DPP.. THE DUBAI PRINTER PRINTED BALLOT PAPERS WHICH HAD UNSEEN SECURITY FEATURES THAT COULD ONLY BE IDENTIFIED BY THE PRINTER BECAUSE ITS A SECRET SO THAT IN CASE OF ANYTHING THEY CAN EASILY IDENTIFY THE DOCUMENTS. UNFORTUNATELY FATTANI COULD NOT MATCH THE SECURITY FEATURES AND ENDED UP MESSING THE WHOLE ELECTION PROCESS. ANY WAY THE GENERALITY OF THE ISSUES IS: THE ELECTIONS WILL BE DECLARED NULL AND VOID AND THUS A RERUN WILL BE ANNOUNCED. THE TRUTH BE TOLD THE ELECTION WAS DELIBERATELY MISMANAGED BY MEC AND… Read more »

The question should be, where did these fake sheets came from? Is it from the same schools which supplied tippex?

Just because Mr Ndasauka thinks it is fake doesn’t make it so. What if MEC says it is genuine? Generally the owner of the document knows best about what is fake or not. That is why fake certificates are taken to the issuing authority for confirmation. Think people

MEC organised an orientation of monitors on how both “genuine and fake” electoral documents look like and this gentleman is using the same knowledge and or information to describe what was used…………………….! I take this argument as too shallow and empty……………………….!

MEC is a culprit and you expect them to come out clean on this issue by identifying the fake and original here……..it will be committing suicide!

Did you read the article? He explained the features that made the document fake. It’s just like money or most official government documents. They have seals or watermarks for identification. I guess you lack common sense. After all, Kaphale did not defend the document as being real which means he knows the truth about the fake document.
