FND wants Mtambo to step down at poll monitoring body Mesn

A pro-Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) led government civil society organization has asked a fierce rights activist and government critic Timothy Mtambo to step down at Malawi Electoral Support Network (Mesn).

Mtambo: Under fire from pro-government grouping FND

Forum for National Development (FND) accuses Mtambo, a board member of Mesn, of signing a report of private voter tabulation soon after the May 21 elections.

The report, among others, puts President Peter Mutharika as winner of the presidential election and that the election was transparent and inclusive.

“By signing this document with fellow board members, it indicates that you were in agreement with the findings of this report and what it represents.

“We have not heard anything to the contrary from you, Sir or you’re disputing the contents of this report from Mesn, nor any indication that you were forced to sign this document,” says the letter signed by Bright Kampaundi and Fyson Chozi  of FND.

The letter then acuses Mtambo of double standards; of leading the anti-Jane Ansah protests and of agreeing with the Mesn report.

“This act smacks of dishonesty on your part,” says the letter.

Mtambo was not available when sought to have his comment.

According to the FND, Mtambo silence on signing a report of the Private Voter Tabulation (PVT) titled ‘MESN Verification of the Presidential Results 2019 Tripartite Election’ is mind boggling.

FND has been writing statements backing the DPP administration since 2014.

The grouping  was also vocal backing Joyce Banda and her administration between 2012 and 2014.

Botoman, Mbwiye, Favour of Yahweh, Namalila and Njoka Zimba you guys I think you are not Malawians by the way, and if you are Malawians you have dead souls, if you are the ones who taking part in rigging with your Tippex God is watching, and you can’t run away with your dirty things you did to fellow Malawians, it is true that evil has time to play their games then has a time to give up and remember always Devil win first then lose at last lace.Peter Munthalika has never won before people knows about it.

Mtambo, Mayaya and the whole lot of these guys need to find proper employment not make a iiving out destroying their country because they get paid to do so. As of now it is very unfair and stupid to keep demonstrations on when the issue is in court. What if the court finds there was no evidence that MEC did anything wrong? The judgement could go either way. What Mtambo, Maya, chakwera and Chilima should know is that there are people who did not cast a vote for Chilima or Chakwera. I voted Atupele, he lost and I am home… Read more »

Mtambo me and me only is going to gun you down wait your day is coming. Am fed up with your stupid acts. We have been too foolish. Have made up my mind. Am going to gun you down. You are stupid. If you are a fundamentalist am one of them too. To which school did you go? You think ophunzira ndiwe wekha? Take care. We know you are pushing agendas of other pipo. But malawi has always been quiet.

Mtambo thinks he knows better. A day is waiting ahead for him. He is the agent of the devil. I don’t think he loves the nation at all. He want to destroy, kill and rob the nation of better things ahead. But the day is coming, when things will change and the voice of Mtambo will disappear forever.

The problem is those who are calling Mtambo to resign have no brain. Signing of report does not mean u have closed your mouth. More over it was not Mtambo who had a last say on who has won and who has not . We are talking of Tipex here not who lost and who won . So u mean just coz the CJ is the one who sworn APM then the matter can not go to court coz by swearing APM is interpreted as agreeing to say votes were fair? Mtambo was fulfiling his obligation as a member. Therefore… Read more »

You have lost brains brother,one person can not do two things at once as senior as Mtambo is to both sides and this lacked his obligation to the Nation. Dont just back useless things happening simply because you are on the loosing side but put things right as they are appearing. You are not a genuine Malawian may be you came here as Mtambo himself .Please watch out!! All you have said is useless and brainless with MADNESS.

Doesn’t matter whether FND is pro DPP or not but the choice is clear and simple: either Mtambo says he was coerced to sign the MESN document, resigns from MESN or he stops organising the demonstrations. By signing for the MESN document which says the election result was accurate and then organising demonstrations against that he agreed to be correct is mind boggling.
