Gwalidi insists she found DPP, MEC altering results of Malawi presidential elections

During the re-examination by lawyers representing first petitioner Saulos Chilima, UTM Party roving monitor Mirriam Gwalidi, one of the key witnesses in the historic presidential elections petitions case, on Thursday maintained her stand that presidential election results were being manipulated and that she had an eye witness account of Ndirande Matope polling centre.

Miriam Gwalidi has been steadfast in her testimony

Gwalidi, who supported Chilima’s petition to have the results nullified and an order for a rerun, told the Constitutional Court in Lilongwe during re-examination by Chilima’s lawyer Bright Theu that she found  a Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) monitor and Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) presiding officers altering polling results sheets.

Composed in the witness box, Gwalidi demonstrated how wrong calculations contributed to the illeguralities and illegalities in the May 21 presidential election in favour of President Peter Mutharika.

After Chilima’s lawyers finish re-examining Gwalidi, the next witness for Chilima, Darlington Ndasauka, should be set to take to the witness stand.

The elections case is being heard by a panel of five judges, Healey Potani, Mike Tembo, Dingiswayo Madise, Redson Kapindu and Ivy Kamanga.

The case has Chilima, who is the country’s immediate-past vice-president, as the first petitioner and Malawi Congress Party (MCP) president Lazarus Chakwera as the second petitioner.

Mutharika of the governing DPP, in his capacity as the declared winner, is the first respondent with MEC as the second respondent.

The petitioners contend that Mutharika “won a fraudulent election” fraught with irregularities, including alleged tampering with election results sheets through correction fluid, popularly known as Tippex.

I hope she brought evidence to the court, I can also say whatever about whoever, what matters is the evidence of which sanapitise. Hard cold evidence is key in court not kulubwalubwa

Ndiye pamafunika mboni za konse, kovotera konse mdziko muno otherwise winaso abwera mawa kuti ineso anandibera. Izi kukhala ngati ndi nthano ndithu. Ife timadziwa mulandu ya kwa mfumu pasi pa mtengo.

Whether it was only in Blantyre but what matters most is about the stolen votes.Some witnesses will also come up to where they were during voting time if you don’t know

An eye witness will never be speculator, what Gwalidi is saying is what she saw, so much that you can’t stop her. Go ahead Gwalidi, ukamaliza ndikubeleka, after all the AG has been told not to shift the goal .

The matter of fact is that Dpp is corrupt and elections were fake. Those who’s parents are in Dpp we say they raised provide food to their kids with corruption and dirty money.

What is intelligence to you? Who are supporters all the supporters of all parties? You may think Gwalidi has no case but going by what she has tendered in court is clear evidence that our elections lacked credibility. I am saying this because all the major parties have cried foul of the elections so its not an issue of only MCP & UTM but also DPP. Whatever is happening now in the aftermath of the elections is affecting all Malawians and when posting your opinions be mindful of the fact Malawi is not the same as it used to be… Read more »
