Trapence: Vows to hodl anti-Ansah demos

During a news conference in Lilongwe on Monday, HRDC leader Gift Trapence told journalists that the impunity and arrogance being displayed by Ansah and her team cannnot go unchallenged.

Apart from the street ptotests, HRDC said they are engaging their lawyers to interpret the laws concerning the legality of MEC commissioners’ tenure.

“The level of impunity and arrogance being shown by MEC commissioners  cannot be termed by one strategy,” he said.

HDRC central region coordinator Billy Mayaya noted that, despite the Covid-19 pandemic, it is far more important for the country to express themselves against MEC’s continued arrogance.

“Of course, are concerned about Covid-19 but we are also concerned about the state of constitutionalism in Malawi and the rule of law which are currently being severely undermined by MEC under Jane Ansah.,” he said.

Although HRDC will hold demos against Ansah, she has refused to resign.

It’s more than too much from HRDC. It’s time to face the music. You guys have put Malawi at standstill in the name of fighting for the rights of ppl. Hey mother Malawi! Evil spirit is at its best but its enough. Judiciary is putting Malawi at standstill just to show their superiority. Remember the president is the man in charge of you guys. One day is one day. Healey Potani, Reason Mwadiwa whatever your name is, Mike Tembo, Ivy Kamanga and Madise. Don’t take us for granted. Doooon’t

The problem with MEC and APM is that they don’t know what the word incompetence means. They want the court to interpret it in full that in means you are not fit to perform your duties as such you can not conduct another election that is you can not continue to be MEC Commissioners and Chair.

Justice Jane Ansah analumbira kuti agwira ntchito motsatira malamulo . Analonjeza dziko kuti court ikazapeza kuti sanayendese bwino chisankho iwo atula pansi udindo wao . Ngati sakutero ndie tiwadalire kuti amanena zoona?. After all she must be stipped of her tittle of being a judge.

Can’t Jane Ansah see that APM is making a fool of her and damaging her CV/Legacy in the process? It beats me to think she is a Supreme Court of Appeal judge. We know it’s APM speaking whenever she opens her mouth.

No. Jane Ansah has great reputation as a judge. In fact, international observers said she run the tripartite elections very well and they know the courts were bribed by opposition – Chakwera and Chilima to overturn the results. That’s why the same courts have not annulled presidential and local government despite tippex being used there as well.

From what I have heard, it would seem the contract for the current commissioners and their chair, expires end of June The presidential election is slated for July 2. Peter Muthalika has been just as adamant to fire these commissioners as Jane Ansah has been about resigning. It would seem to me as though these two are cooking something up, may be far worse that trying to rig the next vote. Could it be that the MEC commissioners know that they cannot run the next vote after their contract expires and that clinging to positions is just a ploy to… Read more »

You think that you in a better place, no you are not. The suffering of a Nation does not spare anyone. Lucky for you, we will not allow your cronies to mislead us. We are taking a stand. We are not giving up.

I Would Agree with this Assessment. You can not Hope for A demon to become an Angel. However Light always triumphs. Which ever way they are planning, ruin is their end.

I Would Agree with this Assessment. No One Can hope for a Demon to become an angel, going by what I have seen in the behaviour of the MEC comissioners. What ever plans they have however, ruin is their destiny wheither they know it or not, in this life and the next one. Light and truth always triumph no matter how long you may want to hide it. This is a destiny moment for Malawi.
