It’s Chakwera turn to testify in Malawi presidential poll case

Main opposition Malawi Congress Party (MCP) president Lazarus Chakwera is Thursday morning expected to take to the Constitutional Court witness box for the first time since he dragged the Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) over allegations of vote rigging and result manipulation in the presidential election.

Chakwera: Time to be in the witness box

Chakwera now faces questions from the legal teams of MEC whose lead lawyer is Kalekeni Kaphale and President Peter Mutharika legal team led by Frank Mbeta.

Chakwera was supposed to start giving his evidence on Monday on how the presidential election results were manipulated in favour of Mutharika but the court faced legal challenges as MCP lawyers made seven applications.

Lead lawyer for Chakwera in the case Mordecai Msiska said following the court ruling on the applications, the case will now speed up.

The MCP lawyers also objected to Chakwera being examined on his character and will not be cross examined on sworn statements by other witnesses, among others.
