The unofficial results show that Descent Chipangula is leading by 400 votes against his main rival, the ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) candidate.

The Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) is yet to make official announcement of the November 5 local government by-election in Kasungu north west constituency.

Chipangula is leading with 1489 votes against the DPP’s Nelson Maseko who has amassed 1203 votes, according to the unofficial results.

Chifford Mbewe, independent candidate got 185 votes, Shadreck Mvula, independent got 55 votes and Vincent Phiri of MMD got 119 votes.

UTM boycotted the votes on account that MEC’s credibility to conduct a free, fair and credible election is questionable because of the way it handled the May 21 polls.

I WILL OBJECT TO ALL THE COMMENTS MADE ON THIS STORY ABOUT THE DIFFERENCE IN VOTES GOTTEN BY THE MCP AND DPP CANDIDATES RESPECTIVELY. THERE IS ONE VERY IMPORTANT ELEMENT THAT YOU HAVE IGNORED TO TAKE INTO CONSIDERATION AND THAT IS PEOPLE, MCP SUPPORTERS ARE NOW DISAPPOINTED AND FED UP AS THEY KNOW THE POWER OF THEIR VOTE HAS ALWAYS BEEN AT THE MERCY OF SOME MEC FORCES.

I will love if we have a rerun so that the air should be cleared.

If DPP candidate has managed to scoop all those votes in what is labeled MCP stronghold, then it is clear that DPP is still a strong party because it is hard for MCP candidate to get even a quota of the total votes in DPP’s stronghold.

I am worried DPP is still getting votes, a good number for that matter, in the central region regardless of the hostile political environment in the centre. I am afraid if MCP would get those votes in the south. If there will be rerun I am afraid MCP will have to work even harder to get results they want. Tatiyeni tizingoona zinthuzi.
