Law professor says govt should hire new Malawi chief elections officer

A law professor at Chancellor College of the University of Malawi has suggested that the Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) chief elections officer Sam Alufandika should be fired because he was part of the incompetent commission which courts and parliament blamed for the floppy May 21, 2019 presidential election.

Chief Elections Officer Alfandika (R): Under fire

Professor Garton Kamchezera said Alufandika was the head technical head of MEC blamed for the messy election which the courts annulled due to what they said widespread anomalies and irregularities.

“He is the technical head of MEC which has been described as incompetent, he is therefore a danger to the holding of another election,” he said.

Kamchezera also suggested that there should be reforms in the appointment of MEC commissioners, saying political parties should not be given the authority to appoint them as is the case now.

Parliament’s Public Appointments Committee recommended that Alufandika be removed from office and the clerk of parliament Fiona Kalemba temporarily act in his place until the elections are held and a new CEO is hired.

Alufandika refused to comment on the matter.

Eh Tasiyana you must be a DPP cadet. The prof is right while your argument borders on stupidity. Alfandika was part of the syndicate in the vote rigging so leaving him at MEC will perpetuate criminal behavior at MEC. He should be removed

Sincerely, throughout the 2019 court election hearing Alufandika was found to be the brains behind all the bad decisions that made the courts (both ConCourt and Supreme) to declare that the election should be redone. As such I strongly agree with Professor Kamchezera that Alufandika should honourably be told to pack and go! Please don’t give him chance to decide on this, fire him! The guy is too dangerous to the nation! Any repeat of what he engineered will put the nation on fire! Chonde “Mphechepeche mwa njomvu zamadutsamo kawiri!” DPP as a party have many things to do and… Read more »

The problem with Kamchedzera is that he is too much MCP. He is never objective. He has never questioned MCP actions.
