Malawi Electoral Commission’s results sheets missing for poll case

Malawi Electoral Commission (Mec) are failing to trace results and tally sheets for a case in which three Malawi Congress Party shadow members of Parliament (MPs) in Chikwawa and Nsanje districts are challenging results of the May 21 parliamentary elections.

Lawyer Kossamu and one of his clients, Chizuzu,

Opposition Malawi Congress Party (MCP) members Kafandikhale Mandevana of Nsanje Central, Enoch Chizuzu (Nsanje North) and Foster Thipiwa (Chikwawa East) are challenging results of the parliamentary elections.

Their lawyer Wester Kossamu said since the High Court in Blantyre ordered that the electoral commission should produce all the documents it used in the elections in the three constituencies and that the case should return to court on July 29 2019, the “original tally sheets have not been disclosed and are not in custody of MEC.”

The court ordered MEC to produce original tally sheets, counterfoils, log books and register of voters ticked.

But according to the lawyer, the other documents are only partially disclosed.

During the inspection of documens at the Commission’s warehouse  which involved opening all the ballot boxes, the court could not find “key” documents.

MEC declared  Francis Kasaila, Minister of Foreign  Affairs (Democratic Progressive Party –DPP) winner of Nsanje North, Esther Mcheka-Chilenje (DPP)for Nsanje North and Sam Khumbanyiwa  (UDF) for Chikwawa East.

MY QUESTION IS: WHY ARE THE ORIGINAL RESULTS SHEETS MISSING BECAUSE WERE TOLD BY MEC THAT THE ELECTIONS WERE CERTIFIED FREE, FAIR AND CREDIBLE.

AND SHE TOLD US THAT ALL 147 MADANDOS WERE DEALT WITH ???

WHO IS HIDING THE DOCUMENTS AND FOR WHAT PURPOSE:::??? CLEAN HANDS ARE CLEAN HANDS,,,,SO MISABISE MA DOCUMENTS

JEZEBEL IN ACTION………AND SHE DIED A PAINFUL DEATH

They want the judge to nullify the results which in reality they lost so that they can have a re run…..if judges are professional enough, the one who came to court to complain must be given a the post…akhaule anyani…okuba awa…mtundu wanji wa anthu ongozolowera kuba pali ponse………kuba ndi panti ndi khamisolo yomwe includingg chitimkulu wawonso….

I believe this election was rigged in all angles ,only that other MPs didn’t have the audacity to ring the bells in time
