Mbeta delves into Suleman’s qualifications,  professional IT competence

Lawyer  Frank Mbeta representing  President Peter Mutharika who is the first respondent in the ongoing presidential elections nullification petition hearing on Wednesday morning started cross examining  Daud Suleman, who is the sixth witness for second petitioner and Malawi Congress Party (MCP) president Lazarus Chakwera, centering much on his qualifications and professional competence.

Mbeta: Lawyer for Mutharika spent time trying to prove to the court that Suleman was not a competent IT expert

Mbeta touched on claims by Suleman, an information technology expert  (IT), that he was the first Malawian to pass the CISCO examinations in Malawi and that he has graduated from a junior to a top notch IT expert in the field.

However, Suleman agreed to the notion that he was not the first Malawian  to pass the examinations but that he was the first Malawian to do so in examinations written in the country.

Mbeta cited an example of when Suleman worked with NBS Bank in upgrading their IT system where he was heading all the process.

He alleged that after completing the work, they system was down which prompted the Reserve Bank of Malawi to fine NBS  Bank K50 million to which Suleman answered that he was not aware of the development.

“Are you aware that after that system failure, it was your junior who came to work on it?” asked Mbeta.

‘Not quiet true with a big explaination,” answered Suleman.

However, the questioning line was protested by MCP lawyer Pempho Likongwe who felt that it was against NBS’s privacy and also against the respondent’s questioning check list that was filed before the court.

Mbeta argued that he was still within his frame because everything that happened with NBS bank was in the public domain and that his questioning on Suleman’s professional competency was also within his checklist, which the court through president judge Heally Potani agreed but cautioned the lawyer to be within his lane.

Suleman has portrayed that the Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) Result Management System (RMS) was compromised and accessed by ‘ghost’ administrators.

In the case, Chakwera alongside first petitioner and UTM Party president Saulos Chilima are seeking nullification of the presidential election results in the May 21 2019 Tripartite Elections and an order for a rerun.

The court earlier projected that it would conclude hearing the case by December 6 and that the judges would deliver their verdict within 45 days from the date.

My question to MEC team is: Did the ghost (mzukwa) really enter into the RMS? Malawians need an answer. whether Daud is qualified or not its nothing to Malawians. Unqualified citizens are helping the police to catch thieves in Malawi, so unqualified Daud has exposed MEC (Wamisala anaona nkhondo). Just convince the Malawians that the Mzukwa was just a trojan.

Kaphale and Mbeta, shame on you! You very well know that you’re defending thieves, election were rigged, jane ansah and all commissioners pocketed a lot of money, that much you know. You’ve both committed a sin that God will never forgive you! Thank God he is watching and sooner very soon, freedom is coming!!!

The truth shall always set you free. Listening from both parties it is evident that nobody is honest. Even Sulemani himself is not honest enough in his yes or no responses.

Inu kuyambira kale ndinu achitsiru amunthu moreover umunthu mulibe.How many court cases has Frank Mbeta lost,so many.Does it mean that he is no a qualified lawyer?I think all DPP supporters are confused.And let me just tell you this,a well patriotic and well educated person can not support a government or party that steals peoples rights of voting who to govern them but it takes fools like you JOLOZA to do so.

I have just noted that all those who are against Ruling Party are assuming that MCP is gaining ground but its outside the box kkkk.Suleman has really demonstrated that he is more than a GOAT.Komadi mukumva pheni inuyooo.a Pempho Likongwe mpaka kufuna kukomoka kuteteza Suleman kkk

From what I have learnt from this case is that anyone can be a lawyers. In fact chiefs in the village are better “lawyers” than what some of these so called “learned” fellows
