MCP candidate poll challenge case adjourns for judgment

A case in which a Malawi Congress Party (MCP) parliamentary candidate is challenging the results in Mangochi Monkey Bay was adjourned Thursday waiting for judgment.

Kazembe (r) waiting for judgement

The case has sent shivers in the opposition Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) which lost all the seats in the recent court sanctioned by-elections.

The High Court in Blantyre is expected to deliver its judgment in the case Gerald Kazembe is challenging the victory of Ralph Jooma of DPP  in the 2019 parliamentary race.

Presiding Judge Justice Jack N’riva has also ruled that both petitioners and defendants make their final written submissions within 14 days.

Two final witnesses were cross-examined on Thursday to conclude the case.

Ralph Jooma ulimbe mtima because no matter what, the Judges are in the hands of Tonse Alliance. It is obvious the Judge will rule in favour of Gerlad Kazembe as has been the case with Kasaila and Mcheka Chilenje . What Malawians fail to understand is that the same MEC that messed up the presidential election is looked as credible when the rest of the MPs and President Chakwera are in their positions but they are not credible when they put DPP MPs with their president Peter in positions. Aluandika and his crew are still at MEC.

Alimbe mtima ndi chiyani? UDF ku Chikwawa sinatengenso mpando uja? Mcheka Chilenje ndi mzake Kasaila anabela nde ngati lingagamule kuti ku Mangochi Monkeybay chisankho sichinayende bwino, by election iyende basi owina weniweni azadziwike. Fresh Presidential elections anachitika DPP ili pa mpando nde musati nyo nyo nyo apa ngati muli ndi nzeru.

That time they were doing hand methods to favour some certain individuals and now its total transparent.We all know that Ralph Jooma lost the elections.I am from Monkey-Bay and i don’t believe in hand methods type of putting someone on the seat.
