MCP key witness Suleman gets standing ovation: Finishes examination-in-chief in Malawi poll case

Malawi Congress Party (MCP) celebrated sixth witness Daudi Suleman, an IT expert.  has received a rare standing ovation from people as he stepped down from the Constitutional Court in the landmark election case after his examination-in-chief.

Suleman has exposed that 4 846 tally sheet results were approved by a ghost user.

Joyous people ululated and escorted  the witness to second petitioner Lazarus Chakwera to his vehicle after adjournment following his impressive evidence in the court.

This was after Suleman finished  demonstrating before the panel of five judges hearing the elections case, how Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) computerised election result management system (RMS) was allegedly breached by a ‘ghost’ operator to change the results of the presidential elections in favour of incumbent Peter Mutharika.

In his simulation, Suleman exposed 4846 tally sheet results which he said were approved by a “ghost user”.

Chakwera’s lead lawyer Modecai Msisha said Suleman had demonstrated clearly how the elections were manipulated, saying the demonstration was “very firm and specific” on its evidence.

“The witness has been able to show how the system would have been manipulated to create results that do not match the reality. He has demonstrated step-by-step what happens with a database and how computer systems keep trails of whatever has happened in the system,” said Msisha.

He further said the demonstration and simulation by Suleman has enabled them to establish a lot of things that may have gone wrong during the whole electoral process.

“The demonstration is specific and firm that the system was tampered with,”” he added.

Attorney General Kalekeni Kaphale, who is representing MEC, said MEC’s legal team  is set to start cross-examining Suleman in the afternoon.

Kaphale pleaded for the 3pm time for the cross examination, saying he needed more time to consult electoral body’s IT experts.

MEC declared President Peter Mutharika of DPP winner of the presidential race with 1 940 709 votes or 38.57 percent. He was trailed by Chakwera with 1 781 740 votes (35.41 percent) while Saulos Chilima of UTM Party came third with 1 018 369 votes or 20.24 percent and ahead of four other candidates.

Chilima and Chakwera are seeking nullification of the results over alleged irregularities. The Constitutional Court is currently hearing the case.

Suleman has shown how rigging WOULD have been done NOT how it was done. Poor MCP and UTM supporters are in jubilation.

Koma oChakwera ndi “HARDtalk” Chilima, a MCP ndi UTM, ndi makape basi: Ovation for Suleman as if his performance was a political one? Immaturity.
Court cases are complicated beasts; and we await for vigorous cross examination by Kaphale et al.
The aggrieved: Hold your horses!

Suleman is misleading and confusing MCP. Earlier he said MEC announced results for only 3677 centres out of 5002. Later, He said MEC did not approve results of 4846 centres of the 5002 centres that it announced. The figures simply don’t add up. Can somebody who has AG contacts pass on this observation to ask Suleman to clarify this glaring discrepancy.

Sulemani nsana wawonekela pamwamba. He failed to produce evidence on how the so called mzukwa manipulated individual votes

Daft thinking:
– Kaphale did not dispute presence of mzukwa in the system. So why should we have mzukwa approving results?

– Suleiman’s argument is that approvals/processes were done in milliseconds when it shouldn’t.
