MEC disqualifies UDF parliamentary candidate over ‘fake’ MSCE

Pollster, the Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) has disqualified a United Democratic Front (UDF) parliamentary candidate for Blantyre north east for presenting a fake Malawi School Certificate of Education.

Mwafulirwa: Maneb verified the certificate was fake 

MEC spokesperson Sangwani Mwafulirwa has confirmed that Bakali Osman presented the fake certificate to dodge a proficiency test of reading and speaking English.

“We received a complaint that Mr. Osman presented a fake MSCE certificate so we presented the certificate to Maneb who confirmed that the certificate was indeed fake,” said Mwafulirwa.

Mwafulirwa said the commission is still investigating other candidates.

“We will disqualify any candidate who flouts the laws and rules even a day before the election,” said Mwafulirwa.

The MEC publicist said there will be no substitution for the party for the disqualified candidate.

There was no immediate comment from Osman and UDF.
