I initially had a negative impression that my vote never count. With the way the 2019 elections were conducted I had a negative mind with MEC that it decides who the winner should be.

But with the way Dr Chifundo Kachale manned the 2020 elections it has restored my trust and confidence in not just me but the whole Malawi at large.

Bravo Dr Chifundo Kachale, bravo our hard fought democracy!!!

Man of integrity Dr Kachale, this is how an election should be run. Meanwhile the record of the annulled 2019 election has not yet been submitted to parliament, when it was asked for in court, it just could not be produced. And the country has let the woman who presided over that election to fly out of the country!
