North Malawi celebrates ConCourt ruling to cancel Mutharika’s ‘Tipp-Ex’ win

Thousands of people in the northern region Monday night celebrated the constitutional court verdict on the 2019 presidential election case which decreed that fresh elections be held in the next 150 days, making the southern African nation only the second on the continent since Kenya in 2017 to order a rerun of a national vote.

Former vice president Khumbo Kachali who is working with MCP delighted with the electoral justice 

The northern region which, largely, voted for the new UTM Party and the Malawi Congress Party (MCP) hopes for a new government apart from the governing Democratic Progressive Party (DPP).

Among others, the northern region is not comfortable with the DPP for the quota system which they argue is racist and discriminatory.

In Mzuzu, youths in various locations especially Chibavi, Zolozolo and Mchengautuba chanted anti-government and Jane Ansah songs.

In random interviews, the youths said “peace has now come back to Mzuzu” as well as to the region.

“We will not sleep today. We can now see peace and a bright future. We shall have a president of our own choice and not an imposed one as it was before. Congrats to our five Judges. They can spend their holidays here in Mzuzu without security guards,” said Fumbani Chirwa, a resident of Zolozolo.

In Karonga, youths led by youth activist, Steven Simsokwe, who is also councilor for Chilanga Ward said they were excited.

In a telephone interview with Nyasa Times in the wee hours of Tuesday, Simsokwe who led the youths to the district police station, calling upon all business operators who left because of protests to come back.

“Karonga is back to normal business. Police will be our friend now. Development is now what we want,”  he said.

Residents of Rumphi also were seen going about the district’s streets and beer halls excitedly.

The five Judges nullified the 2019 presidential elections citing that the electoral body failed to manage the elections properly  and that the elections had been marred by “massive” poll irregularities, including white correction fluid  – Tippezx-  used to alter results.

The court ordered another vote to be held within 150 days, a boost to the opposition leaders Lazarus Chakwera and Saulos Chilima who mounted the legal challenge.

Those were paid up casual workers hired by the ex-reverend and his for-convenience mate Arafat Zeze and these casual workers do not represent any political force to recogn with. Bring the all-atumbuka party in the coming presidential elections and we show you the meaning of this statement.

Kuswa Kuswa doesnt know anything. MCP wasn’t founded by Tumbukas. It was founded by Tongas from Nkhata. Bay. Your problem is darkness. Even though you have had president but you are still in darkness.

They are one and same. Northerners. No splitting the hair. Did EMUSIPI not incarcerate late Kadonaphani? Was aBhwanha Timbiri not beaten up by EMUSIPI henchmen at a convention? Was Kanyama Chiume not demonized and driven into exile? If you have no answers to these questions, you are a brainless idiot not worth debating with

Where is the hatred in saying it as it is? Do you prefer to gloss-over and ignore important facts?

Of course no problem with the ruling. Just to say atumbuka are just too myopic. Ayiwala kuti MCP introduced the quota system and victimized all of them. In fact achewa otuwawa anaba chipanichi kuchokera kwa atumbuka, chased all of them into exile, detained some of the folk and fed others to crocodiles. Kupusa atumbuka.

That’s what ignited the Rwanda/Tutsi tribal war. Just wait and see.
Check yourself, whatever your real name is, the names in the lime light now are Chimulilenji, Chitsakamile, Mpinganjira, Kaphale, Ansah, Mutharika. All stupid names. Palibepo dzina la wakumpoto apa.

Point of correction: 1) Tongas started the MCP, not Tumbukas. 2) The MCP of today is a rebranded party born after the Referendum. 3) The Quota system cannot be Racist since it applies to every tribe in the country.
