Opposition fails to provide monitors for voter registration

Poll managers, the Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) has called on the opposition to provide monitors for the ongoing voter registration exercise to give the exercise credibility.

Voter registration in progress

MEC chairperson Jane Ansah said this on Monday in Thyolo where she visited four centres at the start of phase five of the registration exercise where she found ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) and main opposition Malawi Congress Party (MCP) monitors only.

“This has been the case in all the registration crntres since we started the registration exercise. Only the DPP and MCP have sent monitors for the exercise, this is not good at all. We want all political parties which want to take part in the elections to send their monitors,” said Ansah.

Phase five of the registration exercise started on Sunday Neno, Balaka, Mulanje, Thyolo, Phalombe and Luchenza.

Ansah said it was imperative for the political parties to send the monitors to monitor how the registration exercise was going on to avoid suspicions and give credibility to the whole exercise.

In an earlier interview, United Democratic Front  (UDF) spokesperson Ken Ndanga said the party was busy with the preparations for its party elective convention and now it is over the party would now send the monitors.

United Transformation Movement spokesperson Dr. Joseph Chidanti Maluga said the movement wanted to register as a party first before sending the monitors to the voter registration centres.

Ansah said the has been high turn up on the first days of the registration exercise in Thyolo and Mulanje.

Please understand that UTM is a movement. There is no true agenda for those in the movement. It’s a group of disgruntled individuals fighting from different angles for various motives. As for Chilima, he just want rule and frustrate Mutharika because he was not elected as president of DPP. As for Carrista it’s all a family affair and so too the lady that was arrested at the airport. As for Kambala it’s because he is bitter with foreign contractors winning jobs. As for Manganya he just joined the group but he will soon be a frustrated fellow- thats for real.… Read more »

Amkolo, sometimes when you don’t know something, it is better to shut up than showing your ignorance to the public. It seems you are yet to fully complehend what it takes to have a clean, fair and credible election. Vuto lake lokhala cadet wa kachipani kopanda msanamila zokhazikika ndi limeneli. Tiye nazoni, tiwona kuti muthela pati.

The materials which were used to make Rev Chakwera’s brain is the same material used to make the brain of any Pope at Vatican. If the brain of Chakwera will naturally stop working when he is 80 years as others are saying, it is common knowledge that this will also apply to the Pontif. His brain is not made of special material. Whether the leader is spiritual or political the work of the brain at a certain period will decline in its thinking power.

I wonder why some people think this lucifer SKC accompanied by his jezebels like Callistas are a force to reckon with. No wonder they don’t know that they are commiting a very dangerous sin. That sin of pride. Number one sin that led to the fall of lucifer. They are elevating themselves above everybody else. SKC thinks he is much better than anyone else including his bwana on this land. He has ever behaved like this ever since. The guy has never been DPP. What he has been waiting for never came. Akuona kuchedwa. You have ever observed him not… Read more »

He has made a choice in life. Why are you bothered? You have your own person to support. If People in 1993 did not challenge HKB things could have not been said. What you are saying about SCK was said about all other who had courage to challenge the status quo. It is not sin to challenge. As for Lucifer, he does not exist, if he does then God has a problem because Lucifer seem to be much in control of people including you than God.

I have been asked myself about UTM if it is a party, now I have the answer. They don’t have even monitors but alot of noise, why barking behind the the door? And someone will be here saying only UTM is the only party that can change Malawi, why Chilima is doing this to Malawians who are already starving looking for good leadership? They were supposed to register before doing all what the are doing, this to me means these are the DPP team that’s why they have not yet registered, these people a mission, their mission is to destroy… Read more »
