Police besiege Blantyre as Ansah makes first public appearance

Malawi Police have literally besieged the commercial business district of Blantyre as the embattled Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) Jane Ansah chairperson makes her first public appearance since she announced the highly disputed May 21 polls.

Gun totting police officers are all over the CBD area, in what is seen as an attempt to thwart any group which might wish to protest against Ansah.

Ansah is attending a high level Sadc election commissions meeting.

There are at least 40 police officers at Mount Soche Hotel, the venue of the conference with the law enforcers taking over the manning of the gates at the hotel.

Vice president Everton Chimulirenji has opened the conference but Malawi Congress Party (MCP) and UTM described the decision by MEC to host the conference when the opposition are disputing its outcome as insensitive.

“They should have avoided this, Malawians are very angry now. What is happening in the country is contrary to what MEC wants to portray,” said MCP spokesperson Maurice Munthali.

UTM spokesperson Dr. Joseph Chidanti Malunga said Ansah and other MEC officials should have avoided appearing in public before the Constitutional Court pronounces its verdict.

Ansah looked composed and calm throughout the opening session.

Well said case is in court and it is not a criminal case whereby one is put on remand. Jane Ansa has rights too she can not be forced to resign .
Mtambo speaks with provocative words to stir anger in people . Not good for a leader.
Lets wait till tomorrow .

Mtambo and company should keep their nosense in Lilongwe and northern region. We dont need your useless demonstrations because we are busy doing business to fend for our families while you are eating money from gay movement. You will regret the day you will come to Balantyre more also with the nosense you have been saying about stadia

Now tell me. Which “darling of the people” president would condone throngs of police officers besieging the city like we saw today? This can only happen to one running away from his shadow.
