PP’s Mhone appeals against Vuwa poll case win

Nkhata Bay central losing parliamentary candidate Ralph Mhone has appealed against a High Court ruling which upheld the winning of Lands and Housing minister Symon Vuwa Kaunda in the parliamentary race.

Mhone: Appeals against Vuwa Kaunda’s poll victory

Court documents indicate that Mhone, opposition People’s Party (PP) vice president for the north, has filed the appeal papers on October 1 2019 through his law firm, Racane Associates.

“Take notice that the appellant, being dissatisfied with the judgement of the High Court, Mzuzu District Registry, Mzuzu delivered by Honourable Justice Ligowe doth appeal against the whole of the judgment to the Malawi Supreme Court,” says the document.

In his ruling, Ligowe said Mhone failed to provide sufficient evidence before the court, citing among other things, his monitors failed to file written complaints in logbooks provided by the Malawi Electoral Commission.

Mhone however told the court that his monitors were denied access to verify results, while others were beaten up in some centres.

I am not a lawyer, but are judges supposed to make a determination based on their opinion or on evidence tendered? In his judgement judge Ligowe said that MEC failed to provide the court with original copy of form 66. This is the form that would have given direction for judgement as duplicate copies that Vuwa and Mhone had were from the same copy but with different data on it. Judge Ligowe said in his opinion Vuwa’s copy is correct. How he came to that conclusion, in the absence of the original form, to which he acknowledged MEC did not… Read more »

Good move ada Mhone. We cannot blame the judge here, he is a human being also who wanted kuwadyera ada Kaunda. He knew that imwi ada Mhone still have the chance of winning this case, of course, through an appeal.
