Supreme Court sets March 11 for Malawi election case appeal: 7 judges panel 

Officials at the Supreme Court of Appeal have set the date for the hearing of the high profile presidential election case following a challenge on the Constitutional Court ruling by President Peter Mutharika and Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC).

Chief Justice Andrew Nyirenda to chair the panel

According to the registrar of the court Agnes Patemba the hearing will take place on March 11, 2020, just two months before May 19, 2020, date for the fresh election.

A panel of seven judges, led by the chief Justice Andrew Nyirenda will hear the case.

Other judges are Justice Edward Twea, Justice Anaclet Chipeta, Justice Anthony Kamanga, Justice Dustain Mwaungulu and Justice Frank Kapanda and Justice Mzikamanda.

President  Mutharika and MEC have filed several grounds against the Constitutional Court ruling which annulled the May 21 presidential election and ordered a fresh election.

The Constitutional Court cited irregularities and anomalies which were so widespread, systematic and grave that the outcome of the results had been seriously compromised.

He just allowed it to hoodwink the judges but practically, he has not. He is afraid he would be filed for contept of court. Why is he sidelining and not delegating him duties pertaining to the VP’s Office? This is leadership… Read more »

So far, so good. Recent events have restored some fiath in Malawi’s democracy. Mutharika has accepted the judgement of the Constitutional Court and has restored Chilima to the VP position and alowed the new poll. This would not have happened under Bingu who was always too proud to accept correction.. DPP Cadets’ violence has been kept to a minimum, which would not have taken place under Bakili’s UDF. The leading politicians are forming sensible coalitons, not break-away splinter-parties destined to oblivion, and acknowledging that not everyone can be a presidential candidate this time. Will this good sense and patriotic spirit… Read more »

Am yao by tribe, I have been to the north leaved with them, they have their own lazy crop just like the rest, but when the few manage to get an opportunity they make the best out of it.
