The United Nations (UN) General Secretary António Guterres has called upon Malawians to uphold the rule of law and  accept the verdict of the presidential elections case by the Constitution Court to be delivered on Monday, February 3 2020.

The UN Chief Guterres made the appeal through his spokesperson Stephane Dujarric.

He said Malawians should continue upholding the rule of law and peace as they wait for judgement.

“The Secretary-General calls on the Malawian stakeholders to continue upholding the rule of law and promoting peace, unity and stability in the larger interest of the people,” said Dujarric in a brief statement posted on UN official website.

He also called upon political parties leaders in the country to continue sending message of peace to their supporters.

Meanwhile, security agencies in the country have strengthened security in major cities of the country ahead of the Monday ruling.

Oppositions Malawi Congress Party (MCP) and UTM Party filed a petition to court seeking the nullification of 21 May 2019 Presidential elections.

MEC declared Mutharika of DPP winner of the presidential race with 1 940 709 votes or 38.57 percent. He was trailed by Chakwera with 1 781 740 votes (35.41 percent) while Saulos Chilima of UTM Party came third with 1 018 369 votes or 20.24 percent and ahead of four other candidates.

Chilima and Chakwera filed a petition in the Constitutional Court seeking nullification of the May 21 2019 presidential election results. They cite alleged flaws in the results management process as a key factor for their case.

There been fevered fears that the Constitutional Court judgement on the presidential elections nullification petition could lead to more violence in the country

These caucasians take Africans as fools. They entertain Trump and his “CULT” have an impeachment trial without witnesses. There’s growing nationalism and right wing politics in western Europe, Nigerians and their west west African counterparts are perishing in the Mediterranean Sea in search of better life in Europe yet these crazy mzungus have the audacity of finding it MORALLY RIGHT to lecture us about tolerance and good governance. HYPOCRISY at its BEST!!!

Now that the excitement of Mpinganjira’s arrest has evaporated, at least for me, I now feel sorry for a man who started humbly and rose to prominence over such a short time. His fame has been damaged irreparably. Left alone, he would have continued making a mark on Malawi and contributing to the country’s development. However, because of greed induced by DPP, he finds himself in the situation he is now. I personally don’t think he would have on his own bothered to buy MSB but because DPP could not freely use the bank for the party’s benefit, he was… Read more »

Get the Wisdom of Kamuzu Banda who humbly and amicably accepted the defeat. The Fate of Malawi was in his hands. He could have easily rejected the outcome of the Referendum and put his Solders and the Mighty Young Pioneerss in control. Infact his Hand Crappers advised him to reject the results. But being a Statesman and patriotic Malawian he chose to accept. What an excellent example the Ngwazi had set that these current power hungry leaders should emulate. GOG BLESS MALAWI

Now that we know. The next step is to push for an expedited fresh election. We have already lost a full year that would have been used in development. At the same time the criminals at MEC and MRA have been plundering in a big way. For them it should be pay back time.

Ndiye? Ife zitikhuze? APM knows how to bring peace to Malawi but he doesn’t want to do it. Either resign or treat all Malawians equally. Simple!
