UTM acusses DPP of bastardizing MEC to rig Malawi fresh polls

UTM Party has added its voice to Malawi Congress Party (MCP) claims that  the governing Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) together with Malawi Electoral Commission and National Registration Bureau (NRB)  are orchestrating rigging acts for fresh presidential elections.

UTM publicity secretary Joseph Chidanti Malunga  (R) says the DPP)together with Malawi Electoral Commission and National Registration Bureau have embarked on a rigging scheme through registering minors.

Addressing journalists in Blantyre on Saturday, UTM publicity secretary Joseph Chidanti Malunga said  one of the  rigging scheme  is through registering minors.

Flanked by  Noel Masangwi, the party’s patron, Steve Mikaya, member of Parliament for Blantyre City West, who is also the party’s regional governor for the South, UTM’s spokesperson wondered why DPP keeps   “bastardising” the Jean Ansah-led Electoral Commission with aspersions that cast doubt on the credibility and neutrality of the  electoral body for the July 2 vote.

“We have our doubts that this  MEC  can be neutral and fair,” he said.

UTM has added weight to the claims made by MCP that they ohave detected flaws in the MEC and NRB databases.

Malunga said MEC has been registering under-aged children in the Southern Region. using NRB identity cards .

Recently, Human Rights Defenders Coalition (HRDC) questioned the transfer of NRB director Mcford Somanje to the NRB, as they alleged that he was transferred to the bureau to manipulate the database.

Meanwhile, UTM  is requesting Malawi Police Service to deploy its officers to registration centres for security.

The party contends that  the withdrawal of police officers has given chance to other people to disrupt the registration exercise.

UTM party has also condemned the beating of its monitors yesterday in Thyolo, Phalombe and Mulanje districts during the second phase of the voter registration exercise.

Bastardising? If anyone is bastardising it is Chilima. Chilima’s greed for power and glory will end badly for him. Bad for Malawi.

UTM is always crying and those are signs that they are typcal failures. SCK, the alliance you are in, is making you even further away from prospects of one day becoming the President of the Country. But I know u will stand on your own. You are typical like Malema in SA, he makes noise all the time and everybody knows that he will never be the President of SA. He perfoms well in the opposition side just as good as SCK. Making noise all the time, anthu amaonatu and u will c when it comes to elections, they will… Read more »

This is exactly why lomwes were chased from Mozambique by the Portuguese, lomwes or ngulus are crooks by dna….we can only blame the Chewa people for giving our land in mulanje and Thyolo to the lomwes as a place of refuge. Lero Alomwe analula mphafa to the point that they have a paramount chief of their own though they have no land. And worse still this week lomwes are chasing the very same people who gave them refuge to leave the lomwe belt as they call it. They have forgotten their history most of them they don’t even know how… Read more »

Chewa people never owned the whole land of Malawi. Revisit your history, do not be proud thinking you are the rightful owners of Malawi.
