Kaphale: We will parade three witnesses

The Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) Lawyer in the on-going presidential election case Kalekeni Kaphale on Wednesday told the constitution court in Lilongwe that the commission will only parade three witnesses against the initial figure of 700 witnesses.

Kaphale was speaking after first respondent to the presidential election case President Peter Mutharika finished parading his witnesses in the court.

According to Lawyer Kaphale, the commission will only parade MEC’s Chief Elections Officer Sam Alufandika, Director of Electoral Services Hensley Munkhondya and Director of ICT Mahabi Chisi.

The first witness to be cross examined today (Thursday) will be MEC CEO Alufandika who took an oath on Wednesday.

Kaphale also pleaded with the court to throw out the petition by Malawi Congress (MCP) and UTM Parties leaders Lazarus Chakwera and Saulos Chilima respectively saying they are based on opinion not facts on the ground.

He insisted that: “MEC involved all political parties from the beginning of registration to the polling station. We’re disputing that there were irregularities.”

The two opposition leaders are asking the constitution court to nullify 21 st May Presidential results citing the results were marred with irregularities.

The respondents to the case are MEC and Democratic President Party (DPP) president Mutharika, who was declared a winner for the presidential election.

The case is being heard by a panel of five High Court judges Ivy Kamanga, Mike Tembo, Redson Kapindu, Healey Potani and Dingiswayo Madise.

    he woud have used all the 800 witnesses and apm would have used all his 40 witnesses to teach these fools a lesson because this case would have been concluded in 2025 and they would have danced to their stubboness because they would have incured further financial losses interms of payments to their counsels. i’ve never seen in my life such type of people who ignore the set principles of democracy and in savagery thinking, dressing themselves in fake glittering freedom fighters gear. what if we go for a re-run and apm redeclared the winner? i’m afraid all this total circus madness shall continue. only myopics who are intoxicated with tribalism and jelousy can vote for these ergocentrics, the street bullies, the cold blood shedders, the chasers of donors through their cashgate soiled hands. we are still in elections period and yet we voted and the government of the people, for the people and by the people was elected. they are causing more suffering to us and they don’t care: people are told to buy drugs, maize price is rising, etc. all because they don’t want to put to an end the elections and are making the government lose concentration.
