Tippex PAC Chair Gags Ansah on Widespread use of Tippex

Public Appointment Committee (PAC) chairperson Collins Kajawa on Wednesday stopped MEC Chairperson Justice Jane Ansah to explain that Tippex was used in all three levels of the May 2019 tripartite election.

Ansah was trying to respond to a question from Zomba Msondole MP on whether it was true that Tippex was used in all three elections.

“Honorable member, hold on that question, and Justice Ansah, please hold on to the response on that question,” said Kajawa.

However Ansah was audible enough before being cut off saying, “Yes Tippex was used in all the elections.”

MEC Commissioner Linda Kunje, on Tuesday incurred wrath of the committee after she bluntly told them that the very alleged MEC incompetence through use of Tippex ushered them into Parliament.

    to be honest nullifying only and I repeat ONLY presidential polls basing on tippex and dublicates which engulfed the whole election is a blatant lie to favour someone. nullifying the presidential elections because of tippex and not RIGGING is another serious mistake because there is no court proof that the said irregularities were done in secret and dismissing the important roles played by party monitors and constituency tally centres that were part of the electoral process and were there to cross check RIGGING in totality whether constitutional or not is another blatant lie. the question is: was the correction of the figures done in secret? anaother question is: did the parallel tally centres for mesn, pac, etc. found a different candidate leading the others apart from apm? to be honest our judiciary is a great shame. they deliberately made a recommendation that the judgement was to be made based on witnesses and what the law said and yet their fellow judge who was answerable to the queried laws she guided the commissioners did not show up because of fear for her life after threatened by chakwera’s evil camp, was it a plan led by the court to put more fearing presssure on her not to appear before it? pac and our lawyers, what type of question that needs only yes or no? this is autocratic questioning, don’t you know some questions can have both answers and they can be degreed basing on explanation? those answers need a robbot not humans to answer. another buffling thing is, we all know chakwera’s undemocratic tendencies and the bullying tactics he uses to intimidate justice and yet the very same court has come again to his rescue citing unfounded things that have no RIGGING evidence to nullifying only the presidential elections, what is the meaning of this? let me remind you: nullifying only the presidential polls and not the whole tripartite, failure of proof of RIGGING and use of irregularities that were made in full view of party representatives and international observers is vote RIGGING, or in short the court is favouring the other autocratic candidates to rig. tippex has been there for almost all the past polls and had it been either chilima or chakwera had won this thing would have not appeared and the court would have thrown it away. to pac, these polls have alot coondemnations to ansah because chakwera participated and he doesn’t want to lose at all cost. he is a bad leader and the most stupid of them all.

    The revelation about Madise being related to the wife of Chilima makes the whole judgement a fuss. I had commented before the judgement that the Judges reading the ruling were all repeating what opposition were saying in court abut was not giving responses that were given by the defendants and their claim were saying they failed to give responses which was a lie. It was a copy and paste for opposition and i made a declaration on my own to say this judgement will be fake and will be in favour of the opposition. Now more things are getting revealed to say Madise and two senior judges in supreme court made this stupid judgement which is no surprise that these who called this judgement correct then i would say they were very poor in mathematics at school.
    How does a court order parliament to enact a law and put in what it wants, when that motion was defeated recently. Had Chakwera or Chilima won and DPP happened to have not complained , could you have nullified the results because of the simple majority without DPP making that claim? the answer is no , because nobody could have complained. Now why did you bring that simple majority issue when opposition did ask the court to do so?
    There are monitors all throughout the country and they have results, why did the court not just call all results from all monitors and recount or compare with MEC results if they were the same or not and make determination. Uku nchifukwa ndimati mwina ma judge athuwa anaiwala masamu or masamu ankawavuta. It is simple mathematical thinking which PAC in parliament did not even realise. How can they say tippex deletes when they could have chacked with form 60 of the results if forms 66 is tippexed. Chakwera and Chilima both said they did not think monitors were important in the case . Was that correct? Probably these too are not mathematicians. they could only know that the results are different if a monitor claims so.
    To me Tippex in the elections was a ploy by the opposition conniving with some presiding officers to tippex the administrative part of the results when sending the results to MEC after sending them electronically when they had seen that they had failed just to discredit the elections. Unfortunately PAC and all members of parliament now had their forms tippexed why then only nullifying presidential elections only? This is just a symbol showing they just want to make their foul mouthed leaders have a second trial. Mind you if God gave us APM as the State President he will make APM a great winner than what he had in this election.
    PAC also guffed as far as i am concerened . Alufandika is CEO for MEC just like the Clerk of Parliament, like the PS for a ministry. I have never seen the PS going to carry out a function or writing a communication to his staff or other people outside the ministry and then he doesn’t sign and instead he puts the minister’s name and signature as the head of the Ministry, never seen this. The minister is the head of the ministry but the PS id the CEO just like the Speaker of Parliament is the head of Parliament whilst clerk of Parliement is the CEO for Parliament and just like the PS and CEO for MEC as CEOs they are supposed to be more knowledgeable to parliamentary issues than the minister, MEC Chair, speaker and they are the ones who drill their bosses on what and how to do thins therefore there was nothing wrong in letting Alufandika speak on behalf of MEC. interesteingly MEC Chair was superable and was now teaching PAC members on laws they make but were raising questions without understanding the law itself.

    PAC, all members of parliament , all councillors basing on the grounds the court used to nullify the presidential elections which also affect the entire elections means all must go. They are illegaly occupying their seats in parliament. APM and CHilima were not elected by those people in parliament, the crop they were elected with together should come back to transact business until fresh elections are conducted in 6 months or more months in October, 2020. Any decision by this PAC or the current crop of members of parliament will be null void just like the elections are claimed to be null void. The ministers before the elections should be the ones coming back to parliament and ministries until AMP dissolves cabinet for fresh elections.
    Otherwise if these MPS remain in parliament then elections were free , fair and credible and stand as they were. APM and Chimulirenji President. People must learn that when they join competition during campaign it might look they will win but they must also expect to lose to lose and accept defeat. There is no State President who has done a lot of development in the history of Malawi like APM had done and doing it with a lot of disturbances from opposition, including creating fake news about anamapopa in the southern region, killing albinos trying to make mudslinging of the government and elections themselves tippex and some presiding officers not signing were opposition gimmix to mar elections with irregularities.

    I know what treatment can be given to the presiding officers to disclose the ones who told them to use tipeex when MEC had said no. Now you people do you mean to say you would have liked it had MEC declared elections null and void for having noticed the use of tippex against their instructions not to use tipex? NOT AT ALL. MEC were intelligent enough to realise that the tippex was on administrative figures and not on results and therefore nobody was favoured in the use of tippex and was only used as correction fluid and went ahead to announce. In short all this fuss is created by Chilima camp and Chakwera camp using HRDC who said they would do anything just to discredit DPP and make DPP nothing. Thus why they bought the layers who two of them were promoted by JB, one is related to wife to saulos and the onther one was the one who chaired the midnight six whose aim was to declare the six guilty and therefore face capital punishment of death for trying to take over government then.but recused herself because of a friend Patricia. Probably the chair of the five judges was the one free. I wonder who is this one having the pains among the judges on what they did to be wrong? could it be the chair or someone else? That one is a real Judge we want in Malawi. The other three judges who were against the judgement only to be over powered by the other two are also the type of judges we need in Malawi.

    Please the good judges come out completely and tell us what happened for the five to come up with such a wrong judgement. In fact had it been possible for the community to be given a chance to ask you questions with youall on TV after judgement, you would have rescinded your judgement and apologised to the nation

    So COME OUT AND TELL THE TRUTH AND DISCREDIT YOUR JUDGEMENT NOW AND LET THOSE PEOPLE GET DISCIPLINARY MESSURES FROM JUDICIARY
