opposition in Malawi is falling apart, they can only think of an alliance.
Waldo Emmerson is quoted as saying “When you strike at a King, make sure
you kill him” What the corrupt judges did was just a bruise at DPPs ego,
it was not a kick in the nuts, or a killer punch that floors your opponent….
from the confusion it is clear that Mutharika will win again this time with a
landslide. Save this post.
Malawi is one of the countries with the most corrupt judiciary, we have thousands of people on remand and others sentenced to lengthy jail time for petty crimes just because they’re poor. Yet we want to claim that these five judges are incorruptible.
If we can sentence a poor person to 10 years for a petty crime, fail to prosecute Bakili Muluzi, or Joyce Banda, if we can have criminals like Chanthunya free on bail, THESE DECISIONS ARE MADE WITH JUDICIAL IMPUNITY, if we can fail to prosecute the big fish in cash gate cases, how do we celebrate an election case that is riddled with judicial malpractices? Tight race this will be and trust me no opposition will win against DPP even at its weakest.
Let’s fix Malawi but let’s be critical, every decision by the courts in Malawi presents a false idealism. Remember that.
