Opposition UTM Party leader Saulos Chilima has sued Malawi President Professor Arthur Peter Mutharika for failing to fire Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) Chairperson Justice Dr. Jane Ansah and the entire commissioners….have you noticed that all his moves are happening within the courts?
Through his lawyer and friend Chikosa Silungwe they’re using friends within the justice system to cement his political survival, but soon they’ll run out of options to garner sufficient support for the upcoming fresh elections.
They have turned our justice system into a political tool that’s aiding him towards the presidency, and it speaks realms for a respectable lawyer like Mtanga to turn political strategist for a blindly ambitious guy who is trying so hard to convince us he has what it takes.
Soon they will make a costly mistake and Mighty Democratic Progressive Party (DP)P will be forced to play its hand.
They’re trying to mount a soft coup within Malawi Congress Party (MCP) so that Chilima becomes torch bearer, these are some of the costly mistakes that will have a serious blowback because MCP operates stealthily and dangerously, if Chilima thinks DPP ostracized him, MCP will bury him.
