Blue sea conquers Malawi’s capital: DPP supporters protest against ConCourt ruling

DPP Secretary General Glezelder Jeffrey and Kutsayira

LILONGWE-(MaraviPost)-There was blue sea in Malawi’s Capital Lilongwe on Wednesday morning as thousands of governing Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) supporters took to the streets in a peaceful march.

The demonstration is a continuation of expressing displeasure over February 3, 2020 Constitutional Court (ConCourt) ruling that nullified May 21, 2019 presidential polls.

“We find the Constitutional Court ruling to be not pleasing at all. We find the judgement to have stolen our legitimate victory in broad daylight,” reads part of the petition presented to Lilongwe city council which was red by Dr Hetherwick Ntaba .

In Lilongwe, the blue sea would edge through Mchesi, Kamuzu Central round about and then finally into the Central Business District to submit a petition at Civic Offices.

The marchers are led by DPP Secretary General Glezelder Jeffrey.

Other notable figures included Central region Binton Kutsayira, Dr. Jean Kalirani, Mwai Chimuyambeni and Chimwemwe Chipungu.

Jeffrey urged the DPP supporters to remain peaceful during the demos which was indeed not violent

“Let us demonstrate that we are a peaceful party who just want to fight for the restoration justice which we feel is not being dispensed justly,” she said.

The party is demanding the probe of ConCourt judges on the alleged bribe over the ruling.

The court nullified the presidential election following petitions submitted by opposition Malawi Congress Party and UTM party-who complained that the election was marred by rigging and massive irregularities.

In its determination, the Constitutional Court indeed found that the irregularities were grave and that the use of correctional fluid Tippex in many results sheets, undermined the outcome of the election.

Immediately after the ruling, DPP expressed its displeasure, first taking to the streets in the Commercial Capital Blantyre and then Zomba.
