Judges of the Supreme Court of Appeal who made the ruling on the election appeal case

The Centre for Democracy and Economic Development Initiatives (CDEDI) has applauded the five judges led by Chief Justice Andrew Nyirenda during the 21May elections case in the supreme court of appeal for delivering justice to Malawi.

Sylvester Namiwa, Acting Executive Director disclosed this in a press statement issued on May 9, 2020.

In the statement, Namiwa expressed concern over the negative impact of the just ended legal battle on the social and economic fabric of the country and has asked all authorities involved to diligently deal with arising matters from the ruling responsibly and timely so that Malawi can live normal again.

CDEDI has petitioned the right authorities to launch investigations in the complaints that were officially lodged with the National Registration Bureau (NRB) concerning registration of minors and let the culprits face the law.

The non partisan, nongovernmental organization has also challenged all the candidates in the Presidential polls to
condemn politically sponsored violence and practice issue based campaign with emphasis on national unity and co-existence to Malawians.

CDEDI has on the other side commended President Professor Arthur Peter Mutharika and his Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) for exercising their constitutional right to appeal the February 3, 2020 verdict, it has however warned Public Officers who deliberately flout the law for purposes of satisfying their personal interests that they will be personally held responsible for their actions following the SCA ruling.
