Confused High Court tells Msungama to substantiate rigging claims: Malawi burnt ballot papers case

LILONGWE (MaraviPost) — The Lilongwe High Court has challenged Malawi Congress Party MCP (MCP) candidate for Lilongwe City South East constituency Ulemu Msungama to provide the court with substantiated evidence that elections in the disputed constituency were rigged.

This comes as a twist in the tale since the same court ordered the Malawi Electoral Commission to do a vote recount for the constituency.

The court’s call for evidence comes days after the ballot papers that were earmarked for recount were gutted down by fire at Malawi Electoral Commission warehouse in Lilongwe.

Democratic Progressive Party DPP law maker Bentry Namasasu was declared winner by Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) in the highly contested May 20 tripartite elections.

The Registrar of the High Court Justice Kishindo ordered Msungama to bring evidence before the court to prove his vote rigging claims, Moyenda Gomani, our correspondent at the Court in Lilongwe said.

Kishindo said “in the absence of evidence of the rigging claims it will be difficult to hear the case considering that such evidence is critical in the matter.”

The case has since been adjourned to allow Msungama time to furnish the court with the desired evidence.
