DPP’s rigging strategy explodes: Simbi, Bushiri targeted

Finance minister Mwanamveka

Documents leaked by hackers have revealed that the ruling, the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP), has been implementing a sophisticated electoral fraud for President Peter Mutharika, using the national Identity Cards collected from the Northern and Central region with an aim of reducing numbers for the opposition bedfellows UTM and Malawi Congress Party (MCP).

The strategy review document, allegedly prepared by the well-known international cadet, Foster F. Fundi, submitted to Honourable Joseph Mwanamveka outlines a number of sinister strategies among which include the recruitment of ID harvesters from the North and Central region of Malawi.

They are calling this strategy; deflating numbers in northern and central region.

The strategy is that DPP initially deployed its people to be buying off or simply tactically taking away the national ID Cards from people of the Central and Northern regions using the MERDF loan. The launching of the MERDF loan occurred recently in an atmosphere of suspicions that it is meant to reap money from Government coffers and direct it for party use. What was not suspected was that the same loan would be used to take away citizenship IDs from the people of other regions.

“I am saddened that one of the key strategies has, so far, exploded amid its running. I am told several agents were caught in the process and the opposition is now undertaking an initiative of sensitizing the public to perpetrate mob dealing and repulsion. This is potentially risking the lives of our agents.

“In that regard therefore, I would suggest that funding towards this exercise be adjusted significantly upwards so that we can switch to recruiting locals. It is better they kill each other than risking our service men from the south,” reads the document in part.

According the document, those without national IDs will not be allowed to register for voting or verify their registration status (for those who registered during the 2019 election registration). It has been revealed that the ID Cards that are been taken away from people are being deleted from the National Registration system and will remain deleted without issuing any replacements until registration process for the upcoming fresh election is over.

The one who is doing this is Mackford Somanje, a DPP cadet, who was recently appointed as the new Director for the National Registration Bureau (NRB), the leaked document has revealed.

Fundi has also highlighted, in the leaked document, that the coalition between MCP and UTM has pushed and squeezed the DPP to a nasty corner and Intel given to him indicated that  Simbi Phiri of Khato Civils and Prophet Shepherd Bushiri are the ones who have influenced this coalition to take place.

He said: “Returning to Simbi and Bushiri, there is an absolute need to relentlessly injure their reputation before the eyes of their international business partners. We need to utilize the lockdown season in South Africa where they are all based, to strategize on effective schemes and approaches.

“For example, I would suggest that we sacrifice a significant package with which to meet strategic key authorities in relevant sectors in South Africa who can, possibly, ignite charges against Simbi regarding the Giyani Water Project, which I am told its trial was abandoned. Perhaps the background assignment, which we may involve our diplomatic mission entourage in SA, would be to establish the grounds on which those charges were abandoned and examine the possibility of resuscitating them.”

“As for Bushiri, it has been brought to my attention that his case was referred to the High Court from the Specialized Financial Crimes Court and is due for trial in August. Our mission, therefore, remains recruiting more of his close aides who can testify against him during trial. The drafting of Pheliat Mlolowa has been a tremendous milestone in this direction”, the document further reads.

Speaking on condition of anonymity, government official admitted that President Peter Mutharika was not leaving anything to chance and would do all he could to ensure he won the presidential election. 

Malawians are expected to have a fresh presidential elections following the nullification of the 2019 elections by Constitutional Court.
