“If they have any problems with phones the best body to contact is MACRA and not MEC as our job is to run elections,” he said, in reaction to PP’s allegation that their airtel mobile phones they bought for monitors have been jammed by DPP officials – Maxon Mbendera was quoted.
This follows accusations from none other Person than The President herself Joyce Banda who earlier released a statement saying:
“It has come to my attention that there some serious irregularities in the counting and announcement of results in some parts of the country and the People’s Party has presented specific details of these irregularities to the Malawi Electoral Commission.”
Yesterday the PP as they begun to realize that their grip on power was waning their spokesman said the party is reliably informed that the DPP are using data to divert and update figures via satellite as they go to MEC.
“Our professional law enforcers have surrounded the house in Lilongwe where this equipment is housed. DPP is using another house in Nyambadwe, close to the house it used to be for Hon Gwanda Chakwamba for the same rigging tactics,” said Ken Msonda(one with the new suit) in the statement.
DPP has rubbished these complaints.
MEC chairperson Justice Maxon Mbendera who appears to be more and more independent has also refuted these claims and has dared PP to produce solid evidence. As to Joyce Banda’s request that there should be a Manual recount, MEC says that’s what they have already done. The numbers being released are from a Manual recount.
