Pres. Joyce Banda condemns Galaxy FM for propagating false reports

BLANTYRE (MaraPost)–President Joyce Banda and her People’s Party (PP) led government has dismissed reports that a State House truck loaded with ballot papers marked Joyce Banda has been impounded by Area 30 Police.

According to State House Press Secretary, Steve Nhlane, the reports are being spread by Galaxy Radio, which was belongs to the family of former President Bingu WA Mutharika, founder of the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP).

“That is totally false and a desperate attempt by the radio station to discredit the MEC decision for a recount of votes,” said Nhlane.

PP spokesperson Ken Msonda claimed that DPP is very desperate for power, alleging they rigged the elections.

“They rigged the elections, they are refusing a recount, and now they are spreading lies to confuse the people,” said Msonda.

But DPP spokesperson Nicolas Dausi said the issue of recount has got several challenges which DPP believes has to be looked into.

He observed that safety and security of the ballot papers is not there because during transportation from the polling centres to the warehouse, there was no security.

However, MEC chairperson Maxon Mbendera dispelled DPP fears, saying “all the presidential papers are safe”.

“The Malawi Electoral Commission-your election commission-is charged with the duty of ensuring a free and fair election. And towards that goal we are committed.

“The legitimacy of our future leadership depends on these efforts,” said Mbendera.
