LILONGWE-(MaraviPost)-I have come to realize why Malawi Attorney General (AG) Kalekeni Kaphale tried very hard to dismiss the evidence tendered by Peter Lackson which shows Malawi Congress Party (MCP) President Lazarus Chakwera won the disputed May 21 presidential poll.
Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) colluded with Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) to rig the presidential poll.
DPP and MEC did their best to change presidential results on Form 66C.
After releasing the presidential results at 75%, MEC learned President Peter Mutharika had remained with very few votes to secure and that chances very slim for him to win the presidential race. ‘
Then two sides agreed to pool together all the remaining 25% of the presidential results.
Finally, MEC just distributed the vote to create the final position for each candidate.
This explains why MEC Chairperson Justice Jane Ansah refused to release an update of the presidential results at 98%.
This also explains the reasons why MEC has failed to present any credible documents related to elections.
Mec has failed to bring before the court original Form 66C result sheets.
It has also failed to show the court the sheet which Ansah used to declare the winner in the presidential race.
It has also failed to bring the audit report which the AG Kaphale promised to present to the court.
So when Kaphale saw the presidential elections results, he tried to silence Lackson.
But Lackson stood his ground arguing Chakwera won the presidential election. Kaphale could not move Lackson because he had no defense of his arguments since his client (Mec) has not given the court the results of the presidential race.
He is afraid the court can use such data to declare the winner in the presidential election.
When Kaphale asks the petitioners’ witnesses to provide proofs of their opposition to results, he himself has not brought any relevant documents to court.
Even at this juncture Kaphale cannot present any tangible defense to court. He is very much aware of the dangers of releasing such sensitive documents.
Kaphale and Mbeta are mitigating before the judges to reduce the punishments that will be meted on MEC and DPP officials.
They can’t win this case even if Jappie Mhango can call his witch-doctors and allow these witch-doctors to carry all their talismans, they will still lose this case.
Let’s wait and see what is gonna happen when Daudi Suleiman appears before the court as he keeping the Father Of All Bombs
