MCP guru claims monitors did not sign final results sheets

Malawi Congress Party (MCP)’s fifth witness in the electoral trial told the Constitutional Court on Monday that the party’s monitors were denied access to sign Form 66C during the May 21 elections.

MCP Secretary General Eisenhower Mkaka claimed MCP monitors in Chikwawa and Nsanje were denied to sign final results sheet for presidential candidates by the Malawi Electoral Commission.

Mkaka, who since Monday morning, began testifying in the court, said he wrote complaints to MEC on the use of Tippex.

The MCP Secretary General said MEC replied to his some of his complaints like for Dedza, Machinga and Lilongwe districts.

However, that MEC told Mkaka to send all Tippexed forms to National Tally Center at Comesa Hall in Blantyre, but he did not comply with the directive citing that there is an explanation.

Mkaka has also told the court that he asked MEC to consider recounting the votes as his personal opinion in eleven districts across the country.

In addition, the MCP fifth witness has also told the court in his cross examination process that MCP monitors were denied results sheet.

MEC lead lawyer, Kalekeni Kaphale is expected to wind up cross examining Mkaka today as directed by the court on Friday last week.
