Court allows Suleman to use gadgets

The Constitutional Court has thrown out an application by Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) asking the court to stop Malawi Congress Party (MCP) witness Daudi Suleman from using gadgets in court.

MEC lawyers applied to the court to discharge its order of allowing Suleman to use MEC’s savers and gadgets for the purposes of clarification in his sworn statement in the ongoing presidential election case.

But delivering the ruling on the application, the court determined that the application was unnecessary because Malawians are entitled to know what went wrong with the savers during the disputed May 21 presidential election.

Speaking to YFM on the determination, MCP lawyer Senior Counsel Modecai Msiska expressed delight over the court’s decision.

On his part, MEC lawyer who is also Attorney General Kalekeni Kaphale said his party will comply with the court’s directive.
