Opposition rejects MEC fire report

42

The opposition Malawi Congress Party (MCP) has demanded an independent forensic body to investigate fire that gutted a Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) warehouse in the capital Lilongwe.

According to a preliminary report released by Malawi police, there was no foul play involved as the fire was “pure accident”.

Malawi Police Inspector General Lexten Kachama said he thinks the preliminary report gives a clear image of the main report.

Kabwila:We are not convinced.

“To be honest, it was pure fire, you know there were a lot of items like generators, papers that could easily catch fire, at this stage I don’t think the preliminary report will change,” said Kachama.

However, MCP spokesperson Jessie Kabwila has brushed aside the preliminary report and said the country should have an independent investigating body on the fire.

“That is very strange, this fire was politically motivated and we need to have an independent investigating body on the fire,” said Kabwila.

In one of several mysterious fires in the past three years, the MEC warehouse was burnt to ashes while there was a court battle over parliamentary results in Lilongwe City South East Constituency between Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) and MCP candidates.

  3. Politicians are the visible DEVILS. How do you blame your close friends for abuse of public money when you make personal demands regardless of the hardship Malawians are going through???!!!

  4. Budget #1 Section 65 #2.No need for a forensic Enquiry as of now. Pakali pano maso pa chitukuko ndi njala.We already know that this was an evilish move just to destroy the truth. In 2018/2019 we must make sure to cement all these loopholes before things go wrong especially you our leaders. This is for you to learn something from. This is time for development and famine management which is victimising your voters across the country. Remember: Making a mistake is learning but repeating it is stupidity. After all we’ve so many fruitless enquiry commissions e.g the Chasowa Saga, the Cashgate, and what have you.

  5. What Malawians shud know is that There is no secret under the Sun. Although some pple might work tirelessly in secret to tread upon justice and conceal the truth, only God knows and will judge and assert justice in due course. Imagin, God has made restless LIGOMEKA to reveal the deal agreed upon, between him and CHILIMA to hack MEC network to rig the 2014 elections. This is just the starting point of the way to doom if u don’t allow justice to prevail .
