The Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) is in a fresh trouble as sheriffs in Blantyre yesterday seized vehicles as well as office furniture owned by the electoral body due to debts it owes two companies amounting to MK 18 Million.
The electoral boy owes this sum to Universal Trading and Trans World Radio, reports say.
Judiciary Spokesperson, Mlenga Mvula confirmed that a warrant was issued by the High court to the sheriffs over the said debts.
This comes as the electoral body has been under fire for making unscrupulous purchases of equipment used during elections.
A recent blast on the body came last year with revelations that the body flouted procurement and recruitment procedures at the institution from July 2012 to December 2014.
It is not known how the debts were obtained from the two companies.
