I won’t change my manifesto – Chikomeni

Mzuzu based presidential aspirant Ras David Chikomeni Kaderere Chirwa has stressed that the tenets of his manifesto remain intact ahead of the forthcoming fresh presidential election.

Chikomeni has expressed an interest to partake in the forthcoming presidential election, following the court ruling on 3rd February which saw last year’s presidential contest’s results getting annulled in favour of a fresh race.

The presidential aspirant was denied space on the ballot paper following his failure to comply with the electoral body’s requirements; K2 million fee and signatures of approval from 10 people in every district of the country.

In an interview from Mzuzu earlier this week, Chikomeni said his focus will be on Indian Hemp business.

He argues the plant is profitable and it will be of economic importance to the country. As such his priority will be on hemp business.

Chikomeni also hailed the high court for letting the will of the people prevail. He believes, this marks the end of electoral injustice in the country.

However, the ruling party is making efforts to appeal the ruling, a move that has been described by many commentators as a delaying tactic.

Meanwhile, the Rastafarian is mobilising resources ahead of the fresh race to State House. He will  contest as an independent candidate.

  1. The fee to contest for the Malawi president position needs to be raised from the current K2 million to K10 million, so that only serious contenders should contest. We are tired of time wasters who get just one or two votes at a polling station, or even zero in many polling stations.

    The K10 million per candidate will not be painful to the serious contenders, because they will certainly be refunded the money after amassing the minimum of 5% of the vote. Any of these time wasters if they pay that money it will go down the drain. It’s silly to be having up to 7 candidates on a presidential ballot paper. Three or 4 are enough.

  2. This Rastafari is back again…. You r #1, it’s rights, but be serious may be I’ll vote because of u
