Ruling People’s Party (PP) has urged Malawi Police to speedily investigate and bring to book individuals who are reportedly buying and selling voter registration certificates.
The party has observed that such reports are not only worrisome and uncalled for, but also a threat to multiparty democracy.
“Peoples Party would like to strongly condemn such undemocratic acts and call upon our non-partisan Police Service to speedily investigate the matter and bring to book those involved.
“We have full confidence and trust in our Malawi Police Service that they will do their job professionally, unlike in the previous DPP led administration where the police were being used by politicians to torture suspects to implicate innocent people,” said Ken Msonda, PP Deputy publicity secretary.
Meanwhile, the party’s southern province committee has elected Isaac Nyakamera to the position of Provincial Chairperson.
Nyakemera, who once served as deputy secretary general for opposition Democratic Progressive Party (DPP), replaces Ali M’balaka who resigned on personal grounds.
Msonda said it was necessary to immediately fill the position after the resignation of M’balaka, describing Nyakamela as the rightful person for the post.
“Hon Isaac Nyakamera is a person of high integrity in society and a seasoned politician; he commands respect in the political cycle” said Msonda.
