MEC officials used personal emails to approve results with a ghost worker at play-MCP Witness Suleman says

LILONGWE-(MaraviPost)-Opposition Malawi Congress Party (MCP) President Dr. Lazarus Chakwera’s key witness Daudi Suleman on Friday told the constitution court that Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) officials that were manning the May 21 polls used personal emails when confirming presidential results.

MEC conduct according to Suleman was against international standards of personalizing the public stances.

The MCP witness told the court also that MEC used ghost worker for auditing the final results which were tampered from the original forms.

Suleman has therefore finalized testifying in the ongoing Presidential election case.

Suleman started testifying using MEC gadgets on Thursday afternoon at the constitution court in the capital Lilongwe.

On Friday morning, Suleman continued with his testimony.

In his testimony, Suleman demonstrated how the ghost account was allegedly created to approve results, which he says were being made by Mec IT team using personal emails despite the employees being public servants and guided by ICT policy that does not allow use of private mail, unless formal application to ICT organisation is sought.

In his conclusion, Suleman said through his simulation, that the May 21 polls were declared based on manipulated results, which was done by a script and not a human being.

Attornery General Kalekeni Kaphale who is also representing Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) will start cross-examining Suleman on Monday morning regarding his testimony.

According to Kaphale, he cross examination will last for a day only.

Meanwhile the case has been adjourned to Monday.
