BEN, CHAPONDA ORDERS CADETS TO GET THE PROMISED MAYOR SEAT IN COURT, AS BISNORTY LOSSES 30 IN BRIBING COUNCILLORS

After squandering MK45 million, MK30 million which was Hon David Bisnowaty to make sure DPP grabs the Lliongwe mayor seat, Ruling Democratic Progressive Party officials Ben Phiri and Dr Gergeo chaponda have ordered the cadets to take the case to court.

On the other hand, the DPP says THEY WILL SUE THEIR OWN MP FOR NOT VOTING FOR THEM in an election that had the result that has put Desmond Bikoko, a popular candidate as Mayor.

“They have ordered us to challenge the results in court but also sue the councillor who did not vote for us which is quite a strange move,” said one of the councillors under anonymity.

The dispute revolves around the fact that one vote was null and void. That appears to have happened because one councillor marked both Desmond Bikoko and Kwame Bandawe on the ballot paper which meant that the vote didn’t count.

In trying to make sure they won the elections, DPP gave other councillors MK 5 million each with MK30 million coming from David Bisnowaty who wanted to make sure the seat goes to DPP for his own personal reasons.

Apart from paying councillors to vote for them, DPP went to councillors homes to correct those who claimed they were sick just to make sure they won the elections.

In the election, Bikoko from opposition, Malawi Congress Party (MCP) trounced the DPP candidate, Kwame Bandawe by a vote, 15 votes to 14 valid votes cast.

As the MCP camp celebrated the results, the DPP thugs beat up people outside the Civic Centre offices in full view of the police.

The police made no arrests and left the ruling party thugs scot free after accomplishing their mission.

Malawi Electoral Commission officials oversaw the polls.

    DPP will be history and forgotten very soon, just like UDF and PP.
