Malawi had a general elections in May 2019, the election was marked by rigging and irregularities. The president Prof Arthur Peter Mutharika who was going for his second term in office was announced as the winner and was immediately sworn into office.
All hell was let loose!
Since last year, there have been series of protests from the masses against the government of Murtharika. I have never seen a people uniting as one to fight for their rights as the people of Malawi. There were lots of nationwide protests against the government. Even when the police threatened their lives, it never gave them any cause to relent.
The opposition parties took the election case to court and to my surprise, in February this year, the court annulled the elections citing vote tampering and gave mandate that a fresh election should be conducted within 90 days; and in this case, the winner must have 50+1% of the votes.
This made all the numerous political parties to start merging. Chakwera who came second in the May election lead a nine-party coalition. Within them, Lazarus Chakwera of MCP became the presidential candidate while Saulos Chilima of UTM became the Vice.
At the outbreak of Covid-19 in March this year here in Malawi, the president Peter Mutharika gave a nation wide broadcast in which he placed a 21 day lockdown to contain the virus. Malawians protested against it.
No one went on lockdown. According to them, the president wants to use Covid-19 to extend his stay in office. They took the case to court, the people won. That was the height of it all.
Last week Tuesday, the rerun election was conducted and the result came out last night announcing that the opposition party of Lazarus Chakwera defeated the incumbent president by 58.57%.
The new president Dr Lazarus Chakwera, a Pentecostal preacher and former theology lecturer will first have to heal a nation that’s been through many months of political turmoil.
Congratulations to Malawi! Malawi is truly the warm heart of Africa. This small country has left so many lessons for other countries in Africa to learn from.
See Trump’s Statement After Being Acquitted By The Senate
FORMER PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP’S STATEMENT AFTER BEING ACQUITTED BY THE SENATE.
I want to first thank my team of dedicated lawyers and others for their tireless work upholding justice and defending truth.
My deepest thanks as well to all of the United States Senators and Members of Congress who stood proudly for the Constitution we all revere and for the sacred legal principles at the heart of our country.
Our cherished Constitutional Republic was founded on the impartial rule of law, the indispensable safeguard for our liberties, our rights and our freedoms.
It is a sad commentary on our times that one political party in America is given a free pass to denigrate the rule of law, defame law enforcement, cheer mobs, excuse rioters, and transform justice into a tool of political vengeance, and persecute, blacklist, cancel and suppress all people and viewpoints with whom or which they disagree. I always have, and always will, be a champion for the unwavering rule of law, the heroes of law enforcement, and the right of Americans to peacefully and honorably debate the issues of the day without malice and without hate.
This has been yet another phase of the greatest witch hunt in the history of our Country. No president has ever gone through anything like it, and it continues because our opponents cannot forget the almost 75 million people, the highest number ever for a sitting president, who voted for us just a few short months ago.
I also want to convey my gratitude to the millions of decent, hardworking, law-abiding, God-and-Country loving citizens who have bravely supported these important principles in these very difficult and challenging times.
Our historic, patriotic and beautiful movement to Make America Great Again has only just begun. In the months ahead I have much to share with you, and I look forward to continuing our incredible journey together to achieve American greatness for all of our people. There has never been anything like it!
We have so much work ahead of us, and soon we will emerge with a vision for a bright, radiant, and limitless American future.
Together there is nothing we cannot accomplish.
We remain one People, one family, and one glorious nation under God, and it’s our responsibility to preserve this magnificent inheritance for our children and for generations of Americans to come.
May God bless all of you, and may God forever bless the United States of America.
Trump’s ban in twitter is permanent even if he runs for office again – Twitter CFO
Former President Trump will not be permitted back on Twitter even if he runs again for office and wins, according to the company’s chief financial officer. “The way our policies work, when you’re removed from the platform, you’re removed from the platform,” CFO Ned Segal said, “whether you’re a commentator, you’re a CFO, or you are a former or current public official.”
Last month, Twitter said it was permanently suspending Trump “due to the risk of further incitement of violence” after some of his supporters stormed the US Capitol.
Trump’s lawyer change defence strategy admits Biden victory after capitol riot video
Donald Trump may not have ever admitted that Joe Biden beat him in November’s election, but his under-fire impeachment lawyer Bruce Castor did just that during Tuesday’s proceedings.
Mr Castor, who has been targeted with criticism and online memes over his rambling opening statement, said: “The American people just spoke, and they just changed administrations.”
He also said that Americans are “smart enough to pick a new administration if they don’t like the old one, and they just did”.
The comments are in contrast to what Mr Trump and his defence team have been saying so far, alleging that the election was “stolen” and rigged, filing several lawsuits that were either rejected or withdrawn.
Mr Trump has also repeatedly claimed that he won a “landslide” victory and continued with the claims in his “Save America” rally, after which his supporters stormed into the Capitol during the hearing to certify the election results in favour of Joe Biden.
“Today I will lay out just some of the evidence proving that we won this election, and we won it by a landslide. This was not a close election,” the former president said in the rally before the Capitol riot.
