One of the parliamentary aspirants in the 2019 elections who are calling for the nullification of parliamentary election results, Jessie Kabwila is reported to be receiving death threats from some of the sitting members of the house of assembly.
Kabwila is one of the vocal parliamentary spirants who were seeking justice in the works of a landmark court ruling which declared the Malawi Electoral Commission MEC) incompetent following its failure to manage the May 21st tripartite elections.
One of the lawyers who wanted to represent the concerned parliamentary aspirants sympathised with Kabwila saying threatening concerned individuals who are seeking justice on the elections issues is very unfair.
“It is very unfair, a criminal act for that matter to be sending death threats to people who have seen justice to have been twisted somewhere, but honestly those people have a substantial case to present considering how the whole electoral management was carried out,”
Efforts to speak to Kabwira proved futile as she could not reply to the questionnaire we sent which she promised to respond to when she was done with a meeting she was attending to on Monday afternoon.
Some of the notable parliamentary aspirants who contributed money meant for the legal fees in the process of pursuing justice on the matter included, are the former speaker of the national assembly, Richard Msowoya, UDF president Atupele Muluzi and his running mate in the just ended presidential race, Frank Tumpale Mwenefumbo.
