calls for political parties, spiritual groups and a few NGOs in the next three weeks.

The JCSPG believes that each one political actors need to be cautious about how to campaign and make promises in order not to undermine election processes. As a non-governmental group, we rely on the electoral system

We civil society leaders are fearful that there are problems in the country which might be downhill Justice, the rule of regulation and the views of the womb Reaching credible elections in 2019. Only recently, there have been actions and statements that increase considerations about the credibility of the May 2019 elections, which have to be stopped and dealt with decisively. In this respect, subsequently, we are dealing with two crucial points which have had a serious influence on the future of this country. One of them is the allegations of the individuals of Albinism (PWA) and the electoral process. All these are related.

Conspiracy to Condemn the President

We’re shocked by the voice recording that has been agitated by social media, presumably the voice of Timothy Mtambo, chairman of the Human Rights Defenders Coalition (HRDC). There are indicators within the sound that Mtambo has intervened in the work of the Investigation Committee on Abduction and the murder of albinism individuals with the help of Dr. Saulos Klaus Chiliman, Vice President of the country.

It’s surprising that this voice is predicated on the proven fact that the troops of albinism in Blantyre made very damaging calls to examine and take duty for the actions of Mtambo and HRDC. drawback. As civil society organizations, we followed up and confirmed a quantity of information that refer to the course of of getting the President, the government of Malawi, to facilitate the systemic change of the electoral process


We’ve got evidence and an eyewitness to the conspiracy between the vice-chairman and the HRDC chairman with the individuals of albinism. That is very worrying as a result of it questions the position of the two and their accomplice as a higher position in abduction and violation of individuals by albinism. Clearly, the incontrovertible fact that PWA matters are thought-about to be electoral points and designed as a political recreation changer, which sadly has not worked as deliberate

For this objective, the HRDC chairman kidnapped and taken up an alliance of Albinism individuals in Malawi (APAM). mistakes when Chilima supported the problem that UTM and HRDC have co-operated with. The public refers to the inner recording of the HRDC, suggesting that Chilima provided K5million to the whistles, and in addition the KTMilion member Kondwani Kulemeka, who gave K2milion and Mrs. Callista to Mutharika, who additionally gave the K2million supply.

When the outcome of the vigilance was not as planned, a plan was launched to speak to the president about interfering with the election, because individuals can be indignant with the government. This began by capturing the relations of the arrested suspects from killing Masambuka in Maching. The plan began by making an attempt the suspects to create voices and written proof towards the government because they have been promised that before May 21, the authorities would fall and pardon and be forgiven.

We have now stated that the points raised by the poor and nervous individuals of Albinism (PACPWA) of their assertion on what the HRDC chairman Zomba and Machinga are real and actual, and we’re challenging the reverse. There’s evidence and recordings of how the monetary rewards have been used to appeal to suspects and their relations to participate in the president.

We problem Mr Mtambo's voice in claiming that HRDC met Chileka's spouse in Domas jail improper. Proof exhibits that they went to Chileka's place of residence, not just as soon as, but several occasions. We’ve additionally noted that Mtambo is negotiating with the work of the delegation, which could be very surprising. Firstly, the work of the Fee is personal and confidential, so he has to know what documents and evidence the Commission has not only proven that he has somebody who provides info, but in addition questions the credibility of the Commission.

The sources of HRDC have proven and have been recorded in a document that is obtainable to us, that there are one or two individuals in the Commission who provide Mtambo with all the proof and recommendations made to the Fee. Such remarks led him to go down to the invitation of the Commission to point out that he was warned that he is perhaps jeopardized on the foundation of proof offered by the Commission.

In this sense, as talked about in the voice, Mtambo has compiled a plan towards propaganda towards the Commission. As a preventive measure, Propaganda seeks to emphasize that the Commission has influenced the undeniable fact that it has attracted him, Present Trapence, Chilima and Bishop Msusa. It’s unlucky that that is making an attempt to overcome justice, and its statements and actions have raised the Commission as unfair.

Election Election Course of

We additionally observe that Vice-President Chilima continues to undermine the electoral course of in Malawi. This is additionally confirmed by the HRDC's allegations that limit the victory of the ruling get together in consequence of the order. In his effort to frighten the ruling social gathering, it is evident by way of his political statements that the results of the 2014 elections have been corrected. That is unhappy as a result of we consider that the elections are authentic, free and truthful.

What a UTM leader is, who is vice-president, sows seeds for anarchy and creates worry among Malawi. In addition, it promotes mistrust in the electoral course of and MEC's ​​capability to present free, truthful and credible elections. If it isn’t checked, it’ll lead to voter apathy as a result of we’ve got already recognized the emotions of totally different sectors of society without the need for a vote, as a result of the elections have already been corrected. In the worst case, emotions lead to violence and violence earlier than and after the elections

Chiliman's allegations concerning the 2014 MEC stockpile sounds extra like a rage of a mad one that simply needs to sound relevant. If indeed Chilima stated she is just not entitled to lead Malawi's highest submit, not to mention run for the presidency. It solely signifies that for the past 5 years Chilima has gained justice and has been guilty of felony offenses. If he needs us to take him critically, forgive me first for being part of a compulsory and most necessary beneficiary of his alleged 2014 elections, and secondly he should instantly return to his vice as he sticks to the place he claims to have obtained in dangerous faith, undermines his immunity [19659002]

Prayers for Peaceful Elections

We’re conscious that on May four, 2019, the Public Affairs Committee (PAC) is organizing spiritual prayers for peaceful elections in Malawi. This can be a commendable and constructive means to strengthen peaceful elections in the country. Nevertheless, we wish to make reservations about whether or not the prayers are reaching the meant functions.

First, some spiritual leaders who take part in prayers have already made an unbiased place on a specific political group and candidates who’re already questioning their impartiality in the elections. In addition, some spiritual leaders help and approve leaders whose statements can lead to violence on this nation. Subsequently, these prayers can be thought-about superfluous when there is a biased intrusion in the group. We might not be stunned if different political and opinion leaders displaced these prayers as they’re thought-about formal.

Based mostly on the above, we make the following calls:

  • HRDC and Chiliman must stop delivering fairness and electoral processes in Malawi. Might we advise the HRDC that, if they need a change in the system, on 21 May they are going to be in a position to campaign for his or her candidate nation in the first place legally, as well as employing and adopting signifies that limit crime.
  • Chiliman and HRDC must struggle with President Peter Mutharika, Dr. Lazarus Chakwera and different truthful and sq.. Propaganda creation, malicious software program, conspiracy to overcome injustice by no means directs them to power, but reveals them negatively. Fact and honesty must be the spine of this electoral course of
  • The Albinism Committee of Inquiry has to clean up the home when Mtambo's voice exhibits that it has invaded and a few Commissioners are sharing evidence with outsiders who question the entire Fee and its findings.
  • All political actors should train warning in campaigning and promises so as not to undermine election processes. As NGOs, we rely on the electoral system
  • Malawi should not be misled by the actions and statements of people who are making an attempt to interfere with elections in order to create anarchy and voter apathy. Elections are carried out in a free, truthful and credible method, and the end result is the Malawians' want.
  • Spiritual leaders ought to act as a peace builder and unifying factor as a biased position that awakens violence

Can the greatest candidates be WIN!
