UTM Leader Saulos Chilima has alleged that there is a Zimbabwean national Augustine Chihuli who is in the country to help the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) rig the next Tuesday’s elections.
According to Chilima, Chihuli, a former Police Commissioner General in Zimbabwe was allegedly hired by DPP government in order to train parallel police officers who will pose as legitimate officers and do heinous acts in bid to rig the tripartite elections in favour of the DPP.
Chilima has since ordered that Chihuli must leave Malawi at once.
Said Chilima: “We are saying that Chihuli must leave our country, don’t mess our elections.”
He also said there are also plans to swap already marked ballot papers with the credible ones.
He was saying this in a press briefing at his area 12 house which started at 5:30 in the morning of Sunday.
He further said: “We will soon be writing Malawi Electoral Commission, elaborating these anomalies so that they can have them fixed.”
In the previous months, there have been a war of verbal accusation between UTM and DPP about plans to rig the elections.
In a self praised verbal statements during political rallies, Chilima has been boasting to be the ICT expert who helped the DPP rig the 2014 tripatite elections.
