The ruling Peoples’ Party candidate Dr. Joyce Banda claims the election has been rigged.
President Banda says her party has evidence that election has been rigged and this has been submitted to Malawi Electoral Commission. She now wants a manual recount of the votes tallied. Says only then will a ‘true winner emerge’. Pres Joyce Banda also read out Kamanya’s suicide note in which he alleged DPP people Mayi Makuta and Ben Phiri threatened to kill him.
Godfrey Kamanya, an outgoing minister in the government, shot himself at his home when it was apparent he had lost, and that the president would lose to Mr Mutharika, son to the former president Bingu Mutharika.
Mr Kamanya left a suicide note at his home in the capital, Lilongwe, asking President Joyce Banda to take care of his daughter and provide for her education, our reporter says.
