STATEMENT BY HIS EXCELLENCY EMMERSON DAMBUDZO MNANGAGWA, PRESIDENT OF THE REPUBLIC OF ZIMBABWE AND CHAIRPERSON OF THE SADC ORGAN ON POLITICS, DEFENCE AND SECURITY COOPERATION, 31ST JANUARY, 2020

The Southern African Development Community (SADC) deployed its Election Observation Mission to the Republic of Malawi to observe the Tripartite Elections that were held on 21 May 2019.

In its preliminary statement issued on 23 May 2019, SADC noted that the pre-election and voting phases of the 2019 Tripartite Elections were conducted in a generally peaceful atmosphere, based on the SADC Principles and Guidelines Governing Democratic Elections.

SADC further urged political actors and their supporters to make use of the appropriate legal mechanisms in the event of any electoral dispute.

SADC takes cognisance of the fact that an election petition was duly filed before the courts, challenging the outcome of the election to the Office of the President of the Republic of Malawi.

SADC commends the parties involved in the petition for pursuing peaceful and legal mechanisms in order to resolve the electoral dispute.

SADC condemns the actions by some sections of the Malawian community who resorted to acts of violence, intimidation and vandalism, as a way of expressing their dissatisfaction with the outcome of the Tripartite Elections.

SADC notes that the Constitutional Court of Malawi is due to deliver its judgement on the election petition challenging the outcome of the Presidential Election on 3rd February 2020.

SADC further urges all stakeholders to respect the judgement of the Constitutional Court of Malawi and to remain calm and maintain peace and order during and after the delivery of the verdict.

  1. Well an illegitimate junta genocidal maniac has advice for Malawi that has to be a joke of the future and if malawi listens they too will be a joke or f th future maybe the Malawians need a polad too to make their illegitimacy more obvious

  2. I personally I do suggest that if SADAC countries want to observe the elections of the region I recommend South Africa, Botswana, Namibia, Mauritius and Lesotho only because those countries have got a history of Democracy not other countries they are there to disrupt the choice of the people.

  3. Munangagwa, keep your mouth shut and don’t bring your Zimbabwe in Malawi. You have failed to solve the problems of your own country.
