The constitutional court hearing petition case in Lilongwe told opposition Malawi Congress Party (MCP) presidential hopeful Lazarus Chakwera in the witness stand to be audible when testifying as court reporters were having problems to record his answers.
Justice Healey Potani, chair of the five judges panel told Chakwera who wants nullification of the May 21 2019 presidential election and an order for a rerun that court reporters showed that they were struggling to record his responses in the cross- examination from Attorney General Kalekeni Kaphale representing Malawi Electoral Commission.
Potani said Chakwera was not audible enough and wondered if it was his phony American accent.
He advised Chakwera to improve on his audibility.
Chakwera is known as a man of style when it comes to speaking with his American accent.
Chakwera who is a second petitioner in the case is also asking the court to nullify the results of the May 21 Presidential Election as he is saying they were not conducted according to the constitution.
