Chakwera’s cross examination to start Tuesday next week

Malawi Congress Party (MCP) President Dr. Lazarus Chakwera who is also the second complainant in the ongoing Presidential case is expected start being cross-examined next week Tuesday.

The development follows the decision by the first complainant Dr. Saulos Chilima of United Transformation Movement (UTM) to withdraw the remaining witnesses totaling to 34 on mutual grounds.

Soon after the Constitutional Court resumed hearing of the case on Thursday, in which Chilima and Malawi Congress Party (MCP) leader Lazarus Chakwera are seeking nullification of the May 21 Presidential Elections, lead lawyer for UTM, Chikosa Silungwe, announced that his side was presenting no more witnesses.

“It is imperative to the desire of expedited court proceedings on the matter,” said Silungwe.

The development forced the panel of 5 Judges presiding over the case to adjourn the case to Tuesday next to allow the second complainant to prepare for the case.
