Network glitches force Constitutional Court to adjourn to 1pm Presidential polls case


The sixth witness for Lazarus Chakwera in the high-profile presidential election case, Daud Suleman, has failed to start testifying in the case this morning due to network failure.

On Tuesday, the constitutional court thrown out the application by Attorney General Kalekeni Kaphale for the court to vary the order allowing Malawi Congress Party witness, Daudi Suleman, to use gadgets and systems server during his cross examination.

Reading the determination, Justice Redson Kapindu said much as Malawi Electoral Commission has raised issues of security, such issue was already looked at in its order during the hearing of Suleman’s application in September.

When the case resumed this morning, Suleman failed to start testifying in the case due to network glitches forcing the court to adjourn to 1pm.

Attorney General Kalekeni Kaphale said technical staffs are yet to set up a VPN that is used for transmission, as well as network set up.

Meanwhile the ConCourt has given MEC until this afternoon to prepare the gadgets for Suleman to use.
