United Transformation Movement (UTM) party has been fined MK600, 000 in the ongoing Presidential polls case, Faceofmalawi can reveal.
The fine is for the partyâ€™s delay in submitting its final written submissions in the much anticipated Presidential case.
UTM as a first petitioner in the election case was given up to 4:30 PM Tuesday, December to file and serve its final written submissions.
But according to the court document, UTM failed to meet the deadline and has been ordered to pay a fine of K300, 000 kwacha to first respondent, President Peter Mutharika and another MK300, 000 to second respondent.
The court has since given UTM 7 days to make its final submission.
The case is scheduled to resume on December 19 for oral submission.
