This comes just days after similar issues arose in the Central Region, fueling riggings claims ahead of the forthcoming presidential elections.
The main opposition Malawi Congress Party (MCP) and its bedfellow United Transformation Movement (UTM) are accusing the ruling Democratic progressive Party (DPP) of being behind the syndicate.
But the ruling DPP has refuted the claims, saying the party is geared to win the forthcoming fresh Presidential polls.
