Church and Society of CCAP Livingstonia Synod Endorses HRDC Demos


The Church and Society of Central Africa Presbyterian Church (CCAP) Livingstonia Synod has endorsed Anti-Ansah demonstrations by Human Rights Defenders Coalition (HRDC slated for May 28, 2020.

Church and Society Executive Director, Moses Mkandawire, wonders why Jane Ansah, Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) chairperson and President Peter Mutharika are protecting each other after Malawians lost trust and confidence in them.

Mkandawire said that the reason behind their support for the demonstrations is to ensure that Malawians are defending the democracy they fought for some years back.

“Why is Jane Ansah not resigning today? And it is extremely important for the Head of State to make a decision for her and the entire MEC,” wonders Mkandawire.

Mkandawire added that if Ansah had stuck to her promise that she will resign if Constitutional Court rules against them, the country would have not underwent the serious wave of demonstrations.

“I don’t think the demonstration would be there because she promised the people that she would resign at the time the Constitutional Court would make its ruling,” Mkandawire said.

Mkandawire further called upon the legislature as the arm of government to chart the way forward regarding the date for the next polls, saying the importance of the date does not need overemphasis.

Meanwhile, Speaker of the National Assembly, Catherine Gotani Hara, has confirmed penning the President on the need for the House to convene.

Since 20 June, 2019, HRDC has been holding nationwide demonstrations demanding an immediate resignation of MEC’s Chairperson and all the commissioners, saying they failed to run the May 2019 tripartite polls professionally.

However, Ansah and the commissioners have since not succumbed to the pressure.
