Currently dealing with the challenges of running an administration with a minority in the National Assembly, a new headache for the Kenya Kwanza Alliance seems nigh following reports that a change of regime precipitated by circumstances such as those which were in Malawi may presently be under planning.
CEO and owner of Sababia Copper Mining and Sifan Logistics Mr. Nafis Mohammed took to Twitter to allege that not only will Kenya go through what Malawi went through in 2019 and 2020, but that the plan is already in motion. His tweet read,
Nafis Mohamed. ￼￼￼ THE AFRICAN.
Dear Kenyans. Kenya will go through What Malawi went through in 2019 and 2020. The script is well written.
In Malawi, a rerun of the 2019 election was ordered after the Constitutional Court found the original ballot had been marred by widespread irregularities.
That election saw President Mutharika narrowly re-elected by fewer than 159,000 votes.
Mr Chakwera, who came second in that election, argued that tallying forms had been added up incorrectly and tampered with.
Uncertainty around the result sparked months of tension, which spilled over into clashes between opposition supporters and police.
The February 2020 annulment led some to celebrate, but Mr Mutharika described it as a “serious subversion of justice” which marked the death of the country’s democracy.
There were concerns over the logistics and safety of carrying out an election in the midst of the worldwide coronavirus pandemic.
Lazarus Chakwera’s political fortunes were revived by the court ruling that annulled the flawed election. He would later on win the rerun which was held in mid-2020.
He defeated incumbent Peter Mutharika with 58.57% of the vote, the electoral commission announced.
The country had been bitterly divided in the run-up to the election.
It was the second African nation to annul a presidential election over irregularities, after Kenya in 2017.
Following the official result, Mr Chakwera said his victory was “a win for democracy and justice,” adding: “My heart is bubbling with joy.”
His supporters took to the streets of the Malawian capital, Lilongwe, sounding car horns and letting off fireworks.
