Social media reacts to verdict

MADISE—Today, history has been made

The Constitutional Court ruling on the presidential election case attracted mixed reactions on social media last evening.

Most people described the court’s nullification of the May 21 presidential election results as a victory for Malawians.

Posting on facebook page, Stanley Kenani, who has a big following, wrote: “ConCourt has saved this country from anarchy! God bless our Judges!”

The United Kingdom-based journalist, Peter Makossah chose to be poetic about the court’s call for fresh election.

Makossah wrote: “Elections that never were, a Vice President that never was, never is, never should have been and will never be…

“No one will ever rig elections in Malawi again. The bar has been raised. The rule of law has prevailed. Shall always do in-as-far-as elections are concerned. Malawi has set an amplified example to the world that there is no place for electoral fraud.”

In another post, a legal practitioner said justice had won but called for caution saying more needed to be done to ensure change in the country’s electoral processes.

Dean of Law at Chancellor College, Sunduzwayo Madise, went academic describing yesterday’s ruling as “a momentous occasion for the Faculty of Law of the University of Malawi.

“Today, history has been made. The decision of the court is gigantic.

“However, it is the jurisprudence that this case has birthed that will reverberate across time and space. The Faculty is proud to be associated with the court as well as counsel for the petitioners and counsel for the respondents.”
