The Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) has denied claims by UTM President Saulos Chilima that former Zimbabwe Police Commissioner General Augustine Chihuri is in the Malawi to help the Democratic Progressive Party rig the elections.
Speaking to members of the Press in Blantyre on Monday afternoon, MEC Chairperson Justice Jane Ansah said the allegations made are baseless.
Ansah explained that their findings reveal that Chihuri married a Malawian woman but he is not in the country.
The former Zimbabwean Police Commissioner is believed to have fled from Zimbabwe after the fall of Robert Mugabe and sort asylum in Malawi.
Speaking on the issue of security during the elections in Malawi, Justice Ansah explained that there is a shortfall of officers hence deploying of prison warders and Immigration officials as a way of ensuring security.
The MEC Chairperson urged Malawians to remain calm and get set for voting tomorrow (21/05/2019).
UTM leader through his presser on Sunday alleged that the ruling party has planned to train security personnel through Chihuri to help in rigging.
Chilima also demanded the deportation of the former Zimbabwe police chief.
