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).
