Malawi presidential election: Lazarus Chakwera declared winner

Malawi’s opposition leader has won the rerun of the presidential election.
Lazarus Chakwera got just under 59 percent of the vote.
That makes him the first African opposition leader to win power in a court-ordered rerun.

Al Jazeera’s Haru Matusa reports on an historic moment for African democracy.

    All the best Malawi! Love from India ❤

  • i a says:

    Couple years later you hear people protesting want to get rid of him they will label him as crupted leader etc

    • About2Take A RedPill says:

      what’s your point? You pessimist

    • i a says:

      @About2Take A RedPill I will reply to you when the White label this man as mass murderer or crupt leader

    • About2Take A RedPill says:

      @i a we cant rule out the fact that he is a human. We are expecting some errors of coz but hopeful for the better, anticipating problems without a proper basis is a negative attitude which cant be tolerated. If you set a negative precedent in your or anyone’s life, that eventually happens. Thats how nature works, so try to be positive atleast once

  • Pan African channel Black Emancipation ipation says:

    And it went well without any international so call observa..

  • World of Wisdom says:

    Same corruption and nepotism, different administration. Sadly, that’s the African way ☹😗

    • TRTK PT says:

      You too negative. Things change. Im happy for Malawians.. Look at covid 19 the west is hit hard and failing something we never thought of. Its time for Africa

    • Bob Wanjala says:

      You must be a fool or a member of the KKK to come up with that kind of opinion. Corruption and nepotism is not in anyway an African tradition, but a disease of the pale people. Look at What Donald Trump does in the United states.

    • Luso Langa says:

      Shingi Kim Yes we keep on dreaming. It was our dream collectively that brought down the mafia corrupt government of Muntharika. So yes we have a dream in Malawi and we manifest our dreams into existence.

    • highly favored says:

      @Luso Langa Exactly

    • highly favored says:

      That “African way” you talk about has been challenged and cast down.

  • S Hussein says:

    I hope this is a new dawn for Malawi 🇲🇼
    Malawi is a poor aid dependent country there is no dignity in that.

    • Benjamin Chimpeni says:

      You think they would allow us to stop getting aid ? Most aid has strings attached and those strings are where where a select few get benefits

    • Shingi Kim says:

      I couldn’t agree more…

    • Luke Zalimba says:

      @Benjamin Chimpeni …Absolutely spot on!

  • Share knowledge Now says:

    All politics for selfish benefits.

  • Shingi Kim says:

    This victory is not for Chakwera, neither is it for Malawians but rather awkward marriage of convenience between Chakwera and Chilima. It’s not long before they fallout and become archenemies just like Bakili and Bingu, or should I say Bingu and Joyce otherwise Peter and Saulos also followed the same path. This is a rite of passage to Malawian politics and come 2025 Chilima and Chakwera will not be sleeping in the same bed…it’s obvious they’re not sharing the same even as of now. From MCP to DPP to PP to MCP/UTM to what comes next…it’s all but breakaways between the same people with same ideologies and same corrupt and SELFISH ways. Let’s see someone build a party from scratch without having to breakaway from the sitting president and if that person wins, then it’s indeed a grand victory for Malawi and it will set an example for other African countries as well.
