Former President of Malawi Congress Party, John Zenas Ungapake Tembo, says it is only fair that Malawi Electoral Commission chairperson, Dr. Jane Ansah, should heed calls to step down.
Tembo said this in an exclusive interview with Zodiak Online at his Lilongwe residence Thursday.
He said Malawi has adequate professionals who can take up and ably perform the duties of that office at the MEC and as such, whatever the consideration, there has been adequate noise to warrant her vacating the office.
Tembo, fondly called JZU, has requested people of Malawi to desist violence and prepare to accept the ruling of the courts in the presidential election case currently before the Constitutional Court in Lilongwe.
He stressed that his appeal is on both sides of the isle in the political dispute.
Tembo is in retirement after stepping down as MCP president in 2017 when he handed office to Dr. Lazarus Chakwera.
