Magwanga’s supporters claim that the results were doctored and have therefore taken to the streets to protest.

Magwanga is questioning the disparity between the votes in the gubernatorial and senatorial positions.

They claim that winners were announced even as some polling stations failed to deliver results to the regional tallying centre. The party’s National Election Board is yet to release a statement about these allegations.
