Chakwera: DPP is anti-democracy

During his trip abroad, Chakwera was unanimously voted Vice President of the Portugal based Political Parties grouping, Christian Democratic Institute (CDI) International.

This is the first time for Malawi to receive such recognition by this high profile political institution.

However, while returning from the trip, Chakwera faced heavy resistance from the Malawi Police who closed all entrance heading to the Kamuzu International Airport.

Police declared a no go zone to all vehicles having symbols or flags  of the MCP, saying they e received orders from above.

But when one of the NEC members MP  Lowe called Ministry  of Foreign Affairs, it was transpired that the ministry was not aware of the arrangement of blocking the MCP members, let alone Chakwera from using the mini stadium.

When the Police were slowly being overpowered by the angry MCP supporters, the senior officers called for reinforcement.

This was when Police  dispatched the armoured vehicle locally known as Chimbaula to quell the situation.

At this time Chakwera had already alighted from the plane and his convoy drove straight outside the Airport where the members had gathered.

In his brief speech, Chakwera accused the DPP led government of being anti-democrcay.

“ DPP government using Police to harass and intimidate  the unarmed Malawians. They should use police to fight criminal gangs,” he said.

Chakwera said DPP is fearing the unknown that is why they are even fearing the ordinary party members.
