DPP clears youth cadets from violence

The ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) has  distanced its youths ‘cadets’ from reports that they have been demolishing stalks and other structures belonging to vendors believed to be followers of People’s Party(PP).

DPP youth no longer violent

DPP publicity Secretary,  Francis Kasaila told Nyasa Times in an interview that his party  has carried out “detailed investigations” on the matter and that findings indicates no linkage with the party at all.

“Our investigations have revealed that the issue at the Limbe market is purely business matter and as a party we cannot be speaking  on issues which have nothing to do with the party,” Said Kasaila.

Kasaila said on Mzuzu issue where a DPP cadres jumped from the cruising vehicle and beat up a man for insulting the President Peter Mutharika, Kasaila said investigations have revealed that the boys were sent by other people from other political parties.

“These other party buy DPP T-shirts and give to our youths and they start violence in order to tarnish the image of the party,” Kasaila claimed. He did not name the party.

“The policy of the DPP is that the party shall never use the youths in acts of violence,” said Kasaila despite the known record of violent DPP youth.

Kasaila warned other parties which he said use youths and disguise them so  to stop using DPP colours to advance their agenda,” Said Kasaila.

During the incident in Blantyre property worth over K2 million was damaged.

The matter was reported to Police but no one has been arrested so far.

Last Thursday, violence reared his ugly head when DPP youth clad in their party colours, some wielding panga knives, gatecrashed PP rally that was being addressed by northern region chairperson Reverend Chimwemwe Mzomera Ngwira in Chitipa.

DPP youth’s actions are said to have angered PP supporters who immediately sought to eject them from the meeting, but attracted the wrath of the ruling party youth who started a fight.

In Mzuzu  DPP cadres last  Wednesday jumped off the governing party’s branded pick-up in Mzuzu and beat up a bicycle taxi operator for allegedly insulting the party and President Peter Mutharika.

The mob descended on John Mphande, 31, around 11am when he termed DPP a club of thieves as the blue pickup passed by National Bank of Malawi Mzuzu Service Centre around 11.30pm.

Mphande was feeling pain all over his body but would not seek medical attention for fear of being arrested or suffering further assault.

University of Malawi political professor Blessings Chinsinga described the provocation as hardly serious enough to warrant a beating likely to remind Malawians about the ugly scenes of intolerance and impunity DPP supporters unleashed on Malawians during the late Bingu wa Mutharika’s rule.

    Typical dpp response!! So everyone is stealing or buying their dpp uniforms and then give to dpp youth thugs to cause havoc or other parties put on dpp uniform and cause havoc so that dpp is blamed?

    Those stupid thugs are your own youths you send to disrupt other parties meetings because you are fearing federalism or fearing other parties rallies to educate people about federalism or general incompetence of dpp govt!! So you resort to what you dpp people know and comes naturally, violence!! Shame on you dpp people.

  13. Utsiru sachitakugula says:

    I am really perplexed at how our intelligence is being insulted by the so called party spokesperson. Is it so difficult to offer an APOLOGY and promise the nation that you will deal with your Cadets? Should we believe you that your Cadets are SAINTS and never engage in violence. Com’on be real. You are inviting trouble abwana and when Malawian turn on your Cadets it will be too late to reverse your empty defence

    Never say you were not warned

  14. dzina langa says:

    a Katsaila ndinu a chitsiru. mukukana chani. Have you forgotted how your boys paraded panga knives on 19th July this other year. Next time if we see them again we will not spare them but kill one as exhibit. tiwone ngati mudzakane maliro anu.

  17. Gameover says:

    Just a word of caution to Mr Kasayila be honest with your speech more especially with the position you are holding so if you say these boys were sent by other party and were just given t. shirts of your party’s colour so how did they access the DPP vehicle , who was driving this vehicle, and who authorised the release of the vehicle?

  18. zoshola says:

    mfiti munaiona ikuvomera? DPP mwaiwala kale?Paja Mulungu alibe psete akukanthani kachiwiri

  19. Mnyasaland says:

    Honorable Kasaila we don’t want you to come and hear to admiti that DPP Cadets were the ones who caused violence in the said places if some will be appearing before court unless you are sure you will play your usual culprits shielding tricks.As a matter of interest how can members of other parties wear DPP T Shirts and be couragious enough to be in a DPP vehicle for the purpose of turnishing the image of your party. That is a clear lie and you need to be ashamed of cuase you are not refuting the allegation to kindergatens. Kadauluka tsiku lina kadzatera, that is what is going to happen to DPP. Your evil deeds are a contributing factor of failure to the timely rains. You have brought curse to this country right from rigging to current unstable situation in this peaceful country. Shame on youuuuuuuuuuuuuu DPP.

  20. cleophas phiri says:

    are machetes associated with peace Mr kasaila. what a contradictory govt.hypocrisy is what is eating up your govt and soon it will fall. I can even predict that January will not come to an end before your govt and President fall…

  21. HILL says:

    Francis, nsete ndikukamwa komwe. ayayayaaaaaa

  22. chaiwone wawo says:

    We are told the cadets had to jump from a DPP vehicle, did the other parties buy the vehicle as well. It does not make sense to claim other parties bought DPP t-shirts and gave them to violent youth to tarnish image of the party. Prove to us that the vehicle was also bought by other parties

  23. dadaboma says:

    Other parties using DPP’s colours terrorizing people? What about the DPP vehicle used in the violent acts? Was it also other parties vehicle clad in DPP colours? Kasaila, I didn’t know you’re such idiot! Your party investigated and found no evidence of DPP youths involved? Can your party investigate anything and come up with honest findings? Kasaila, Kunsaila also behaved the same as you’re doing, where is he? Stop taking us for granted – we can also be violent against you and your party one day in retaliation.

  24. John says:

    Ok aupanduwo sanali a DPP. Zovala zomwe anavala anangovekedwa ndi a zipani zina. Nanga galimoto yomwe anakwerayo inali yachipani chiti choposa DPP?

  25. dambobanda says:

    so interesting ” These other party buy DPP T-shirts and give to our youths and they start violence in order to tarnish the image of the party”. paragraph number 5. r u out of ur mind sir francis?

  26. Happening boy says:

    Katsaila, I used to respect you but unfortunately you have lost my respect because you have become stupid because of politics. How can you say the boys in a dpp vehicle were from other parties,very stupid statement. It is high time you discipline your thugs otherwise time will come when your thugs will be plucked one by one, we have a way but respect yourself.

  27. clement says:

    Yeah we shall keep on beating you uness you stop insulting our party.Why not learn from the past?Let’s practice clean politics not provoking our president.

  28. Kanyeramboma says:

    Are we really saying that the other Parties can afford to give enough incentives to DPP cadets than the ruling Party. How about the vehicle itself?

  29. Gum says:

    Why should one insult the President in front of his supporters? Learn to do that in your bedrooms. Everyone has the rights!

  38. Think Tank says:

    shut up Kasaila. That line of refutal is too old to carry any truth. We know dpp cadres are violent lot.

  39. Greencardless Malawian says:

    You can fool some of the people some of the times but you cannot fool all the people all the time.

    Very stupid comment.How can other parties give your party colours clothes to their supporters and get on DPP vehicle,Hon minister does this make sense? What a big lie?The party of death and darkness,One day you will regret, God is watching.

  46. Dusty says:

    Everybody knows that its ddp.

  47. Ngozi pa Ngodzi says:

    A Kasaila kodi munaphunzitsako pa sukulu ya nkaka eti bwanji mukulankhula ngati mukuwauza ma under aged kids?its very easy to say sory why cant you do that?

  48. Alfred Munduwabo says:

    Go ahead and you will not controll the civil war which you want to start.
    If DPP can’t control strikes which are taking place with the few organisations what more with the civil wars which they themselves are iginiting in Malawi , is Peter and his party going to control this serious and barbaric national issue ? Please Malawi belongs to Malawians and if you have failed to govern and rule Malawi just salader peacefully and ask real Malawians with loving senses to takeover the leadership.
    33% percent which voted Peter and his DPP into power can’t fight the 67% , it is where the DPP rigged government has to be very carefully , nothing is moving in Malawi and don’t annoy Malawians by starting the civil war.

  49. PP Propaganda says:

    There is no way a sane person can disrupt the rally of the other party while dressed in his/her party regalia. It was obvious that they are not DPP supporters.

  50. Kadakwiza says:

    People are watching, Mr. Spokesperson. One day is one day.

    1. ine says:

      History of parties in Malawi tells that there is NO any party that accepted ownership of wrong doing of its supporters, DPP ndiye nyanyi, Nanga otsika DPP branded vehicle; galimoto anakagulanso?

      Mr Spokesman, your defence points lack substance. angamvere zimenezi ndi ndani?

  51. You will reap what you plant.

  52. Alfred says:

    Sitinaiwaletu khanza zanu inu!!! Sadziwa ndani kuti kwanu kutsutsa?
