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 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.
