DPP youth wing date MCP, PP colleagues on political violence

Ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) youth wing leaders say they want to meet their counterparts from the opposition to ask them to reject violence.

Blue League official Dumisani Lindani said in Nsanje during distribution of K5 million food items.

Lindani said opposition Malawi Congress Party (MCP) and Peoples Party (PP) youth should always reject calls to take panga knives and cause violence.

“They should instead be finding ways of helping the poor as we are doing. We will be meeting them to see how they can stop engaging in violence,” said Lindani.

Lindani’s comments come barely a week after assailants caused violence during a joint MCP and PP political rally in Mzuzu.

The opposition say the DPP was sponsored the violence, an allegation vehemently denied by the ruling party.

In 2011, DPP cadets in party vehicles drove up and down Blantyre displaying panga knives as way of intimidating people not to get involved in a July 20 anti-government demonstrations.

Officials from MCP and PP are yet to comment on the offer by the DPP youth.

Lying dpp thugs. Don’t try damage limitations implying that other youths in mcp or pp are also thugs like you. You attack people in mzuzu but now trying to twist it as if it was the opposition youths doing it. You are now trying to backdown from your violence after strong criticism from peace loving Malawians. The distribution of food which you are doing is pure dpp campaign channeling stolen govt money into buying maize to distribute to the people for campaign purposes and not because you have genuine feeling of helping the suffering people. This is a shift from… Read more »

Most African political parties have been associated with lies, violence and hypocrisy. I can’t spare any of those parties that have ruled Malawi to be with clean hands. Unfortunately we can’t blame those that join politics be it on Youth League or Executive Levels. We have to have them and live with the consequences of having political parties. I have also seen some amongst them who flopped with education some to JC level and they are holding high positions in governments. They these characteristics in common:courageous and some have more wisdom and they took well calculated risks to rich the… Read more »

HYPOCRISY AT ITS BEST. WHO ARE YOU CHEATING Dumisan or or whatever you call yourself? Who doesn’t know that DPP thugs like you Dumisani are the ones who carry panga knives and disorganize other parties’ rallies?
