Malawi Police arrest 22 DPP Cadets for serious assault on cops

Malawi Police on Friday arrested 22 Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) Youth Cadets for allegedly beating up and seriously injuring two police officers on duty at Tsangano Road Block in Ntcheu.

DPP cadets have a history of abductions and killings. Party cadets brandishing pangas a day before the July 20 2012 demonstrations

National Spokesperson for Malawi Police Service James Kadadzera confirmed the arrest.

It is alleged that the cadets picked up a quarrel with the officers for uttering offensive and abusive words on the law enforcers.

They were travelling to Parliament Building in Lilongwe where their party leader and Malawi President Peter Mutharika officially opened the 46th session of parliament and 2017/18 budget meeting.

Kadadzera said the arrests were made in Lilongwe and all the suspects were later released on police bail on the same day.

According to the National Police Publicist, the arrested cadets have been charged with an act that may cause grievance harm.

Apparently the ruling party gurus were demanding for their unconditional release and that charges should be dropped.

I am eagerly waiting to see how this case will conclude.

You arrested Wandale’s supporters who are fighting for a just cause and they spent almost a week in police cell without bail. But you arrest these thugs and lease them just after a minute. This happens only in Malawi.

shame to see this coming from the government side. DPP is a party of terror, I dont just see how and why we put this dangerous party in power. A party that treasures in infringing pain in people; I dont see how such a party will work to improve the lives of the people they are infringing pain. What a failed leadership the DPP has presided over.
