MCP accuses DPP cadets of beating up opposition in Malawi police presence

Lilongwe north east MP Maxwell Thyolera on Thursday accused the ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) cadets of beating opposition Malawi Congress Party  (MCP) members in full view of police officers.

DPP cadets caught on camera recently assualting a person beleived to be a critic of government. Police did not o anything to the regime thugs

Thyolera, who is also director of elections in the MCP,  said this in parliament during question time.

He  said an MCP member was beaten up during Chilembwe Day comemoration in Chiradzulu.

“The opposition members are beaten in full view of police, in the presence of the Head of State,” said Thyolera.

He also said another opposition member was beaten up at Kamuzu International Airport in Lilongwe and the police took no action.

Home Affairs minister Grace Chiumia said the party should have reported the matter to a nearest police station.

MCP ‘s Dzoole Mwale , MP for Lilongwe Msozi South querried  the Minister of Home Affairs and Internal Affairs.

“I think this is a serious issue.  When we have a Presidential function, we are supposed to have heavy security provided by the police. Now, events are taking place, people  are being beaten up in the presence of the police and yet the Minister is telling this House that when we, Members of Parliament, see somebody being beaten up we should  rush to the police, when it just watches people being beaten up.  Is that security? ”

Information minister Nicholas Dausi said during the Chilembwe Day incident that the MCP member was distributing party materials during the function, saying it was “illogical and inconceivable” to do that.

MCP deputy secretary general Eisenhowver Mkaka denied this allegation. The victim was treated as an outpatient at Queen Elizabeth Central Hospital in Blantyre.

Ma Cadet amadzimva kwambiri! They have already forgotten that power can be taken away from the DPP by fate, just like it happened in 2012.
My only prayer is that theseguys should one day pay for their crimes.


Should have reported the matter to the nearest police station? The police were there, stupid!! Honestly this country needs to start again somewhere. Get rid of all the old and rotten politicians!!!!


Aaaa!! Honorable Dausi, your IQ is very small . How can you give such a stupid answer is parliament.

Distributing MCP party materials on Chilembwe Day is ‘illogical and inconceivable’, therefore is it punishable. What chapter of of our constitution says that? If it’s not in our constitution, Honorable Dausi get ready to face us in court when you are out of government.


Hon. Thyolera a lot of money has been donated by well wishing UK to reform our Police but, alas, the police end up being DEFORMED
