Anti-Martha Chizuma protests which were expected to take place today, Friday, have been put on hold until next week to allow for a presidential function in Lilongwe, organisers have said.
A group of concerned citizens was planning to hold the Anti-Martha Chizuma demonstrations in Lilongwe today.
The grouping trading under the banner ‘𝙢𝙯𝙞𝙠𝙖 𝙯𝙤𝙠𝙝𝙪𝙙𝙯𝙞𝙙𝙬𝙖’ want ACB Director Martha Chizuma fired with immediate effect for violating her oath of office in the leaked telephone conversation.
Billy Malata, one of the organizers said they have postponed the demos as the City is busy today with the President’s engagements.
“Yesterday, we had a meeting with the Lilongwe District Council and the Malawi Police was also present, so considering the President’s trip to Luanar, we agreed that we move the demos to next week. This has been done for security reasons.” Said Malata.
He emphasized that the demos have not been cancelled as they are planning to hold the demos next week Monday.
The group was today planning to present their petition at Parliament through Public Appointments Committee (PAC) and another petition to the office of the President to remove Chizuma.
