Army barracks to host HRDC, Attorney General talks

Human Rights Defenders Coalition (HRDC) officials and the Attorney General court sanctioned talks over peaceful protests have now shifted to Kamuzu Barracks in Lilongwe.

Attorney General Kalekeni Kaphale to meet HRDC

HRDC chairperson Timothy Mtambo has confirmed the talks resumes on Wednesday in the high security Kamuzu Barracks.

“We chose the venue for security reasons. We have trust in our soldiers, we will feel secure there. The MDF soldiers successfully protect our country and they will protect us too,” said Mtambo.

The choice of Kamuzu Barracks as venue for the talks follows grenade scare reports during last meeting at Cross Roads Hotel.

HRDC claimed a man had planted a grenade in Mtambo’s vehicle before he was chased away by HRDC security men, a claim dismissed by the government as fantancy talk as the hotel was well secured by the police.

During the Cross Roads Hotel meeting, the two sides had agreed on some procedures to be followed when holding peaceful demonstrations to avoid a repeat of violence which destroyed some property and injured some people.

The meeting follows an order made by Justice Lovemore Chikopa of the Malawi Supreme Court of Appeal that the two parties must, within 14 days, hold negotiations to on how HRDC can exercise the constitutional right to demonstrate without violence and crime.

Section 38 of the Republican Constitution guarantees that every person shall have the right to assemble and demonstrate with others peacefully and unarmed.

The HRDC, which has been holding demonstrations since the announcement of the May 21 presidential election results, wants Ansah to resign to pave the way for investigations into identifying and prosecuting those who supplied Tippex that was used to alter election figures on result sheets.

You are very correct. Only the gullible will believe Mtambo’s planks. Akuti munthu amayika bomba mu galimoto mwanga koma tamuthamangitsa wathawa. Aaa sure? Reminds me of Kamlepo and his abduction drama. They think Malawians are fools

Malawi Army must be very very careful with HRDC, should not involve themselves with these Rascals,
they are not mandated by any Malawian to speak for them, they dont have any legal mandate to represent anyone and Malawi Army must not involve themselves in any Political squables. Mtambo Trapence, Sembereka are people who are trying to cause political instability in the Country being used by Politicians

What political instability are you referring to? So you hate them to an extent that you would love see them dead?. Why not Malawi Army provide security to our human right defenders? That’s their role to provide security to the state and these patriotic citizens that you have mentioned are part of the state. Ooowo! So you recognise the role of the army when it goes for peace keeping in DRC and not to serve Malawians? Shallow thinking! You are blind man!! You see three individuals but people of good will see millions Malawian in them.
