Attorney General back to court over HRDC demos

Attorney General (AG)  Kalekeni Kaphale says he would seek court direction following the decision by the Human Rights Defenders Coalition (HRDC) to hold a new wave of anti-Jane Ansah protests.

Kaphale: Seeking court’s direction

HRDC chairperson Timothy Mtambo said the new wave of the demonstrations will be held from September 18 to 20.

But the Attorney General office says in a statement the government is dismayed with the new round of the demonstrations before the negotiations that were sanctioned by the Supreme Court were concluded.

“The government had hoped that the parties would re-engage to sort out the differences before going back to court for the final guidance on the matter,” says the statement.

The statement says the government wanted HRDC to sort out issues of adequate marshals during demos and provision of vehicles to carry the protesters after the demonstrations.

But HRDC lawyer Khwima Chizi dismissed the statement, saying the rights activists are holding the protests at the expiry of the 14-day court moratorium.

He said the court did not order HRDC never to hold protests again.

Kaphale please make your case strong enough to ban these demos forever! These lazy bones are disturbing the patriotic Malawians who are conducting innocent businesses. Ngati Ali madolo osapita kunyumba kwa Jane Ansah ko akapange ma demo bwanji? Why victimise the already poor souls

The Attorney general is working like a messenger of the party, all of this , is to defend the Tipex Government, shame! Next week you are meeting Dr Chakwera while you are there, Timothy and the Team of all Malawians will be on the road to clear the way of the new Malawi.

These bastards have grown big heads because they are taking advantage of the uneducated and unemployed Malawians.. Who in his right senses in a country where there is no social security would spend all the time in the streets instead of working.

AG you were told to hold your discussions & report back to the supreme court before expiry of 14 days so why didnt you go back to court before the 14 days meritorium? Mungofuna mudzitidoda a Malawi basi instead of doing the needful that Malawians employed your for.
