Cadets petrol bomb UTM vehicle: Malawi political violence rears its ugly face 

Some political thugs, believed to be the governing Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) youth cadets, have petrol bombed a UTM  Party vehicle.

The vehicle was used by the party director of Women for Eastern region Shahida Hussein.

Hussein said the vehicle and part of her house were petrol bombed around 1am on Sunday.

UTM secretary general Patricia Kaliati, the party national organizing secretary Willet Karonga and campaign director Lucius Banda went to the  crime scene.

“This is very unfortunate and  we won’t  fall back  no matter how more they intimidate us . We will win,” said Kaliati.

There is an upsurge of political violence in the country ahead of the Constitutional Court sanctioned presidential election on July 2.

Malawi Police Service has come under fire, especially from opposition parties, civil society organisations and Malawi Law Society, for turning a blind eye to cases of political violence notably against opposition sympathisers.

Some political thugs believed to be DPP youth cadets……. Clearly shows no evidence! It’s just a belief. It could be themselves the UTM in their strategy to paint a negative picture of DPP.

DPP stop this Madness you will live to regret!!!!!! Stop provoking angry Malawians. Once malawians start reacting your space will be narrowed and you will be crashed!!!!! I was there in 1958, 1992-3 and I am still around and I know how Malawians react.

Mulhako Regime Kicking Ass

Violence is the only economic plan this tribalistic government has in place for the Malawian people. This Mulhako regime is at a desperate point even if Malawi goes to a civil war; Lomwes don’t give a fuck. The Mulhako regime feels like Malawi must be ruled by the Lomwe tribes and not other tribes or region. The best solution in this scenario is to split Malawi into three countries and let every region be independent. We can’t live together as one people. The DPP regime is busy rigging the elections and I don’t see any free and fair elections coming… Read more »

Has the bombing started again in Malawi? We need UN and African Union peace keepers as soon as possible before it is too late. I see Rwanda type of genocide coming.

Anthu okanidwa inu. You have nothing to offer Malawians. Lucius Banda and Patricia Kaliati reached their expiry date. Accept that you are expired products on the market dumped by your own constituents.

Lego don’t pretend to be clever and intelligent when you’re not! By tagging Joloza’s comment, one needs to understand that Jose was merely reacting to Joloza’s comment that said and I quote “Lucius Banda and Patricia Kaliati reached their expiry date!” and from nowhere you claim that the issue he is reacting to has to be on petrol bombed things not about personal hatred!! Zikugwuruzana? Do you follow and or know the meaning of tagging somebody’s message? Nde mbuli ndani? Awansoooooooooooooooo! Its you who is dull and full of hatred!

Zaboza izi, expect more to come during the upcoming presidential polls. People sacrifices all they have just to paint a bad picture on someone. So nothing new…..
Politics is a dirty game, blame game, A circus etc….

staged like what Ntambo did to win sympathy. These parties UTM and MCP are building excuses in the run up to elections. They know they will loose the elections hence they are preparing their supporters with such stupid excuses. You managed to bribe the judges to rule in your favour but you can not manage to bribe the voters to vote in your favour. We all know that you have Nsundwe boys planning all these self inflicted arsons. One would wonder how Kalonga, Bonny Kalimdo, Lucious Banda and Kaliati found themselves on sight within minutes of the incident. This was… Read more »

This kind of brutality is uncalled for. We all Malawians, and need to exist and live peacefully with each other regardless of our political affiliations. And this point I blame HRDC for making Violence a new norm in Malawi.
