Chakwera risks arrest over ‘bloodshed’ insurrection plot with HRDC
Malawi Congress Party (MCP) president Lazarus Chakwera risks arrest and prosecution as President Peter Mutharika on Sunday accused him of plotting insurrection through violence using the party’s supporters way before the May 21 2019 elections.
Mutharika said on Sunday that the protest marches and violence perpetrated by alleged MCP supporters in some areas in the aftermath the May 21 Tripartite Elections were part of the plan Chakwera had with Human Rights Defenders Coalition (HRDC).
The President was speaking at a political mass rally his Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) and alliance partners United Democratic Front (UDF) held at Njamba Freedom Park in Blantyre.
He said Chakwera’s master plan was to make Malawi an ungovernable State of lawlessness.
Mutharika said he has listened to an audio clip in which Chakwera and HRDC members were discussing the plot, in which MCP president was overheard talking about “bloodshed” if he loses the presidential elections.
Nyasa Times understands that the law enforcers have the audio clip and would pursue the matter by interrogating Chakwera.
The President alleged that Chakwera was orchestrating violence and “bloodshed” in the country to bring chaos.
He said Chakwera, who finished second to him in the presidential race, had already plotted to organise violent protests.
Mutharika said Chakwera and HRDC had plotted to create chaos and civil unrest using lives of unsuspecting innocent Malawians to take over government by violence.
I dont see any truest MDF commander can clap hands for peter at njamba ONLY police can do it because most of them are not TUMBUKAS and take care guys. MDF want peace and not bloodshed and have many issues to handle. peter should not be talking of Army please.
Leave him and see what mutharika saw and where is the police now.kadadzera is still seeking promotion and teach his children and dress his wife and where is bingu now.
Chakwera should be arrested because he is inciting violence.
Let all of them be ARESTED (HRDC leaders, MCP) so that we can have peace. They have been terrorising us, destroying our businesses
Cadet walila mokweza!!!
Let Malawians bring true democracy and not this type of undemocratic rule.
MUTHARIKA IS MAD!!!!!
I see DPP wants chaos, let them bring it own. We will die for posterity’s future. No more nepotism, no more tribalism. We are tired of your nonsensical thieving and looting. Remember when Malawians are tired, they are unstoppable. Bring it own, remember 20 July 2011. Bring it own. Apolice mulipo angati mdziko, mfuti mukudalirazo mulinazo zingati. Mutha kupha anthu angati. If you want bloodshed, we are ready to push back.We cant let APM and his band of thugs run this country into an abyss. I stay we stand ready to defend what our martyrs bestowed on us. Shuppit!
APM with his police want bloodshed in Malawi because of re- run. Try to arrest Chakwera and see for yourself. This police you rely cannot stand to war. Ulemu ulibe watopa ndi ufulu we know very well that you want to run away from your own people
Hallucinations… Where is Boko Halam? APM previous sentiments linking the opposition to Boko Halam went away silently
APM has been having nightmares. APM is feeling the heat. This man has destroyed the country. By arresting people he is only making them heros and more popular.
Mumangenso Thom chakufwa chihana bwana pitala amenenso ananena Kuti akulolela Kuti mwazi wake ukhale engine ya mafuma oyendetsela ufulu wa democracy. This was the sacrifice of himself Kuti chilungamo chioneke osati mudzipanga ndale apa. He said has even sacrificed himself even if to die he will die that doesn’t killing anyone.
