CHRR condemns police brutality of beating people without masks

Malawi Police in Lilongwe  have gone on rampage, beating up and assaulting people without masks as the law enforcers are enforcing the Covid-19 preventive measures.

Kaiyatsa: Police brutality unacceptable

The situation is bad in Old Town but we have reports that those without masks are also beaten up and assaulted in some townships as well.

Meanwhile, the Centre for Human Rights and Rehabilitation (CHRR) has condemned reports of police using force by beating up people on the streets to enforce Covid-19 preventive measures .

In a statement signed by CHRR executive director Michael Kaiyatsa, the human rights grouping has observed that on Tuesday and today some officers harrassed drivers and beat up  pedestrians for not wearing masks.

The statement observes that use of violence by police will not yield any results but rather there is need for cooperation between law enforcers and the community .

The statement adds that use of excessive force and human rights violations by police will not be tolerated. CHRR has urged Minister of Homeland Security to ask the officers to refrain from the alleged violations.

since we are already brutalizing covid spreaders. why dont the police just go ahead and kill these people on site so that you brain dead apes can live while sucking in your own matemba smelling breaths. So people who don’t wear masks are more dangerous than the criminal acts of the police. Malawians are really cursed.

Iyi ndiye nthawi yoti apolice agwiritse mphamvu sizosekereranso. Awaponde kwambiri they criminals akufuna kuphetsa anthu pofalitsa Corona. Mask up a Malawi. Army ituluke ku Baracks iwonetse ntchito osati kumawala mumatata ndi mayinifomu. Tione boots yowala bwino pondani yese oyenda pagulu opanda mask.

You are making this noise because you have not seen how other countries that have been hit hard by Covid 19 are enforcing preventive measures in their cities..check on India and you will commend the MPS for what they are doing…..India is total annihilation of those that do not wear masks…

Malawians need excessive force to comply otherwise kumvela guidelines kumativuta and titha ndithu. Such force and a curfew may bring positive results.

Malawi Congress party the know for establishing detention camps, and rape camps and party cards, and police brutality can not be compared to anything like UDF and Dpp. MCP under Hastings Killer Kamuzu Banda, was the most nepotistic policy state and now its come back under code Lazarus. Which dust ball do you live in you Nyau dancer . Perhaps you are a chakwera meat ridder. Chitsiru ndi iweyo and bitch mother who birthed you

Hate it or take it but it's a fact

Brutalize and brainwash apes like you. So on and clean up your mouth since you been sucking too much . And stick to the facts. Mwina iweyo amakuthidzimula a chakwera. # CHAKWERA MUST GO
