Civil Liberties Committee tells President Mutharika to end political violence

A rights group, the Civil Liberties Committee says it is only President Peter Mutharika who can end the ever increasing political violence perpetrated by the suspected governing  Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) rough necks.

One of the victims of the political violence

It a news conference, Civil Liberties Committee’s Francis Chikutira said Mutharika should walk the talk on his efforts to end the political violence.

“The President should rise above petty politics and deal decisively with the political violence. Malawians do not want to go back to one party era of atrocities,” said Chikutira.

Mutharika on Wednesday evening issued a statement through his spokesperson Mgeme Kalilani in which he condemned the political violence whose victims are mainly UTM Party members.

The violence came on spotlight after UTM woman in Mangochi was stripped off her clothes by DPP thugs.

However, a cross section of Malawians have instead condemned the statement saying it came too late, it contained too little and had no substance as well as lies as Mutharika fell short of directing condemning and rebuking the DPP cadets who are solely carrying out the terrorism against opposition members.

It’s quite a shame that our President has woken up from his deep slumber simply to issue an inane public statement that has no substance whatsoever and signed by his compromised Press Secretary who seems to forget that he’s a public servant and not a party minion, soiling his CV along the way. Mr. President, your message is too little too late; you need to walk the talk – go on DPP’s MBC Radio and TV and inform your bloodthirsty cadets, in no uncertain terms, that you will never tolerate violence of any form in our democratic Malawi, now or… Read more »

President offers nothing to us, tell your cadets that this is not the country you wish for, tell them to stop once and for all because that is humanity or else you risk losing your dignity because of stupidity and selfshness. Do it for you, your children, grandchidren, family or else your decisions now will eventually hunt them whilst you have been long gone. Be a good man
