CSOs want Malawi VP Chilima to receive petition, police tell them to reroute demo

Organisers of the April 27 protest match say they now want vice president Saulos Chilima to receive their petition after President Peter Mutharika refused to do so.

Mtambo:  We anrt the petition to reach the presidency directly

One of the organisers, Timothy Mtambo said the civil society organisations have already told the police on their plan B on who should receive the grievances they want to present to the government through the petition.

“The police said they could not get the petition and present it to the President so we told them that we will ask the vice president to receive the petition on behalf of the government,” said Mtambo.

The office of the vice president is yet to respond to the issue whilst government spokesperson Nicholas Dausi simply said he could not comment because he was not part of the protesters.

Mtambo also said the police have rejected the original route for the protest march from Lilongwe Community Centre ground in Lilongwe via Mchesi to Kamuzu Palace, saying it is a recipe for violence.

The organisers are yet to come up with another route.

Who do these stupid fools called CSOs want to fool? Fotseki. Just go and tell your sponsors that Malawi don’t want another July 20 bloodshed. And LL City restrict these idiots in their movement. They don’t own Malawi. Who voted for them to be our mouth piece?

Why do you insist to go via Mchesi. Its clear that you want to use the commoner knowing his/her behaviour then you create stories out of it when things go wrong. Start from area 18 then 10. Etc. We’re watching your moves and cant trust you guys. Anzanga a mu Mchesi take care Akufuna to use you awa kenako u should be shot and yet they will be nowhere o be seen to support you. Leave them akuziwa ndi Goodal wawoyo.

If the president has refused to receive the petition does it really matter if the vice president receives it? it is going to be thrown in the wastepaper basket. so your march will be a waste of time. Zisiyeni is and speak through the ballot in 2019 because the government has already made up its mind that it is not going to listen.
