Dausi changes tune, praises protesters for peaceful demo

Information Minister Nicholas Dausi has heaped praise on the April 27 demostrators for their peaceful marches.

Protesters march to present their petition to Civic Offices in Blantyre during anti-corruption protests in Malawi, April 27, 2018

“They demonstrated a high level of patriotism” said Dausi.

His comment is in sharp contrast to his actions days before the Friday protests when he tried to block the protests.

He was one of the top ruling Democratic Progressive Party officials who called for the anti-protests on Thursday.

However, in a change of heart, Dausi said Malawians have a right to hold peaceful protests.

“To demonstrate is a constitutional right, those who protested exercised their constitutional right,” said Dausi.

He also praised the police for professionally handling the protests.

“No single shot was fired, no teargas,” he said.

Police killed 20 protesters during similar demos in 2011.

If there’s anyone in Malawi still listening or taking Dausi seriously, then we need to question their intelligence or their capacity. This man doesn’t read at all. He hasn’t read the Malawi and DPP constitution. He can’t even make sense of his own words. He can’t even read the political game. He’s just a waste of our and DPP’s time

That’s what I like about Dausi. Unlike a Ntaba he is very fluid and flexible. Here he has demonstrated he is ready to jump ship and join us.

No single shot because there was no shoot order from above.now I understand that the police receive orders to shoot our brothers and sisters during demonstrations

Lunatic Dausi. Za manyazi ku DPP and the government operatives. By the way, most police officers are tired of being used by the ruling party just to harrass the opposition and later getting dumped like shit after the exercise.

Dzuka Malawi dzuka!
