Diplomats urge Malawi to go peace on political turmoil

Diplomats are urging Malawians to explore peaceful means of dealing with the post-election political crisis, which has since cost two lives of police officers.

EU Ambassador Sandra Paesen: I say no to violence from police to citizens, from citizens to police. I say no to violence

EU ambassador to Malawi Sandra Paesen condemned the Nsundwe violence on Tuesday, asking if the police officer Usumani Imedi deserved such death.

Imedi was stoned to death by a self-styled Nsundwe vigilante group calling itself Nsundwe forces after the police officer led a team of law enforcers who had gone to the area to clear roads which were blocked.

“I am asking all Malawians today, did police superintendent Imedi deserve to be killed by stoning.

“As the ambassador of the European Union in Malawi, I say no to violence from police to citizens, from citizens to police. I say no to violence,” she says.

US ambassador to Malawi Robert Scott asked Malawians to explore peaceful means of dealing with their political differences instead of violence.

Some sections of society have blamed President Peter Mutharika for doing little to deal with the post-election violence.

But Mutharika says his hands are tied since the presidential election case is in court.

I have lost trust in these donor countries especially America and European Union.They are the ones who have created this problem in our country by accepting that our election were fair and free and this fool Peter Mutharika is finding advantage of it.Wherever he goes he always mentions these stupid America,EU etc that recommended the election results.How can they recommend elections full of fake forms and tippex-ed sheets?Let them not talk about our country we shall solve it on our own.We are sick and tired of their double standard of dealing things.

It is these so called diplomats who are causing trouble here. They are so selective in condemnation of violence. Where were they when Mayaya was hacked in Blantyre? When the police pounded the MCP headquarters with hundreds of teargas cannisters? When Sudik Mia and Kunkuyu property were petrol bombed? Be careful the way you intervene otherwise people are angry. Today its Msundwe but tomorrow it could be across the country .

Mthambo and his group totally refused to discuss peaceful discussion when he was asked by some quarters of lovely people of Malawi. You the ambassadors know pretty well about that. I think that was the right time for you to come in before the blood you have now seen flowing on the soil as DR. CHAKWERA PREACHED THAT THERE SHOULD BLOOD FLOWING

Outsiders are condemning the murder, but our own Public Affairs Committee (PAC) is sitting phwii. They only condemn violence committed against anti-government people. Is PAC serving the interest of all Malawians?
