DPP accuses UTM, MCP of riding on HRDC for post-election strife

The governing Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) has said the opposition leaders’ campaign to nullify the May presidential election depends on getting more angry people on the streets violently and  riding on the banner of Human Rights Defenders Coalition (HRDC) to persuade government to hold  fresh elections.

Mchacha: HRDC might have good intentions to hold peaceful demonstrations, but it is MCP and UTM Party supporters that are inciting violence.

The election impasse  is unlikely to be settled until the Constitutional Court delivers a ruling on the 21 May polls, which the opposition  claims were rigged.

Speaking at Zingangwa Community Ground in Blantyre on Sunday during a political rally, DPP regional governor for the South, Charles Mchacha, said HRDC has been planning peaceful demonstration to force Malawi Electoral Commisison (MEC) to resign but some Malawi Congress Party (MCP) and UTM Party members join the protests to incite violence and looting.

Mchacha, who is also Deputy Ministers of Transport anf Public Works,  said the opposition parties agenda was to create a lawless society and promote their desire to usurp power  violently.

He asked HRDC leadership to stop opposition leaders  Lazarus Chakwera of MCP  and Saulos Chilima of UTM with their members from joining the demonostrations.

“We know that HRDC as human rights campaigners may have good intentions to hold peaceful demonstrations but it is MCP and UTM supporters that are spoiling their protests. They join the march and incite violence,” said Mchacha.

He asked HRDC chairperson Timothy Mtambo  and his deputy Gift Trapence to “stop Chakwera and Chilima and their supporters from joing the HRDC demonstrations.”

Mchacha said peaceful demonstrations are guaranteed in the Constitution of the Republic but violent and looting protests are unacceptable.
