DPP cadets beat marchers in Blantyre: Concerned citizens demanding Ansah to resign

Notorious governing Democrtaic Progressive Party (DPP)  Youth Cadets armed with knives, button sticks and pangas  have been protesters who were mobilising at Kamuzu Upper Stadium in Blantyre  in readiness for the march  to protest results of the May 21 Tripartite Elections and demand resignation of Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) chairperson Jane Ansah.

DPP Cadets attack marchers in full view of the police

The demonstrations were  organised by Human Rights Defenders Coalition (HRDC) and marchers were mostly ordinary Malawians affiliated to predominantly political parties in opposition which are challenging the presidential vote results in court.

As the people were gathering  in readiness for the match,  about 25 suspected DPP cadets clad in their party regalia arrived and started beating up everyone around in full view of police.

The DPP rough necks  began attacking the marchers with knives and about 30 people were injured. The police did not make any arrest.

A police spokesman said that officers dispersed “unruly elements” from venue.

Similar demonstrations were taking place in the capital Lilongwe where  UTM Party president Saulos Chilima, who finished third to President Peter Mutharika and have since filed petition in court challenging the presidential election results, joined.

In northern city of Mzuzu,  the demonstrations have been dumped by heavy rains.

The disputed victory of President Mutharika and his DPP in May elections has coincided with a rapid slowdown in the economy.

I think Peter is failing to manage the political situation, a sign that old age is not helping him.

I like when it is reported “…UTM President Saulos Chilima, who finished third to President Peter Mutharika …”. This is stated assiduously, and should always be reported in CAPS, just to remind the Judas, Chilima, of his pathetic performance in the election, and of his current political status.
Kuchakachita!

Why is DPP getting involved when the demos are for Ansah to resign. Is Ansa a DPP member? Please educate us here coz it dont make sense at all. The demos were not even about DPP or Dr Mutharika

You should ask yourself you Cadets that since demonstrations started Soldiers have not beaten any demonstrater but today it has happened in Blantyre where Soldiers beat all Cadets down to their core.

This is just a signal that even Soldiers are not happy with your Mbwiyanu.Peter.

So expect more to come just ask general Supuni, what happen to him will also happen to Peter and very shortly just watch the space.

Write names of all cadets on this line if you know them. It’s even more helpful if you indicate where they live.
