DPP cadets pull down UTM flags, irate party supporters storm  Thyolo police

Irate UTM Party supporters in Thyolo stormed tea-growing district’s police station on Thursday after ruling  Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) cadets pull down the UTM flags at the boma and the market and replaced them with the ruling party flags.

UTM protests DPP’s ‘act of provocation’

The angry UTM supporters said “enough was enough” and would retaliate if DPP cadets continue with their provoking behavior.

“We came here to tell the police that our patience is now waning out. If this provocation does not stop, we will retaliate. All of us cannot be forced to belong to DPP, then why is the multiparty democracy here,” said one of the UTM supporters monitored during a live interview with a local radio station.

He said it was act of provocation for the DPP cadets to come and start pulling the UTM flags at the boma market and other areas and erecting their own flags instead.

“We wanted the police to assure us that we are safe. We wanted the police to know that if we are quiet, we are not all that stupid. They have done this for a long time,” said another interviewee.

The radio said a senior police officer assured the UTM supporters of their safety and said the law enforcers would talk to the DPP to exercise peaceful coexistence and political tolerance.

Thyolo is the home of president Peter Mutharika as well as senior party officials Ben Phiri, Chimwemwe Chipungu and Charles Mchacha, among others.

Things are getting out of hand. If nothing is done to stop these DPP cadets, soon there will be serious blood shed in the country. Muvi oyanganira siwuchedwa kugwa mdiso. We are peace loving Malawians . We don’t want blood shed. God forbid.

DPP knows that their days are numbered. This is the cry of a dying horse.

Unless the law enforcers put a stop to this provocative behaviour on the part of the DPP the violence will escalate as non-DPP supporters retaliate. The silence of the head of state can only be taken as consent to these recurring attacks on the opposition. How long will our beloved Malawi live up to its reputation as a peace-loving nation?

Is there need for the police to talk to the cadets or simply arrest them for their criminality?

Tell these Cadets frankly, UTM is ready to fight back.
Days are gone we used to fear human being thinking was a lion.
This is another era, there will be no retreat once the ball is in UTM hands.

Cadets will loose the fight for sure in many places if you underrate the anger with people due to your day light robbery of billions of Kwachas.

Well done DPP Cadets. Ana achepa. Teach them a lesson once again.

Inutu mutu wanu sumakoka bwino, there is time for politics and time for national interests. What will happen should UTM and MCP Youths decide to retaliate? You suffer from an overdose of hero worshiping APM as God, with the Mchacha’s as angels
