DPP cancels Blue Day march, Mchacha defers it to Sept 20: Analyst says its ‘savage tactics’

The Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) has cancelled the Blue Day march which was scheduled to start Friday morning  in Blantyre and deferred their act to September 20, DPP Southern Region governor, Charles Mchacha has confirmed.

Mchacha: Feigned ignorance of the CSOs’ march being cancelled and moved to September 21

Blantyre City Council (BCC) gave the ruling DPP permission to hold its Blue Day in the City on Friday September 7, the same day the Human Rights Defenders Coalition (HRDC) planned to hold anti-government protests.

But on Friday there was no DPP member at Kamuzu Upper Stadium, the proposed starting point for the march with only  police officers roaming around.

According to Mchacha, the DPP cancelled the march because “they want to give a chance to CSOs to march and also to allow the voter registration exercise to go on uninterrupted.”

He said they have cancelled the Blue Day to September 20 a day before the CSOs hold their nationwide anti-government protests.

Mchacha feigned ignorance of the CSOs’ march being cancelled and moved to September 21.

Meanwhile, governance expert and commentators Makhumbo Munthali said by cancelling the  Blue Day march and instead slotting on 20 September a day before CSOs demos clearly vindicates that the DPP parade was all about distracting CSOs demos and bring violence.

“Just like he did on the eve of 27 April demos where Mchacha led the DPP parade on 26 April in Blantyre threatening people not to attend the 27 April demos, it is clear that the slotting in of 20th Septmber  DPP parade is aimed at achieving the same objective- of threatening citizens not to attend the demos,” Munthali told Nyasa Times.

He continued: “It is now clear that Mchacha has the full blessings of not only the DPP National Executive Committee but also the President whenever he does these savage tactics to instill fear in Malawians and critics of the regime.

“Otherwise, if they were not party to this they would have outrightly condemned this.”

He added: “Its high time Malawians demanded accountability on President Mutharika and DPP NEC on Mchacha’s primitive behaviour otherwise by being silent he and the NEC are accomplice to this.”

Chairperson of the HRDC Timothy Mtambo said they  shifted their protests from September 7 to September 21 in the interest of peace, unity and cooperation.

Mtambo said they avoided clashes with ruling DPP cadets especially in Blantyre.

If there are people contributing to DPP’s sinking popularity, Mchacha leads the team. He thinks he owns Malawi, particularly the south where respected Nankhumwa is DPP’s VP. I implore the civilised VP to discipline the foul mouthed errant standard eight so-called governor by clipping his wings for the good of DPP..

Anthu ngati a Mchacha amalitenga dzikoli ngati ndi la ambuyawo. This is purely taking Malawian people for granted. This fool must learn a bitter lesson, wafika pobowa kwambiri.

Regional governors should be people who can strategise and strengthen the party but I wonder why this Mchacha was picked for this job. He has premature tactics and which would eventually decampaign the very party he serves. Ichi ndi chipako, masewera a ana a std 2.

Mchacha pull up your socks as time is running out. Mukufuna chipani chiluze.

Once again it goes to show that the head (Peter) is not in control of his party but the hooligans who don’t have any persuasion skills other than violence. Isn’t it telling that the head (Peter) has denounced violence and yet his aides and so called cronies have revolted against him and continue to harass fellow Malawians. I urge the CSOs and opposition parties to continue kuwadyetsa njomba anyamata a DPP mpaka aonekele ng’amba. Most of these so called DPP leaders have IQ of Standard 3 pupil and therefore shouldn’t be holding any position at all let alone political positions.

Mchacha needs to be castrated. I hope he hasn’t sired kids already who will be wired exactly as his low IQ mindset. This is the nonsense that Malawi should never tolerate. This fool aluzitsa chipani cha a Bingu
