DPP defends militant party youth cadets: Dausi says ‘wait for investigations report’

Ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) has swung to the defence of party youth cadets whom the party is now using to unleash terror and political violence against the opposition.

Dausi: I know MCP inside out, not a party to give power

DPP spokesperson, who is also minister of Homeland Security,  Nicholas Dausi said there should be what he called a comprehensive investigation on the issue before pointing fingers at the notorious  cadets who leave their victims for dead.

An aspiring UTM Party candidate was severely beaten by the cadets over the weekend in Mangochi whilst in Blantyre, a Malawi Congress Party (MCP) supporter Edward Govati was severely wounded.

“It is extremely unfair to start pointing fingers at one party. Other parties can put on DPP colours to look as if it is the party perpetrating the political violence. This can just be smear. We need to wait for the investigation,” said Dausi, a former Malawi Young Pioneers (MYP) operative.

The attack on the two opposition members follows another attack on Mulanje west member of parliament Bon Kalindo, twice within two weeks.

Police have never acted on political violence perpetrated by the DPP cadets but police spokesperson James Kadadzera said the police have opened against those who severely beat up and wounded Kalindo and the UTM aspiring parliamentary candidate.

“We are investigating the matter,” said Kadadzera who conceded the law enforcers have not yet made arrests.

United Democratic Front president Atupele Muluzi has become the latest to condemn the rising political violence in the country after the quasi-religious body, the Public Affairs Committee.

Commenting on the issue, social and political commentator Emily Mkamanga said it is “myopic to think that a political party can bepopular and strong by engaging youth militias to beat up other parties to submission.”

Meanwhile, director of Church and Society of the CCAP Synod of Livingstonia, Moses Mkandawire, has condemned the conduct of DPP cadets, warning it spells doom for the 2019 polls if not checked.

Shame on these thugs and shame on everyone who is shielding them. Malawi is for all Malawians not a few greedy individuals. This will not get you anywhere and God will punish you for that.

Much as I don’t condone the violence the DPP youths are allegedly inflicting on members of the opposition its important also that members of the opposition restrain from deliberately provoking DPP members. I have seen myself members of the opposition hurling all sorts of insults and f*** words whenever they see a vehicle full of DPP members. So world over especially in Africa ruling party youths are somehow traditionally above the law since they belong to the executive arm of govt which controls the police too. So do you expect the police to arrest them but lose their jobs? My… Read more »

Malawians Dausi is not agood person or a tool that can be used for justice.. He is aliar and will never stand for the truth. This man I dont feel in my heart that is taking that position, He doesn’t deserve it. May be he knows how to kill people thats why.. the truth is DPP youth sikuchita bwino NO. If young people are affiliated or have desires to join politics akuona from MCP youth clean smart no violence akumaganiza kuti ndale ndizokoma , why MCP is inspiring them. Let’s be honest. But Dausi is running away from the truth,… Read more »
