DPP holds MCP, UTM responsible for protests damage:  ‘Fact remain opposition lost elections’

Ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) has launched a stinging attack on the main opposition parties in the country over the ongoing spate of protests and violence, warning the parties leadership would be held responsible for loss of lives and property damage.

Dausi: DPP victory will not be stolen, the fact remains MCp, UTM lost the elections and they are bitter

The DPP warning comes barely a day after police chief Rodney Jose told the Human Rights Defenders Coalition (HRDC) to stop convening the anti-Jane Ansah protests which of late have drawn huge numbers of people buoyed by the opposition party leadership presence.

In a statement signed by the DPP publicity secretary Nicholas Dausi, the ruling party says the DPP holds the leadership of the Malawi Congress Party (MCP), UTM and HRDC responsible for the violence and thievery which sometimes go with the protests.

“It is the hope of the DPP that the law enforcement agencies will ensure that MCP, UTM and the HRDC leaders and their agents account for the losses, pain and suffering they are causing on innocent citizens of this country in the name of peaceful demonstrations,” says Dausi in the statement.

The DPP is asking the law enforcement agents to act swiftly and bring to book all MCP, UTM and HRDC agents who are mobilizing people for the protests.

The ruling party says it is worried that its supporters are specifically targeted.

“DPP members are being beaten, harassed, hacked and their houses burnt simply for belonging to DPP,” says the press release.

Dausi says the DPP has chosen to peace, calmness and restraint, saying because the party is democratic and progressive.

“The DPP believes in one Malawi for all Malawians regardless of tribe, region or political affiliation. The DPP respects the rule of law,” says the party.

Dausi said the DPP is confident of its well deserved victory in the presidential election and is not shaken.

“The mighty DPP will not be intimated by a post-election union of losing presidential candidates and their supporters. Malawians spoke through the ballot on May 21, 2019.  The DPP will jealously guard its 21 May victory. The victory will not be stolen,” said the statement.

Duasi said MCP and the UTM lost the May 21 elections as a matter of fact.

“While we understand that losing an election can cause bitterness for bad losers, we believe that your bitterness is not a licence for unleashing terror and brutality on DPP supporters, security officers and innocent Malawians at large,” the statement adds.

There was no immediate comment from the MCP and UTM on the DPP statement.

DPP as a matter of fact,is a misled government that has put decent Malawians into shame and despair.It is unbelievable Malawi in its fifties of years,behaves shamefuly and desperately as if all Malawians did not go to school.The problems we are facing to day are minor to be solved but,the leaders are fools and lack decorum.All of this goes back to lack of leadership despite the fact that the commanding leader Peter Mutharika is a fool bastard who holds the stolen PHD and come to Malawi to cheate Malawians.In RWANDA,Kagame did not even go to a Secondary school,but he is… Read more »

which is easier to do: to tell Jane Ansa to resign or tell Malawian to stop demonstrating? Your guess is as good as mine.

If I store someone’s Mercedes Benz and the owner of the Car and his Supporters are chasing me to retrieve their Benz, I Dr. Mvuma cannot claim that these people are chasing me the genuine owner of this Car. Nonsense Mr. Dausi. You are talking as if all we Malawians are stupid and duff. Little do you know that you are fueling struggle against the injustice you have caused by Stealing elections championed by your unreasonable and selfish Dr. Ansah. Do not put your head in the sand like an Ostrich. These very Malawians that you are taking as fools… Read more »

Your stats is correct but far from the truth. About one third of our population (6million) casted votes. And the 38% and 68% in context is out of the 5 million valid votes, the majority of which are ordinary citizens living in the villages. What you should know by now is that even if we were to vote, Chilima and Chakwera will find it so hard to campaign and finally get to power. The common man who sympathized for MCP and UTM is slowly being greatly inflicted by these egocentric, unseccessful and brutal demos. The damage rendered is not justiable… Read more »

Which school of mathematics you went to. Does 38% + 68% add up to hundred. That is the very clear reason you don’t understand our system of voting. So tell me who won more votes or who had higher percentage. Who got the 62% then is it Chakwera , Chilima, Atupele, Kuwani, Chisi or Kaliya.? Please educate us mr photo.
