DPP  knife-weilding gang in war-cry:  ‘Onyoza Peter  sagona, timpweteka!’

The Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) youth cadets have caused havoc in  Blantyre  beating up protesters or suspected opposition members brandishing knives.

The gang of knife-wielding youths took Kamuzu Upper Stadium and Chichiri Shopping Mall in DPP branded clothes  targeting anyone dressed in red or suspected of siding with demonstrations aiming at focing Malawi Electoral Commission(MEC chairperson) Justice Jane Ansah to step down for allegedly mismanagement of May 21 polls results.

Police left Kamuzu Upper Stadium were marchers were being mobilised, leaving DPP cadets to occupy the streets.

Activist Masawuko Thawe has had his car smashed by the cadets and he had to run for his dear life when he sought refuge at Malawi Defence Force (MDF) Blantyre campsite.

The cadets were singing their DPP war-cry in Malawi’s lingua franca, Chichewa: “Onyoza Pater  sagona, timpweteka! (“Those opposing President Peter Mutharika will not sleep, we will deal with them!”)

Other  supporters were singing Zivute zitani ife Amalawi tili pambuyo pa a Adad (Come hail or high waters we stand solidly behind President Mutharika).

They also broke into a chant: Boma! Boma! Boma! Boma! (We’re in power! We’re in power!)

Others sloganeered: Chala m’mwamba! Chala m’mwamba! Chala m’mwamba! (DPP slogan/symbol Raise your finger, raise your finger!)

Gift Trapence, of the Human Rights Defenders Coalition (HRDC) which organised the protests, accused DPP “thugs” of inciting violence.

“We are undeterred because we know that this is an attempt to distract us,” Trapence said. “We have since taken up this issue with the police.”

The planned two-day protest follows a string of demonstrations which have often been broken up by police firing tear gas.

The election was marred by allegations of fraud, including that many results sheets were altered using typewriter correction fluid called Tippex.

The two main opposition parties have challenged the vote outcome in the court.

President Mutharika claimed his challengers failed to dislodge him because they lacked the vision to take the country on the development path.

He said: “Analephera! Anagwa! Pakali pano akulira… Akulira! Ndinanena kuti adzalira pa May 23 [May 21]. Ndinanena kuti ndidzawafinya! Ndidzawagwe-deza! Ndidzawatekesa! Ndidzawaponda… Kuwaponda! Kuwaponda! [I told them that I won’t lose the election and that I will trample on them. They are now in tears].”
