DPP, MCP clash in Lower Shire: Cadets uproot opposition flags, use guns to scare

There was tension in the Lower Shire on Monday when supporters of the ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) and opposition Malawi Congress Party (MCP) clashed and DPP cadets used guns to shoot in the air to scare the opposition members and uprooted MCP flags.

DPP supporters came in a vehicle and uprooted MCP flags

The DPP supporters clad in their party colours and T-shirts were uprooting flags of MCP in Nsanje and Chikwawa ahead of President Peter Mutharika’s visit in the areas to see flood victims.

Nsanje Lalanje MCP legislator Lawrence Sitolo said DPP supporters uprooted MCP flags. He said the development angered MCP supporters who protested.

“DPP supporters came in a vehicle and uprooted all MCP flags along the way. MCP supporters responded to protect party material but they used violence,” Sitolo said.

The DPP Cadets pulled guns to shoot in the air to scare MCP supporters who were dispersed and they went on uprooting the flags.

DPP spokesman Nicholous dismissed the reports, saying no such a thing took place.

But eye witnesses said there were running battles after their flags were uprooted. They said the situation calmed down later after Abida Mia, wife to MCP deputy president Sidik Mia, called for restraint from the opposition members.

Mia said some people in blue colours were seen travelling around in a pickup and were up to something evil including uprooting MCP flags.

This is early political violence as the nation is gearing up to the 2014 tripartite elections.

If it is True that Guns were used by DPP Cadets then Malawi tili Pamavuto. The Question is who supplies the guns.? Who is killing the Albino? Why have the police not arrested anyone. The very Police arrested Kalindo on petty issues. My fellow Malawians let us not make the same mistake of voting for DPP other wise Muzalila Koko Koto kalanga ine for the next five years.

DPP thugs will go down in history as the most ruthless terrorist that ever ruled Malawi. They are synonymous to the barbaric vandals that invaded and terrorized western and eastern Europe at some point in time. But it’s all buried ugly history, gone forever.

The guns must have been supplied by homeland security ministry to the thugs.

Anyone voting DPP in May should have their heads examined. We’ve had enough stealing, plundering, corruption, nepotism, albino murders and anything that is bad governance.

You will have a shock of your life when MCP triumphs.

The problem is mind set of the writer. He would want paint bad picture of DPP simply to please his pay master. That is why he withdrew an article from this same platform which talked about unbecoming conduct of Mrs. Mia during BT runingmate debate, silencing truth using cash. Secondly, MCP please reduce your desperation for power, do you think you can manage to frustrate or block a program of a sitting president? You will lose regrettably.

This is a true story. I stay at Bangula myself and these DPP thugs also uprooted MCP flags at Bangula. To me I feel DPP days in power are really dwindling and on the other hand DPP must be schooled on the difference between multiparty and one party era

DPP will get serious lessons during these elections. People’s patience is running out and they will wish they never lived in Malawi. Continue doing this and thinking that people are not powerful and stupid. They will not care about guns when their human rights are violated beyond control. They will fight everywhere, hunt for you in your houses, toilets and everywhere. Tick tock tick tock..time is coming!
