DPP says Chakwera on course turning Malawi into police state,  victimising the South  

Opposition Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) officials have today taken political jabs against President Lazarus Chakwera and punched holes in the Tonse Alliance led government.

Mphepo (r) with Dr Jean Kalirani: Chakwera administration is  sledding the nation to oppression especially targeted at people from the south as it was in MCP one party dictatorship.

The DPP administrative secretary Francis Mphepo said at a news conference in Blantyre that Chakwera wants to turn Malawi into a police state.

Mphepo said this was why the police are arresting DPP officials and questioned why some DPP members who are arrested are not taken to court yet.

He says government is also targeting people from the South.

” As DPP we are worried that Malawi has been turned into a police state. This is what Malawians voted against in 1993. MCP is taking Malawians back into the days of detention without trial,” he said.

He said the Chakwera administration is using selective justice.

“Malawi should remain democratic. DPP will not accept to go back to one party state which MCP championed,” said Mphepo.

DPP National organizing Secretary Chimwemwe  Chipungu says the party did not labour to destroy MCP and UTM when the party was in power.

He ssid it is worrying that parties under the Tonse Alliance are busy working to destroy the DPP.

Chipungu claims the Chakwera administration wants to take Malawi tback to one party system.

He also accused the current government of removing on the priority list the construction of 250 secondary schools and hospitals which were in the DPP regime.

On Affordable Input Program, he said the program is a non-starter as it failed in Zambia, as such the current regime must swallow its pride by getting rid of the biometric system in the AIP.

He also says that the program only appears to waste public funds.

Emmanuel Matere councillor from Machinjiri claims that the Chakwera adminsitration t is nepotistic and there is ‘Chewalisation’ of opportunities .

He said the Ombusdman and other state prosecuting agents are targeting people from Southern and eastern regions.

Matere says that the decision to transfer parastatals to Lilongwe will kill business in Blantyre.

poverty stricken nation

Alamu Pumani Mwakalamba

Bodza. Vuwa, Mzomera and Uladi are not from the South. Kamuzu did not arrest for no reason at all. Brown Mpinganjira was arrested during the Kamuzu era. Look at his behaviour since 1994. Kulanda akazi a weni and kuba. No wonder he was arrested.

If it is sympathy you were seeking from Malawians, then you’ve got it; nothing but negative responses to your complaints.
Mbava must pay the price. Fortunately the arrests are speeding up DPP’s journey into oblivion.

the atrocities they committed to the Malawi Nation were beyond human understanding.
The DPP never loved malawi as a nation

If arresting all DPP thieves means turning Malawi into a police state then let it be! I voted for Tonse alliance solely for Chakwera and SKC to arrest all DPP thieves…we knew they were stealing but ACB and the police were powerless! ACB please ..go after these thieves..no mercy! Nkhalamba zokuba zopanda manyazi! Yes..we voted for democracy in 1993 but not the kind of plundering and thuggery that DPP became! I pray to God that DPP should never rule this country again!
