DPP supporters cry foul over march allowances
Scores of Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) on Wednesday late evening protested against party officials in Lilongwe demanding their allowances for participating in the party organised Constitutional Court election case ruling protest march earlier in that day.
The protesters, clad in the ruling DPP attire, caused pandemonium at the gates of Kamuzu Palace as they complained that they had not been given their allowances.
At least 15 extra armed police officers arrived at the gate, the official residence of the President Peter Mutharika, who is also the DPP leader.
DPP protesters, who included women, said they were ferried in lorries from other districts to Lilongwe .
The protesters, under the control of the armed police, stayed late at the gates waiting for the allowances.
DPP secretary general Grezelder Jeffrey and party spokesperson Nicholas Dausi refused to comment on the matter.
Mutharika had a few hours earlier met the protesters at the same gate and addressed them.
The DPP is protesting against the Constitutional Court February 3 election case ruling which annulled the May 21, 2019 presidential election results after accusing the Malawi Electoral Commission of mishandling the polls.
The court said that the election was marred with irregularities and anomalies which were so widespread, systematic and grave that the election result was seriously compromised.
Speaking earlier during the protest march, Jeffrey maintained the DPP earlier stand that the constitutional court judges erred in its February 03 judgment in the presidential election case.
Jeffrey told journalists that the party will continue demonstrating its concerns through what she termed constitutional means of showing all Malawians that the court ruling was against the reality.
The DPP supporters echoed the sentiments through word of mouth and songs that they chanted all the way from Lilongwe community centre to the civic offices where they presented a petition.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :

It is reported that APM addressed those protesters in few hours later can u provide evidence through audio so that we here what he told them? Do not be taken by fools in making comments. Take note no matter what one may do but u dont fight against God’s chosen. If APM is to be leader till 2024/25 he will no matter what comes along the way
Those who were demanding allowances were not DPP marchers these are the ones who wanted to cause chaos during the march. Remember ppo have been alleging that DPP can not hold protests in the central region but today have made it its ppo have nothing to say now what else can they say but to create such cheap propaganda so that some might believe the marchers were hired. A Malawi moyo uwu can not take u anywhere. Lets give credit where it is due DPP has demonstrated that peaceful demos starts with leadership and determination. Tawona in all three demos… Read more »

DPP creates poverty, desperation, deprivation which the Abankha party uses as a tool for their political means.
Umphawi anakonza iiiish, dzuwa lili phweeee kuyenda munsewu coz of 3 pin?? pezani zochita makosana chonde uwuwu ndi uchitsiru!
Inu mwaiwala ma lorry anu mumatuta zigawenga za kwa Msundwe zija eti? Chotsani chitsotso chanu kaye
What’s your point? Msundwe is also in Lilongwe, isn’t it? Kabunyuleni baba ngati mulibe nkhani.
Buying people to protest, buying people to cry for Jane Ansah. Then what else, buying people to vote. All on tax payers money.
The sole reason clings to power, is to be in power, pa u president so that they continue stealing and looting. The will pay winawake kuti “adziwatseta” for as long as s/he will vote for DPP
Tiyeni nawoni akulipileni Basi. Inu ntchito yanu imene anakutumani munagwira. But DPP is really desperate. Up to gathering false support just to fake malawians that dpp has support in the central region. Peter is busy packing his bags in state house as he is in injury time. Adadi uwuzeni zowona ana kuti munabela koma agalu analiko ambili nde mnagwidwa. Muwawuzeso kuti panopa zikuwoneka kuti kubelaso sizitheka choncho nde kupakilako.
