Dzuka Malawi: Any reason Mtambo, Trapence can’t wait for courts?

For many small scale business persons, the absence of demonstrations is a breather. To hear Timothy Mtambo and Gift Trapence, Solomon Phiri and Luke Tembo announce another set, many things come to mind. The first question is why would serious Civil Society call for demonstrations when the case and evidence of the alleged irregularities is in court.

After the pathetic performance by their star boy Saulosi Chilima, CSO’s need to tread carefully, it is now looking like they want someone other than the DPP to have won elections. Otherwise Jane Ansah days can be measured after the court case, after the ruling not from hearsay and emotions.

Evidence so far tested in court shows less than half a percent irregularaties affected the polls according to one contestant UTM. The amount of burning, business loss and shut down caused by CSOs is in billions. Perhaps I would not support a collateral, that should the court find nothing wrong with elections, these people calling for demonstrations will pay Malawians for creating fake problems.

This is not political, but CSOs can and should respect the rule of law. One of it is independent arbitration of the elections case currently under way in Lilongwe. There is no other better option. After all Justice Ansah clearly stated that after the case, she will go if the court finds her wrong.

Unless Trapence and Mtambo have evidence to the contrary, Malawians cant continue to dance to their tune, when  the elections case has specific dates and process when we expect judgement. They are supposed to respect court, respect Malawians and be seen not to have partisan interests.

Of course they have enjoyed the destruction, their half measured denunciation of violence and ping pong play with Police on who is to blame. The forget rights have responsibilities and duties.

The elections case will go, it will end no matter how long it might be. Whether short or long, some of us would want to have a commission of inquiry as to who really funded, created violence and caused chaos in Malawi. This inquiry will not be whether Peter Mutharika remains a president or not, it will anyone who is the President after the elections case.

Malawians need to know if they were being used to pursue a certain agenda, and someone will have to pay for the cost. I am sure Mtambo and Trapence will welcome such an inquiry, wide reaching and willingly pay back Malawians should evidence emerge that they threw away any reasoning to wait for the court to pronounce the matter.

If they have evidence of Ansah failing to manage elections, let them give to court which will affirm or reject the evidence independently. Even their donors must be wondering what is in a hurry to get rid of Ansah when the courts can do it without further damage to public property.

One day, the truth will come out Messers Mtambo and Trapence, thank you for teaching Malawians to demand accountability. Malawi will prevail. Dzuka Malawi

There shall come a time when Mtambo will come face to face with the angry people whose property and houses have been damaged in these demos. He will be alone. No crowd of demonstrators to protect him. And he will plead with them and say sorry but his apologies will fall on deaf ears. Then he will feel the pain others have been feeling. Please call this a prophesy or prediction. There are angry people out there and these people are angry with Mtambo.

A mtambowa akuopa milandu ya zomwe aononga. This time we will deal with you. We are also citizens and we have rights too. If you wanted us to be ruled by dull people, ife takana.
Chilima is dull. If you assess his performance in court, do you see any difference with his below par performance with Zeinab Bhadawi of BBC? This guy is a full time dull person. His compatriot Chakwera is even worse. VIVA APM.

What Human rights is HRDC defending? I personally think they have overstepped their boundaries. Why should they hold the Nation at Ransom? Their actions are infringing people’s rights to property, right to shelter, right to economic activity, freedom of movement, and right to peaceful environment. The fact that a number of people are patronising their demos does not mean they are justified to arbitrarily infringe on the rights of other citizens. Such barbaric tactics will not lead this nation anywhere and there is nothing heroic about it. They may have the right to demand resignation of Jane Ansah but at… Read more »

I used to love and respect this fool called Rudo when he was a non-partisan writer but now every sensible person can see he’s a cadet in sheepskin. And that’s what happens when one has been bought into the comfort zone at the expense of the poor. The demos have got nothing to do with the court cases at hand if you really are a learned person as you claim, tell you what; the total damage caused by demos are only 0.59% of daily damages caused by your politicians through thieving. Poor people have got nothing to loose but you… Read more »

That is the beauty of democracy – having different views. Why should all writings be to your satisfaction? Take away the MCP syndrome where only your opinion should be heard.

The longer you take to remove Ansah, the more problems you are brewing. It was Jane Ansah, now quota system and stinking nepotism is coming in. Peter Mutharikha will be wiped out very shortly.

This bastard has been given more space to destroy Malawi. What is the problem with people from the North, Last time it was Undule who led people to be killed and now it is this half Burundi and half Malawi. I have had chance to chat with those who were arrested for the violence. They claim they are being sponsored by Chilima and Chakwera and they said after causing damage they shoulld blame DPP hence at times they burn their own property like what happened to Mia and MCP office. No wonder all the offices burnt had only old furniture… Read more »

akukunamizanitu. Nkhani sithera pa Jane Ansah. Muona kuti even if Jane Ansah left, the defenders have a string of issues they want to tackle through demonstrations. Issues which happened throughout the 5 years tenure of APM, and only being tackled now? Where was their justice when APM got K145m? Where was their justice when albinos were being killed? Wake up!!
