Fresh Malawi vote protests turn ugly: DPP cadets rough marchers in BT, lawlessness at Nathenje

The fresh protests organised by civil society organisations (CSOs) under the banner of Human Rights Defenders  Coalition (HRDC) on Friday turned ugly as  violence spoiled the peaceful assemblies.

Demonstrations in Blantyre marked by violence

In Blantyre where the City Council stopped the demonstrations, ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) youth cadets armed with knives roughed up people who gathered at Chichiri Upper Stadium to march.

In full view of police officers who were watching helplessly, the DPP cadets roughed up  some girls and even left them have some of their private parts exposed.

The  Chichiri Shopping Mall was  closed with more police officers standing in strategic places.

In the capital city Lilongwe,  business was proceeding as normal in most parts as  shops remained open as scores of protesters were  taking part in anti -Jane Ansah demonstrations .

HRDC leaders including Gift Trapence and MacDonald Sembereka who were recently arrested on fraud allegations were in attendance.

But  in the outskirts of the city, a mob of  youths suspected to belong to opposition Malawi Congress Party (MCP) were blocking roads with stones.

The youth gangsters  were demanding money as a requirement for motorists to pass through.

Police in areas along the M1 Road from Lilongwe to Blantyre such as Nathenje have been involved in running battles with locals.

Protesters in Chitipa laid siege to a Chipiku store at the boma, but the police dispersed them by spraying teargas.

The protesters had however presented their petition to the district commissioner.

Malawi Defence Force soldiers also thwarted the marchers intentions to raid Chitipa Admarc depot, when they  positioned themselves strategically next to the depot.

Some protesters in Mzuzu actually dressed a dog with ruling DPP cloth.

‘In full view of police officers who were watching on HELPLESSLY’ – They always seem to be ‘helpless’ whenever DPP cadets are involved. What kind of police officers do we have? Are they spineless of simply DPP supporters themselves? They need to earn their salaries and put a stop to the violence of these DPP cadets.

Atumbuka mwaenjezatu apa. Is the protest about DPP? Why dress a dog in a DPP regalia? This exactly the reason why no ntumbuka will ever be a president in Malawi. This tribe of bigotry idiots is so full of thengere logic.

You are very right. Atumbuka amachita zopusa ngati macondom. Remember how atumbuka supported in Mass the defunct mgwirizano coalition in 1999. The same condom behavior was repeated with Abhiti Kazhigeti in 2014. It had been repeated with Arafat in 2019. And following this, the ntumbuka of Burundi origin is convincing us that the way forward is devil-like, kupha, kwibha, ndikuononga.

So Arafat, go back home to Palestine you don’t belong to Malawi. Those Tumbukas are fighting for their country something I expected you’d understand. As for Tumbukas not ruling Malawi, the same goes for your Palestine remaining stateless ever. Yasser Arafat Hamdani go back home !!

Iweeee….atumbuka amamenyela ufulu wandani iwe wa kikikikiki….so, which ntumbuka has ever been president of Malawi? The person you call “mukuti president wanuyo” is president of Malawi Nsanje to Chitipa and Karo ga. He governs even atumbuka. See how tumbukas wanted to steal from shops of innocent investors in Rumphi and Chitipa yesterday. Real thengere thinking.

You obviously are barefooted in your head. Yes peter is president. Yes we have more lomwe ministers is the cabinet. Now who make up the middle class in Malawi. It is the northerners. So on the ground tumbukas themselves are the ones ruling. They run your every day life They call the shots in the employment sector. Now flip the coin and check the other side. Who are cane cutters in our sugar industry- lhomwes and senas. Whore are cane planters and weeders- lhomwes and senas. Who are the farm workers in the tobacco industry in Kasungu and Rumphi- lhomwes… Read more »

DPP has just set the precedence by blocking legally marchers to take its course.

Hope Sunday in Lilongwe the MCP and HRDC cadets will do likewise by blocking the DPP victory parade .

So DPP should prepare handsomely for Sunday parade bcoz it looks like suicidal which DPP is taking.

Ohoo we are a better people. We are not going to stop them. We will be busy overworking their brothers doing our nursery preparation and galauza in the field. Don’t forget they’re our slaves in the tobacco industry.
