HRDC asks UN to remove Mutharika as HeForShe ambassador

Human Rights Defenders Coalition (HRDC) has asked United Nations (UN) to remove President Peter Mutharika as an ambassador for HeForShe Global campaign for insulting remarks he made against former president Joyce Banda.

Trapence: UN Women should strip the role of Mutharika

The firebrand organization has also demanded that President Mutharika should apologise to Malawians, especially women and girls.

President Mutharika  in an apparent response to her claims that he is a drunkard, attacked Banda at a rally in Goliath on Monday, saying she is a ‘hule’ [whore].

Speaking at a media briefing held in Lilongwe on Tuesday, HRDC chairperson Gift Trapence was blunt; saying President Mutharika’s remarks on Monday represents a saddest day in the history of Malawi fight for women and girls right.

“We are condemning the speech in the strongest terms. It is a speech that has eroded every stride Malawi has made in promoting women and girls rights in the country,” he said.

Trapence has since called on all political parties to adhere to issue-based campaign than insulting others on the podium.

Mutharika was appointed HeForShe Global Campaign Ambassador in 2015.

He For She is a solidarity campaign for gender equality initiated by UNWomen with a goal to engage men and boys as agents of change for the achievement of gender equality and women’s rights by encouraging them to take action against inequalities faced by women and girls.

Tizinena chatsitsa zdaye kuti njobvu ithyoke mnyanga, advise Joyce Banda to respect others so that she must be respected. If women abuse men and we just support them for that, wrath of God will be upon us. Countries need not to give kid gloves, where a woman deserves respect she must have it but where it is not, let them be treated the same.

HRDC is the militant wing of MCP. They are biased and think that they represent Malawi. NO! HRDC is a group of thugs.

Just leave the old man alone for now. He’s only got a few weeks left before he’s kicked out of the state house which should automatically annul his position as heforshe ambassador I believe.

The UN resident Rep. has not responded on this matter and if it was really that of value, she could not have hesitated to condemn it as she did with rape issue of Msundwe.

You HRDC guys smiled when your demonstrators called Jane Ansah Hule. You are partly to blame for this moral decadence. You should be the first to apologise; JB should be the second to apologise for calling APM a drunkard. APM should be the last to apologise.
By the way, you should have addressed the press the day JB attacked APM, not wait until APM responds
