HRDC  deny plot to overthrow Malawi government

Civil society organisations (CSOs) under the banner of Human Rights Defenders Coalition (HRDC) have denied that the protests they are organising are meant to overthrow the government.

HRDC Chairperson, Timothy Mtambo (L), Vice Chairperson, Gift Trapence (C) and member Luke Tembo: The protest are done to force Ansah to resign

President Peter Mutharika on Saturday condemned over the disputed result of a May vote saying organisers wanted to turn the country into a “lawless society”.

HRDC  vice chairman Gift Trapence said the president’s statement is “misplaced because these protests are not targeted to overthrow the government”.

Said Traoence: “We are not attacking the government… and no one wants to overthrow the government.

“These peaceful demonstrations are being done to force Jane Ansah to resign.”

Malawi has seen nearly two months of protests by demonstrators who dismiss the election as fraudulent and demand the resignation of Ansah.

Opposition leaders claim correction fluid was used on some results sheets and have lodged cases in court.

WHY ON EARTH IS JANE ANSAH NOT RESIGNING? OR THE APPOINTING AUTHORITY NOT REMOVING HER FROM HER POSITION WHICH HAS BECOME UNTENANBLE? IT IS BECAUSE OF THE EXISTENCE OF CONFLICT OF INTEREST?

So stupid of you people, do you even know what you’re saying? Do you understand how much damage has been done all because of your greed you so called CSOs? In fact, who gives you the mandate to say you represent all Malawians? Are you Traphwisi and your dirty looking gaymate Mtambo voted into that position for you to claim you speak for Malawians? You morons speak for yourselves, especially for Livingstonia synod. What type of organisation is made up of only people from one region? It was Mwalubunju, then Mwakasungula, then you two pigs Mtambo and Traphwisi all atumbuka.… Read more »

Are your demos peaceful? Gift Trapence, if you’re not attacking government, whose property are you burning? Treasury Cashier’s office, the DC’s, Lands, Wild Life and others, are you really not attacking government? You think in your narrow mind you are addressing idiots like yourself? Bullshit!

Actually, when you forcibly tell Jane Ansah to resign you are actually telling her not to resign. You are strengthening her resolve to stay put. Your enemy is not the best candidate to tell you, your next action. This is common sense .

People of let’s us understand the connotation behind APM’s accusations. APM wanted to tell people that he is Jane Ansah and Jane Ansah is APM himself. This is implies that the 2019 elections Malawi had no independent Chairperson of MEC since the chair lady was in APM and APM was in chair lady. So pushing for MEC chairperson out of office is pushing APM out of presidency since these two are occupying their office by the will of each other not of the people of Malawi. So Timothy and Gift tell this guy called APM the truth that yes, we… Read more »
