HRDC says Malawi police now ruling DPP wing

The Human Rights Defenders Coalition (HRDC) has demonized the  Malawi police, describing it as the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) wing following their partiality towards the ruling party during protests events on Wednesday.

Trapence: This is a declaration of war on fellow citizens.

HRDC vice chairperson Gift Trapence says by attacking the lawful HRDC mobilised anti-Jane Ansah protests in Blantyre, the police have attacked democracy.

“We are now vindicated that the Malawi Police Service is a DPP wing. No wonder they jointly collaborated with  [DPP] cadets to attack peaceful and lawful demonstrators,” says Trapence.

Trapence says the police officers must know that they have attacked the tenancy of democracy and they have attacked their own citizens which is a declaration of war on fellow citizens.

“No one in a democracy is above the law. History will judge you bitterly. No one and I mean no one including APM [President Peter Mutharika] will intimidate HRDC and Malawians. Very soon you will be held accountable,” says Trapence.

Trapence and HRDC chairperson Timothy Mtambo were not at the protests but the HRDC central region chairperson Billy Mayaya and four other protesters were severely injured when the DPP cadets ambushed and attacked the demonstrators.

Mapwiya you’re a stupid fool… I don’t think you are educated enough. HRDC are not biased and are not subject to be attacked by police and cadets. I can challenge you I know you’re young and based in blantyre but unemployed. You’re not able to see that your foolish professor is too CORRUPT and has destroyed Malawi in everything. You as young man think about your future. Dont think about region and tribes. Have this in your mind Capital city of every country in the world is the place that forces Change. DPP will end and fade . Those police… Read more »

It seems there are two camps: pro-DPP and those against the regime thugs. We are fast degenerating into a lawless country. This is our choice that we just have to be ready to embrace it with responsibility. Soon we shall all be losers when we finalize the demolition of our nation. How I wish there was a leader in this Malawi to try to tame the situation and find meaning in dialogue. But alas! when the declared winner in the flawed elections doesn’t believe his victory vacuum becomes the president of that nation. The whole Malawi nation has now become… Read more »

HRDC have been looking for a fight for a long time. Even travelling all the way from Lilongwe. Now they have got one.
The strange thing is that they want the same police they chase from their demos. And suddenly the medicines they say is lacking in government hospitals was there to treat their injured.
My simple advice: don’t overplay the same tactics and hope for a different outcome!
