HRDC says ready for fresh demos as Mutharika condemns violent protests

President Peter Mutharika has renewed his condemnation for violent protests just days before the new wave of anti-Jane Ansah demonstrations.

Preesident Mutharika said some people who attended the state funeral for Mugabe asked him why Malawians had gone to the extent of damaging their own public infrastructures

Speaking Saturday evening on arrival from Zimbabwe where he attended the state funeral of former president Robert Mugabe, Mutharika said the violent protests are detrimental to the social-economic development of the country.

“Just imagine, they target public infrastructure. They demolish schools, police stations, damage roads,” said Mutharika.

He said some people who attended the state funeral for Mugabe asked him why Malawians had gone to the extent of damaging their own public infrastructures.

“Mugabe lived for pan-African unity. What is happening in Malawi now is not the unity he wanted us to enjoy,” said Mutharika.

Human Rights Defenders Coalition (HRDC) has announced that the new wave of protests would take place from Wednesday tp Frday this week  (September 18 to 20 , 2019) to force the Malawi Electoral Commission chairperson Jane Ansah step down.

 

“What we know is that the 14 days expired and after that we are free to organise demonstrations by making use of the points that we agreed with the Attorney General’s office,” said Mtambo.

He said HRDC has submitted letters to all city councils of demonstrations and that some districy councils will receive the letters this wek,

But the Attorney General Kalekeni Kaphale has strongly condemned the call for the protests, saying HRDC and the government had not yet exhausted exploring ways of holding peaceful protests.

The Malawi Supreme Court of Appeal made the order following an application by the Attorney General’s office which cited violence and lotting during some of the HRDC’s protests.

HRDC and opposition parties want Asah, who is  also  Judge of the Malawi Supreme Court of Appeal, to step down, accusing her of presiding over an allegedly flawed electoral process.

She denies any wrong doing and have vehemently refused to resign, saying she is leading a “normal life” as the Constitutional Court is hearing election petition case.

Hie Mbuyache I think if you are a born again person you could not have called Jane Ansah HULE!!! but surely your language explains more of what you are – in short you should know that you are the true SON of the DEVIL the FATHER of all EVIL. Now listen as long as my GOD JEHOVAH JIREH lives Malawi shall remain at PEACE with our choosen Leader APM whom GOD has appointed with his spiritual finger and no one will ever remove him. Chakwera & Chilima are destined to live in a very shamefull life – GOD himself has… Read more »

Please get this Mr. Active president. The HRDC Protestors don’t damage property. Rather, it’s the so-called cadets you send to masquerade as part of the protesters who deliberately public infrastructures just to discredit HRDC and opposition. Why do you pretend you don’t know.

Just accept Mr Mutharika, the majority of pipos don’t want you and believe that this election was rigged by your friends with Jane Ansah at the helm!
If you would be a performer, you would through this lady out and call for new elections, before it is to late for all of us including you!
Robert Mugabes and Zimbabwes downfall should be a warning example for you!

Ok now it is true – it is true that HRDC is a GHOST full of EVIL and it is looking for blood of innocent people and the big problem is that it has managed to impart the same EVIL spirit to some opposition parties. But the good thing is that God has sent down his military angels to fight for & protect the innocent Malawians including Janne Ansah whom they want to bring down – I feel the power of God is taking full control of each and every situation here in Malawi because many the true sons of… Read more »

Cadet Jamax, you cannot be talking evil against the real Man of God by hiding in the spiritual context of your evil comment. I know you are happy seeing Malawi crippled under the thuggery leadership of Mutharika. You think the theft Jane Ansah and Mutharika have done by robbing Malawians of their choice of a true God fearing leader will just be accepted. My dear you are joking. The true evil people are about to be exposed. Just wait and see how the court case will be concluded. If the courts rules in favor of the corrupt MEC and DPP,… Read more »

If God was on the side of your Leader Chakwera he couldn’t have lost the elections and this is the fact – do you believe? – the word from the bible says,’ No WEAPON fashioned by the Devil shall prosper mainly on the children of GOD’ and if the opposit happens then God himself has a proper reason for that. do you believe? Now listen my dear brother if you are going to vent anger on me then you are wrong – do you understand? I just express my views as others do and this is what the spirit is… Read more »

Stupid Mtambo and his group, you are going to pay for this one day. Do you think you can benefit anything by striking? The discussions that you started were a better option than Demonstrations.
