HRDC to press on anti-Jane Ansah protests despite Malawi police teargas

Human Rights Defenders Coalition (HRDC) says it will press on with the anti-Jane Ansah protests till Friday, despite calculated police intimidation and harassment.

HRDC chairperson Mtambo says he is ready to die for justice.

HRDC chairperson Timothy Mtambo said this on Tuesday at the end of the first day of the demonstrations at Capital Hill, the seat of government in Lilongwe.

“We will not stop these demonstrations, we will not be intimidated to surrender, we will not be shaken up. We will continue with the peaceful demonstrations until Jane Ansah has quit her position,” said Mtambo.

The demonstrations generally went on smoothly under the protection of the Malawi Defence Force (MDF) soldiers after a clash with the police at the start of the protests which led to the law enforcers firing teargas.

The protesters provoked the situation when they started pelting stones at the police to force them out following their siding with the notorious Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) cadets last week in Blantyre which saw the hacking of rights activist Billy Mayaya and three other protesters.

Mtambo never dare to bring your demos here in the Southern Region – here we are for PEACE!!!! we are fed up with your EVIL demos of looting, stealing, breaking with all sorts of destruction and killings therefore we humbly ask you to spare us. We want our children to peacefully continue with their education, we all want to go to work peacefully, we all want to do our businesses peacefully. We all know that for your HRDC to work smoothly you need human blood but you shall repay for this barbaric action which you are causing in this Nation!!!… Read more »

This bunch of lunatics have been to almost every office and yet they get the same answer that we need to wait for the court case. > if Mtambo and his bunch of lunatics and unemployed who are following him think they have evidence of wrong doing by Ansah, let them go to court. Ntambo and his bunch of lunatics and unemployed want Jane Ansah to resign under duress. You can go ahead to destroy whatever but just know that it will be government paying and by government it is the same bunch of lunatics and the unemployed. Jane Ansah… Read more »
