Let justice triumph in Malawi on police rapists

But David encouraged himself in the Lord his God. And David enquired at the Lord, saying, Shall I pursue after this troop? shall I overtake them? And he answered him, Pursue: for thou shalt surely overtake them, and without fail recover all. — 1 Samuel 30:6b-, 8

The rampant indiscriminate looting and vandalism of shops during demonstrations were the regrettable aftermaths of the May 21 2019 Tripartite Elections; or blue painted panga-wielding governing Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) cadets retaliating with their own threatening demonstrations  was unforeseeable; the wide-spread on-camera of women complaining of being sexually molested or raped by members of the police, is extremely deplorable, alarming and should be condemned. The perpetrators should be brought to justice.

Women protest police rape spree at Nsundwe

The continued widespread police attack on women is taking place against a backdrop of a laissez faire government that, while enjoying the benefits of a life of comfort and luxury from the proceeds of citizen’s taxes, has not come to the aid of the women to openly and sternly condemn the attacks.

Sexual abuse of women is a criminal offense punishable by a prison sentence. But it also tarnishes the image of the political party these young democrats represent.

The selfish acts by party operatives are causing people to recall how former president Dr. Hastings Kamuzu Banda dealt with errant political operatives: They lost their jobs, and some were put in jail. This is how the government should act.

Currently, the DPP administration under President Peter Mutharika, by its inactivity, has shown itself to endorsing the young democrats that are performing the illegal act and supporting the policemen that are indiscriminately raping women. The women have come out and agreed to go on camera and recount their horrendous experiences of the arrogant sexual assaults perpetrated by the people that are paid salaries (through taxes) with the women they are raping.

There are questions that many people and organisations in Malawi are asking/. Among them are where are the DPP women?  Why are they not speaking on behalf of their fellow women?

Where are the DPP men (who themselves are husbands)? How would you feel should you return home and find that your wife or sister has been raped? How would you feel if you found that your daughter has been killed?

Where is President Mutharika? Where is the First Lady Madame Gertrude Mutharika? Where are the women Cabinet ministers? Where is the Homeland Affairs Minister?

We call for justice to triumph Malawi.

What is needed here is for the government to ask a neighbouring government to send its expert police officers to come and investigate this case since we cannot trust our own to investigate themselves. South Africa or Botswana Police would be ideal to investigate this.

Isn’t it very obvious APM, the DPP men, the First Lady (The Mother of the Nation), the DPP women, Seodi White and her fellow Ansah demonstrators, Navicha etc, all endorse the heneous crimes committed by the so-called cadets in police uniform.

J.Karim, I can feel your pain though am a man. Truly how would I feel if I returned home only to find that my sister or wife has been raped by one of the police members from a police station closest to my location? Where am I going to report the complaint? Are you surprised that there is total silence from the DPP camp? Don’t! This is a government that may be compared to the kingdom or government of Satan. The origin of sin and lies is traced back to Satan himself. When you report sin or any injustice to… Read more »

DPP Cadets, policemen, and all DPP officials are thieves, criminals, nepotistic and are now busy grabbing everything they can lay their hands on. The future of Malawi under the so called DPP Government is very uncertain, but very soon this evil thing and their so called president will go. We will arrest them and imprison them for putting the country to shame.

Long Live MCP, and Long Live UTM
