Malawi activists on campaign for speedy trial on looters: ‘Wear red face mask’ campaign

A civil rights body is launching a “wear red mask” campaign to force state prosecutors and courts conduct a speedy trial for the suspected looters and economic plunders of the government.

Malawians will be putting on red masks to warn respective prosecuting and investigating agencies that they are following the cases with keen interest.

President Lazarus Chakwera is putting the economic plunder at K1.3 trillion, a figure vehemently rejected by the opposition Democratic Progressive Party (DPP).

Centre for Social Accountability and Transparency (CSAT) says the campaign would mobilise Malawians to demand accountability, justice and speedy trial of the cases.

Executive director of the organization Willy Kambwandira says in a statement Malawians will be putting on res masks to warn state prosecutors and courts to speedily conclude the cases.

“If the cases are not concluded by end of this year, Malawians will be urged to start wearing black masks as a symbol of dissatisfaction with the current administration,” says the statement in part.

The state has already arrested some officials from the former DPP-led government on public theft and abuse of office charges.

There is donor freeze and people now are making cartoons of themselves just to win favour with Chakwera. They have heard that he wants to appoint boards in the next forty days. Hamphrey Mvula is running to almost every radio making comment even on issues that he is not conversant with. He said DPP should have apologised. Does Humphrey remember that he has a case on corruption which is dying in the corrupt courts. Humphrey should apologise to Malawians for running down Shire bus company and rendering many people jobless.

Many such cases have stalled for many reasons among inadequate evidence, inadequate capacity at ACB, inadequate judges who very often have too much on their plate. Some of these cases might take over 5 years just like that of Mphwiyo.

A trial goes with evidence… gather the evidence otherwise they will walk or get petty sentences
