Malawi Law Society write Ibam for cost of post-election violence

Malawi Law Society has written Indigenous Business Association of Malawi (Ibam) for an expert evaluation on economic and financial implications following the disputed presidential elections.

Kaukonde: The political differences appear not to be dying down

In a letter signed by Malawi Law Society (MLS) president Burton Mhango and secretary Martha Kaukonde, the lawyers body has given Ibam up to the close of business of today, Thursday for the submission of the evaluation report.

MLS earlier had issued another letter, saying it was mandated to prosecute the organisers of the demonstrations for the post-election violence.

“As matters are moving very fast in the current circumstances, we would appreciate your input in the earliest possible,” says the letter.

MLS says the political differences appear not to be dying down.

“The chairperson of the Electoral Commission has not resigned as demanded by the demonstrators. 

“The demonstrations are said to be set to continue. The security agents seem to hold on to the point that their capacity is stretched beyond ability to guarantee public safety and protection during such demonstrations,” says the letter in part.

The letter says the society considers that the issues require and urgent and holistic management.

MLS says it is in this context that the law body wishes to develop further strategies and proposals for managing the situation in accordance with the law.

What laws have organizers broken. If you check protests in Hong Kong or Russia, the police arrests people who are unruly and there is no such thing as suing organizers. So the law society has taken governments side. Its not against the law to hold a march or a protest I thought.

You are not being honest. The Law Society is bidding for DPP. It has lost its legitimacy. It goes to court as friends of the court but in fact it made friends with the DPP

People have been asking about your presence in this country concerning the Tippex elections. You were just Idle, mouth agape, hands akimbo and neck adestinate looking at the issue from the corner. Why didn’t you see the disaster before it struck? You are just laughable, naive, senseless, obtuse, witless, moronic and dopey creatures. Please remain in your sleep mode.

It’s unfortunate that Law society is headed by cadets,the president Burton Mhango is a brother to DPP legal advisor,Charles Mhango;society is serving party interest.Its high time they pull out of election case.This is the time We miss leadership of people like Mwankhwawa,Mambulasa & Suz Banda.This current president has been raised by DPP legal advisor,and worked at his firm for sometime,he should not fool Malawians.

Malawi Law Society?
Please school me. Isn’t this the same body that represents our learned lawyers?

IBAM? Since when are they property valuers?

Cadets, you will be fished out of any organisation by the demonstrations. Mudziwika
