Malawi Police arrest 22 DPP Cadets for serious assault on cops

Malawi Police on Friday arrested 22 Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) Youth Cadets for allegedly beating up and seriously injuring two police officers on duty at Tsangano Road Block in Ntcheu.

DPP cadets have a history of abductions and killings. Party cadets brandishing pangas a day before the July 20 2012 demonstrations

National Spokesperson for Malawi Police Service James Kadadzera confirmed the arrest.

It is alleged that the cadets picked up a quarrel with the officers for uttering offensive and abusive words on the law enforcers.

They were travelling to Parliament Building in Lilongwe where their party leader and Malawi President Peter Mutharika officially opened the 46th session of parliament and 2017/18 budget meeting.

Kadadzera said the arrests were made in Lilongwe and all the suspects were later released on police bail on the same day.

According to the National Police Publicist, the arrested cadets have been charged with an act that may cause grievance harm.

Apparently the ruling party gurus were demanding for their unconditional release and that charges should be dropped.

    I am eagerly waiting to see how this case will conclude.

    You arrested Wandale’s supporters who are fighting for a just cause and they spent almost a week in police cell without bail. But you arrest these thugs and lease them just after a minute. This happens only in Malawi.

  8. Kaka says:

    kkkkkkkkkk…. That’s the end of the case.

  9. muuni says:

    anachita bwino. takhala tikunena kuti they pose a threat to democratic Malawi. harrassing high profile pple in the presence of the same police. mwana akamatukwana alendo kholo nkumamulekelera tsiku lina amazatukwana makolo pagulu

  10. shame to see this coming from the government side. DPP is a party of terror, I dont just see how and why we put this dangerous party in power. A party that treasures in infringing pain in people; I dont see how such a party will work to improve the lives of the people they are infringing pain. What a failed leadership the DPP has presided over.

    akanakuphani apolice nose, mesa ndinu mumagwira sika ntchito yomanga a opposition, akanakukhapani zezeni, Agalu inu

  12. Nikolo says:

    Very strange that you injure a law enforcer whilst on duty, you get arrested and released on bail same day .

  13. KayK says:

    Uku ndiye kuweta a fisi…. why demanding unconditional release of criminals? a Police nawo tulo akuphani muone….

    Chipani chama Savage

  17. Tsalayekha Mzika says:

    Since the article says, apparently some ruling party gurus were seeking the unconditional release of the savagely behaving DPP cadets, let hope it’s not what happening. But if this is what happened then shame on those so-called gurus. For they bring shame to the preisdent and the ruling party itself. Malawi needs to move on and in order to do that we need law abiding citizens not savages who think that because they belong to the ruling party or claim so are above the law. Let’s have right thinking malawians and let have gurus who are gurus because of their wisdom and integrity. Viva Malawi.

    Kuongola mtengo nkulinga uli waung’ono. Njoka mukuwetazi zidzakulumani nokha aPolice.

  19. Concerned Malawian says:

    Njoka saweta we all know this,a police mwakhala mukuweta njoka zimenezi for sometime. Do parties have millitary wings in this day and age

  20. Bulutu says:

    Time will tell. What is it that is happening that has never happened before? People have done all bad they can while in power but they have come down and faced the music thereafter while on the other side. When you are at on the elephant’s back do not think there is no jew down there!!!

    Let them play with the army and they will regret. Azisewelea ndi a police omwewo who are kind and do not know how to defend one another. There is no discipline and this is encouraged by those asking for the unconditional release of the cadets. I doubt if the case will even be heard.

  21. Hokoyo says:

    Police should take these cadets to court. They ignore the politicians who are trying to defend them. Take them to court. Azolowela.

  22. WemawaMungu says:

    As a nation under the rule of law if the so called cadets were in wrong the demands for them to be released unconditionally is not in order, because entertaining such behavior of attacking and insulting our men and women in uniform will only reduce our beloved country into chaos. Apparently, no one whosoever is above the law even the president.

  23. Tafwauli Chipalamandule says:

    Congrats the cops! Akuzolowela agaluwa. Employed and getting paid for beating people. Zautsiru – kutha mapulani et!

  24. Kalanga says:

    That’s how youth behave,not productive.

    The challenge of mediocrity, its the same police who defend the same bad boys now see ,kukolola zomwe munafesa umbuli inu too much .nthawizonse kubakila anthu oipa now face ,amawona Ambuye

  26. pangmen says:

    Forget it, that is the end of story. This should even be news.
