Malawi Police beat up road blockers in Lilongwe: Crackdown on lawlessness

Malawi Police in Lilongwe have beaten up some men who were blocking roads at Kasiya and demanding money from motorists.

The unsuspecting men stopped a civilian vehicle which had PMF officers who in turn beat them mercilessly to the amusement of the people.

They were bundled into a pick up vehicle and brought to police.

Police say the men are yet to be charged as some have to be referred to hospital because of injuries they sustained during the beating.

This comes barely a day after Malawi Defence Force (MDF) soldiers on Thursday beat up some people who were stoning the soldiers.

The soldiers were bringing peace and calm at the boma following an illegal demonstration.

Some people in Lilongwe have been harassing motorists, blocking the M1 road at Nathenje or Kamphata or the Lilongwe-Mchinji road demanding money from motorists as the political impasse is heightened over the highly disputed elections.

That’s the way to go, otherwise the police have been getting a bad name for sometime now. Please intensify patrols to clean up the bad habit.
I wish you could do the same to the so-called cadets who harrass innocent people just for having different likes and views. I promise to anonymously contribute to the Police Welfare Fund the day this happens.
Congratulations for teaching layabouts a tough lesson.

Lawlessness in this country isn’t caused by road blockers only. I give no credit to a partisan police that appears to be professional when it deals with opposition matters. While I deplore blocking of the road, Police must also handle lawless committed by DPP cadets. We have in our minds thousands of cases of lawlessness where Police is silent some more serious than road blocking e.g. deaths and torching of peoples property. This police is unprofessional and selective and deserves no credit but utter condemnation. Our MPs, don’t approve Mwapasa’s appointment. It punishes woba nkhuku and leaves woba ng’ombe free.… Read more »
