Malawi Police block supporters of opposition leader at airport: MCP condemn action

Malawi Congress Party (MCP) president Dr Lazarus Chakwera was prevented from addressing his supporters Saturday at Kamuzu International Airport in Lilongwe by armed police officers that blocked his party supporters from assembling at the airport as the leader of opposition returned from Singapore.

Chakwera: Returning home

Chakwera had gone to Singapore to attend the world fellowship for Assemblies of God Annual General Conference.

But police in riot gear dispersed the crowd which were gathering to welcome Chakwera and the MCP leader to address them.

Police said airport was not a venue for political rallies.

Chakwera was forced to have a make shift venue to address supporters who had still waited for him.

He accused Police of using “frivolous excuse” to block his supporters form giving him a rousing welcome.

MCP deputy Secretary General, Eisenhower Mkaka described the Police conduct as retrogressive to hard earned democracy.

Mkaka said party members have rights to welcome their leader and interact with him without hindrances.

“We don’t know where this country is heading to,  look the president is addressing the party members here at the bush this is very bad,” said Mkaka.

Those supporting Chakwera’s intention to be welcomed at the Airport must be sick in your head resulting into your sick thinking and expectation. You can’t expect just a mere opposition leader to be emulating the practices or honour accorded to a Head of State. Mukupopa munthu to be dressed in borrowed robes. God willing, Chakwera must wait for his time. Komanso a Chakwera nanunso penapake you don’t seem like an educated kapena a former man of God. Can you really be serious nkumaona zopusazo inu mukuona nkumayembekezera zopusazo? Don’t disappoint us. Kenaka muziti ndife a MCP owukila pamene we jus… Read more »
