Malawi police counting anti-Jane Ansah protest damage cost

Malawi Police say they are counting the cost of Thursday’s anti-Jane Ansah protest damages across the country which others say it is colossal.

Kadadzera: mobs went on the rampage, torching offices and looting shops, offices

Police spokesperson at the police headquarters James Kadadzera said the auditing team department has Friday morning started counting the cost.

“We can only know the cost after the completion of this exercise,” said Kadadzera.

The anti-Jane Ansah protests turned violent in some areas and districts such as in Lilongwe where protesters vandalized JICA offices and ministry of Information offices at city centre, in Mzimba, the protesters torched a police post.

In Mzuzu, the violent demonstrators vandalized a health centre as well as the regional office of the ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP).

Protest organisers chairperson Timothy Mtambo disassociated the Human Rights Defenders Coalition (HRDC) from the vandalism and violence.

He called on the police to take to justice the suspected perpetrators of the violence.

HRDC member in Mzuzu Charles Kajoloweka accused police of igniting the violence after they fired tear gas at the protesters who were heading to the civic offices.

He said: “This mess has been caused by the police. They fired tear gas when people were marching peacefully. So, whatever people destroy in the locations it is police’s fault.”

Northern Region Police spokesperson Peter Kalaya said the protesters provoked the situation by throwing missiles at the police who retaliated by firing tear gas to restore order.

I always feel sorry for this name JAMES KADADZERA. I know its employment but you are dooming the future of your children that is if you have any. Duties of police are now out of direction. Its indeed very sad and the sufferers will be children and relatives in course of seeking employment or advise them to change names on their certificates otherwise no job.

THE STUPID PRESIDENT AND JANE ANSER ARE THE REAL CULPRIT HERE AND INDEED ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGES WHATSOEVER IF ANY. BECAUSE OF THEIR PREJUDICE AND IMPUNITY AND RECKLESS THINKING THAT MALAWIANS ARE STUPID AND TAKING MALAWIANS FOR RANSOM. YES POLICE CALCULATE THOSE DAMAGES AND ENSURE YOU PRESENT THEM TO THOSE TWO IDIOTS THE PRESIDENT AND HIS DARK ASS JANE ANSER GIRLFRIEND. THEY HAVE TO BE HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR ALL THAT AND IF THEY DONT AGREE OR SUCCUMB TO WHAT MALAWIANS ARE DEMANDING THEN RATHER BURN THEM TO ASHES BECAUSE THEY ARE NOT LARGER THAN THE WHOLE MALAWI POPULOUS. BURN… Read more »

TIMOTHY MTAMBO CAN NOT HAVE IT BOTH WAYS, HE ORGANIZES THE DEMONSTRATIONS AND WHEN VIOLENCE TAKES HOLD , HE SAYS HE HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH IT. WHOM IS HE KIDDING??

HE AND HIS GANG MUST BEAR ALL RESPONSIBILITY AND NOT TO THROW THE UNSUSPECTING MASSES TO THE WOLF WHILE HE AND HIS GANG ESCAPE JUSTICE. HUMAN RIGHT, COUNTS BOTH WAYS.

Mbuzi iwenso, it’s the right to demonstrate peacefully. What come out as violence is not organised. It comes in the course of misbehaving people, police who needs to be punished individual

Try to think wise ,you can not remove me from my post because you dont like me simiraly you can not remove your father or your mother because you dont like him or her from you family. APM sees nothing wrong with Jane Assah. You only hate her for somebody`s benefit which you yourself dont know. Dont mess up things and expect APM to tolalet stupidity you people are doing.

According to various international observers she presided over the most peaceful, free, fair and credible elections ever. The few tippexed results summary sheets can’t change the final presidential results hence declaration and acceptance by all of MPs and Councillors results. Every multiparty election since 1994 have been challenged in courts in one way or another. Even the two elections presided over by Justice Msosa were challenged in court (although some want us to believe she sailed smoothly). But because we had true patriotic Malawians in the name of Gwanda Chakwamba, John Tembo and Brown Mpinganjira they put Malawi first and… Read more »

so your dumb ass thinks is wiser than the 63% Malawians huh! The EU observers said tabulation of results was a problem that alone she has to step down. The use of tip-ex wether impacted the outcome or not she still have to step down to pave way for investigations to prove her innocence If she still on that position she will influence the investigations. Is that hard for you to grasp or you still a gulible?
