Malawi Police forcibly evict ex-MYPs  from war memorial pillar

Malawi Police has forcibly evicted ex-Malawi Young Pioneers (MYPs) who had been camping at a war memorial pillar in the Capital City’s Area 18 to force the government pay them K1.6 billion pension arrears.

EX- MYP members

Leader of the group Franco Chirembo confirmed armed police chased them away from the place they have been camping for a year now, saying the law enforcers used excess force against people who were not armed.

“Tell them we are not cowards; we will now camp at Capital Hill in the coming days because that is where our money is. We will not surrender. We are now going to capture Capital Hill,” said the highly charged Chirembo.

President Peter Mutharika is expected to lead the nation in the coming days to remember those who died during the first and the second world wars.

The place has also the statue of Kamuzu Banda, the first president of the country who was also the commander-in-chief of the paramilitary wing then of the Malawi Congress Party, the MYP.

A visit to the place showed that the grass shacks which the ex-MYPs had been using for a year as their homes had been completely destroyed and armed police were guarding the place.

There was no immediate comment from the government.

These people should be in jail …or answering charges of crimes against humanity. No foul should pay them. They were the worse creatures on earth. Go camp at MCP headquarters please ask for monies there… FOULS !

Thugs asking victims to compensate them…….what kind of wickedness is that? BTW, MCP employed you to victimize us. Go back to your employer and ask for that compensation. Stupid people!

Camping for a year in the city, and without proper sanitation? In this age?
Their eviction was the only answer basi; and, moreover, they should get MCP to pay them what they claim as deserved.
It is counter to the administration of justice to ask the same Malawians who were brutalized by these thugs to pay up.

Ineyo bambo anga anawakakamizidwa kutsegula pakamwa ndipo a Payaniya atatu adawalavurira malovu ndi makhololo mkamwamo. Similar stories can be narrated by millions of other Malawians whose taxi money they need today. Over my dead body I will never allow part of tax money I contribute to be given to these thugs, rewarding them for these atrocities. SHAME ON THESE TERRORISTS.

why MCP?? when we all know that the people who were in MCP that time are still alive and are no longer in MCP. DAUSI and Ntaba are good examples.
