Malawi police hunt Ngalande, Kunkuyu for Ndirande violence: 5 arrested over stoning of presidential convoy

Malawi Police are hunting for UTM Party’s Louis Ngalande and Malawi Congress Party (MCP) director of campaign  Moses Kumkuyu for organizing violence in Ndirande Township in Blantyre in which some youths pelted stones at vehicles that made part of the convoy on President Peter Mutharika.

President Mutharika and his runningmate Atupele Muluzi toured the township after presentation of nomination papers for the fresh elections set for July 2020.
While in the township, some youths pelted stones at vehicles of political party officials  that were on the presidential convoy.
Police arrested five youths who have revealed that they had been K1,000 each by Ngalande and Kumkuyu to cause havoc.
One of the arrested youths told the police that Kumkuyu and Ngalande had hired 39 of them.
“We were 39 of us. We were told to mobilise at least 100 women. But we only managed to find 11 vocal women. We were paid K1,000 each. They told us to be chanting anti-DPP slogans while they filmed us on their mobile phones”, Zimba said.
He added: “They wanted us to create a situation where it would look like Ndirande doesn’t want the alliance”.
Police have since said they are conducting further investigations and will bring everyone involved to book.
Ndirande is the stronghold for DPP and UDF and, in organizing this violence, Kumkuyu and Ngalande may have thought they could undermine the popularity of the two parties there.

Fellow Malawians, I saw the video clips yesterday evening. The police must be ashamed to be part of this misinformation.

If what the boy said was true – I honestly believe it is a lie – then those boys and women were in minority. From a quick view one sees more than one hundred people booing. So 39+11 which is 50 is very little compared to what was seen.
Please give us the results of the arson at UTM offices I have Area 23 Lilongwe now! Tisanakalipe!

MCP and UTM presented their papers without any disturbances. Why was there this disturbance when DPP and UDF were presenting their papers. It is Chakwera and Chilima who sent the Ndirande thugs

NIB please tell the president the brutal facts about his popularity. The booing in Ndirande is just the start of what he will face in most parts of the country.

Guys if Kunkuyu and Ngalande really did this, these guys will spoil MCP and Chakwera should be watchful with such type of acts. MCP and UTM were in Blantyre for the same nomination issue but I have never heard that their convoy was stoned somewhere which is a positive step to our democracy and freedom of assembly. It is not good to be fighting as Malawi is one and leaders should stop and condemn this.Every party has a stronghold at where it comes from. MCP has a stronghold in many districts in the central region the fact that you cannot… Read more »
