Malawi Police and owners of both private and public institutions whose property was damaged on Thursday by violent protesters say they will be calculating the cost of the damage this Friday.
Police spokesperson for the north Peter Kalaya said Thursday was not ideal for the exercise because the protesters were violent.
Some shop owners and private and public institutions officials whose property was damaged in the violent protests in Mzuzu, Lilongwe and Blantyre said they would do the exercise calculating the damage today this Friday.
It had to take the Malawi Defence Force (MDF) soldiers in Mzuzu to stop the protesters from rioting, looting and damaging property in the city.
In Lilongwe, the organisers of the protests, failed to present a petition to authorities at Capital Hill, the seat of government because of running battles between the protesters and police.
At least two police officers were injured at Capital Hill, according to police spokesperson James Kadadzera.
In Blantyre, the protesters manhandled one police officer whilst others had their shields forcibly taken away by the rampaging protesters who wanted to go to Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) offices but were stop by the police.
One of the organisers of the protests, Timothy Mtambo, hailed the protests, saying they had achieved their goal.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
