This followed after police fires teargas to disperse the protestors around Simama Hotel as residential neighbourhood were shrouded with clouds of teargas .

The marchers were in the streets after the High Court in Lilongwe released a ruling in the morning dismisdimg Attorney General (AG) Kalekeni Kaphale application to stop demonstrations for causing violence.

The AG had also petitioned that demonstration organisers, the Human Rights Defenders Coalition (HRDC), should pay K2 billion as surety to cover damages incurred during demonstrations.

HRDC is continuing with its series of nationwide protests  to force Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) chairperson Justice Jane Ansah and her commissioners to resign for presiding over flawed May 21 Tripartite Elections which saw President Peter Mutharika re-elected.

Judge Kenyatta Nyirenda dismissed Attorney General’s application with costs.

Dont worry gentlemen. Your time will come thats when you will realise soldiers are not your friends. Right now u are ululating and dancing to the burning of police vehicles.How shallow can one be. Tomorrow you cry there is no medicines, there is no chlorine.Government is not a producer of anything. There are providers of services using taxpayers.monies.The judges are compromised . Its so obvious. You do not need rocket science to say which way the current court case judgement will come. Anyway the end will justify the means

These are the costs of appointing relations to top Goverment positions, they become liabilities in times like these as they cannot offer a professional advice to the President, they are as compromised as Jane Ansah..I mean the Mwapasas of this World?

How i wish my country was at peace.stop treating citizens as ignorants please,the more u take them foolish the more u anger them,what do u expect an angry person to behave? How can ppo stay calm when u keep oppressing them?are these the same ppo ur claiming to have elected u to serve them? I gues no.if they are, then show them respect.no one above the law, if facts dnt agree with the theory,then change the facts not theory, u can not use nonsesical injunctions out of the constitutional book as law,this only tells citizens being taken for fools
