Malawi vote protesters to ‘occupy’ State residences: Not moved with Mutharika’s threats to return ‘force with force’

Human Rights Defenders Coalition (HRDC) chairperson Gift Trapence has said post-elections protests will continue as they not moved with his President Peter Mutharika’d threats to return ‘force with force’, disclosing that they will hold four-hour vigils from next Tuesday outside  all State residences .

Anti-Ansah demos to move to State residences

Trapence said protesters will ‘occupy’ State residences until embattled Malawi Electoral Commision (MEC) chairperson Jane Ansah steps down.

“From next week, we will be camping outside State houses, whether it’s Chikoko Bay, Sanjika or Kamuzu Palace, we are not scared. We will hold vigils there until Ansah resigns,” said Trapence.

MEC declared Mutharika of Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) winner of the presidential race in the May 21 Tripartite Elections, with 1 940 709 votes. He was trailed by Malawi Congress Party (MCP)  president Lazarus Chakwera with 1 781 740 votes.

HRDC with support from MCP and UTM Party have been holding countrywide demonstrations to force  Ansah to resign from her position as MEC chair for messing the May 21 2019 elections.

Ansah is accused of fraudulently gifting DPP presidential candidate Peter Mutharika victory in the Presidential Election.

UTM Party president Saulos Chilima and Chakwera have since filed a petition in court, seeking nullification of the results over alleged irregularities.

The Malawi Law Society (MLS) has since asked Ansah to “deeply reflect on the value of remaining in office when her stay seems to be the cause for social disruption and political unrest”.

But Ansah has unequivocally stated that she will not resign unless the court rules that there were irregularities in the elections.

On their part, CSOs led by the HRDC have also vowed never to relent until Ansah throws in the towe

Bola muzidzatipatsa access . Thus the only access road to houses in kumbali, 44 and rand. We were once held hostages during the previous march so we pray for responsible consideration to this effect.

Common sense is indeed the most rare sense! Do you think the President finds any reason in your stupid perception to fire the innocent and strong woman? Get lost idiot.

Not really. There is a saying that you argue with a fool, you also become one. Mutharika is better than these salvages

You cheated us that you wanted Jane Ansah to resign but in your course of protesting you have been targeting, Bill boards for the president Munthalika, DPP Offices, DPP supporters, Government offices and private companies. By your on words that you will be moving to state residences confirms that your demonstrations are not for Jane Ansah as you cheated the Nation. You are now losing the plot pakuti nkhanga zawona.

Neutral person is very neutral. I wish you were sober enough to see his neutrality. If the rage is Jane Ansah, when did state residences become Jane Ansah’s property? Common sense Bob!
