MCP billboard, flags vandalised: DPP thugs blamed

A group of people suspected to be ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) youth militia, has torn a Malawi Congress Party (MCP) elections billboard in Blantyre which was beating the face of presidential candidate Lazarus Chakwera.

MCP billboard vandalised

The DPP Cadets were seen cutting through and ripping the billboard at Kwacha in Blantyre and uprooting flags for MCP in the city.

MCP secretary general Eisenhower Mkaka has since described the act as criminal.

He said the DPP are engaging in “political provocation.”

Said Mkaka: “DPP should not think we are afraid of them because MCP has chosen the path of peace.

“We can give them a dose of their own medicine.”

Mkaka said DPP should not take people for granted because they can be “stretched to the limit” and defend themselves.

MCP also said regime thugs defaced Chakwera’s billboard at Clock Tower in Blantyre.

But DPP spokesman Nicholous Dausi said he was not aware of the development.

Mkaka said MCP would fix the Chakwera billboard, saying  no amount of vandalism will stop the party from defeating DPP in the polls.

MCP has since lodged the complaint to Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC).

The spokesperson of MEC, Sangwani Mwafulirwa, said the electoral body is “considering the complaint” and that “we will advise on the way forward.”

My word to MCP, don’t cry just revenge. Signs are there that the old man will be forced to leave state house next month so just organise your supporters in your strongholds and revenge. Just show that you have more numbers than DPP. The two, three Lomwe Senior guys at area 30 will be defeated , i mean even those Police Officers that have been promoted.

Harry Mkandawire sent his MCP thugs in Mzuzu to pull down DPP billboards during one Mtambo agitated demonstration, the heavy police force exercised restraint but simply watched what they were doing at 11:00am. No body wrote about it. Today you want to look wise writing about MCP billboards and flags! DEMETI.

Actually in BT they have removed all opposition flags. Lunzu is a good example where a day ago there were MCP, UDF, DPP and UTM flags flying side by side, buy yester-morning, all were removed serve for DPP flags

Damaging opposition billboards won’t win DPP votes. It will do the opposite
