Minister condemns rights  activist Mtambo shooting

Malawi government spokespersonand Information minister Mark Botomani has condemned the attempted assassination of rights activist Timothy Mtambo.

Botomani: Mtambo’s shooting unacceptable

Assassins fired six bullets into Mtambo’s vehicle Friday night but the anti-Jane Ansah protest organizer managed to run away unhurt.

“We will do everything possible to protect human rights activists in the country,” said Botomani.

It was not known whether Botomani’s sentiments were a true reflection of the government stand on the issue amid heightened speculation that the assassins were state sponsored.

Police spokesperson James Kadadzera said Mtambo has reported the matter to police and the law enforcers would be investigating the matter.

The attempted assassination comes barely a day after three cabinet ministers, including Botomani and Homeland Security minister Nicholas Dausi said Human Rights Defenders Coalition (HRDC) and the opposition have planned to assassinate police officers and burn markets to make Malawi ungovernable.

Mtambo is the chairperson of HRDC and also Executive Director of Centre for Human Rights and Rehabilitation.

This was the work of the DPP sponsored by Peter Hitler Mutharika. This Maniac man is so desperate to cling to power that has intoxicated him. He is sending a clear message to the judges of the constitutional court that should they rule against him he will unleash terror on them

KUKALAMBA KWA MALUME PETER MUTHALIKA KWAYAMBA KUWONEKELA SOPANO.KAYA AKULAMULIRA NDIKUMAPANGA MA DECISION WOPUSA NGATI AMENEWA NDI PETER YEMWEYO OR ACHINA DAUSI , MCHACHA OR WA MUTU WAWUNG’ONO UJA BEN PHIRI?

IF GOVERNMENT CONTINUES WITH THIS CHILDISH BEHAVIOR, MALAWI IS GEARED NOT ONLY TO LOSE DONOR SUPPORT ONCE AGAIN BUT ALSO WITNESS THE WORST BLOODSHED IN THIS PART OF AFRICA.

OLD AGE IS A DISEASE, AT PETER’S AGE OF 80, RESTING WITH GRAND GRAND CHILDREN AT HOME IS THE BEST OPTION.
