Mutharika labels Malawi rights group HRDC as terrorist organization: Attacks MCP

President Peter Mutharika has described rights group, the Human Rights Defenders Coalition (HRDC) as a terrorist organization.

President Mutharika: HRDC is a political group which is slowly degenerating into a terrorist organization

In in his New Year’s message, Mutharika said HRDC organised protests have led to some potential investors turning their back to Malawi, thereby harming the economy.

“HRDC is a political organization which is slowly degenerating into a terrorist organization by terrorizing people,” said Mutharika.

But HRDC chairperson Timothy Mtambo has since dismissed Mutharika’s sentiments, saying  the Head of State is out of his mind.

HRDC has been organizing anti-Jane Ansah protests since the highly disputed May 21 tripartite elections, demonstrations HRDC says are aimed at forcing the Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) chairperson Timothy Mtambo resign for the messy elections.

Mutharika called on both the HRDC and opposition leaders to be patriotic by stopping organizing the protests.

Mutharika also attacked the Malawi Congress Party (MCP), saying state violence, oppression and victimization of citizens inhibited people’s participation in the economy.

“With violence, oppression and victimization of the people, we were deliberately creating poverty instead of ending it. You built a good house, and it was taken away from you.

“You made money, and you were killed or sent into exile. You were creative and talented, you had to be punished for it.

He also asked the media to avoid abusing the freedom of expression and freedom of the press by stopping publishing and airing malicious stories.

Exactly what I expected from a clueless leader, plus minds and brains full of tipex, we had some people with a lot of money during MCP and were never arrested a good number of professors more interigent than this maroon tipex president, after all do not compare one party system and multi party. This is where you miss the point mr tipex. If DPP was rulling by that time how many people would you have killed if you can kill this time? How much would you store if you can steal now when there is check and balance, How nepotistic… Read more »

Nyapapi iwe. Just thank a god that ma judge unawasankha aja akupatsa judgement. Some of them have accepted your bribe and we know them. Koma dziwani kuti if your judges take that money outside Malawi especially to Europe, kuli anthu akukudikilani kumeneko mukayaluka. Take it to China where you have laundered all that aid money you stole.

Let’s get one thing clear: HRDC has never harboured a desire to be a political party. It’s just that the acting president is slowly losing his senses and sees everything against his usurped rule as an enemy regardless of the logical advice being offered. The truth of the matter is that his party, aided by Ansah, stole votes of over 60%+of Malawians to claim a stolen election. It is these aggrieved citizens which the HRDC is leading the protests for. It is common knowledge that DPP has always taken advantage by ordering the so-called cadets to infiltrate the peaciful protests… Read more »

Fix corruption instead of being a cry baby Mr President. The corruption in Malawi stinks and no one does anything about it
