Mzuzu court convicts Indian for calling HRDC official ‘dog’

The Senior magistrate court in Mzuzu has convicted a 32-year-old Indian national, Anand Mandivar,  for insulting Human Rights Defenders Coalition(HRDC) official Happy Mhango , a  ‘dog’ in public.

Mandivar pleaded guilty when he appeared before the court after his arrest.

Senior Resident Magistrate Godfrey Nyirenda convicted Mandivar on his won plea.

The court adjourned for sentencing in the afternoon.

The incident happened at Kentam Mall in Mzuzu where the two were seeking services from a mobile phone operator.

According to Mzuzu police spokesperson, Paul Tembo, the suspect did not want to join the queue but rather to bypass everyone.

The development angered those who were on the queue and o Mhango who was among the group of people on the queue told the Indian national to respect the people who had queued.

“Don’t bypass the queue please. We are all the same. Everyone is in hurry. If you want, you then  need to ask for our permission. Not just going straight as if you have not found anyone here,” said Mhango.

While refusing to be on a queue, the Indian national called Mhango “a dog”.

After being tipped about the development, police rushed to the scene and arrested the suspect.

This is common, at NRI in Mzuzu they did the same, Indians passed us on the Queue and get services ahead of us. These poor officials also behave like dogs by assisting such people.

Everyday we hear someone during arguments kuti galu wachabechabe iwe. Even cops umva agalu inu. No need to arrest or convict him. He shud have been slapped and given a beating right there. Apa he will just be fined and I wonder which law says you can’t call each other names. Nanga if I call my friend mbuzi iwe during an argument is that an offense.

It is totally insane and deplorable to call any person a dog and he should be given a deserved punishment. However since the said offence was committed due to the suspect jumping queue, the court should have focused and made a law that anyone jumping a queue should be either be fined or do community work because in malawi we have so many people, Malawians and non Malawians who have made a habit of jumping queues be it at road traffic, immigration even banks are in too! Usually it is at road traffic and this creates inefficiency for the officers… Read more »
