National Advocacy Platform against selective justice in Malawi

National Advocacy Platform (NAP) has advised President Lazarus Chakwera to strengthen civil society’s space unlike what was happening with Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) regime and stressed that the law should be applied fairly to all with no room for selective justice in the Tonse Alliance-led government.

Kondowe: NAP against selective justice

NAP Chairperson Benedicto Kondowe said those who violate the law even in Tonse government should face the justice.

He made the call during a news conference on Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) Communiqué on Governance and Human Rights in Malawi.

The communiqué, which will be presented to government, was developed following the CSOs Governance and Human Rights conference held on July 16 in Lilongwe.

“We would want justice to prevail regardless if the political party that one supports or belongs to. As long as it is established that someone violated the law, let the law take its course,” said Kondowe.

He said government should also allow voices geared at holding authorities accountable; promote human rights, accusing the previous government for trying to suffocate NGOs through review of the NGOs Act.

“We are asking the current regime to act decisively and swiftly on outstanding human rights violations and pilferage of public funds including the unexplained killings of persons with albinism, and the raping of women in Msundwe in Lilongwe,” Kondowe said.

He also said government should act on the murder of university student Robert Chasowa and Isaa Njaunju is a matter of urgency.

The platform also calls for immediate actions to depoliticize the operations of the Anti-Corruption Bureau, Malawi Police Service, governance institutions such as the office of the Ombudsman among other bodies.

NAP is a group of CSOs aimed at promoting good governance and human rights.

Nothing wrong with starting with the DPP clowns while the kill is still fresh. Otherwise they will run off and hide the loot. Bloody thieves.

I’m a staunch Tonse Alliance supporter. Koma if the authorities don’t do anything about the Robert Chasowa murder in the next 2 weeks, then I will know that whatever is happening now is merely what is called Victor’s Justice and not true justice. After making very important strides in the Issa Njaunju murder investigations, let justice also glow in the Chasowa murder story. The findings of the Special Commission of Inquiry are there for all to read. Justice for Chasowa now!!!

Equally, two wrongs do not make a right. I agree with your very sound and righteous logic above. However why is that Chakwera’s government advocate the use of law and yet people get arrested before the charges are made clear in some cases and they are imprisoned? is that proper use of the law? I like your idea of respecting the law. Malawi obviously needs to improve on that !big time! but you be the demonstrators of that first! don’t imprison people because you don’t like them! Don’t imprison people because they disagree with you! certainly don’t imprison people because… Read more »

Nonsense. Tonse Alliance has not, as yet, committed any crime. We know from our past experience with Malawi regimes that they soon will; but we will cross that bridge when we get there. Right now, let’s punish the DPP thieves whom we know for sure have stolen our money. Let’s keep our eyes on the ball, please!! Let’s not get distracted.
