No regime change agenda beyond Ansah issue – HRDC

Human Rights  Defenders Coalition (HRDC) has dismissed the governing Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) claims that they are plotting  insurrection, saying the organisation hat which has successfully organised a series of protests in the country since elections in May, .has no political agenda apart  from ensuring the resignation of Jane Ansah as the head of the Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC).

HRDC Chairperson, Timothy Mtambo (L), Vice Chairperson, Gift Trapence (C) and member Luke Tembo: Ansah must go

HRDC vice-chairperson Gift Trapence was reacting to DPP regional governor for the South, Charles Mchacha who claimed HRDC was working with opposition Malawi Congress Party (MCP) and UTM Party to topple the government of President Peter Mutharika.

Mchacha, who is also Deputy Minister of Transport and Public Works, told a news conference in Blantyre on Thursday that the party membership will now have “renewed energy” to protect its governance status and also “rescue Malawi from anarchy.”

But Trapence in quotes reported by the local press said HRDC are only interested to see to it that the electoral body becomes professional in managing elections and not bastardise people’s votes.

“HRDC has no plans for regime change agenda beyond the Jane Ansah issue,” explained Trapence.

He said HRDC is just serving the interest of Malawians and the voiceless “to make sure that democracy works for every Malawian and that there is rule of law.”

Trapence said HRDC as a human rights organisation is apolitical and is not affiliated to any political grouping.

“We are pro-citizens. HRDC will continue protecting all Malawians,” he said.

Trapence said despite the DPP youth cadets campaign of terror to its members who are targeted for petrol bombs, they will remain resolute to fight for a better Malawi.

Kodi amalawi anzeru anapita kuti?Kusiira munthu akuononga dziko.When Chakwera was leading with votes Ansa was receiving prsaises but instantly she became bad when things started turning around.chakwera immediately declared blood shading.U Mtambo immediately organise Peter must go demos together with mcp/utm.To day do not run away from each other .You went to court yet not satisfied.What is that?,Mtambo must testfy aswell because he is very knowledgeable than all Malawians.What evidence do we need more than this?.They should not lie .Azigoneka mbuli.Mapeto ake adzayankha.Mwawi wa kukhoti anapatsidwa nanga kunja akutaniko.What are they teaching to the young.Are we not teaching lowlessness?

Actions speak louder than words, and what comes out of these HRDC leaders is NOT believable, to say the least. Perhaps, if these leaders resigned, and new ones came in and were the ones saying this, Malawians would possibly take the words with a grain of salt – still unbelievable. The have simply damaged their brand, together with that of MCP and UTM – perhaps unintended consequences. HDRC’s association with The Opposition (and UTM) is obvious. And, there evidence a plenty that the Opposition desires to get to the Presidency by any means, including through the back door. Regime change… Read more »

Mtambo akunamiza ndani.Petet must go ndimaesa amalemba komanso kuyankhula.Pali umboni wina woposa.Asathawane.Onse atatu ayenera kuyimbidwa mulandu ofuna kulanda boma.Mwawi wa kukhoti anapatsidwa.Omweo muutatu wawo akufunanso chiyani kunja kwa khoti.Kodi anthu anzeru anatha?Kuonerera anthu akuphunzitsa anthu kusalabadira malamulo poyerayera.Ndipo akuonongetsa ndalama zoti zikanathandiza chitukuko.

I want to agree with you Genuine Brain. People like Sembereka did not even manage to be selected to Secondary school then. He went to Namwera College of Distance Education (MCDE). By then we used to call them Mileme yotswata ma sets madzulo. Munthu ngati ameneyi akapikitsane ndi Jane Ansah??? Where is our country going??
