PAC chairman Reverend Chingota said this Thursday when he met regional committees of the early warning system structures established to deal with political and religious violence in a peaceful way.

“Of late we have seen a rise in religious and political violence. This is disturbing so we want these structures to be on the alert,” said Chingota.

He urged all Malawians to be united regardless of their political affiliation or faith if the country is to develop.

Chingota said currently his organisation is mediating in religious conflicts in Mangochi and Ntcheu among other districts.

Just a week ago violence marred an opposition organised rally in Mzuzu where panga knives wielding thugs disrupted the rally.

Two years ago, violence erupted in Mangochi where Muslims were chasing away Christians over disagreements of sale of meat in a central market.
