PAC releases Dec 13 Malawi peaceful protests programme

The Public Affairs Committee (PAC) has released a tentative programme for the much awaited December 13 protests and settled for red as dominant colour.

Some citizens will march on December 13 waving red cards — the football penalty symbol for expulsion.

The protests are aimed at forcing the Peter Mutharika administration through Members of Parliament to deliberate and pass the Electoral Reforms Bill as well as addressing other social and economic challenges leading to the current starving amongst Malawians.

The other concerns, PAC wants Malawi Broadcasting Corporation (MBC) to be freed as a public broadcaster, conclusion of corruption cases involving what it calls big fishes and has spoken out against unfulfilled promises and deep rooted corruption in government

According to a statement from PAC, the demonstrations in Mzuzu will start from Katoto Secondary School ground to civic offices; in Lilongwe the demonstrations will start from community centre ground to city council offices, in Blantyre they will start from Clock Tower to civic offices while in Zomba the demonstrations will start from Community Ground to Mponda Freedom Park.

Meanwhile, , PAC executive director Robert Phiri said the organisation will proceed with the planned demonstrations despite getting information about tgovernment circulation of the Electoral Reforms Bills, among members of Parliament (MPs), including the contentious 50+1 provision.

Anye a DPP tiye nawoni basi,atikola agalu amenewa…


Yes indeed, we will pray, fast, march and do whatever it takes to change the regime legitimately for a better Malawi. United we will purge out the devil out of power and usher in a govt for all. No one can stop us marching to the destiny we want. Aluta continua!


What PAC has done shows true colours of what they are supposed to do when rights of vulnerable group failed to be held and this is a serious warning to current government we don’t argue with church or Muslim gothering


Kikiki! This will be a very useless march, government yaiponya game kwakuya.

1. 50+1 to apply to all elected members; the president, the MPs and Councillors.
2. Recall provision for MPs to be restated.

MP wake utiyo angasapote bill imeneyi?
