Police arrest 15 MCP cadres as political  violence continues in Dowa

Malawi Police in Dowa have arrested 15 suspected Malawi Congress Party (MCP) cadres in Dowa as political violence continues in the district.

Waves of protests erupt
MCP strong hold of centre

Chimwaza Trading Centre was the scene of the battlefield between the violent protesters and the police.

The suspected MCP supporters say their leader Lazarus Chakwera has been robbed of the presidency by the ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP).

Just like at Msundwe in Lilongwe, the MCP cadres are now harassing and intimidating people from the southern region, saying they are the ones to blame for the loss of Chakwera.

Police spokesperson for Dowa Kondwani Kandiado confirmed the arrest of the 15 people in Dowa.

He said the suspected ring leaders of the political violence will be brought to the courts to answer violence related charges.

This is not sounding good at all cost. How can people distinguish the old MCP and the New MCP ? Madando time is coming again in 2024

This is bad. beating every person from the south will make the presidency to stay in the south forever. Chakwera was also voted in the south. Next time he can get no votes from the south because people will fear what will happen if he will win.
