Police deny rights defenders access to Nsundwe forces violence suspects

Rights activists, the Human Rights Defenders Coalition (HRDC) on Thursday failed to meet and assess their conditions 41 suspects in the violence and murder of a police officer at Nsundwe in Lilongwe.

Mtambo (L) and Trapence were denied by police to visit the suspects in cell 

The HRDC officials, who included its chairperson Timothy Mtambo, vice chairperson Gift Trapence and Madonald Sembereka had gone to Lilongwe police station in Area 3, to verify reports that the police were torturing the suspects with some of them denied food for days.

“Our visit was propelled by the reports of mistreatment of the suspects whilst in police custody but we have not been allowed to see them,” said Mtambo.

The suspects are expected to be arraigned in court on Friday.

Some of the demonstrators who participate in anti-Jane Ansah protests organised by the HRDC come from Nsundwe.

However, the area has now been synonymous with violence as a self-proclaimed vigilante group calling itself Nsundwe forces has been unleashing terror activities in post-election violence.

Timothy Mtambo, Gift Trapence and Sembereka we are behind you. I have never heard any authority of government on earth failing to resolve such a simple conflict. The taxpayers we don’t want Jane Ansah to continue receiving our money. Why can’t the president fire her?

Your names speaks volumes on how much you hate the president from the South and in fact this is not the first time we have heard you and your people of the Pathological hate you have over the DPP and Lhomwes. I wish you have a picture if the law on the elections to what it says otherwise courts are there to help the aggrieved parties, now why not Mtambo and Trapence take this matter to court if they know what they are calling for is within the laws of the land? Take your time to ask your leaders why… Read more »

The police must calculate properly and allow those who want to see the suspect do so without any restrictions.
Memories are still fresh that them they killed 11 people, only in Mzuzu, on 11July,2011. Non of the police was arrested. Malawi will stand one day and avenge for there lost relatives. If they cannot handle this case of the fate of just two police officers, I am afraid more death of police officers can materialise.

The things Malawians cheer for sometimes, no wonder we are the poorest country in the world. What good comes from police torturing inmates? Why are we this backward in 2019???
