Police justify tear gas spray at MCP headquarters

Malawi police in Lilongwe have justified the spray of tear gas at Malawi Congress Party (MCP) headquarters in Lilongwe on Tuesday, saying the place was a hot spot for political violence.

Tear gas

National police spokesperson James Kadadzera said MCP officials and supporters used the place for violent protests.

“We are warning those instigating the violence and those taking part in the violence that they will be dealt with according to the law,” said Kadadzera.

He said the Republican constitution and the laws of Malawi do not allow violent political violence.

There were ugly scenes at the MCP headquarters on Wednesday when the police invaded the party building and smoked out all party supporters and officials who had assembled there.

But organizing secretary of the party Khumbize Kandodo said the officials and supporters were meeting to make a postmortem of the election.

She said the police were wrong to storm a private building without a search warrant.

MCP, you know what? You’ve had it so good in this country for the longest time, and you think you own the place! You can’t continue to sow seeds of discontent, and possible revolt without the Authorities doing something about kit: that would be dereliction of their duty.
You are lucky that Malawians didn’t ban your party outright, when your dictatorship was terminated albeit too late. Asa.

Agreed Mr Kadadzera. The party supporters turned the MCP headquarters into a Dambwe and used it as a launch pad for the terrorism they exacted on the City of Lilongwe and the outskirts Thursday to Tuesday. Die to your action of smoking the thugs out yesterday, life was normal in Lilongwe today.
