Political violence returns to Lilongwe

An irate mob has damaged a head teachers house and smashed his vehicle at Kabudula in Lilongwe after accusing him of helping a ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) win an election.

MCP supporters are protesting poll results

This happened when Malawi Congress Party (MCP) president was calling for calm after days of violence in the cenral region following the declaration by the Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) that President  Peter Mutharika had won the election.

Police are confirming that the head teacher’s house at Mdyanyama primary school in Lilongwe has been damaged whilst his car has been smashed by the irate villagers.

However, the police said they could give details after visiting the area.

During his inaugural speech, President Mutharika said supporters of his DPP have been victims of political violence.

He cited the beating of DPP spokesperson Nicholas Dausi and others as examples of political violence victims.

Mutharika accused civil rights groups and human rights defenders of failing to condemn such acts perpetrated by the opposition.

He however asked DPP supporters not to revenge and retaliate, saying Malawi is a peaceful country.

The 78-year-old won a second term with 38% of the vote to Chakwera’s 35%.

On the other hand, Chakwera called on Malawians to protest, alleging irregularities.

The court this week threw out an injunction he obtained to briefly stop the electoral commission from releasing final voting results where he had sought a partial recount.

Chakwera is more evil than John Tembo. He is a big shame to the Pentecostal Movement. However, this is not surprising as in the quest for power he has adulterated with makanja, the prince of demons in the central region; joyce banda the princess of cashgate and plane gate; and mtambo the homosexual pervert. God loathes you, sir. You will never reign over Malawi. For the rod of the wicked shall not rest over the land alloted to the righteous. God has judged you in public,for rejecting him in public with your perversion, sir.

Chakwera control your party. What benefit is it for Malawians to destroy the little we have got because you want to become president? Stop being selfish! we cant run Malawi with Anarchy! Accept that you will never be president of Malawi! stop MCP from destroying the country! This is not helpful at all> our country is poor and to destroy the poor that we have already is sheer stupidity and selfishness!

Don’t forget that it’s same MCP that chased teachers to their regions. Paja sukulu alive nayo ntchito. Akuthamangitsa munthu amene akuwachotsa umbilical.
