Politicians agree to end political violence

Politicians from both the ruling and the opposition parties in Mangochi have agreed to end the escalating political violence which is a deterrent to a free, fair and credible 2019 highly contentious elections.

Tenthani: Very successful meeting

Centre for Multiparty Democracy (CMD) organized the one day highly successful political indaba in the lake shore violence hot spot district after reports of violent attacks on political opponents.

“We have had a very successful meeting. This should be the end of violence here in Mangochi and other surrounding districts,” said Tenthani.

Even political party representatives were upbeat the meeting had yield the desired the much desired results.

“They came here, discussed and debated the issues and came up with resolutions. They would no longer back political parties which sponsor and back political violence,” he said.

Representatives of United Democratic Front (UDF) Ken Ndanga and other post multiparty democracy parties said the political violence is not what they fought for against the one party rule.

Khwauli Msiska said if the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) were perpetrating political violence, then it was a few selfish individuals who did so without the blessing of the party.

The meeting then agreed to name and shame perpetrators of political violence in the country.

Stop castigating DPP and it’s leadership promote issue based politics there and then political violence will stop. Don’t go to police to sing insulting songs. Mwamva?

Don’t fool us, as long as DPP is still in power it will continue to unleash political violence. You haven’t told us what measures will be taken against the perpetrators of violence. Naming and shaming them is not a solution to ending violence. This can easily be challenged in the court of law.

inutu sometimes see positive things. whether its the dpp youth doing it let what they agreed be implimented. one thing u have to know is that suppose dpp wins it will continue to rule as being violence as well. so my thinking is that all parties should agree to end violence. becoz as i said the violent party whom u are claimming can win the elections becoz they might have massive support

Mangochi district is largely famous for tolerating political violence and historically the majority of people belong to the UDF and when DPP broke away from the original UDF the two parties share support from the same base.

Violence will not end so long as the police who are supposed to protect life and property are partisan favouring the ruling party.

I beg to differ. Malawians are extremely lip-service experts in the region. They promise and never do, they smile at you while inside they are winking at you. They are fond of complaining about bad things, they hardly do anything to stop the bad behaviours, All wrong doings are a result of poor top leaderships. They cling to the adage : NKHWANGWALA WA MANTHA ANAFA NDI UKALAMBA, while things are getting worse.

Zoona amalawi ndi wonvetsa chisoni, mantha too much komaso pali moyo wofuna kuoneka wa bwino kwa ma bwana not standing for the truth .. amalawi tiyeni tiphunzile chilungamo wosati ufiti.

Chilungamo can start with Police, if our police can’t show favouritism to any one from chaponda , mkuona kuti Bulu wangwa. ZInthu zinths kusintha koma pali nthawi…mostly I think the way justice is being done in UK or truthfulness of the people it’s little bit similar ndi Malawi nthawi ya kamuzu, those in UK you can agree but now malawi is Africa

Please name and punish NOT just shame. We want all perpetrators punished.

Another perpetrator is MBC. It engages in verbal political violence using our taxes. May you also punish them.
