Malawi Police have managed to return peace at Nchalo in Chikwawa which was on Friday evening hit by a wave of protests and violence but there is still tension in the area.

Man picks fired bullets as Malawi is in state or anarchy

An irate mob damaged houses of some business people accused of trading in human body parts for rituals.

The people were angered by the brutal killing of herds’ boy in June this year and the mob descended on a house of owner of Mphatso Hardware and looted property.

Police rushed to the scene and managed to bring peace and calm after patrolling the area till late in the night.

In Mponela, people have told authorities to transfer some officers or they will hit the streets with protests on Monday.

They accuse the police officers and an intelligence officer from State spying agency NIS of serving the interests of the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP).

The district commissioner in Dowa Alex Mdoko and police spokesperson Kondwani Kandiado said they are yet to receive communication on the demands and the impending protests by the community.

In Karonga, drivers have threatened to hold demonstrations unless the police transfers some traffic police officers whom they say are corrupt.

The drivers have since written the police and the district commissioner detailing the names of the corrupt traffic police officers.

Name and Shame. If we start naming and shaming corrupt public officers they will think twice before they commit acts of corruption. We need to have proof though not doing it out of malice. I know several in Lilongwe I am wiling to name and shame

So all these violent protests are the works of the Chilima % Chakwera as suggested by the Mulhako Government?
