Raped Nsundwe women get justice: Court orders their compensation

The High Court in Lilongwe has ordered government to compensate women who were harassed and sexually assaulted  at Msundwe during retaliatory police attacks while simultaneously ordering Malawi Police Service  to arrest police officers involved.

One of the Msundwe victims Tamala Isaac narrates her ordeal
High Court Judge Kenyatta Nyirenda delivered the ruling and further ordered that assessment for the compensation should be done within 21 days by the High Court Registrar.
The judge has further ordered Police to submit a report to court within 30 days of the judgment on investigations on the matter.
The women told of harrowing experiences of how the police officers forced themselves into the women, accusing them of hiding the killers of the police officer Imedi when he led a team of law enforcers into the area to clear a road which was blocked to prevent people from going to Lilongwe to attend a rally held by former president Peter Mutharika.

Is this a criminal case or a civil case?? Why the compensation? What about people who lost their lives during demos?? What about a woman who was undressed in Mangochi?? Dziko lapitadi ku central.

And so the story continues….. the police is sued and has to compensate the injured parties, wonderful news. But guess who pays the bills. Yep, you got it – the beleaguered tax payer. Meanwhile the actual wrongdoer is sitting quietly laughing

Honestly my fellow has been brutaly murdered at that area by a mod ..
how would i go to that place and think of unzipping /trousers down to do this act..?
This rape case was an HRDC masterminded ..case… these payments are for those areas support during the struggle to ouster DPP.
and now they have being disgused as compansetion by the Judges as they too have companserted them selves through the MEC payments .

Dont worry, the Police criminals who did this will explain in court very soon. No need to explain here. In court in front of a judge.
