Kunkuyu and police confirmed the incident, saying the thugs attacked his home in Nancholi, Blantyre in the wee hours of Friday.

The MCP director of campaign said the security guard at his property  raised an alrm when he noticed the gang and they hurriedly threw the  petrol bomb on his car.

One of the thugs could be heard screaming ‘hit the car’ as another launches the petrol bomb into the air, a guard said when interviewed by Nyasa Times.

The petrol-bomb attackers  suspected to have h links to the ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) have been increasing the  political terror following the standoff of the May presidential elections and  orchestrated to instil fear in opposition ranks and the civil society against the proposed mass demonstrations  next week.

An office belonging to MCP vice president Sidik Mia  has also been petrol bombed in recent weeks.

Malawian political scientist Michael Jana, who lectures at South Africa’s University of Witwatersrand, said the attacks were “to intimidate and silence the people”.

“It is very unfortunate because this is suppression of dissenting voices which should not be condoned in a democracy,” he said.

The petrol-bombs have also target the property of Timothy Mtambo, the chairman of  Human Rights Defenders Coalition (HRDC), and the executive director of the Centre for Human Rights and Rehabilitation (CHRC)  who has been at the forefront of protests following elections in May, which the opposition says were rigged. The results are being contested in the constitutional court.

IT LOOKS LIKE DPP THEY DO NOT KNOW THAT SIDIK MIA IS A WELL-TRAINED MILITIA FROM IRAN AND HE FINISHED HIS TRAINING IN IRAQ.

DPP DO NOT TAKE HIS SILENCE FOR GRANTED ,THE MAN IS DANGEROUS THE KIND OF BOMBS HE CAN MAKE CAN NEVER BE CONTAINED BY ANY FIRE FIGHTER.

DO NOT IGNITE HIS ANGER PLEASE. DAUSI BE WARNED ,,,WE CAN MAKE MORE THAN PETROL BOMBS BUT WE DO NOT WANT TO KILL INNOCENT VICTIMS …

I AM WARNING YOU DAUSI, BEN PHIRI AND MCHACHA. BE CAREFUL

Winston Msowoya, So do you want Dausi to continue with what he was doing in MCP? You have been complaining that MCP was bad as it inflicted pain on Malawians through the Youth League under Dausi. Do you want the cadets to take it from there since Dausi is the mastermind in all this as this is what he knows best since he is among them? Was he given thatposition for this purpose? You don’t put out a fire using a highly inflamable substance. “Mau odekha amaphwetsa mkwiyo!” That’s the adage. “Dearly beloved, avange not yourselves, but rather give place… Read more »

Tit- for Tat.What is happening to day,is a retaliation of the MCP’s past brutality against the innocent Malawians.Thousands and hundreds of our beloved ones lost their lives at the hands of the MYP dangeons.It is the MCP that planted the seeds of hate and tribalism which is still haunting thousands of Malawians.It is indeed also that the MCP regime,tightened the noose of tribalism against the people of the North who themselves too,shade their precious blood for freedom and endependence of our homeland.MCP,introduced the deadliest QUOTA SYSTEME against the minority people of the North and on top of that,deported government workers… Read more »

You can’t stop this that you have started. When you see businesses in city centre being petro bombed, when you see shops being targeted just to spite someone is when you will know that Malawi has never been a warm heart of Africa. It is a land of NJALA, NTHENDA & NSANJE
