Small scale Malawian business operators reschedule demos

Malawian small scale business operators in Blantyre have rescheduled to next week protests against the influx of foreign nationals running illegal businesses in the commercity city.

Cdedi had demos in Lilongwe recently

Initially, the grouping along with the Centre for Democracy and Economic Development Initiatives, were supposed to hold the protests on Friday in the commercial city.

According to Tennson Mulimbula, representative of the business operators in Blantyre said they have not been cleared yet by the city council to proceed with the demonstrations.

According to Mulimbula, the demonstrations are meant to show discontentment with the conduct by foreign nationals to run various businesses without legal requirements.

CDEDI Executive Director Sylvester Namiwa says they expect to deliver their concerns next week.

Namiwa has also urged government to address the issues as the influx of foreign nationals is affecting indigenous Malawians running small and medium businesses.

One would think that demonstrations should be about politics to be justified. Demonstrations should be about issues affecting Malawians in their daily lives and this one of foreign nationals is just the right one. Every country in the SADC region is fighting for this same cause.

The big problem with this good effort is the organizer – has too much of political connotations/ cannot even reach Mtambo’s stature.
