Some rights activists say they have reported the opposition and Human Rights Defenders Coalition (HRDC) to International Criminal Court for alleged crimes against humanity.

The letter requests the International Criminal Court (ICC) to investigate Malawi Congress Party (MCP) president Lazarus Chakwera, UTM president Saulos Chilima and HRDC officials Timothy Mtambo and Gift Trapence with crimes against humanity.

“We write this letter to you to inform the ICC and the rest of the world that acts of violence and direct and indirect rights abuses are escalating in Malawi in a guise of exercising human rights,” says the letter in part.

The letter blames Chakwera, Chilima, Mtambo and Trapence for violence during the anti-Jane Ansah demonstrations.

The letter has been signed by Fryson Chozi, Unandi Banda, Luther Mambala, Ms. Carol Mvalo, Peter Mumba, Emily Banda, Bright Kampaundi, Phillip Kamangira, Kulimbamtima Chiotcha, Mervin Nqumayo and Moses Chione.

Some Malawians have taken up in various social media platforms to condemn and bash the prights activists accusing them of being on the government ‘pay roll’ which they have dismissed.

Desperate times call for desperate measures. This is a sign that DPP is very scared of what the Malawi public is doing. Look at all the measures most of which really look desperate and not well thought through. Malawians have really put the DPP government on a back foot. It is unprecedented to see how desperate they are acting to silence Malawians. It is also interesting to see how much Malawians have learnt to fight for their freedom. This is the birth of a new Malawi.

In case you don’t know, the ICC already knows what is going on in Malawi and they don’t need to be schooled by idiots like you. We know who Chozi and the likes of him; beneficiaries of DPP’s leftovers. In fact ICC judges are surprised that their colleague, a supreme court judge for that matter, has sunk so low as to be bribed by croocked party leadership to rig an election.

In fact this greedy organisation should instead report APM to ICC for gross human rights violations and abuses, rather than Chakwera and Chilima.

Do these goats have any idea about the definition of ‘crimes against humanity’? Where were they when 20 Malawian nationals were killed on July 20, 2011 by the DPP cadets in police uniforms?

So these DPP crooks want to cash on these demonstrations?It is these types of provocations masterminded by the Nicholas Dausis behind the sins that anger demonstrators.In my view, these are the people to foot the cost of damages.Instead of critically addressing the issues at hand, it is really annoying for these people to be barking like mad dogs!It is wrong to think that International bodies can be fooled like DPP cadets!

come on guys, you are not serious. Do you really understand crimes against humanity? I am not even a law expert but am shocked with your decision to bring the demos to ICC. please don’t musatichititse manyazi. The issue is MEC chairperson not wanting to resign even though her position is now untenable. I hear she is a high court Judge but can’t she judge the situation? I were her, l would resign from the moral point of view, even though from the legal point of view, have not been found guilty. I cannot understand, she is waiting for court… Read more »
