Suspected MCP supporters torch police unit, head teacher house

A gang of people, suspected to be Malawi Congress Party (MCP) supporters have torched a police unit and a head teacher’s house at Msundwe in Lilongwe.

Earlier protestors also set Mpingu police station on fire

Msundwe Trading Centre has become a political violence hot spot since the highly disputed presidential election which put ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) candidate Peter Mutharika as winner.

National police spokesperson James Kadadzera confirmed the incidents but said he would make details available through a press statement.

According to eye witnesses, the violent gang of people said Mutharika is an illegitimate president running an illegitimate government, saying MCP president Lazarus Chakwera was robbed of victory.

The said violent gang is also attacking those deemed to be DPP sympathisers as well as blocking the Lilongwe-Mchinji road and violently demanding money from motorists.

What a careless statement. The people being targeted here are southerners. So you mean these Malawians should suffer for doing business in the centre. Please be careful the way you make public comments. Akaotchera manyumba abalewa akuzuzika kwabasi and boma silikwanthandiza mngakhale analivotera ndi iwowa.

Anybody who breaks the law these days is called an MCP supporter. These people who burnt the police station are criminals who are breaking the law and need to be apprehended. It is as if the country does not have a functioning police. This is what happens when the police becomes the puppet of the ruling political party. They stop barking until they are told by the puppet master to bark.
