Vigilant groups declares ‘war’ with DPP cadets over national IDs

Vigilant groups in Nkhata Bay have declared an all-out war with the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) notorious cadets whom the ruling party is sending to snatch national IDs from prospective voters.

Sanga: We are only getting those from DPP committees

Some leaders of the youthful vigilant groups in the district say they have now embarked on a hunt for the cadets whom they said are illegally collecting the national identity cards from vulnerable unsuspecting people in the district.

“The situation is worse at Mpamba but we will deal with them. We cannot fear the cadets just because they are in a ruling party. What they are doing is illegal,” said one of the vigilant groups.

He suspected the ruling party is collecting the national IDs to rig the 2019 highly contested elections.

Police spokesperson in Nkhata Bay Kondwani James refused to comment on the matter.

However, an emotional regional governor for the DPP in the north Kenneth Sanga said the party was merely identifying an electoral college for the party ahead of its primary polls which is expected to start in December.

“We are just getting 400 national IDs from each constituency from those who are in DPP committees who will form the electoral college during our primary elections,” he said.

He said the party will now use the national IDs as identification for its committee members who will form the electoral college.

The party says the primary elections will be held in secret ballot.

If DPP cadets continue to harass and beat people we won’t mind turning them into goats and cattle. Free distribution of goats and cattle could be restarted. At least this way they could be economically productive citizens of Malawi. Final warning.

And the two DPP stooges Jose and Ansah can’t see anything wrong with this criminal act being perpetrated by their beloved DPP. I simply can’t understand the kind of leadership we have at MEC and police. It’s simply stupid leadership. I repeat we have stupid leadership at mec and police.

But you don’t need to take their ids. You just check them on spot and return to owner on the spot. You don’t take them away. Something is fishy here.

As far as i know identification of an ID is done at the same point and place not taking the ID of someone away.How can you identify and ID or someone while he/she is not there?That is a criminal case by snatching some ones ID.Sanga’s statement is unjustifiable
