Waves of violence mar voter registration exercise as DPP complains to MEC

Waves of bloody violence have erupted in some areas triggering fears this could mar the ongoing voter registration exercise.

Monitor for opposition UTM hacked in Mulanje

In Dowa, ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) monitors were beaten up and the party district governor was injured by suspected Malawi Congress Party (MCP) assailants.

This happened on Saturday on Dowa central after some people, believed to be DPP members, went to a registration centre and told all DPP supporters to withdraw.

MCP supporters suspected that the ruling party was withdrawing its monitors in preparation for an attack on the registration centres.

The suspected MCP followers then descended on the DPP monitors, beating them and extensively damaged the vehicle.

UTM party has also condemned the beating of its monitors on Friday in Thyolo, Phalombe and Mulanje districts during the second phase of the voter registration exercise.

The party is requesting Malawi Police Service to deploy its officers to registration centres for security.

UTM says the withdrawal of police officers has given chance to other people to disrupt the registration exercise.

Stop the war. Malawi should always be one and inclusive. Tribalism has no future in Malawi. Some one could easily end up in Hague at International Criminal Court for war crimes. Peace be with you.

Sometimes tit for tat is a fair game. MCP has caused too much havoc in the centre since last year after elections. The South was quite. Now that the South is reteriating the opposition is crying. The opposition is just reaping what they are sowing in their stronghold of Nyau belt.

Blood is on MCP regalia, without blood it can cease to be MCP. When you see MCP you see bloodshed. MCP has never changed and will never Change. Throughout the democratic err in Malawi, MCP has only managed to achieve bloodshed. This Party will never rule Malawi again. No reasonable Malawian can vote for MCP. In short MCP is Ng’ona party.

I am a reasonable Malawian. Far much better than you but I will vote for MCP. Thugs are in DPP. They were ruining MCP. Check at Dausi, Ntaba and many others who are holding high positiions in DPP. Time will tell and you will see while you are living.

Malawians when it comes to freedom it is not up to date, this shows that the country and its people is far from civillased , ihave seen country like South Africa they practice their freedom very comfortably even when it come to voting people can wear clothes of their party they represent peacefully no threatening of each other, no body has the right to confront with ones rights, no intervation in that regard, but Malawian we are always too much jealous of one another, why can’t we learn from others please .
