Women activist tells protesters to avoid slurs during anti-Ansah demos

A women’s activist has advised anti-Jane Ansah protesters to avoid slurs and use of foul language against the Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) embattled chairperson.

Emma Kaliya said it was not good for the protesters to insult the disgraced Supreme Court judge, saying they should just stick to peacefully protests and not  mouth-fouling her.

“It is their Constitutional right to peacefully march against the MEC chairperson but they should not insult her modesty,” said Kaliya.

The anti-Jane Ansah protests enters fourth week on Tuesday as Human Rights Defenders Coalition (HRDC) wants Ansah step down following allegations that MEC manipulated the presidential poll result in favour of President Peter Mutharika, an allegation Ansah, MEC and Mutharika deny.

A member of HRDC Beatrice Mateyu said the civil rights activisist discourage insults or use of foul language against Ansah.

MEC declared Mutharika of Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) winner of the presidential race in the May 21 Tripartite Elections, with 1 940 709 votes. He was trailed by Malawi Congress Party (MCP)  president Lazarus Chakwera with 1 781 740 votes.

HRDC with support from MCP and UTM Party have been holding countrywide demonstrations to force  Ansah to resign from her position as MEC chair for messing the May 21 2019 elections.

Ansah is accused of fraudulently gifting DPP presidential candidate Peter Mutharika victory in the Presidential Election.

UTM Party president Saulos Chilima and Chakwera have since filed a petition in court, seeking nullification of the results over alleged irregularities.

The Malawi Law Society (MLS) has since asked Ansah to “deeply reflect on the value of remaining in office when her stay seems to be the cause for social disruption and political unrest”.

But Ansah has unequivocally stated that she will not resign unless the court rules that there were irregularities in the elections.

On their part, CSOs led by the HRDC have also vowed never to relent until Ansah throws in the towel.

Levels of anger are different and organizers cannot control such, that is why we need police to take charge, unfortunately they cannot because we now know their stand.

Emma Kaliya, I personnally do respect and trust you, but with this, you have betrayed and lost my respect and trust. Is it not equally fair for you to tell and advise the illegitimate tippex president these very same piece and words of advice? It appears to me that the tippex president goes out to hold rallies without any prepared speech but just to throw slurs, insults, abusive words and to spite at the HRDC, MCP and UTM as well as the protesters. It would therefore, be fair, wise and proper for you to say the same to Peter first… Read more »

Anything goes in a demonstration. If you want to safeguard your modesty and dignity, do not blatantly use tippex and counterfeit ballots in an election. RESIGN or EXIT THE STAGE NOW.
