CSOs to report Malawi govt to UN, international bodies over ‘undemocratic events

0

Civil society leaders have threatened to report the Malawi government to the UN and other international human rights bodies because of the ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) resort to violence against its critics and other of undemocratic events.

Gift Trapence, executive director of Centre for the Development of People (CEDEP p confirmed the civil society orgaisations are putting together their case against the government.

Just this week, Lilongwe City deputy mayor Cecelia Kaduya was attacked  during a presidential function in Lilongwe allegedly because she switched her political affiliation from DPP to Malawi Congress Party (MCP).

The DPP also beat up MCP supporters and stripped them of their party clothes during John Chilembwe Day commemoration in Chiradzulu and beat up a member of the MCP at Kamuzu International Airport in Lilongwe.

Trapence said the situation is expected to worsen when the elections come closer.

He therefore said there was need to end the culture of impunity in the country.

But DPP spokesperson Francis Kasaila said this will not be the first time that CSOs have reported the government to international human rights bodies.

“We are not a violent party and it is not true we beat up and harass people. What the CSOs are doing is to destroy the country where they come from,” he said.
