Desperation Times Expose Fake Press Briefing In The Name Of UTM Youths, Speakers Beaten Up
A fake press briefing by hired speakers at Lilongwe LEA School has ended up in chaos after UTM supporters stormed the venue and in the process beating up speakers and organisers.
Malawi Freedom Network (MFN) understands that, through the briefing, the fake speakers wanted to ask Human Rights Defenders Coalition (HRDC) to discontinue with their plans of holding vigils at the country’s boarders and airports.
MFN can also confirm that some of the reporters that availed themselves at the fake activity were harrased by the irate UTM supporters.
When contacted, UTM Party Publicity Secretary, Joseph Chidanti-Malunga said the purported youths were not sent by his party to hold the presser.
