(For immediate release :11th October,2019)
GOVERNMENT PATIENCE AND TOLERANCE SHOULD NOT BE TAKEN FOR GRANTED
Government has been constrained to bring to the attention of the public a matter of national importance that touches on the security of this country.
Government has information that the Human Rights Defenders Coalition (HRDC), the Malawi Congress Party (MCP) and the United Transformation Movement (UTM) have agreed to recruit thugs to implement a plan to burn markets across the country every week.
This plan, which was finally approved in Lilongwe on Tuesday this week at a meeting convened by HRDC, MCP and UTM, has been put in place in order to create chaos in the country and instill fear with the ultimate objective of making Malawi ungovernable.
One of those that have been assigned to coordinate this heinous plan left Lilongwe this morning for Blantyre where he is expected to meet others this evening for ultimate deployment of personnel and materials to the various districts in the Southern Region which is the first target.
Government wishes to assure the public not to panic because it will not allow this to happen. All security agencies are on top of things and those involved will be brought to book.
Government would like to warn the HRDC, MCP and UTM to stop their machinations of trying to usurp the Constitutional Order and to topple a legally constituted Government as doing so borders on treason.
Malawi should not be destroyed because of selfish individuals who will not stop at anything to fulfill their political agenda which has nothing to do with the interests of the people.
The country has witnessed incidents of violence since the outcome of the May
21, 2019 elections and Government’s peaceful reaction to such incidents
should not be taken for granted.
