Share news to your friends

President Lazarus Chakwera’s alleged failure to fix the country’s fragile economy, forex and electricity crises and a crackdown on media freedom are some of the issues that are attracting another set of anti-government protests slated for October 12.

Social Revolution Movement, Pastors Fraternity and a group under the banner, Concerned Citizens have told journalists in Lilongwe this morning that Chakwera must also address issues on reports of stolen allowances for Malawi Defense Force soldiers.

The Movement’s leader, Phunziro Mvula further reveals they will have no option than force Chakwera to resign if he cannot address these challenges.

One of the concerned citizens, Steve Chimwaza has also lamented what he describes as government’s deliberate crackdown on critical media.

He argues it is sad that government is using MACRA to silence media houses; eventually creating job losses.

This comes as another grouping, Human Rights Ambassadors is seeking court intervention on their planned demos this Wednesday.

A few weeks ago, President Chakwera met some civil society leaders at Kamuzu Palace in Lilongwe who pledged to be engaging his government before protesting in the streets.

Previously, National Unity Minister, Timothy Mtambo stressed the Chakwera administration was not against demos but was only encouraging honest engagements for the betterment of the country.
