The Tonse administration is accusing organisers of anti-government protests of commercialising the demos for personal gains.

This is in reaction to a series of protests that started on Thursday in Blantyre and Zomba, then Lilongwe to force President Lazarus Chakwera to resign.

The national protests are organised by a contingent of civil rights groups and the Mzuzu event will take place on Wednesday next week.

The rights groups want Chakwera to resign for allegedly failing to deal with rampant corruption in his administration as well as the rising cost of living.

The Blantyre and Zomba demos were held in a peaceful manner but the Lilongwe demos turned into chaos yesterday.

This happened after organisers were denied their wish to present the petition at Kamuzu palace, leading to the arrest of 33 people.

The 33 include lead organiser and social media influencer Joshua Chisa Mbele who are accusing of inciting violence.

Speaking to the state controlled MBC, government spokesperson Gospel Kazako questioned the objectives of the demos.

Kazako has stated that as government they want Civil Society Organisations that are genuine and not those that are getting paid to do demonstrations.
