Exclusive information that Malawi24 has indicates that the party has been meeting secretly to plot evil machinations for its critics and people who would like to lead the country to demand answers from the regime.

The information we have says that the party had a meeting after President Mutharika returned. At the meeting it was discussed that there was a feeling of discontent among Malawians.

A source said that one of the possible outcomes that was discussed was that with the discontent there might be a demonstration.

“The party feels that there is a sense of anger against the party,” the source said. “We are aware that people are not happy with the recent reforms, we also know that the issue of the UN delegation has made many people angry. It was suggested that we should be preparing for street protests which might happen if nothing is done to stop them.”

The source who was part of the meeting said that it was agreed at the meeting that the party should start diffusing the demonstration before any CSO leader has made it gather momentum.

“Prevention is better than cure, it was agreed that we should fight off the spirit of demonstration long before it comes to gather momentum,” the source said.

According to the information from other independent sources, the party agreed that its members of Parliament should start holding meetings with students to talk to them against demonstrating when anybody calls on them to discuss.

“Students are aggrieved and they have been known to be in the forefront of demonstrating, we agreed that in constituencies where this has been witnessed, the MPs should talk with the students at this time before it gathers momentum,” said another source.

Meanwhile Malawi24 established that another way of curbing the demonstration is not civil as it involves mafia tactics.

A source told Malawi24 that the party wants to target demonstration organisers and kill them. He said they will be involved in mysterious accidents that will leave no trace.

“Everybody knows the roads of Malawi are known for accidents, if we get them to end on the road then we will be cleared of any wrongdoing,” he said to Malawi24.

Meanwhile Malawi24 understands that some MPs in Blantyre have already started meeting students in schools where they are talking with them about demonstrations.
