UN pushing Malawi to abolish death penalty


The United Nations (UN) has asked Malawi to abolish the death penalty saying it abuses human rights especially the right to life.

Since 1992 no execution has been carried out and the UN says this will put Malawi in good stead to abolish the death penalty.

Death hanging
Death penalty in Malawi wanted out.

UN representatives to Malawi say there is an alternative to death penalty which is life imprisonment.

The reps further said UN believes that the abolishment of the death penalty will help to harness the right to life everyone is entitled to.

Commenting on the issue Malawi Law Society general secretary Khumbo Soko stressed that there is a need for Malawi to decide whether to maintain or abolish the death penalty.

In 2007 the high court of Malawi abolished the mandatory death penalty but it was brought back following rampant incidences of killings in the country.

  5. United nations, is a source of satanism.Why do they want malawi to abolish the law that is protecting its citizens?.Do they want malawians to be vulnarable?.Do not brain storm us, you better leave us with our strong and tough laws that is providing a condusive environment in malawi in the sense that,people are scared to kill each other for fear of such laws.However,this organisation is been fooling many countries in Africa in the name of human rights to get rid of the dealth penalty as a result people are killing each other like goats in those countries without any law protecting them.Tell Botswana and China to abolish dealth penalty before Malawi.
