We have been reading UN complaints about Eritrea, the Gambia, Zimbabwe and a lot other African countries. We finally got one ourselves just last week. There was a case, one Ken Msonda voiced out his opinion against homosexuality. (Homosexuality is a crime in Malawi, and we all support the law, except a handful of activists). Two sell-out organizations sued him for inciting violence. 24 hours before the hearing however, the case was discontinued by government prosecutors. (How thoughtful of the government).
The UN is now baying for Nsonda’s blood. The blood of our legal framework. It is coercing us once again to get Msonda behind bars. His crime? Hatred towards crime: homosexuality. See the irony? UN hypocrisy. This has left Malawians wondering what the UN stands for. Anarchy. Bulldozing of western ideas on nations that haven’t expelled the slave mentality. Even more pathetic are the vehicles carrying this devilry. Timothy Mtambo and Gift Trapence’s organizations have done more harm than good to the country. (The only good being the ends-meet they make from their human rights noise).
CEDEP and the HRCC are a perfect example of backstabbers. They’ve been used to push for alien ideas that are not in line with the interest of Malawians except the homosexual criminals themselves. We saw how these same organizations worked against the late Bingu wa Mutharika at a time Malawi was destined to some paradise. Until we were all tricked into killing our Ngwazi. Bingu was clever enough to open our eyes. He told us imperialists don’t rejoice when we develop. They would rather have us as perpetual tramps. That’s why when they have no excuse, they will invent lies about evil, masking it in human rights. With Mtambo and Trapence as intermediaries.
This is why some local CSOs must be barred. They are a hand to the neo-colonizers in pulling Malawi down. We can do much better as a country without CEDEP and HRCC. (Once again, the only good thing these two organizations have done is to help its employees make ends meet. Nothing else). Because the issues they are pursuing are non-issues. But they want to put us at loggerheads with their imperialist father: United Nations. Because they think we can’t do without the west. Our resilience against this homosexual idiocy has however raised Pan-African hopes. It appears the question of aid is fast becoming a non-issue too. We must radicalize this thinking before CEDEP and HRCC works a way out. It must start with death to the two organizations, and all other groups rallying behind the two. Human rights organizations have failed independence. The west’s version of human rights is off track. You can’t label an abnormality a right and start threatening sane societies to adopt it. Not even when the west itself still argues over its legalization.
I have also been disappointed by the Malawi Law Society. A grouping of lawyers, most of them educated by our very government (read tax), rising against the country’s values? I expected them to be the last in abandoning the struggle to defend our sovereignty. They should have been asking government to explain why those two gays were released when they had committed a crime instead of waiting for Msonda to lash out at the gay criminals. Maybe because we are too penniless to feed their pockets. That mentality isn’t good for Malawi’s development. They should be ashamed of themselves. I know it can’t be all MLS members. They too must be victims of bulldozing authorities. Otherwise, its membership is too intelligent to hold hands with homosexuals.
(Remember I don’t buy the moratorium lie because it’s been proved a farce: Joyce Banda signed without presenting the matter to parliament. And to think that the UN relies on that illegal signing makes me mad at those who turn to the UN on human rights and the rule of law).
The problem with Malawi is we are taking this human rights palaver too far. It’s all a hoax. We are selling our sovereignty to the very beasts that enslaved us for centuries. We are giving them space to re-enslave us. Have you even noticed how selective UN’s applicability of justice is? Imagine all the atrocities being committed by the superpowers world over, and all the UN’s human rights branch does is express concern over state of affairs in Malawi simply because we are following our constitution.
The UN is UNjust. More unjust however are the backstabbers we are harbouring in the country. This is why we must rid ourselves of these traitors. They are a barrier to the development of Malawi. We must unite and voice out our concern against the exploits of CEDEP and HRCC. These organizations must be banned if we are to register any meaningful progress. Let us join hands in speaking out against all elements standing in our sovereignty’s way. Mtambo and Trapence must find something else to do; otherwise this path they took is harming the nation.
