7

Three people are in the hands of Malawi Police officers in connection with the violence that took place in Mzuzu over the weekend.

During a joint rally held by opposition parties, the Malawi Congress Party (MCP), Peoples Party (PP) and the Alliance for Democracy (Aford) at Chibavi Ground met a nightmare with armed youthful looking men causing mayhem at the event.

MCP Attacks

A smashed vehicle at the ground.

Among other things the rally ended abruptly with atleast four people falling as serious casulties after they got hacked by the panga knives the attackers had.

According to reports, police in the Northern Region city have arrested George Mwamutope, Lumbadzi Munthali and Frank Simwaka in line with the attacks.

It remains sketchy on what led to the fracas with some reports saying the attackers were sent by the Democratic Progress Party (DPP) to disturb the rally and others citing that it was a PP faction that is against the ‘relationship’ with the other two parties.

On Monday, the MCP railed at police for not arriving at the scene to provide security and also for being mum on the issue 24 hours later.

The attacks have been heavily condemned.

Mwamutope, 36 hails from Mwangulukulu village , T/A Kilipula in Karonga  district while Munthali, 29 comes from of Mature village  T/A Chikulamayembe , Rumphi district and  Simwaka Kashololo, 30 is from Malema vge , T/A Kyungu in Karonga District.

PROPHET BUSHIRI WILL BE THE PRESIDENT OF MALAWI (GODS CALLING) Following the channel of presidency in malawi Many leaders who call themselves opposition has done nothing than only uttering words Looking at economic crisis affecting malawians Nothing so called tangible measures has been put in place to eradicate this Minus the infamous cashgate the DPP administration has failed malawians Why cant peter muthalika administration pump in other donors than depending on old relationship I believe the agreement kamuzu and other former leaders made with donors from britain isnt the same mutual relationship today If donors loves malawians, why can they withdraw their aids People are dying and things are worse and why cant those donors come and pump in their aid to rescue malawians? Peter muthalika wasnt in power the time infamous cashgate was happening and why do donors choose to punish malawians through peter muthalika administration It simply means donors communication between peter muthalikas administration is no longer there Donors hate muthalikas administration and not malawians If anaza president is voted into power today ….believe me you will see a lot of donors and this calamities will end During bingu wa muthalika end era donors withdraw their support also,,, a lot of calamities were there After joyce banda success a change was there within seconds To the the fact I dont see anyone from any party either in power or in opposition who can stand as president in the next election Their CVs are worse than dogs Bakili was a hero, he picked someone neither from the party nor from the opposition Because he knew that both donors and malawians lost their hope in fuctional paties Come 2009 he won and the country changed and all Malawians danced in joy All professors failled us and its high time we think of men of GOD A man WITH A NNOITING POWER BREAK THROUGH HEALLING PROPHECY MIRACLES A PROPHET MUST LEAD THE COUNTRY not self claim man of GOD PROPHET SHERPERD BUSHIRI IS A CHARISMATIC LEADER FULL OF VISION, AND HE MUST LEAD MALAWI THROUGH GOD POWER MEN OF GOD MUST TAKE THE COUNTRY AND LET GODS BLESSINGS BE UPON US HE HAS INBORN LEADERSHIP SAY BUSHIRI MUST BE OUR LEADER…….
