Govt spending sleepless night over Mulanje, Thyolo land squabbles’


Malawi government has claimed that it is leaving no stone unturned in trying to end Thyolo and Mulanje land wrangles between the locals and tea estate owners.

The remarks follow comments by a social commentator Rafiq Hajat who faulted government for being negligent on the matter.

Kaliati: Claims govt is working.

In Malawi’s local newspaper, The Daily Time’s article, Hajat and the editors blamed government for not taking the matter seriously.

Reacting to the accusations, minister of information Patricia Kaliati said government is involving stakeholders on the matter.

In a statement released on Thursday, Kaliati disagreed with Hajat that government has failed to resolve the issue.

“Government, however, disagrees with Mr Hajat and the editors of the Daily Times in their assertion that Government is doing nothing about the matter. Seemingly unbeknown to Mr Hajat and the editors of the Daily Times, but certainly known to the traditional leaders of Mulanje and Thyolo, the other civic leaders of both Mulanje and Thyolo, as well as all leaders and members of the People’s Land Organisation, Government is fully engaged in this matter and is committed to finding a durable solution to the problem,” reads part of the statement.

The statement further warned Vincent Wandale, a man who recently declared Thyolo and Mulanje independent states that he risks being charged with treason.

The people of Mulanje and Thyolo have been complaining about land issues arguing that white farmers in these two districts snatched land from their forefathers without compensation.

Citizens from the two districts have been calling for government to resolve the matter.
