VIDEO: Police beat Chanco students

168

A video clip that Malawi24 has in possession has revealed just one the ways Malawi Police officers have failed to reform and are still using outdated and violent tactics in emergency situations.

In the recent protests at the Chancellor College in Zomba city, police were involved in a cat and mouse chase with the students.

However after the students blocked the road, Police invaded Campus where they started firing teargas.

Malawi Police Officers beat up Girls at Chancellor College

In the viral video clip, police officers are shown beating up two girls who were already crying.

The video shows the Campus deserted and the Police chasing someone whom they have smoked out in one of the rooms. The two girls who are visibly shaken are only surrounded by Police Officers.

The girls can be heard asking for mercy from the police officers but instead they get slaps and abuse.

Malawi24 understands that one of the police officers was shooting the ordeal on his mobile phone.

‘’Aise upange delete tu zimenezo,’’ one of the police officers who was in front of the camera said to the one shooting the video, telling him to delete the video as soon as possible.

But at the moment, the video has been leaked and has openly revealed how the law enforcers are brutal when they net people.

The incident is being condemned on the social media. Police are yet to reply to our calls on this matter. The girls are part of the arrested others who are now on bail.

The students were protesting against the recent fee hike and the stand by the University Council not to reverse the decision.

  3. The problem is dat we look at one side, had it been it was a student beating a police officer anthu even amabungwe they remain silent , so are u trying to say them are not human beings prone to agony? go to their armouries they dont keep stones but teargas, bullets and grenades so how do u expect them to retaliate with stones to student who are also using stones? no way!! MABUNGWE musamaone mbali imodzi if u are indeed there to defend human rights…am out!!!?

  4. Some people are so stupid how can you beat the students how many of you can manage to pay that school fees? Do you have children or not you must think some times when you do things let’s us support the students, think about the poor people, those people they support this they work in the government and they still money from the government, we are sick and tired of mtalika family

  22. kukhala graduate komanso wapolice , apa sipowonetsa kut ndiwe ophunzira ayi, dziko mumakhala anthu ophunzira ena osaphunzira kumene. Vuto ngat anthu osaphunzira amakadya kwanu ophunzirawe. Komanso ngat iweyo ophunzirawe ukafa izakuuyike ndi degree yakoyo. magraduate sakumba mandatu aphwanga ambiri ndiozikonda. Kumwambanso sazayang’ana degree.

    • Anthu amangoyankhula popeza ndi pa fb awa, ngat ali ndi nzeru zokwanira apite poyera ndikuwauza apolice kapena asilikali ndikuwauza kuti ndinu mbuli anthu osaphunzira

  24. Apolisi ambiri ndi mbuli thats it. Akudziwa kuti olo mwana wawo azakharanso mulonda ngati iwowo. Ndiye kuwamenya ana ku UNIMA kwaiwo simvuto ntchito kuwabera anthu basi.

  25. Some times we use violence to control violence so apolicewo sangagwilitse ntendele pothesa ziwawa big up Malawi police! !

    • Are u telling me if someone comitt murder do u kil him also. That why u must be wel trained to deal with matter like this. They are alternative way to handle riots. But beating protesters is a way of destructing the agenda.

    • No u have to know those students were stone on police officers so it was not easy to stop them even around the world you can agree with me that all police officers use the same way but the problem is most people we need police to be hamble so we can do whatever we need without stopped

    • Brava don’t just speak from an ignorance point of view … watch the video and say what violence the girl was doing … Infact an illegal demonstration is not synonymous with a violent protest… Chanco students were demonstrating not rioting … Get your facts right

    • I DOWNLOADED IT HERE ON FB AND I HAVE SEEN TWO POLICEMEN AND TWO GIRLS, THE OTHER GIRL WAS CRYING THEN ONE POLICEMAN ASKED HER TO STOP CRYING THEREBY SLAPPING HER THEN THE GIRLS WERE TOLD TO SIT DOWN (SOME SORT OF TEASING) .REALLY IT DID NOT PLEASE ME.

  26. Ubwino wake muufumu wakumwamba sazaona sukulu koma tchito zanthu,izi mukuti zophuzira izi ndizapasi pompano kwa mulungu kulibe sankho.

    • Kaya tiyenazoni,mukungokangana apa vuto sima student or apolice,ozikonda ndokweza feeswo , dont they know that we are poor?aliyense akuzimenyera nkhondo apa malinga ndudindo wake

  28. Inu amene mukuti a police ndiosaphunzira mumangoonetsa imbuli wanu.How many graduates are in the service?The minimum qualification for police entrance is MSCE so too is any other gov org.You can only understand police when you join police. Ophunziranu mutapita ku police mukakhalanso chimodzimodzi. It is they nature of the job baba.And even in America do the same

    • Apolisi ambiri ndi mbuli iwe ukukana chana amangochoka uko ndi ma40pts awowo wakucamp kamba koti chambuyawo alikomweko. Nanga kuwamenya atsikana pali mzeru pamenepo zimenezo ndizomwe munaphunzira makape inu mbava.

    • Iwe ndiwe waonetsa kuti ndiwe mbuli yaikulu. Ok let me tel u this. If u go to Univesity and graduate a field that can work with security eg Cadet. When u start to work u dont start as a constable. But warranty officer going up. All those who start as constable don’t have diploma or degree in security studies. Ena akufera pauconstable. Ngati ndiwe wapolice what does AK 47 means and FA. U might not explain properly. Being a police does not mean u are iron. U are a human being like me. So stop fuckn around.

    • A Police apa Malawi amangothamangira zoiphaiphatu bolaso G4S..mkaz nde kpezezerera pomwe amuna anzanu kukuthyolerani mfuti sikupepera kumeneko
      Ndalama dziko la Britain nde kawononga kukuphunzitsa kut mukhale Reformed koma aaaahhh amgung’ ung’ u enieni mbuli

    • “Even in America they do the same….” akutero akuluwa which to me proves that you are one of those people who can do everything as far as the American people are doing it.u r mad.still thinking a white man is your toch bearer in every aspect of life activity.U need to be snared .a police aku malawi ndi mbuzi zimathamangira kumenya anthu even if anthuwo sangabwezere.zoona angamamenye the needy students? Where is meritocracy there? Angamathire tear gas ku room kwa anthu oti they are less capable? Fodyatu ameneyo.Let me help u in this way…u cannot be hailed as the only strong if all the people you hit didnt hit you back.u become the strong if they hit you back and very hard but you still survive their punches then we can crown you a strong body.osat kumenya akazi uko ankangolira osakubwezerani inu basi muli ndinu ma duli..kupepera kumeneko.usawi chichi
