“All parties concerned shall duly communicate these resolutions to everyone involved in the implementation of the planned demonstrations and that these resolutions shall be binding to all parties concerned,” reads part of the statement.

  4. I thought you will be demanding electricity? We have the ATI law so why asking for transparency? You fools, there are more important issues that you must ask for. I am not a partisan but a Malawian and I could have supported you if you were asking for the removal of the ESCOM chief Executive Officer and ESCOM chief engineer.
