APM frees 378 inmates


President Peter Mutharika has pardoned 378 prisoners as part of celebrating Malawi’s 53rd year of independence.

According to a statement issued by Ministry of Home Affairs and Internal Security and signed by its Principal Secretary Samuel Madula, many of the pardoned inmates are those with trivial cases.

“The prisoners who have been pardoned are those with minor offences and have demonstrated good behavioural reforms or are chronically ill,” reads the statement.

Government has in the statement said the pardoning of the inmates is a sign of forgiveness as the country has clocked its 53rd year of independence.

“The pardon of the 378 prisoners by His Excellency the President is a symbol of forgiveness during this year’s Republic Celebrations,” reads part of the statement.

On Independence Day, there were multi-denominational prayers to thank God for the good past growing season.

However, it also turned out to be a day of mourning after eight people died during a stampede at Bingu National Stadium (BNS) when they were jostling to enter the stadium to watch Independence Day activities.

The tragic incident also saw over 40 Malawians injured.
