Malawi Congress Party (MCP) President Dr. Lazarus Chakwera has expressed shock over the move by the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) government to forcibly transfer police officer from State House to remote areas for simply coming from Central and Northern Region.
Chakwera expressed the sadness during a media briefing held on Friday at MCP headquarters in the capital Lilongwe.
“Still, I am aware that the DPP’s illegal ascension to the presidency has already started to inflict suffering on innocent Malawians.
“As I speak, dozens of civil servants, soldiers, and police officers are being unceremoniously transferred fromurban areas to the remotest rural areas for simply supporting MCP or for coming from regions where most people voted for MCP,” said Chakwera.
He added: “In addition, dozens of young people in the Central Region have recently been arrested and MCP offices have been raided and teargassed without provocation by cadets masquerading as police officers. These are the lawless acts of a mafia state, and it is imperative that we end this state capture by thieves in order to end these abuses and ensure that those committing them face the law.
“In the meantime, if you know someone who has been unjustly transferred, beaten, or arrested, please support them.”
Meanwhile Chakwera has urged Malawians to standup for the truth.
