Mutharika speaks out on the torching of UTM vehicles


President Professor Arthur Peter Mutharika has condemned the political violent that happened in Mangochi last Saturday where two vehicles belonging to United Transformation Movement (UTM) were petrol bombed by unknown thugs.

Mutharika said this in a press statement released on Tuesday signed by Presidential Press Officer Mgeme Kalilani made available to faceofmalawi.

According to the statement, Mutharika is deeply shocked with the political violence that happened in Mangochi.

“The President condemns the incidents as they go against the spirit of democracy in Malawi.

“As one of Malawians who took part in the drafting of the Constitution which guarantees democratic rights of Malawians today, President Mutharika believes in and advocates for tolerance among Malawians of different political divides,” said Mutharika.

Added Mgeme: “The President therefore condemns any acts that infringes on people’s democratic rights and narrow the space for democratic growth in Malawi.

“Prof. Mutharika is urging all Malawians to demonstrate that democracy is maturing in Malawi by ensuring peaceful co-existence as the nation heads to the poll.”

Mutharika has since asked the police to investigate the Mangochi incident and bring perpetrators to book.
