United Transformation Movement (UTM) President Saulos Chilima has cautioned Malawi Police Service (MPS) to stop threatening Malawians who are exercising their rights through demonstrations, saying the excess use of force by the law enforcers is uncalled for in democracy.

Chilima made the warning during a ‘thank you rally’ held at St. Augustine Primary school ground in Mangochi, on Sunday.

The past immediate vice president said he is worried that instead of sticking to their job of ensuring security, police officers are busy unleashing brutality on innocent Malawians.

Chilima further urged his supporters to keep participating in the demonstrations organized by the Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) calling for resignation of Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) Chairwoman, Jane Ansah.

He said there will be more demonstrations against Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) chairwoman Jane Ansah.

Some sections of the electoral stakeholders argue that Ansah and her commissioners failed to manage the May 21 Tripartite Elections which were marred by irregularities, including the use of Tippex to alter some results sheets.

“We will keep on demonstrating. If people have concerns, they are free to hold peaceful protests,” said Chilima.

Chilima stressed that people should exercise their right to demonstrate and not fear anything as the National Anthem states.
