Mayaya says DPP cadets used stones, an iron bar in assaulting him (see photos)


Member of the Human Right Defenders Coalition (HRDC) Billy Mayaya has confirmed of his attack by Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) cadets in the commercial capital Blantyre.

HRDC organized demonstrations in Blantyre aimed at forcing Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) Chairperson Jane Ansah to resign for failing to manage the May 21 tripartite election.

The demonstrations started on very well at Kamuzu Upper Stadium but upon reaching Chichiri Trade Fair Grounds the protesters crashed with DPP supporters.

The two sides started pelting stones at each other and DPP supported later pounced on Mayaya hacking him in the head in the process.

He was later rushed to Queen Elizabeth Central Hospital for treatment.

Mayaya confirmed of the development in a statement posted on his official facebook page seen by faceofmalawi reporter.

“After being attacked with stones and an iron bar,” wrote Mayaya.
