Demonstrations organized by the NGO Gender Coordination Network against Malawi police officers suspected to have raped women in Msundwe, are underway in Lilongwe.
The march has started from Kamuzu Central Roundabout, heading all the way to Civic offices at City Centre.
The march is in solidarity with Msundwe women who were allegedly harassed by police personnel few weeks ago.
The women are marching under the banner of Women Manifesto Movement.
Several women were raped by suspected police officers who raided Msundwe, M’bwatalika to revenge the death of the police officers killed by the villagers.
The angry community blocked the Lilongwe Mchinji road in protest against President Professor Arthur Peter Mutharika’s rally in Lilongwe.
Police officers were deployed to the area to control the situation but things went wrong resulting to the death of Imedi, a police officer who was stoned to death.
