Gender activists are today expected to hold a protest march against the Nsundwe sexual violence scandal which implicates police officers.
The activists include the NGO Gender Coordination Network, Women Lawyers Association of Malawi, Women Manifesto Movement and Womenâ€™s Legal Resources Centre.
Women and girls were allegedly sexually abused in Nsundwe, Mpingu and Mâ€™bwatalika in Lilongwe earlier this month.
The issue has since attracted widespread condemnation from both local and international activists.
On October 9 police officers raided Msundwe and surrounding areas to maintain peace and order following riots that erupted on October 8 as angry locals were against Peter Mutharika’s plans to hold a rally in the areas which resulted into the death of a police officer.
