A UK paper the Telegraph is using Harry’s visit to Malawi to promote views of the Malawi opposition namely in the name of MacDonald Sembereka, a clergyman who has led a series of protests demanding the resignation of electoral officials.

However, the British should realise Malawians are mature enough to resolve their own internal issues. We no longer need the UK government or the British Monarch to solve our internal differences.

Part of the incorrect analysis reads:

In the months since the vote, mood in the country has become increasingly febrile, with group called the Human Rights Defender Coalition leading street protests demanding the resignation of Jane Ansah, the chair of the electoral commission and the government deploying troops to quell unrest.

That definitely is not true. Many Malawians are souring on the violence and destruction the demos have caused. The Demonstrators have lost the support of the Malawi Military and early on the support of the Police. International observers have declared the Election fair and see Mutharika as the winner as declared by MEC.
