False hopes as embattled HRDC dodges anti-Chakwera demos

LILOLILONGWE-(MaraviPost)-The embattled Human Rights Defenders Coalition (HRDC) gave Malawians false hopes that would go to street if President Lazarus Chakwera’s Tonse Alliance government fail to fix ailing economy within a month.

Contrary to demos promises despite economic mess, HRDC has shifted to a later date demonstrations scheduled for December 7, 2022.

The grouping says has given government a probation to fix social economic and governance challenges the country is facing.

The organization justified the decision after noting that some concerns are being addressed by government citing an improvement in fuel availability which was one of the key concerns.

However, HRDC has made fresh demands to Chakwera to reshuffle his Cabinet and remove non performing ministers, suspend Secretary to the office of President and Cabinet Colleen Zamba until she is cleared from the allegations made by former acting chief executive officer of National Oil Company of Malawi Helen Buluma against Zamba.

HRDC officials led by chairperson Gift Trapense are addressing the media in Lilongwe.

The human rights group last month gave government a 21 day ultimatum to address challenges such as fuel scarcity and the mess surrounding AIP implementation this year.

HRDC supported Chakwera against former governing Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) to be out of power through volatile demos and presidential elections case in 2020.
