As the rate of COVID-19 cases increase at an alarming pace, people are looking back at what transpired as many resisted government measures to control the pandemic. Amongst those that fought government was HRDC led by Gift Trapence and supported by Lazarus Chakwera and Saulos Chilima.

The HRDC was the face of the Malawi resistance, but behind it were the evil and ambitions of Lazarus Chakwera who used them to resist any government undertakings including the fight against COVID-19.

Writing about this Atupele Muluzi said, Gift Trapence and his colleagues have put Malawian’s life at risk by going to court against lockdown. 

Now we have a serious upsurge in COVID-19 cases which the lockdown wanted to prevent. 

This will take away one fundamental right to some which is the right to life. However, you have noticed he chooses to play the devil’s advocate all the time, but there is a much bigger cost coming his way.

 When Malawian’s start dying of COVID-19 they shall remember the men and women who exposed them to this pandemic.  I struggle to figure out if this will not be genocide – the events of the past have shown the disregard for destruction in your endeavor to be relevant.

  Everyone should be held accountable for their actions and that does not make you an exemption.  The new government has preached of justice, but I think the first thing on the agenda should be election violence followed by COVID-19.

We should not choose to look the other side when the script fits us.
