Malawi Army locks up HRDC’s demo lorries

LILONGWE-(MaraviPost)-Security was tight and vehicles were searched as police confiscated crude weapons of catapults, stones, panga knives and axes. Every vehicle going into Lilongwe was thoroughly searched.

The Maravi Post understands that impounded fourteen lorries have been locked up at Kamuzu Barracks.

They were found to be not road worthy and carrying people without permission.

The police and Malawi Defence Force had mounted road blocks at strategic places in Lilongwe where every passing vehicle was searched. Such strategic places included Kanengo, Africa Bible College and Njewa on Lilongwe-Mchinji Road.

HRDC Chairperson Timothy Mtambo and his Msundwe team went back home literally walking as their vehicles were impounded and parked at Kamuzu Barracks in Lilongwe.

In Blantyre, a vehicle belonging to HRDC caught fire forcing officials to walk back home.

The protests were poorly patronized in all the three cities. The organizers had imagined three million marchers but it was only a handful protestors that turned up.

The demonstrations were organized to force the Anti Corruption Bureau to disclose names of people said to have approached two judges in the presidential case with bribes.

Last week Thursday, HRDC was attacked for using minors in its anti-government demonstrations. Police arrested 13 minors in last week’s protests with the majority coming from Lilongwe.
