The Malawi Congress Party (MCP) is calling on its supporters across the country to desist from acts of violence as results for the presidential election are yet to be announced.
MCP secretary general Eisenhower Mkaka said this in an interview with Nation Online on Sunday following condemnation by the Malawi Human Rights Commission ((MHRC) on acts of violence being perpetrated by alleged MCP supporters.
MHRC executive secretary David Nungu in a statement made available to us has condemned the acts of violence by the purported supporters in parts of Lilongwe and Dowa districts.
But Mkaka has urged their supporters to refrain from the acts of violence saying they should wait for the court’s determination this afternoon on the issue.
Said Mkaka: “Wherever they are, they need to be patient and give judicial action a chance. We believe that in the final analysis, justice will prevail.”
On Saturday, alleged supporters of MCP are said to have burned a DPP office in Dowa while earlier that day, others were seen marching in the streets of Lilongwe.
