Mayaya – Anti-Mutharika protests on the way

LILONGWE (Malawi NewsNow) –Civil Society Organizations (CSO’s) have warned that they are planning to hold peaceful mass protests over the failed state of the Malawi’s democratic and socio-economic governance in the country.

Human Rights Defenders Forum member, Mr Billy Mayaya told journalists in the capital Lilongwe on Wednesday that the CSO’s have been receiving pressure from the public asking to lead them to the streets to protest against the current social, political and economic challenges they are facing.

“People have witnessed with alarm large-scale challenges such as water shortages, electricity challenges, ills in the education and health sectors and a cloud of uncertainty over Farm Input Subsidy Program (FISP) in the Agriculture sector among others,” he said

He urged government to quickly resolve the issues before the public lose their tempers and take the streets to protest, he said.
