Catholic’s Archbishop Msusa Calls For End To Demos

Arch-Bishop Msusa and Chilima

Head of the Catholic Church in Malawi Archbishop Thomas Msusa has called for immediate end to the ongoing anti government demonstrations organised by Human Rights Defenders Coalition.

Msusa who is also Archbishop for Blantyre Archdiocese, has described as irresponsible and unpatriotic and as sheep that have lost direction, those organising the destructive protests.

Msusa said this during ordination of four priests at Limbe Cathedral on Saturday.

He said while it is constitutional right for people to demonstrate, it is not their right to kill others, damage and steal property in the name of protests.

He condemned the organizers and opposition leaders for encouraging their supporters to go to streets and burn tyres, block roads and burn people’s houses.

” We do not want to see these demonstrations again. We want our peaceful Malawi to come back,” said Msusa.

HRDC led by Timothy Mtambo and Gift Trapence has been organising demonstrations demanding resignation of Malawi Electoral Commission Chairperson Justice Jane Ansah alleging that her commission mismanaged the May 21 elections.

Opposition political parties especially Malawi Congress Party and United Transformation Movement have been backing the anti government protests.

Ironically, UTM leader Saulos Chilima, who was Malawi’s vice president, is Msusa’s boy.

    Well Msusa apparently is more sensible that Chilima!!! I agree with the religious man! we don’t want to see this anarchy in Malawi again! Fancy people dying because of this selfish behaviour form these pseudo politicians!!

    Chilima and Chakwera are very selfish people who are destructive and they have proved beyond doubt that they are not fit to lead Malawi!!!

    Don’t tell people to stop their rights to demonstrate peacefully. If stops politicians in this country will continue taking Malawians for granted. Every vote should be counted for in order to put a real winner on position not via rigging that’s primitive and dangerous to the nation.

    Yes indeed! demonstrate! but don’t destroy! how does killing people! beating people! destroying private and public property! how does all that bring about termination of rigging? There are ways! One is not opposed to forcing the truth out but one is severely against selfish leaders who masquerade as rights activists by using the population to destroy what little the nation has got!! I agree with you rigging is dangerous! Primitive! It should be condemned in severest possible way !but anarchy is completely unacceptable and it should be condemned even louder!!!! Political Leaders have the responsibility to make sure that Malawi is not destroyed by their members who take their instructions from their Leaders!!!
