As the country awaits the presidential election case ruling in the Constitutional Court, Government would like to assure the public that there is going to be peace and calm, law and order before, during and after the judgment.
Government is aware that this ruling will attract different reactions. As such, State Security Organs are well prepared to keep the peace that the country has safeguarded and enjoyed for many years.
Government urges all political parties in the country and other stakeholders to respect the rule of law and the Judiciary, which is an independent arm of Government. Sobriety and patriotism are key ingredients to peace during this period. We only have one Malawi and destruction of the country is counterproductive.
Government calls on the public to desist from posting fake news on
social media which creates tension about the impending ruling. Malawi is
a peaceful and God fearing country which does not condone violence.
Let us remain united and be agents of peace.
