Houses of some law enforcers were damaged during last Tuesday’s ‘1 Million March’ which Human Rights Defenders Coalition (HRDC) organised.

“The government will soon construct new houses for you,” Dausi said.

The minister condemned acts of violence during demonstrations, underscoring the importance of finding amicable ways of expressing anger instead of destroying people’s property.

Dausi applauded the Malawi Police Services for not using maximum force even when they were being attacked.

In spector General of Police, Rodney Jose, condemned demonstrators who torched officers’ houses, saying it was time Malawians considered the law enforcers as human beings.

“I want to appeal to Malawians that police officers are not their enemies. They have a right to life as well as all human rights as enshrined in the Constitution of the Republic of Malawi,” Jose said.

HRDC has been holding a series of nationwide demonstrations in an attempt to force Malawi Electoral Commission Chairperson, Justice Jane Ansah, to resign.
