Center for Democracy and Economic Development Initiative (CDEDI) says it will conduct national wide protests against government’s failure to address some governance issues.
CDEDI executive director Sylvester Namiwa said the peaceful national wide protests will be conducted first in Lilongwe on December 16, 2020.
Namiwa said reasons for the protests include President Lazarus Chakwera’s silence on the cries by local traders who petitioned him two weeks go to intervene on issues regarding foreigners who have invaded businesses that are supposed to be done by Malawians.
He said other issues include selective justice being applied by the Tonse administration, failure by the government to produce an expenditure report on the cancelled independence celebrations among others.
Namiwa also called for resignation of Energy Minister Newton Kambala to allow smooth investigations into his alleged involvement in the National Oil Company of Malawi (NOCMA) scandal.
