Act independently, analyst tells security agencies

A chancellor college based political analyst has called on security agencies in the country to act independently so as to bring perpetrators of political violence to book.

Enerst Thindwa made the sentiments to YFM online as Malawi joined the rest of the world in commemorating the International Day of Non-Violence which falls on 2 October each year.

He said it is worrisome that political violence is wide spread as the country draws nearer to 2019 elections.

Thindwa accused security agents of failing to investigate and prosecute ruling party sympathizers who are accused of violence .

“If violence seems to be done by people from the ruling party nothing happens but when the violence is perpetrated by opposition party, we see agents making a move which is unfortunate,” he said.

Thindwa has however condemned political violence being perpetrated towards different parties and the country at large saying it does not have room in a democratic society.
