Mtambo escapes assassination attempt

There was an apparent assassination attempt on human rights activist and Human Rights Defenders Coalition Chairperson Timothy Mtambo last night near Mtandile Bridge in Lilongwe.

According to Mtambo, unknown gunmen attacked him around 11 PM as he was driving home from a meeting in area 6 and fired 6 bullets which hit his car.

YFM’s visit to Center for Human Rights and Rehabilitation (CHRR) offices found Mtambo’s Range Rover double cab riddled with bullets.

This comes barely hours after government announced it has unearthed information that HRDC and the opposition MCP and UTM are planning to burn markets in the country tomorrow.
