HRDC warns off possible demos

At least four months have elapsed since the Human Rights Defenders Coalition (HRDC) gave government 30 days to outline its plan on addressing economic hardships in the country or else face nationwide demonstrations dubbed “Pa ground sipali bwino”.

But speaking to YFM, HRDC southern region chairperson, Masauko Thawe, said the organisation is using different strategies before resorting to protests.

Thawe warned government to swiftly address the concerns before the situation gets out of hand.

“If the concerns are not addressed then you will see a bomb ticking,” he said.

In his remarks on the demonstrations by the former UTM National Director of Youth, Bon Kalindo, Thawe said HRDC has no any problem since Kalindo is only exercising his constitutional right.
