The government sponsored civil society grouping has condemned the Human Rights Defenders Coalition and some opposition political parties for causing havoc in the country, through their restraint anti Jane Ansah demonstrations.
The grouping dubbed Joint Civil Society Platform for Good Governance has bemoaned the rise in violence and destruction of both private and public property.
Speaking to Media in Lilongwe the Joint Civil Society for Good Governance chairperson Bright Kampaundi has described the aim behind the demonstrations as baseless saying are only being organized in a wave to oust the current regime.
Kampaundi while dismissing reports that they are working under government torch, said the grouping is concerned with the increased levels of violence, plunder and destruction of public assets a development which has put the country’s economy standstill.
“We have find that HRDC is in total violation of constitutional tenets of rule of law when they continue to protest and leverage negative influence on the electoral case that is currently in court,” says Kampaundi.
Meanwhile the JCSPG has announced its intention to hold what they call a “series of unending solidarity nationwide peaceful march” beginning on 23rd August all across the country, forward until peace is restored.
On his part the organization’s spokesperson Philip Kamangira has vowed that the grouping will shortly expose the sponsors behind the HRDC demonstrations that have hugely impacted the country’s economy.
The organization’s calls have come barely a day after HRDC made its announcement to hold shutdown demonstrations and vigils in all the boarders and airports, on 26 to 30 August.
