Human Rights Consultative Committee to hold Police IG accountable about CDEDI Director

Must read

Human Rights Consultative Committee-HRCC says it will hold the State especially Inspector General of Police, George Kainja accountable if anything happens to CDEDI Executive Director Sylvester Namiwa while in police custody.


HRCC Chairperson, Robert Mkwezalamba adds it is deplorable to learn that Namiwa was in Leg Irons (chains) when arriving at the Area 3 Police Station as if he was a terrorist or answering matters of murder.

Mkwezalamba demands immediate release of Namiwa; arguing the police action has dented Malawi’s image on recognizing freedom of assembly as it hosts the SADC Summit.
“The reasons given by the authorities in stopping the CDEDI proposed vigils are but laughable and do not make sense,” says Mkwezalamba in a statement.
