Kadadzera then warned that failure to comply with requirements of the “rendered the planned demonstrations unlawful”
“MPS is therefore calling up all citizens intending to participate in the planned demonstrations to stay away from these demonstrations as the organizers of the demonstrations have deliberately chosen not to comply with the law,” read party of the statement.
Yesterday, Kalindo’s loud-hailing vehicle was moving in Blantyre announcing that the planned demonstrations are on today.
Ironically, Kalindo has been summoned by the Lilongwe Senior Magistrate Court, on the same day he is planning to hold demonstrations.
