COURT GRANTS INJUNCTION AGAINST DEMO

Newly appointed High Court judge, Justice Chifundo Kachale on Tuesday granted an injunction restraining civil society and pro-government supports from holding demonstration in the streets.
Malawians wanted to march on Wednesday to express what they said is their anger and disgust at President Mutharika’s “marauding tyranny, bad economic policies and [poor] democratic governance.”

But Justice Kachale in his ruling delivered on Tuesday ordered that there should be no demonstration by the civil society and also no counter- demonstration by the pro- government supporters.

Earlier on Tuesday, gangs of machete-wielding pro- government youths took to the streets of Malawi’s commercial capital Blantyre. @ Malawi Democratic
