The Malawi Defense Force (MDF) has, reportedly, fired a senior officer days after the officer engaged his senior in a bloody fist fight.

President Peter Mutharika Friday used a public platform to go to town on his political opponents accusing them of spending time in ‘futile’ efforts to topple his regime.

Police say they have set up a six member criminal investigation team into the alleged human rights abuses including rape and defilement by officers at Msundwe in Lilongwe in October last year.

President Peter Mutharika says is he is waiting, with keen interest, the outcomes of police investigations into what happened at Msundwe in October where a police officer was stoned to death on duty and a string of women and girls allege were raped and defiled by men in uniform.

Latest reports by the Malawi Human Rights Commission (MHRC) on investigations into a police operation at Msundwe on the outskirts of Lilongwe city suggests that ill-prepared riot police went wild raping women including defiling girls as young as 12.

The Human Rights Defenders Coalition (HRDC) yesterday held a Freedom March in Lilongwe to mark this year’s World Human Rights Day, leading Malawians to demand for the protection of their rights.
