MHRC Acknowledges Human Rights Flaws

The Malawi Human Rights Commission has admitted that the country is fairing badly on human rights issues.

MHRC executive secretary David Nungu said this on Monday, as Malawi and the rest of the world commemorates World Human Rights Day on 10 December in Lilongwe.

Speaking ahead of the day, Nungu said that like in most countries, the youth in the country top the list in having their rights abused.

“It has not been well for Malawi this year on issues to do with respect for human rights for especially the youths,” said Nungu.

Nungu said the need for special focus on the country’s youthful population is because they are lacking in many basic needs.

Said Nungu, “The youths are lacking in their basic needs like jobs, and have little knowledge about human rights issues hence falling victim.”

This year the day marks 71 years since the world adopted the universal declaration of human rights.

Although years have gone by, stakeholders observe that the youth remain less empowered on human rights issues hence the theme for this year focusing on this population group, “Youth Up for Human Rights”

The main event to mark the day is scheduled for Bingu National Stadium in Lilongwe.
