People in Malawi out in huge numbers in protest against the government. But the great thing here is the military and the police are PROTECTING the demonstrators. This is something new to Africa. This is refreshing. This is what a democracy should look like.

The situation in #Malawi needs more attention. It has barely registered on the radar. In sum, the Mutharika gov't, which won a controversial election last May, has attempted to bribe judges - they refused and reported the matter to the corruption bureau. No action has been taken.
 
Dear @edmnangagwa,

In Malawi, the military protects protesters who demonstrate.

In Zimbabwe, the military shoots protesters who demonstrate.

We need new leaders.🇿🇼
 
 
This is amazing! The malawian army showing Africa who between govts &the people they should be loyal to. I don't see any chaos. Only peaceful citizens saying #EnoughAlready
@UPDFspokespersn @PoliceUg do you copy?
 
 
In reply to @Asmali77
Correction .. the military is protecting the people from the police
 
 
We are trending for the right reasons Malawi

Many years to come. The Malawi Democratic Journey shall be studied

Real separation of power in Practice

Judiciary, The Army, Parliament are totally separate from the Presidency

This should be the Bedrock for 🇲🇼's Devt
 
Malawian army protecting citizens😍👌🏿

in Namibia NDF shot one individual for making a U-turn,another one was shot for taking a video, many others were brutaly kicked for breathing oxygen in the precence of NDF personnel 😭
 
In reply to @Asmali77
Same happened in Zimbabwe and Sudan. You know the outcome.
 
In reply to @Asmali77
They once did this to us in Zimbabwe,but a year later when we demonstrated they shot us,the army is not in support of the public it's pushing agendas for their political horse
 
 
In reply to @Asmali77
Until we appreciate the police being a SERVICE and NOT a FORCE we'll continue admiring the discipline in other jurisdictions☹️☹️
 
Should we tell them or......
 
The Zambian Police/Army can never ...
 
 
In Zimbabwe, the military protect a tiny, violent, murderous and corrupt political cabal against millions of impoverished citizens. The day citizens stand up against this group and its paramilitary militia wont be nice. Politicians must learn to respect he SOVEREIGN
 
Is someone going to tell them? ☹️
 
No, this is unheard, unseen and unprecedented in the entire world. Well done Malawi 🙌🙌
 
 
The revolution in Kenya will be very peaceful. Police will go with the people.

The bad guys in the forces are usually a small unit that protects the executive and does its dirty work.

In 2002, NIS adviced Moi to step down. NIS boss was a Kalenjin.
 
This is a coup by the book. e.g Sudan, Zimbabwe.
 
In reply to @Asmali77
The whole country is fed up,including the military.
 
In reply to @Asmali77
The military is also tired with regime and probably wants to take over the moment they oust the government!
 
This happened in Zimbabwe and we know it ended with @edmnangagwa . @LynneStactia tell him.
 
Zimbabwe, should we tell them?
 
I'd love if our forced could embrace the same mindset #Mwiki #Kasarani
 
They should ask Zimbabwe how this ends.
 
In reply to @Asmali77
👀 why am I not excited. Military did what?
 
Uganda what's good?! 🙃
 
In reply to @Asmali77
In 🇿🇼 our police force @PoliceZimbabwe beat elders, women are not spared either. Then our army will finish the job by shooting protesters at 45 degrees with live rounds . Our security forces also moon light as "Mashurugwis,", equiv to Interahamwe. Pray for us 😢.
 
People love this stuff.

Except that, when demonstrations are allowed by the millitary just know this..

1. A coup is on the offing

2. Power brokers are flexing their influence in the security structures.

3. A new replacement for current president has been identified.
 
In reply to @Asmali77
The army is overthrowing the sitting government.This is not a rocket science my friend.
 
In Africa army cannot protect the people but when you see such happening know that it’s coup and top generals are behind it.

Waau....the government belongs to the people. Kudos to the Malawi military. This will increase trust between the people and the military. Thank you God
 
This will only happen in Kenya the day we will realize protesting does not mean looting. Unfortunately we take such opportunities to steal from each other.
 
 
Kenya, is that volume ok?
 
In reply to @Asmali77
Democracy has never and will never be universal, each country should have a system that works for them well based on their history & prevailing circumstances; you can't copy paste democracy we fail because of copy pasting everything without deep thought
 
The military is protecting people from the Police. #AbandiBana
 
Cc @FredMatiangi @SakajaJohnson

What happened in Kasarani is not accepted in a free world @Nyasirwa @mogire_jusper

Please....
 
Inspector general Ndeitunga and air vice marshal Martin Kambulu Pinehas should take notes
 
 
New to Africa? Read please.
 
Zimbabweans, should we keep quite or we tell them... 😂
 
Is it civil led or military led?!
@ThabitSenior
 
Zambia, look at your friends pa neighbour!!
 
I remember these people thought Joyce Banda was and that she was woman so she wasn't knowledgeable enough, they ended with the current guy.. Now here they are.. Its easy to say that u can government when u r out there but wen u get there.. Its a different story.
 
In reply to @Asmali77
Zimbabwe should we tell them??
 
In reply to @Asmali77
This is a great lesson to the @GovUganda, @NRMOnline and @PoliceUg. Imagine Dr. @kizzabesigye1 and @HEBobiwine being protected by the forces as they lead demonstrations!
 
In reply to @Asmali77
Very new in Africa,this should be emulated in Kasarani
 
 
I love what is happening in Malawi. This is what we call democracy and respect to humanity
 
Molisana aus mantho ene ke bazala le mosaa oa president ea Malawi ebe a ka leba teng joale ha eka ho mehoanto tjee haik
 
this is how it is supposed to be like. 😭😭😭
 
 
 
8 months after the elections we are still here and we will rescue this country from the mafias
 
 
Africans should indeed free themselves from corrupt governments
 
Not a sarcastic question, but protecting them from what?
 
A far cry from the concomitant action in Marikana neh chief @CyrilRamaphosa?
 
In reply to @CyrilRamaphosa
@CyrilRamaphosa look, no one ordered the police to shoot protesters! Isn’t this amazing?
 
In reply to @NPSOfficial_KE
@NPSOfficial_KE this is what "utumishi kwa wote" looks like! Always remember WE the citizens are YOUR employers. Thank you. Now back to your "utumishi kwa VIP's". @Ma3Route
 
A quick peek into the ongoing political situation in #Malawi @justindlong
 
Protecting the demonstrators from who? In essence they are protecting the demos from the military and police themselves since they enforce orders from their Bosses @rggoobi
 
In reply to @Asmali77
The same happened in Zim when the military wanted Mugabe out. But since then there no more pity for protestors...
 
In reply to @Asmali77
ED regime readily spills the blood of citizens when they exercise their constitutional right to demonstrate and express their views
 
In reply to @Asmali77
There is everything wrong with the army on the streets against an unarmed civilian crowd. Thats the job of the police. That's intimidation tactics. An army protects the countries borders.
 
In reply to @Asmali77
[Thread] 1. In Malawi, people are very peaceful and very quiet. A lot things have happened and now people are just working up from the deepest slumber. 2. Police is a tool used by politicians in government to silence those who hold the government accountable. (thread...)
 
In reply to @Asmali77
Isn't this nice to see.. 😊😊
 
Someone explain this to me. Isn’t the military ‘commanded’ by the president who is the head of government? I’m abit confused on this one🤔
 
Military is protecting people from the police, I don't really know if it's a good thing.
 
Light at the end of the tunnel..
 
Meanwhile in Kenya the youth are getting shot at and killed for wanting better roads, I swear Kenya is an actual skit!
 
 
Zimbos, will it or it won't work?
 
This is what unity looks like ya'll
 
What real democracy looks like
 
This is how police should conduct themselves during peaceful demos #Kasarani
 
 
UPDF & UPF weyayu 😭
 
If this happens in Zimbabwe then we know its a coup which is actually not a coup
 
Issa matter of time😊
 
😂😂😂 please have a chat with Zimbabweans
 
 
In reply to @Asmali77
In Kenya its indisciplined forces at work yet they are the most affected when it comes to resources, standards and poverty... change and better roads will suit them too... our security agencies they are always against citizenry... shame of our country
 
In reply to @Asmali77
Protecting them from who? 😂😂😂 Themselves?
 
In reply to @Asmali77
Surely it is great that armed forces do not beat or even shoot at demonstrators. However, be careful: it could mean, in the worst case, that military seeks popular support to take power.
 
In reply to @Asmali77
The place is free and one can even access the tomb where the first president was buried without any barriers or guards. Try it in Kenya.....
 
In reply to @Asmali77
can you send officials of @NPSOfficial_KE here? They need to learn not everything needs force to stop
 
In reply to @Asmali77
 
In reply to @Asmali77
We will rescue this country from the mafias
 
In reply to @Asmali77
Wait a minute, they are protecting the demonstrators from who by the way???
 
In reply to @Asmali77
The military look like the ones I killed in Africa while playing MGS phantom pain
 
 
In reply to @Asmali77
1, not new. 2) Just wait a year 😂
 
In reply to @Asmali77
Ask zimbabweans , they will tell you a story similar to this and the results
