The head of state might be a good man, but those deeds on behalf of his government were not cool and are not good for Africa or her descendants abroad waiting to come home.
We are simply saying, the government needs to say they are sorry and to give the people the right to voice their opinion and opposition to whatever they feel like. No one should be shot or harassed when they protest without arms.
No "Inquiry" that is going to put the blame solely on the police and not on those that give them orders is going to wash away this crime. This move is still the sort of dishonesty that we are hoping to rid Africa and the world of. If we must be governed, it must be by those in service and responsible to us.
An apology and compensation, forums for grievance, equal justice and re-instating of rights is what we call upon the Government of Malawi to do. Clear consciences fear no accusation. If a soh, a soh.
We love Africa, and we criticize her because we want her to be the best that she can be.
