Police stop fuel demonstrations

The police have moved in to stop demonstrations against the current fuel crisis that was scheduled for this morning in Lilongwe and Mzuzu.

The law enforcers describe the planned demonstrations as illegal.This comes two days after President Bingu wa Mutharika challenged the organisers of the protest march, the Human Rights Consultative Committee-HRCC to call off the protests.

Mutharika said he would sponsor their trip to Beira and Nacala ports to see for themselves what is causing the crisis.

And in Mzuzu, all is set for the demonstrations which are expected to start from Katoto Freedom Park to City council offices.The protesters are also expected to submit their petition to the city council chief executive officer Richard Hara.
