Press Statement:

Condemning Distortion of Communication on April 27 Demonstrations

17th April 2018

We, at Human Rights Defenders Forum (HRDF), want to strongly condemn the cheap propaganda being spread by some ill-fated operatives who have added violence to innocent and peaceful messages for the planned April 27 Nationwide Demonstrations. Furthermore, these evil souls are distorting the communication on routes that will be taken by all Malawians of good will during the demonstrations.
