Three more attacks have been reported this evening with Area 18, Area 23 and Kanengo joining the list of molestation of women that started in the morning. This evening we have also seen a chorus of voice condeming the attacks with Vice President Joyce Banda asking all women to unite and speak out against injustice. "Women give life and that should be respected at all times" said Banda at her residence in Area 12 as soon as she arrived from Blantyre.
Banda who looked very shocked asked the press to give her a reason why young men would go wild and attack their own mothers, sisters and aunts and more importantly their customers.
Dorothy Ngoma the Executive Director of Nurses Organisation of Midwives and Nurses in Malawi has threatened to ask all female nurses to stop attending all middle aged men if attacks continues. She says Nurses wear trousers as part of their easy operations and attacks were a threat to all Nurses.
Executive Director of Malawi Health Equity Network Martha Kwataine said poor Malawians were venting anger on each other asking the vendors to go and sort out whoever has caused the frustrations they have.
Gender Minister Reene Kachere has described the attackers as worst that rapists asking Courts not to give them light sentence. She is planning to meet the victims.
"Tikugule lero-utivule Mawa" a campaign to boycott vendors wares has been launched and we are yet to assess the impact tommorrow. Stay on this blog as we give you latest updates on what is going on!
