Author: Jean
Published: Oct 08, 2011

Another new law lets the president ban any publication deemed critical of the government. In July police shot dead 20 protesters who had demanded political and economic reforms; the police claimed they were looters. Government critics are subject to what Joyce Banda, Malawi’s vice-president (recently expelled by Mr Mutharika from the ruling party), has called a “reign of terror”. Critics of the president have listed arson attacks, death threats and physical assaults. Mr Chasowa’s alleged suicide is just the latest and most ominous incident."
