Malawi’s Black Monday starts Dec 9
The Civil Society Organizations Grand Coalition says the Malawi government is insensitive and playing cheap politics which demonstrates lack of appreciation of the suffering of Malawians when it begins to associate the Black Monday demonstration to Satanism.
Spokesperson of the coalition, Benedicto Kondowe told The Daily Times on Tuesday that although government is reacting in this way, the movement will proceed and ensure
that the Black Mondays agenda of wearing black attire every Monday from December 9 sets off as planned.
“The Black Monday is a symbolism
of mourning for loss of our hard earned public resources by the few selfish Malawians. The Black Monday also signifies a sense of grief for loss of our dear brothers and sisters due to preventable causes apparently because hospitals and most health facilities have run out of drug stocks and supplies.
“More so the Black Monday is a moment of reflection for Malawians calling for the state leadership to be selfless in their wisdom to protect the interest of all Malawians, and to demonstrate responsive leadership that is characterized by urgency of action and the call to national duty,” said Kondowe.
He, therefore, said the coalition, whose members have already begun putting on black on Mondays, expects that Malawians and residents of goodwill will provide solidarity in the set public agenda.
The commissioning of the Black Mondays, he says, was to prick Malawians across the country to stand up and challenge government to demonstrate good stewardship of the public purse.
“The people of Malawi reject to be stepped on and speak in unison that a better and corrupt free Malawi is possible if Government is committed to walking the talk. From all fronts, Malawians are urging to give the voice and weight that this special day deserves. It is either they choose justice and accountability or accept to suffer at the feet of the looters,” he said.
Government has fired back at the adoption of the Black
Mondays, a concept adopted from Uganda as one that promotes Satanism, a thing the coalition has said is sad, considering that the Malawi national flag contains the colour black which nobody has associated with Satanism.

call by the Catholic Commission for Justice and Peace (CCJP) for a Holy anger among Malawians whose hard earned resources are being plundered in the face of increasing costs of goods and services which in most cases are not adequately being provided them.
CCJP National Secretary, Chris Chisoni told journalists, recently, that it is high time that Malawians begun to demand that which they are entitled to as citizens of the country who are also paying taxes.
