These brave people called lectures are fighting not only for the freedom of their profession as being teachers, but also freedom for every profession in malawi and beyond. They are also fighting for the freedom of every malawian as people like the police are not supposed to abuse their profession just because they are police officers. They have the duty to protect the freedom which people of malawi suffer for to obtain it, not to destroy it.
One day when the police officers took me from my father's home in Chirimba to Ndirande police station in malawi, in 2009, because my father, who did not want to pay my school fees, told them to do so. It is very pathetic to realise that the only simple family issue was the only issue that made me see the police station i had never wish to visit yet in my life. Treated like a criminal and being intimidated, were some of the things i received from the silly police officers on that day.
HAVING REMEMBERED THIS
I strongly support the motives of the brave lectures of the university of malawi. I believe the lecture who was taken to a police officer's home instead of taken to the police station, to be questioned on the strike of students, was also indeed treated in a similar manner as i was. Being innocent person who was just doing his profession, he has the right not to meet the president, when called, to discuss the issue for fear of being further intimidated and treated like a useless person on earth, while being innocent.
I ALSO FEEL
The chiefs - who may be used by the government - to be gainst these brave lectures, can do so because they want the silly government to build for each of them a 30 million malawi kwacha worthy house - like it did built for other chiefs of the region where the president of malawi comes from - when an average student like me can not afford to pay k350000 or k50000 school fees.
All I CAN SAY
Bravo Lectures!, bravo Freedom fighters!, and bravo brave people!. We really need the freedom.
