The Centre for Democracy and Economic Development Initiatives (CDEDI) has undertaken a bold decision to ensure that justice is served on the people of Thyolo and Mulanje districts in southern Malawi, whose ancestral land was violently grabbed at gun point by the white settlers from Britain. The land issue in the mentioned districts has been a contentious outstanding wound that dates back to the late 1890s when the British settlers arrived. Surprisingly all the six presidents that have ruled Malawi paid a blind eye on the matter.
CDEDI has now taken a bold stand to seek legal redress to have the land portioned and given back to the rightful owners who are now languishing in untold misery of poverty, hunger and diseases due to overpopulation and lack of access to social amenities.
