Human Rights Defenders Coalition (HRDC) is expected to hold a press briefing on Tuesday afternoon under the theme 'Enough is Enough' but citizens are expressing concern citing the grouping can not be trusted.
HRDC was on the forefront organising #Millionmarches to oust the then ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) and their credibility is in tatters.
Following Tonse Alliance being ushered into power in 2020, a number of the group's leaders likes Reverend Mcdonald Kasembereka, Billy Mayaya were given high ranking jobs in embassies and left.
Before leaving they exchanged words with Malawians whom they marched together with on the streets saying they deserve those posts because they fought the powers that be alone.
The foremost man, Comrade Timothy Mtambo got a ministerial position which was specifically crafted for him, National Unity, a portfolio people questioned saying he is the last person to talk about peace.
Gift Trapence stuck it out and remained as the head and now that Malawians went from the flying pan to the fire, he had taken up the fight but people are pessimistic.
