The Ministry of Homeland Security has condemned protesters in Karonga for beating and injuring three police officers during the Tuesday demonstrations.
The demonstrations were held against road blocks the police erected between Songwe boarder and Karonga boma.
Speaking in an interview, Minister responsible Nicholas Dausi said the behavior is uncalled for since people rely on the same police to provide security. He therefore called upon the public to refrain from such acts for peace and unity to prevail in the country.
However the Protestors Spokesman Goodwin Ghambi , said they took the drastic action after seeing that Malawi Revenue Authority and police failed to address their concerns
The ugly scenes started at Rukuru Roadblock, the protestors snatched four riffles and tearsgas cannisters from the police.
