Hundreds of people participated in the street march and some of them held placards and banners. These condemned the Gaza conflict and called for peace to return to the enclave.
The march happened to be the first time Malawian religious leaders marched against a conflict, almost 5,000km from home. The Forum for Democracy and Rights Defenders organized this march.
Shaibu Abdurrahman Ajasi, its chairperson also said Malawi had a duty to join the world to protest the conflict.
“Enough is enough, and we, too, should stand up and speak against what is happening in Gaza,” Ajasi said.
Their main concern according to him is the killing of innocent people which needs to stop. According to the Hamas-controlled Health Ministry in Gaza, 11,000 people have been killed since Israel’s major air and ground offensive.
Also, about 240 people have been kidnapped and are still being held hostage by Hamas in Gaza. Israel recently accused Hamas of using hospitals and patients as human shields for command centers and safe houses. However, Hamas and the hospitals denied these accusations.
