Human Rights Defenders Coalition (HRDC) officials are describing tomorrow's (Thursday) protests as a big bang, saying the focus and climax of it will be the presentation of a petition to the offices of the Anti-Corruption Bureau offices in Lilongwe.

Vice Chairperson Gift Trapence , says they will tackle a number of issues on the nationwide demonstration which the human rights organizations confirms will take place January 16, 2020, in major cities of the country.

He said they will also tackle issues on alleged attempts to bribe judges in the high profile presidential election case and delays to arrest suspects in Nsundwe rape saga.

Timothy Mtambo, HRDC Chairperson, says petition will be presented to Anti-Corruption Bureau in Lilongwe because the main focus of the Thursday protests will be on the alleged bribes to the judges.
