Malawian activists who organised the July 20 deadly protests have warned of more protests, unless President Bingu wa Mutharika addresses their grievances

Malawian activists who organised the July 20 deadly protests say there will be more demonstrations unless President Bingu wa Mutharika addresses their grievances.

Protest organiser, Rafiq Hajat, says that Mutharika has until 16 August to resolve persistent fuel and foreign exchange shortages, adding that if not, the protests will begin the next day.

Mutharika has since reshuffled the country's military leadership following anti-government protests in three major cities. At least 19 people were killed in Malawi during demonstrations against the government.
