Local leaders in northern region bemoans authorities for suspending village tribunals

A local leader in Likoma has expressed worry that congestion in police and prison cells will worsen again following the phasing out of primary justice programs in a number of areas in the northern region.

Primary Justice Programs administered justice to minor cases with the aid of village tribunals.

Group village headwoman Chilunda of Likoma has since asked support from the district council to sustain village tribunals.

“They have cut out our local village courts they say we should bring each and every case to police stations but there some minor issues which don’t have to be sorted out by the police, This will result to overcrowding in police cells as they will be keeping offenders which doesn’t deserve to be locked in”, explained Group village headwoman Chilunda.
