HRCC salutes Kasambara’s legacy

Human Rights Consultative Committee (HRCC) has expressed deep shock over the death of lawyer Ralphael Kasambara.

In a statement signed by HRCC board Chairperson Desmond Mhango and Executive Director Robert Mkwezalamba, the Committee mourns Kasambara as a legend who contributed immensely to the growth of the civil society sector through unflinching legal services and advice on approaches to national actions and strategies to remain within the law.

HRCC reminisces the 2011 national demonstrations, which were the first of its kind where Malawians came out in large numbers to fight impunity, poor governance, and economic hardships, and in the process, the country lost over 15 citizens due to the heavy-handedness of the police.

The statement says the late Kasambara and team made themselves available during that time to offer pro bono services to civil society leaders and facilitated the safe hiding in foreign nations.

The statement acknowledges how, together with Counsel Wapona Kitta, Kasambala, and the team facilitated the removal of an injunction against the demonstrations, which was secured by the then government agents in the early hours of July 20, 2011, enabling the protests to proceed nationwide.
