Speaking to Timveni, MHRC Executive Secretary Habiba Osman praised the collaboration saying "human rights must always be safeguarded."
In his remarks, National Initiative for Civic Education(Nice) Trust coordinator for Mzimba, Kasungu and Mchinji districts Paul Kanyenda said, "The complaints handling platform will guarantee progress in the delivery of justice."
The 4 organizations conducted a training workshop for area civic educators on handling complaints received.
