Assistant Public Relations for police southern region, Peter Mchiza, confirmed that Chikondi Saidi, 26 was picked by law enforcers after witnesses reported him to the police.

Saidi reportedly stoned the billboard of Decent and Affordable Housing Subsidy Programme message bearing Mutharika’s face.

He packed dozens of stones at Lunzu Primary School last Thursday and started stoning the bill board.

“We arrested him for vandalism,” Mchiza said.

Mchiza said his behaviour could have provoked violence.

Saidi comes from Mazale village in Traditional Authority Kapeni in Blantyre.

He faces up to five years in jail if convicted.

    I see no issue here! Remember that the billboard, even it contains the face of a head of state, is and does not become a protected emblem in Malawi.

    Its the current economic situation that basically made him look at the face of APM with hate and bitterness – bad memories of his lost and wated vote, never to be redeemed.

    All Malawians who love this nation need to accept that this is an act of bitterness with a misplaced course of action that can be understood considering the tough economic times

    in other societies this would be a case to empathize show compassion and take for an immediate psychiatric evaluation and subsequent counselling

    Behaviuor is so important gentlemen in thai it covers conduct, out put and discipline among other things. Let us think of someone who is good at producing a good quality wooden chair but after destroying and wasting too much timber is a good artisan.

  22. Balakasa wa ku lundu says:

    Pali nkhani apa, we voted for democracy and stoning billboard is not stoning Peter personally. Who is peter afterall, if Zuma is labelled as a thief face to face by his people and Obama’s billboard was burnt by supporters of opp but no one was caught by the police. Leave that man free. He is expressing his dissatisfaction of APM Administration. Just ask peter to improve in his governance system

    O………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………O
    Every madness has a reason . . .
    But whether this anger or frustration is because of chamba or this butt-bitting economic hardship or whatever; there are always better ways of expressing it. Its non sequitur of an alibi for one to cut down trees or hit house walls or break furniture when angry.
    Most importantly . . .
    “When anger rises, think of the consequences.” – Confucius (Chinese Philosopher)
    …………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….
    . . . It may make broken sense in a rat’s mind to go to jail to receive free one meal per day (which is certain); and better than several meals per day out here (which are unceratin).
    . . . But only a lazy and useless idiotic idiot fails to understand that the freedom he/she has outside prison can be used to earn him/her several certain meals per day, if he cared to think more and act more.

    Freedom is worth having, whether on an empty stomach or full stomach; empty or full pockets; alone as a bachelor or spinster or married e.t.c

    Let us all thus refuse to be stupid hence lose or sale our freedom cheaply, coz freedom is just as priceless as life itself; and sometimes even more, coz stupid as it sounds, some people even give up their life just to be free.
