Mtumodzi: Arrested

Nyasa Times reported last week that  Lilongwe Magistrate Court has issued a warrant of arrest to police  for former politician, journalist-cum-activist Mtumodzi and police detained him on Wednesday in the capital city at Lingadzi Police.

The  team from the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) had been hunting for Mtumodzi since the warrant was issued but could not found him.

Asked where he was, Mtumodzi simply said: “I have been around.”

Mtumodzi said he has been arrested the meeting he was organising with the vendors under the  Reform to Transform movement  led by Presdient Peter Mutharika’s fierce critic,  Z Allan Ntata.

Lilongwe police station spokesman Kingsley Dandaula confirmed the arrest to Nyasa Times.

“I can confirm we have indeed arrested Mr Mtumodzi,” said Dandaula.

“We have charged  him with conduct likely to cause breach of peace and obstructing  a police officer whilst on duty,” he added.

Mtumodzi said the meeting  with vendors was organized to finding a solution on how to recover the confiscated goods from LCC or get compensation from government’s Youth Development Fund (YEDEF)’s K6 billion.

“As patriotic Malawians and good Christians we feel sorry for our brothers whose goods were confiscated. These vendors depend on vending for survival and looking at the current financial crisis that this country is currently going through, we feel it’s not fair,” said Mtumodzi.

Meanwhile, Mtumodzi has been taken to Lilongwe City Centre clinic after a health scare.

He is being treated under police guard after a high blood pressure attack.

Mtumodzi own a capital city based Dziko FM radio.

Chikumbutso is one of the fortune seekers Malawi has ever had. He is a fortune seeker number 1.

He is crying just because he was not given a position in government.
