Federalism proponents Ngwira, Mkandawire face arrest

Malawi Government intends to arrest two prominent opposition People’s Party (PP) legislators from North, Harry Mkandawire and Mzomera Ngwira, on trumped up charges soon after the current Parliament sitting. It is a way of silencing them as vocal proponents of Federalism and Secession for the region.

Mkandawire: Faces arrest

Mkandawire: Faces arrest

Mzomera Ngwira: We will push on

Mzomera Ngwira: We will push on

Ngwira is legislator for Mzimba Hora while Mkandawire represents Mzimba West.

The two are likely to be thrown into police cell soon after Parliament rises on October 4, 2014 according to impeccable sources.

State agents within the National Intelligence Bureau (NIB) and Malawi Police Service (MPS) indicate that two teams of state security agencies will be dispatched to Mzuzu on October 5 to effect their arrest.

“All is set to arrest the two politicians as government believes that they are funding a pressure group itching for secession.,” Nyasa Times sources in the state spy agency  NIB  said.

The sources further revealed that the arrests are bound to happen in the legislator’s Mzuzu homes though the charges are yet to be ‘manufactured’.

The plot is to arrest them in the early hours of October 5 or 6 “from their homes” and also  search their  residences.

Ngwira has much been in the forefront in calling for an autonomous Northern Region in a federal government, claiming that it has remained underdeveloped for the 50 years that Malawi has been an independent state.

    Do u want another masacre?

    What u have to know is that hon Mkandawire and ngwira have full blessings from the north.. U will worsen and facilitate the secession or federalism… If I were APM I cud have thot and acted wisely… Remember what former bingu did and the results of his action.. Don’t forget that this gvnt isn’t supported by the majority and peoples hearts are still in despairm.. Think on this and act wisely lest u enter in regrets.

    People of Malawi- Any system of govt may be good if it bears desired fruits that meet country’s objectives. Malawi in 1993 voted for Multiparty govt in a referendum in view of change of Govt system. is multiparty on the rocks now? Multiparty The genesis of Federalism is badly introduced as it from people who were in Govt poised to win an election and failed . This is being reactive and many would take this as a mere greed and power hungry for the very people who were in power under PP. If PP had won the election, could this be a proposal from govt? Will people take this really serious? MCP self acclaimed victory isn’t helping too as the fallen party needs a further rebuilding. Cool down Mzomera and Harry, you are carrying a wrong message for Malawians..

    1. Kenkkk says:

      Are you going to threaten to arrest your strongest DPP supporter ben Chiza Mkandawire as well who started the whole federalism issue and is still the staunchest proponent of it ?

      What are north and centre DPP mps saying on this? Scared of their bwanas? It is a free country !! Come on you north and centre DPP mps, let us hear your views!!!

  14. Optic Computer says:

    This is a sign that the duo’s claims is factual. In history, I have learned that arresting people for political reasons results into hardening their hearts to achieve their goals. Kamuzu was accused and arrested on treason charges, and Malawi was energised. Chihana was accused and arrested on treason charges, and Malawi achieved democracy. Now, accuse and arrest Ngwira and Mkandawire, the North will later be another independent country.

    When people start complaning, a wise government must look into the people’s complaints with sober minds. All independent countries got their independence from oppressive powers. South Africa, from the oppressive Britain, and later blacks from oppressive Boers. Independent Malawi from oppressive Britain; democratic Malawi from the oppressive Kamuzu. Burry your heads into the sand, ad when you wake up, the boundaries of Malawi will cease to what you are familiar with.

    Arrests will make a bad situation worse.Government should learn not to use intimidation in a democracy. Our Constitution is very clear on rights of citizens.
    Just open up the federalism debate in Parliament and let our MPs debate this topic as it happened in Scotland last week. There is no criminal case that our MPs should answer here. If these two MPs are arrested, the North will be very angry indeed.

    Mr Okay, look now Scotland has shaken the whole of uk govt which is now going to change to a more like federal system. The scots have even got more power by choosing to remain in uk and all other uk regions like wales, Northern Ireland and even England are demanding to be given the same powers as those given to Scotland. So in fact Scotland has won despite voting no to independence. Don’t forget the scots also are the ones who founded Nyasaland for the uk govt. Our CCAP church is a Scottish church known as Church of Scotland or free Church of Scotland in Scotland or uk( scots are mostly presbertyrians).

    That is exactly what the north is doing and has always been doing in Malawi. Bring change to political landscape of Malawi!!! If a referendum is done in the north it can be a yes or a no. The result may not necessarily be the same as Scotland. We have seen many other countries who have voted yes to independence. So there is no guarantee that the north will say no as some of you people are already predicting!! Africa is different and Malawi is different. The scots after all they were already getting more money from uk govt than other regions, they don’t have problems of being underdeveloped or neglected. But that is not true with the north of Malawi.

  42. The Patriot says:

    More fire Ngwira and Mkandawire! If these two are arrested then a million Ngwiras and Mkandawires will rise! No easy walk to freedom! Its better to die fighting for ones rights than to live under oppression and discrimination. We fully support you.

  43. Craniwell Yabooka says:

    There is need to try Federalism because the current system is benefiting Ahlomwe. Ku Ntcheu we have always voted for DPP but there is nothing tangible they have done for us. All we hear of are road projects in MTL belt. Wr have been used and abused enough. More fire Mkandawire and Ngwira.

  44. BLINDED says:

    SO THE ONLY POWER AVAILABLE IS FEDERAL SYSTEM, THAT WILL GIVE YOU POWER TO EMPLOY ENOUGH TUMBUKA +MORE SCHOOLS+MORE HOSPITALS.
    BUT NONE OF THE ABOVE SOLVES TRIBALISM. LOVE IS THE ANSWER. I THINK WE ARE GOING FAR…….GREEDY.

  45. BLINDED says:

    DID you KNOW if YOU GIVE ALL OF THEM JOBS >>>>>THEY WILL ALL SHUT THEIR MOUTHS.
    DOES IT GIVE SENSE RIGHT?

  46. Osward says:

    My humble view is that people are asking to either secede or go for federalism. To arrest them for this will be pouring fuel on fire. Why can we in the spirit of oneness engage them in constructive discussions which should end in peace and not pieces?

    These threats are a prelude to more violence in the immediate future. Government should commit itself to understand their view. In my view these people are free to claim self independence or federal system for as they do so in transparent and peaceful way. They have the right to choose who must govern them. If on the other hand we see that there is something we need as Malawi we need to do it right then we need just to do it to forge ahead with freedom and peace as a nation.
    Arrest will breed more violence and turmoil as the disgruntled party will seek more secret methods of resolving a simple disagreements. Remember it is the former DPP government that killed more protesters in the same region than others on July 20.
    SEEKING GENUINE PEACE THROUGH DISCUSSIONS IS THE ONLY WAY TO GO AND NOT CONFRONTATIONS

And so a motorbike cant use fuel of 300 horsepower ferrari the power is far matched. Mangochi cant demand to build Games shop or shoprite because the money that will cost to build it is far too much against what will the shop make in mangochi the same wil do wonders once built in mzuzu. You cant just do it like planting a flower. But again it would look stupid planting a kilometre flower garden for it’s beauty, when you know you should use same energy to plant mbatatesi for food. Just say you like WAR kuti nkhalamba ziyambe kuthamango. Mulibe makolo okalamba yeti?

    ITS EITHER YOU SILENCE THE GOVERMENT OR GOVERMENT SILENCE YOU.

ITS AN HIJACK TO FORCE IT TO BUILD SCHOOLS ROADS HOSPITALS AND TOWNS. Is as good as forcing malawi to build something that will look like Johannesburg tomorrow when we rely on donars FUNDS. IF north becomes federal system how do they achieve those Demands? With no money……

  63. Why is it that everybody who comes at the hot sit is fighting against people from the north?what are they afraid of???.this really shows that,people from the north are blessed.federa government is the only solution to solve all this.you guys from center and south have to accept that,north always beat you in almost everything.that is why such idiot readers are trying to find ways in order to desteoy people from the north.but you must remember that,if GOD chose this north side no one can block it.we will fight up to the end.you can call north is dead,but why do you comes to work as slaves in our farms.some of your brothers and sisters changes their and begs for mercy to be allowed to settle in the north why???answer if you have the answer.we don’t deserve to stay in your regon at all wat we wnt is our freedom to education that’s all.becoz us we automatically know that,our success is education.that’s why we always work hard wen it comes to education.

  65. God Hear Me says:

    I do not understand some of you guys from the north, you are advocating for equal share of resources at the same time you are refusing to accept quota system what is your problem?

    By the way if you want northern secondary schools to have more students from the north then
    1. You should first of all give statistics of how many students from the north are in government, private and faith based secondary schools in other regions as compared to students from other regions that are in the north
    2. You should again give statistics on how many people from the north are employed in those organisations, government departments, companies that are headed by the people from the north as compared to those headed by people from other regions. For a start I will give examples of companies like ILLOVO, JTI, ALLIANCE ONE, department of crops at Bunda College, Evangelical Association of Malawi, Eagles Relief and development of the Living Waters Church, Christian Aid, Total Land Care

    1. God Hear Me says:

      3. You should also give figures of how many people from other regions work or get employed in the north as compared to northerners getting employed in the other regions and vice versa

      4. You should also give figures of how many students from the North are at Mzuzu Unversity, Livingstonia University, CHAM colleges and other colleges in the north as compared to those from other regions and vice versa.

      5. Once you are done with these figures then you can bring the debate of federalism and quota system on the table

    Why arrest people who are just debating secession or federalism? They didn’t call for arms or war, why arrest them? DPP is really frightened!!! You will just create unnecessary problems for yourselves, for what?

    1. Baba wa Boyi says:

      It appears you do not know the meaning of debate. Ngwira and Mkandawire are not derbating they are inciting, narrow minded northerners to resort to violence.

      In your stupid northerner mind, do you think you can have a peaceful demonstratrion in Malawi? And when you pay people to cause havock, you start point fingers at the wrong people.

      When are you idiots going to learn that these two are using you to boost their own popularity.

      1. Kenkkk says:

        You are calling us narrow minded, then you are the one now inciting us to violence. Calm down brother!! After all they were debating about education, so why link this with federalism or secession( better word will be independence). Why don’t you arrest the MCP mps who are also calling for the same things? So everything will stop by arresting thes two?

        The north is also divided on the matter of federalism, so Is the centre. The two are just proponents of federalism and are openly trying to educate people on the matter. Again, what about the MCP proponents of the same? You have just shown us your hated of the north.

        But you are scared of federalism or independence discussions because you southerners still want to monopolise power for ever.

        There is absolutely no case for arresting these people who are actually mps doing their work. They will sue the govt and get billions in compos. You will be wasting our resources by paying them just because they are proponents of federalism or independence. They will get rich through your stupidity.

        Please stop behaving like the old one party state arresting people left right and centre for any constructive debate or discussions.

        You will be the one sending trouble makers to disrupt demos and cause problems. Who doesn’t know you DPP people the way you work?

          Here you go again, being narrow minded.

          If you look carefully on this same page you will see there is a story. ” Muthalika orders Joyce Banda arest” and people made same noises as you are making, was Joyce Banda arrested?

          So you believe a story that is not verified, and you ask”Why arrest people” Have they been arrested?

          You are being used by Joyce Banda, through Ngwira and Mkandawire, so that when you start a fracas, she believes she can come back.
          Hence “Narrowmindedness” Nothing personal but an observation.

          By the was you are wrong to assume I am from the south, hence my use of “Narrow minded Northerners, not all Northerners, because Northerners like me are not taken in by all this Rubbish.

          Where were these two when Joyce was in power, if vJoyce was still in power do you think they wopuld be talking about federation? Muthalika is doing things wrong, but advocating for federation does not solve those problems.

          You talk about independence, realy do you even know what it takes to creat a country? As soon as you become independend, the next thing bwill be the boarder bwith Central, is it Jenda or Dwangwa?

          That my friend will bring war, have you ever been in a war? Your Ngwira and Mkandawire will be the first to run away, Mkandawire came to Malawi recently he had run away from Malawi and lived all his life in Zambia, and now he is a champion of independence? wake up and smell the coffee.

          1. Kenkkk says:

            If you follow me carefully you will notice that am a northerner and MCP supporter, not pp. Also a supporter of the status quo rather than federalism or independence. But I speak my mind on any of those issues.

            All am saying if the DPP govt is threatening to arrest those two north MPs, why is it not threatening the MCP MPs who are also proponents of federalism. I never said those two have been arrested, so please my brother don’t twist my words.

            When you talk about war, you really don’t know what you are talking about. Federalism or independence can be achieved peacefully, only savages think otherwise. Your scaremongering won’t work!!!

            There is nothing wrong for the country to engage maturely discussing these issues. I personally fav our the current system of govt but with a strong good governance and significant change of attitudes for the DPP leadership towards the north and indeed even the centre. Otherwise my next option is actually independence not federalism if the current system continues to fail the delivery of good governance and fair distribution of resources or development.

  90. Dadaboma says:

    Just try to arrest them, and you’ll see what shaved a guinefowl. North ndi mtunda amwene, mutha nonse. We’ve warned you.

  91. Kanthu Ako! says:

    I do not know a country with so many idiots like Malawi.

    It is not long time ago, when Joyce Banda was facing arrest. “Ndiuyo akumvayo”

    At that time you talked and talked “Rubbish” and that died a natural death. Now you are doing the same, and you have forgotten you were used same way less that two months ago. What morons

    Ngwira and Mkandawire deserve to be arrested, nothing to do with the president, It is called “inciting” Why was Chihana arrested? “Inciting” the law is there it does not need a president to invoke it.

    Malawians too selective on which law to follow, if it favouirs you “Its a good law” if it doesnt “This president is bad” what idiots.

We are far better with our dear sisters and brothers from the south and not akambuku a kumpoto. Go away to your north, leave our central region now

    1. kanchenga says:

      How can say that we are comfortable with the thieves from the south you full. We want to stand alone too. These dogs can go to their south and please take your ntcheu with you. The slaves from the north go to their canan too. Foolish hand clappers can’t agree on one thing among themselves. Their stupid chiefs say one thing and the plebeian another.

  95. Bonface Phiri says:

    This will be a serious mistake as it will fuel protests without relenting. Northerners are nursing a lot of grievances now which include the unpopular quota system. Look at how the government is even using the system to deprive places for students in secondary schools as well like Nkhata Bay. And the rude and provocative reason the so called Minister of education gave in parliament. Dare to do it and you will see what will follow next. This government is a crap and easily takes risks

  96. truth be told says:

    Central supporting southern is total mudness. central and north are all victims, therefore we share same fate. As a guy from central region, i fully support federal government. Let lomwe, sena, yao etc govern themselves.

    Mr Mophiya mapwiya peter muthalika arrest is an under statement these insane tumbukas need 6mm full metal jacket bullet fixed in their asses.

  105. Professional journalist says:

    If u arrest them u will create unnecessary instability. Northeners wil come out in large numbers to support them. No one shud be arrestd 4 expresing their views. Peter Mutharika shud not the mistake his brother made. People hav the right to speak. Rev. Ngwira and Harry Mkandawire are speakng on behalf of millions of northeners. Even people in other regions are supporting federal govt. Many pipo from the south don’t understand federal state. Umbuli basi. Federal state is about sharing power, sharing resources. Why do u want to arrest pipo 4 expresing their views? Do it and watch the consequences! We’ll start chasing those who come from the south. Don’t say u were not told.

EACH STATE IS UNIQUE IN ITS OWN WAY BUT IT IS STILL ONE COUNTRY. FEDERALISM DOES NOT MEAN PEOPLE ARE DIVIDED, BUT EACH REGION HAS CERTAIN AMOUNT OF POWERS TO RUN ITS OWN AFFAIRS. DON’T JUST US THE INTERNET TO VISIT PORN, FACEBOOK ETC, USE IT TO GET INFO ON IMPORTANT ISSUES. (NIGERIA FOLLOWS FEDERALISM-IS IT A DIVIDED NATION????)

    1. Ndadabwa says:

      You know Malawians do not read – generally. I bet even here on Nyasatimes, a majority just search for headlines with anything north and to them, that is enough to spit on their phones or pc – the now very familiar adjectives – wozikonda, onyasa, akuda bii, atumbuka, athamangisidwe, ku thengere etc etc.

      If only Zodiak and other independent radios could take on discussions on federalism, it ay help many to comprehend federalism and how it can fit in in Malawi. Dr. Bina Shaba, Hons Mzomela Ngwria,, Harry Mkandawire, Frank Mwenefumbo, Enoch Chihana, FOND please enlist the support of the radios as a a first step.

    Can anyone tell me what are the benefits of Malawi remaining a United country.

    Malawi is a failed state. It relies heavily on AID donation for it to survive

    It has the highest rate of people living with HIV AIDS in the world

    It has the highest rate of people living in poverty in the world

    It has the highest rate of maternity death in the world

    It fails dismally to educate its children.

    As a chewa, I completely support calls for secession from this failed state. I think we can do better than the Southerners.

  122. kkkkkkkkk These two legislators a very funny. They have been praying for an arrest in order to get international sympathy. I would advise the Government just to forget about them. They are, but empty tins. Just look at their faces, you do not need to be a psychologist to see traits of dullness.

    I feel very pitty for PP Supporters. Their party has been hijacked by a few Tumbukas, because of Amay'”s shalloe-mindedness. Look at the walk out in Parliament yesterday ????Maulidi is a sharp chap. I hope others will follow suit.

    I am but an independent observer !!!

  123. Mwikhoko says:

Expressing their dissatisfaction about the previous government and the new government is not something new. What are you afraid of Mutharika? Referendum is the only option. In order to silence these two let the people of the north decide through a ballot box. Jail term will not silence them. In fact if they are arrested it would mean that they are standing for the truth. Truth hurts. Donot misuse state machinery to scare people.

  132. Jendayekha says:

    The primitive tactics of intimidation, stupidity and arrogance of the DPP is back, how sad. One step forward two steps backwards cry my beloved country. Multiparty is war, Federalism is war, god help these semi-educated creatures to understand that the wishes of northerners on federalism will be achieved whether one likes or not . Try to arrest any northerner you will never extinguish the fire, enough is enough to tribalistic stupid leadership in 21 century.

  136. Kadakwiza says:

  137. Makito says:

    You know good people, all those who are for the yes vote should welcome the arrests, that will be great help for the cause. This is democracy, no matter what their plans are, they cannot bring Malawi back to Kamuzu era. Bingu failed, he collapsed dead instead.

    So DPP is taking the silence of most northeners for granted, invade us with those stupid arrests and see how we will react. To be rearistic, this is not the way we expect DPP to accomodate federal calls. Dpp and vuwa kaunda should not behave as if federal calls lack basis. The solution to these calls is to call for a round table discussion with the proponents and not what these fellas are doing.

    dont say we from the Central talk of your self we dont have a spokesperson. ngati muli mfundo kukambirana momveka osati using bad words.

  169. The Congress of Nyika People had warned before this news broke to the public that there is a plot by the trabalist fundamentalist mulhako dominated government to arrest, rape, torture, and kill the people of Nyika. I call upon all the people of Nyika everywhere in the world to support the armed struggle. We will have a website where donations will be asked to buy arms to free our Motherland. The time to talk to this tribalist government is over—-it is the time to engage the enemy with the armed struggle, the language that they understand. Ngwira and Mukandaweri you will not walk alone in this struggle because the people of Nyika are with you all the way until our people are free from the bondage of slavery. We will not surrender our Motherland to the invaders. The struggle must continue for the sake of our children and great great grandchildren. I’m so excited that very soon we will be free from all the isms that we have suffered from this evil Mulhako dominated government. I don’t know whether the Center want to be dominated by one tribe, but it is time for the Center to make its mind now rather than later. We a not scared of those police because we will smoke them out with everything we have at our disposal. We shall never surrender. ALLUTA CONTINUA UNTIL OUR BELOVED NYIKA IS FREE. PAMBELI NE NYIKA!!!!!!!!!1

  170. Mbuya says:

    What lessons have you learned from Scotland, you noisy northerners?

  171. Inu says:

    No an arrest will be totally wrong. I know this is a make up story just to gain sympathy for their campaign. Maybe not getting enough support? Some other guys chickening out?

    We the people of the central region are ready to let the people of the north go! You do not force someone to stay with you that will be abuse of trust. Let these people go so that we focus on something else.

    1. GULEKWAWO says:

      Ife Apakati Pano DPP Totooo Inatibera Vote Yathu abweze kaye voteyo Ndee Eeeee Tigwilizana Apo bii GULEKWAWO !!!

    2. Makito says:

      You are a liar inu, you are not even from the centre.

    3. We of the Central Region? Fool. Who told you Central Region is against Federalism or Secession? You are a Southerner thinking CR is with you. We are with Northerners if you don’t know.

      1. kamunthu says:

        Both of you can’t speak for the central region. I am from the so called central region but I am mor Malawian than Central. I can never side with north, central or south. I side with Malawi always!! NO to federalism or seccession. YES to Malawi!!!

    4. johnM says:

      It seems you have been brainwashed by the southerners and you actually believe in this fake unity. For your information, I am also from the Central Region and if anything, I am in favour of secession much more than the Northerners. In the last twenty years, the Southerners have discriminated against the people from the Central more than even those from the South yet it the Central region which is the engine of the Malawian economy. If we get independence we will be far much better off than we are now. No one ever wants someone else to determine his or her destiny.

    5. ndakwiya says:

      You should indeed leave us alone. North Malawi will always beat you in terms of football, education, creativity, development just to mention but a few should we succeed with this plan. Fotseki!!!

  172. Mauapaseli says:

    This government won’t last if it effects these arrests!….that will be the shortest rule in history!

    1. Titi agheri says:

      U never know a prophesy is already in southern africa countries. Can we challenge the prophet by committing ourselves into prayers so dat God should 4 give us. Otherwise we gonna loose our dear officials

  173. malawi young says:

    Makape aku north bvuto lao ndi chani, tiwa panga depotitu ife za chamba eti. Kuma wona ngati ndiku kaya kuno, musama yankhule muta khuta mtonjani kapena chamba. And azicomenta atumbuka osamba okha okaha osati mtumbuka wina aliyensei

    1. Hzwyzj says:

      Choka malawi young boma lakolo likamanga awo sikuti zathera pomwepo ayi tilipo ambiri ndiponso mkuwopa chiyani mmesa mmati simtifuna akumpoto. Arrests will make the situation worse. Tatopa nayo mlomwe walitata uyo.

  174. Nyondo says:

    Go ahead with your plan and you will not know what hit you. We are watching. Just let the north be semi-autonomous. This fight will go all the way.

  175. This will ignite more confusion. Why not just engage them in dialogue & find out what their problems are? Government has totally lost direction. This will actulise the federal call. Remember the beginning of multiparty in the country. We realiy have no president who could quench trouble at the base. We shall remember Bakili Muluzi who had knowledge to bring Malawians together.

  176. hall says:

    what is needed to understand their problem and sort it out . not arrests
    haswel

  177. Wasinga says:

    Atifwengi ngati mmukulu wakhe. We are behind you guys. Enough is enoughooooo

  178. bongololo says:

    Don’t be naive, behave like David Cameron by calling for a national referendum. By arresting them, you will only fuel anger among the northerners and allow the matter to gain momentum. It’s yesterday Scotland held their referendum to vote for independence, – you know know the result. This has vindicated the British Prime Minister who argued that the UK is better together than disintegraate it and Salmond is now silent and no doubt his political career has been bruised – if he continues to lead the Scottish National Party, he must count himslef lucky, otherwise he will be forced to resign for misleading the Scots. If Mutharika calls for a referendum, I can assure you, the same will be the case with these guys and the President will earn international reputation as a true democrat. Let us have a “National” referendun in 2016.

    1. duduzi says:

      CORRECTION; Since your example has been Scotland in UK, then the referendum has to be conducted in the North Iin Malawi so that Northerners can decide and not the whole country just as Scottish citizens only voted to decide.

  179. MKWAPU says:

    LET THEM AND SEE
    BINGU TRIED AND FAILED PAGONACHI APA!!

  180. ACHEWA says:

    Welcome arrests for the good of all Malawians. Kikwete wants the Northern part ironically the Lake full of fuel deposits.

  181. Bodza la n'nanu says:

    Did the UK govt arrest the Scottish first minister or any of the SNP members who were advocating and later campaigned for Scottish independence? Referendum was agreed, through peoples democratic right, the Scotts voted yesterday. The first minister has accepted the results that the majority have voted against No guns, no war, no deaths, no charges, no imprisonments, now dismissals, no vindications, Malawi govt, learn from others please.

    1. Malawiana says:

      Good example. I hope they will dare arrest Kazombo as well and if so, kukhala kanthu kokanthula nsizasi dala!

  182. Andrew mhone says:

    You will have to arrest us all, one way or the other we will have what we want

  183. Master says:

    govt be serious if southerners think they can do without north, u should have left these guys to do what they want, and secede, arresting them shows that north remains an important part that u cant live without, north needs independence, why are u very much worried that tnorth wants to be a stand alone country?????????????????? why???? this will bring more bloodshed, remember what happened on 20th july???? how long did bingu live their after??? he just lived for 5 months then he died, peter is following the footsteps of his brother, ur downfall!!!!!!!

  184. Jabulosi says:

    DARE DO IT!!! PEOPLE FROM NORTH ARE NOT COWARDS. THEY HAVE ENDURED SUCH CONDUCTS SINCE COLONIAL DAYS!!! GOVT. COULD BE IN FOR MORE TROUBLE.DO NOT FORGET CARDIAC ARREST!!!

  185. Wasinga says:

    Why arresting them. He has started where his brother left. The dictator has started to silence his critics. Chizeleza chomeni icho.

  186. MAMA says:

    If the proposed Arrests are true / They Will bring more fire From the North as well the Central !! Just Call For a refferendum and have the views of the people !!

    1. Inu says:

      Don’t include us people from the centre. We are not party to your struggle. Who told you that we are happy with what you do?

      1. duduzi says:

        Inu

        We know that people of the Central Region are very happy with the current government and do not mind being second class citizens and picking bread pieces from under the tables of the Lomwes.

        Remember Chewas of the Central Region, the South will win the next general elections with Atupele as a VP and then the next one with Atupele ruling for 10years then Duwa and the sons of Peter will come again….so forget about thinking that when the North leaves you will be comfortable…….’PLEASE OPEN YOUR EYES AND SEE THROUGH GULE WAMKULU ZIGOBAZO OR PERISH!’

      2. Prophet Mai Mai says:

        People from the centre do not matter in this matter. You are like embiciles. Thats why despite your huge numbers you still have no balls and you say,,,”hey Mr Peter Mathanyula, can you fuck us again!!!”

  187. CONGO MAFIA says:

    Silly move. If you think you can silence the wind of change by arresting two people out of a million plus then you dont know how politics work. Just try it and you will how many followers are behind the movement.

  188. Thumbwefu says:

    IF THEY DO SO, THE ISSUE WILL BE BRON OUT OF PROPOTION. THAT WILL BE LIKE ADD PAIN TO INJURY. NDIYE KUTI AKUWAPUTA ANTHU AKU NORTH.

  189. Mphondo says:

    Let them try it, aziwanso kuti mpoto sizocheza, pajatu ife timangoyambisa amamaliza ndi ena.

  190. Nyika Republic says:

    Let them try it and see the outcome,let them come into our territory and see what will happen to them

  191. Onasiwelo says:

    That will be a surprise at all after all, dpp is what they know best. remember what they used to do when bingu, was alive and they will do anything, to silence any body who critise them, what is their problem i mean the dpp and its lomwes, they say people from the north are useless, north is dead, they can do nothing now people from the north want to be on their own let them be full stop un less you say the Lomwes want to use and abuse and dump them other wise I would say let the North be on its own and leave them in peace they do not want you neither do southerners want the northerners as well.

  192. Osward says:

    Arresting them is pouring fuel over fire. Please think first before you act. We want peace and you know that violence breeds violence,

  193. arrest them and we will join them and the fight will gain ground!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! peter just try
