Louisa Kabwila, a final year student at Kenyan university was told in a  a letter dated 2 March, 2016, signed by Brian Ng’oma on behalf of the Secretary of Foreign Affairs, Dalitso  Kabambe, about the termination of her internship.

“I regret to inform you that due to limited office space in some of our departments where you also supposed to be attached to, we have decided to terminate your internship, Your last day of internship will be therefore Friday 4 March, 2016.” reads the letter in part.

Louisa Kabwira joined the Ministry as an academic intern in January this year.

“I am so certain this is part of political harassment and persecution that the government is subjecting members of the opposition and those critical to President Peter Mutharika,” said Kabwila.letter on KabwilaKabwila ecently called upon President Mutharika to resign from power for failing to run the country.

Soon after the statement, Kabwira was arrested and charged with treason.

“These people are victimising my daughter because of the pressure  I have given them on food crisis and failure to run the country,” said Kabwila.

She added: “The Mutharika government continue to punish me and my family for political issues.”

Kabwila said government wants to use all intimidation and harassment tactics to ensure it does not get the checks and balances from the opposition.

“All they are doing is to frustrate me.Attacking my daughter is crossing the line. They can arrest me and do all they can but not on my daughter and family. That is declaration of war and I will not take it lying down,” said Kabwila.

“They want to scare us and run government without any scrutiny from opposition [and even the media as well as civil society],” she said.

How is internship related to APM? How can you link everything to APM? Many students have been denied internship in Government for one reason or another. Should we all attribute this to APM?

I believe Officials from the Ministry are not aware that Jessie’s child is a daughter to young Mwanamveka. mwanayu ndiwakwathu Ku Chiradzulu and terminating her internership is persecuting our own Lomwe children
