Kabwila blames Mutharika’s party for burning of her car:  Regime thugs

Spokesperson of Malawi Congress Party (MCP) Jessies Kabwila says she suspects President Peter Mutharika’s party cadres are behind the burning of her car on Wednesday evening.

Kabwila: DPP cadets

Kabwila says DPP cadets accused her of sponsoring Chancellor College demonstrations.She denies having a hand in that.

“It is the DPP cadets involved,” Kabwila said.

“Blaming it on MCP is utterly wrong,”  the Salima North West Member of Parliament (MP)said.

In an interview, Kabwila said she went into hiding on Monday and Tuesday after she was tipped by well wishers that she was to be killed by DPP operatives because she was allegedly sponsoring protests at Chancellor College.

“They were literally hunting for me but I have nothing to do with the protests,” she said.

She said the DPP thugs threw a petrol bomb on the driver’s seat side of the Fortuner vehicle, burning it to ashes at Lilongwe Golf Club.

She doubted the police would investigate the matter, saying they might be connected to the matter.

In another interview, Information minister Patricia Kaliati said the Chancellor College protests were sponsored by former President Joyce Banda.

“We know who went to South Africa to get the money, we know who bought the beers for the students, we know who bought them chamba to smoke so that they could be violent,” said Kaliati.

Meanwhile the court has released the three student leaders along with others.

The student leaders have been charged with inciting violence whilst the other students have been charged with conduct likely to cause breach of peace and unlawful assembly.

In a statement, the University of Malawi Council blamed the student leaders for the violent protests.

The council says the whole thing was carefully planned to maximise damage and politicians were involved.

The students blocked the convoy of US vice preSident second lady Jill Biden in Zomba, forcing her to cancel her engagements in Zomba and Machinga and sought refuge at the dilapidted Zomba Eastern region police headquarters along with US ambassador to Malawi Virginia Palmer and Education minister Virginia Palmer, which was an embarrassment to Malawi government.

A Mbonga. A Kabwila week yatha amafuna kuphedwa ndi ma body guards a Chakwera and to day you say its DPP.Please learn to analyse issues properly for justice to prevail. Warning to Kabwila. You have been playing games with your party’s District chairmen secretely to rebel against Chakwera so that your lover Msowoya takes the leadership. But you have been blaming the DPP. Lifikatu la 40. Waiwala kuti mu Parliament some MCP MP for Lilongwe wondered why you are not been taken to court for by Government for your treason case. What did that mean coming from your party members.

The reporter forgot some issues here, our good mother was in hiding after being tipped kuti aphedwa nd DPP. Is Lilongwe golf club a hiding place? She was attending to a meeting, who were the attendees of this meeting, the agenda? Was it a family, party or any other meeting? Let’s not blame others for the sake of blaming. What was the atmosphere at that meeting. Those are some of the issues we should be told for us to know who to blame.

@Mbonga: Why do say Lilongwe golf club not a hiding place? Why? If you say she was attending to a meeting, how do you know that?

You seem to have played a hand or else you are among those salivating for her life! Seriously if the Golf Club can not constitute a hiding place, umafuna alowe pansi kapena kuchipinda kwako? Mwana wa njokaaaaaaaaaaaaa iwe!!

THIS IS OBVIOUS, DDP WANTS TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF MCP WRANGLESTO DESTROY MCP AND CLAIM THIS IS THE RESULT OF INFIGHTING. ANY SENSIBLE PERSON CAN SEE THAT THIS IS THE WORK OF A PERSON WHO WANTS TO DESTROY MCP. EVEN THOSE PEOPLE WE SEE ON MBC TALKING ILL ABOUT MCP ARE SPONSORED BY STATE TO DO THAT. THIS IS NOT NEW.

The clock is ticking and it won’t be long before the sponsors are finally called or rounded-up to justify their crude manipulation of jungle politics. If anything, the assertions from Kaliati originates from those who were sent to cause mayhem and statements under oath were made. Let us wait and see where all this will lead to.
