Malawi Police arrest MCP workers in surprise morning swoop

Two Malawi Congress Party (MCP) workers , a guard and a garden boy, at the party headquarters in the capital Lilongwe  have been arrested in a morning swoop.

The bodyguard, Joseph Undi and a garden boy named Harrison Nsalupa are in Police custody at an unknown location.

Party deputy secretary general Eisenhower Mkaka confirmed the police raided the party’s headquarters on Tuesday morning.

He, however, accused the law enforcers of arresting and raiding the party headquarters without a search and arrest warrant.

“Yes its true the police earlier in the day came at the headquarters where they have made some unlawful arrests of our one body guard and a garden boy,” said Mkaka.

“They were arbitrary arrests, politically motivated,” said Mkaka.

The arrest comes barely a week after some guards at the party headquarters beat up lawyer Jolam Mpagaja who had gone there to leave court documents.

He was beaten up to the extent that his underwear could be seen.

Lilongwe police spokeperson Kingsley Dandaula said he was yet to get details on the matter.

The law should never be selective!! By this time if they gave a progress report as regards the status of hunting for the alleged culprits,… Read more »

No wonder Chakwera loves this Mkaka dude. He is such a fool! Who told him that the arrests were arbitrary and politically motivated? Doesnt he know that a lawyer was beaten by these thugs when he went to serve letters on his master and the party?

And besides, MCP pipo should be the last to complain about arrests without warrant because they didnt stop at just arresting without warrant but they went on to stage accidents for those arbitrarily arrested or fed them to crocodiles.

Those who seek protection of the law must be the first to abide by the law so the saying goes.
The law officer sent to deliver court documents at MCP offices, was beaten , stripped naked…….
Some would say you asked for it.

so MCP you are not accepting that beating a person is a crime in Malawi? Why rushing everything to politically motivated? Being in opposition does not mean being immune to prosecution. Kung’amba court document and beating a server mukuona ngati Malawi azingiyang’ana? Chakwera cannot be arrested he is just a sleeping dog. Bola kumanga Msonda. Wake up MCP. Dont fool yourself Chakwera will never rule Malawi. Mukhaula 2019 DPP Woyeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee
