Two prominent human rights defenders have in the past three weeks found strange messages on their vehicles and houses, a vindication that the Malawi government has secretly drawn a list of Human Rights Defenders whom it will ‘deal’ with before the end of 2012 as NyasaTimes reported earlier.
Nyasa Times revealed that those topping the list are Undule Mwakasungula, Wapona Kita, Unandi Banda, Benedicto Kondowe, Reverend Macdonald Sembereka, Voice Mhone and Rafik Hajat among others.
True to our disclosure, Wapona found a message pasted on the windscreen of his car that read “For sale” with his contact numbers there.
And on Saturday, Mwakasungula also found the same message pasted on the wall of his house.
But Mwakasungula schooled the regime thugs on his Facebook page that if they have issues with him they should face him during the day and not pasted useless messages on his house.
“The message is very clear like the message on Wapona’s car last week. Two strange things in three weeks tell a lot!” Mwakasungula wrote.
He told the ‘regime thugs’ that although they knew his house, he had no intention of moving away.
“Note that I come from Karonga but am a bona fide Malawian. In case you will say I did not caution you,” said Mwakasungula.
