Vice President Saulos Chilima has been arrested at Balaka Police after CID police arrested two of his aides who represented him at Chibanja Cho Ayawo function at Liwonde.

UTM supporters converging at the police station

Chilima handed himself at Balaka Police when he heard that the aides Joshua Valera and Kushi Unyolo were arrested after he sent them to the function to present his gift as he was attending a funeral ceremony for his close friend in Balaka district .

Chilima told Police officials that they should arrest him instead because he is the one who sent them to represent him at the function.

He is meanwhile rocked in a meeting with Balaka Officer in Charge together with some of his aides and lawyers

Meanwhile supporters are converging at Balaka Police Station asking for the release of their leader and the two aides.

Unyolo and Valera were arrested at Chingeni Roadblock after leaving the venue of the function after sensing some danger with DPP operatives.

I think my national vice president needs some civic education in his head. He is just too big than he is supposed to be. When things were okay with your father Muthalika we told you to behave and have rules and laws which is good for everybody. You did the same during elections in Mchinji but you were above the law and now you also want to be above the law. Allow police t do their job. This is about the security of our national president, it would have been the same if you were the one and for it… Read more »

Countrymen, I think that this an abuse of the media and very dangerous to the country at a time when we are gearing towards elections. The article was not worth publishing because it has all signs of fake news or mere heresay. As a reader it is leaving me with more questions than answers on why exactly the police carried out this operation – if indeed they did. Should I really believe that the police arrested a person for merely attending a function? What charges, if any, have been made against these two gentlemen? Did the journalist try to establish… Read more »

The police spokesperson confirmed that they werent sitting down at the function and then decided to leave before the president which made them conclude this was suspicious behaviour worthy of dentention, they actually wanted to transfer them to Zomba prison.

The fact is the Police is led by Mchacha, that itself was reason enough to be concerned in the first place.
