Former president Bakili Muluzi has said that he does not own any page on Facebook and disowned the page called ‘Bakili Muluzi news’.
The former President warned whoever was administering the page with his name to desist from it adding that the necessary security agencies had been informed and would fish out the perpetrators.
“The office of the Former President is reminding the public and all Facebook users that His Excellency or his office does not have a Facebook account or page.
“Any Facebook page or account bearing names of the Former President or his pictures is bogus and is run by individuals whose agenda is no way connected to that of Dr. Muluzi,” a statement from Muluzi emailed to Nyasa Times reads.
Muluzi said members of the public are therefore being urged to be on the lookout and “disregard any publication from the page in question.”
The public is further being urged to report such bogus pages to Facebook and other relevant authorities to avoid being defrauded by the criminals.
“The office of the Former President strongly condemns and warns the criminals managing this account that investigating agencies in conjunction with law enforcement agencies are seriously hunting for them and that once apprehended they will face the law,” the statement added.
Muluzi governed Malawi from 1994 to 2004.
