Kabwila appears in court Monday as police refuse her bail

Fiery and fierce critic of President Peter Mutharika and his administration, Jessie Kabwila, appears in court on Monday after the police denied her bail on Sunday following her arrest on Saturday night.

Kabwila; No bail

Khwima Chizi, lawyer for the UTM executive member said the police have given no reasons for denying her police bail.

“She will appear before the court tomorrow (Monday) where we will apply for her bail,” said Chizi.

Chizi said the police have since charged her with inciting violence and threatening the judiciary.

Her arrest follows her remarks during the Human Rights Defenders Coalition protests in which she allegedly said the opposition would not accept the election case ruling against them.

APM never threatened the judiciary on the podium like Kabwila did. It is not wrong for APM to say on the podium that he won the election. MEC declared him the winner so until the court declares otherwise, APM won the election and that is why he is State President NOW.

Koma Owen Khamula eh: Why don’t you exactly state what Ms Kabwila said, instead of writing “allegedly” in your last statement? You know exactly what she said! She can’t be allowed to threaten Justice officials like they are her kids! Period. This case is not about academic freedom, and we are not her students at Chanco, to blindly follow her. Moreover, she lost her lighting rod status a while back, already. And it is not up to her lawyers to decide if she has committed any crimes here: The Justice system will do that. Furthermore, it is preposterous for people… Read more »

Last kicks of a dying DPP horse……arresting Kabwira will not intimidate anyone.

Why not arrest the president for his tantrums on podiums that he won the election free and fair when the same is being challenged in court? Is that not inciting violence?

Why not arrest the cadets who hacked mr Mayaya in broad day light during a peaceful demonstration?

Just leave Kabwira alone, she has done nothing wrong. The president himself started it by saying on the podium that he won election and oppositions should just accept the defeat . These words by president can not only be seen as undermining judiciary but also inciting violence as well in the event that the verdict goes in favour of opposition. If Tippex started it then why arresting innocent people?? I think the Muntharika’s family are cased on each second term , remember with your brother Bingu, was not liked by many in his second term and now the same thing… Read more »

Are you the judge why not wait for justice to take its course and determine whether she is innocent or guilty
