Kabwila:  Death threatened
Kabwila: Death threatened

Kabwila, who is also spokeswoman of Malawi Congress Party (MCP), has been the subject of vicious name-calling and death threats on Parliamentary Forum.

In one post on Parliamentary Forum, bearing the number +26588879231 on Monday, bearing the name Mubarak, reads: “MCP wish UDF MPs out of Parliament, Kabwila kwanu adya sadaka pompano.”

However one of the renowned Sheikh Hashim Osman Muhammad said the statement means anything danger can happen to Kabwila.

“The statement is very dangerous anything danger can happen to Kabwila,” said Sheikh Osman.

When contacted Kabwila confirmed having been told about the post in what MCP is treating as a death threat.

“Some friends told me about the post although I haven’t seen it myself,” said Kabwila.

Apparently, suspected gangs have been following Kabwila and acting suspicious.

She confirmed that she is facing “strangers” now and again who are trailing her movements.

MCP believes that these threats cannot be taken lightly.

Kabwila petitioned office of the Speaker to invoke anti-defection law on UDF MPs.

“I don’t have any personal grudges against the UDF MPs but Malawi voted for democracy which requires total constitutional order,” she said.

Kabwila said there is no way the single party can belong to both opposition and Government.

The constitution bars members of parliament from crossing the floor in parliament by joining the party that is different from that which ushered them into parliament.

UDF claims they have not joined DPP but only in a working alliance.

She talks too much but this makes alot of sense. Indeed one day Gods time she will rule Malawi. She is intelligent and talks sense. Gods time is the best time indeed. Amai Olimba mtima kwambiritu awa. She is only doing her work she was voted for. Let her express za mkati mwankati mwake. God look after us all.
