Mulanje South MP Bon Kalindo has blamed violence that erupted in his constituency on Thursday on the ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP).
The violence erupted when party regional governor Charles Mchacha wanted to address a political rally in the area.
Scores of armed police officers rushed to the area and managed to quell the violence.
Some villagers were however arrested and are being kept at Mulanje Police Station.
Mchacha and his team of regional committee failed to turn up after they were tipped of the violence.
The DPP fired Kalindo from the party after he organised a nude protest in Lilongwe against the killings of people with albinism.
The party structures put by Kalindo were immediately replaced in the constituency.
Kalindo accuses the DPP of promoting violence and reign of terror.
