Kunje spends night in police custody, to apply court bail

Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) Commissioner Linda Kunje  who handed  herself to  Eastern Region police headquarters in Zomba on Monday will on Tuesday appear before  the Zomba Magistrate Court to be formally charged with an offence of ‘conduct likely to cause breach of peace’

Kunje surrendered herself to Zomba police

Kunje, a Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) – sponsored MEC commissioner,  spent last night in police custody after she went to police following media reports that police were hunting for her.

She is being accused of defying orders to give way to a presidential convoy in Zomba  last Thursday where President Lazarus Chakwera was coming from a University of Malawi graduation ceremony.

Her lawyer Chimwemwe Kalua who escorted the MEC Commissioner to police said: “ She is expected to appear before the court on Tuesday for bail hearing.”

Kalua said Police have asked for more time to conclude their investigations.

Kunje sould have been judged by Viva Nyimba in Lilongwe who is not abiding the nonsense. Please teach these people a very good lesson pamozi ndi amuna wakewo Kunjeyo. This is treason case and send the matter to High Court and if the two want bail let them ask for it there, very dull minded people. OSATSUTSANA BWANJI.even driver is for DPP party.TAGWIDZINGANI ANTHU WO PLEASE.

‘The problem we people have is we respect more on presidents other than God Himself, let us know that God is much more worthier than Chakwera but we used to praise politicians WHY?

I dont see anything wrong here coz Chakwera himself pronounced earlier that he dont need people to panic when he is passing on roads so we have to put things in the way we said before

To begin with, this unlawful encounter with the presidential convoy could have been easily avoided, arrogance took the centre stage. Court proceeding are very exhaustive, time consuming and stressful. Think about your driver, tormented like that in a court room during cross-examination. You gave him the order not to stop when he was supposed to. Violating the high way code. Shame!

Chakwera is already wielding excessive power there. Mr Siku transport polani moto ili ndidziko, mphamvuzo tsiku lina zidzatha .

This lawyer wants money only from Kunje. This is automatic that Kunje is wrong and the Police need to punish her so that she should not repeat the same mistake. I am a DPP member but cannot disrespect any chosen leader by the majority.Linda needs a good lesson infact.

Rambo kunje was not driving the car and Kunje was not the one who obtained a licence to drive where one is taught hugh way code before being given licence The arrest of Kunje is an after thought which has been forced by Chumwendi Banda the offence was committed on the road and they should have arrested her same day and impound the vehicle as they do with other traffic offensera after all Chakwea said he di3s bot want businesses to suffer because he is passing

There is nothing you have said hear and seems you are born today 5am. Any driver gets instructions from his boss and the Police are very to lock them up and should pay heavily or send them to prison. The woman is too rude.No any business suffered and ungobwetuka iweyo.

The woman fears nobody in this country even her boss at Mec cannot talk nonsense in her presence. Time and again they have quashed the boss decision and take what Jean says because she too is called a doctor. Mec boss is in trouble with Kunje.
