Two Malawi Congress Party (MCP) workers , a guard and a garden boy, at the party headquarters in the capital Lilongwe have been arrested in a morning swoop.
The bodyguard, Joseph Undi and a garden boy named Harrison Nsalupa are in Police custody at an unknown location.
Party deputy secretary general Eisenhower Mkaka confirmed the police raided the party’s headquarters on Tuesday morning.
He, however, accused the law enforcers of arresting and raiding the party headquarters without a search and arrest warrant.
“Yes its true the police earlier in the day came at the headquarters where they have made some unlawful arrests of our one body guard and a garden boy,” said Mkaka.
“They were arbitrary arrests, politically motivated,” said Mkaka.
The arrest comes barely a week after some guards at the party headquarters beat up lawyer Jolam Mpagaja who had gone there to leave court documents.
He was beaten up to the extent that his underwear could be seen.
Lilongwe police spokeperson Kingsley Dandaula said he was yet to get details on the matter.
