Malawi Police arrest singer for producing song provoking Muslims

Malawi Police Service  have arrested a local musician identified as Mesho for composing, producing and distribution of a “blasphemous”song likely to cause breach of peace.

The arrested singer

In the song, the artist questions why Madrassah’s [a Muslim school, college, or university that is often part of a mosque] were introduced and why Muslims don’t eat Pork.

He further demands the demolition of all mosques in Malawi and let everyone eat pork freely.

In the song, the little known singer has also attacked some Christians beliefs.

Police National Spokesperson James Kadadzera confirmed the arrest of the artist to Nyasa Times on Saturday afternoon.

“It is true that the artist behind disturbing songs perpetrating violence among religious and ethnic groups has been arrested by our [officers]  in Mulanje,” said Kadadzera.

The National Police Publicist said the full particulars of the suspect are Anderson Alfred Chipwaila aged 29.

He hails from Binali Village in the Area of Traditional Authority Nkanda in the Southern District of Mulanje where his arrest was made.

“We netted him at Mathambi Trading Centre  in Mulanje and is currently being interviewed by our detectives” Kadadzera said.

He said the singer will appear before court soon where he is likely to answer a charge of inciting violence.

A CENSPRSHIP BOARD its your duty…..zisalowe ndale….the guy may have erred but the reaction of the fanatics have stirred pipos feelings to the extent that they are starting to defend the boy in christian solidarity because the moslems have attacked the christians as a whole

Have listened to his song. And my assumption is that this guy is ignorant. Hence his questions. So just get him a pastor from Seventh Day Church and a Moslem Shelk to address his questions with references from the Bible or Quran ! You never know he might even convert to their religions if he is not already saved. Let God judge him if he has sinned. Komano pali ma Shelk ena amadya nyama ya Nkhumba mobisa. why? imakoma kaya. maka yowotcha.

It just shows that you like calling muslims foregners.Muslims just like any citizen must enjoy the freedom of worship enshrined in republican constitution..You want to start giving muslims names like militant muslims instead of faulting the ones who is trying to incite violence.It is right and proper to arrest such an idiot.We will wait and what will happen.Bravo law enforcers

Our dear Moslem brothers and sisters spend all their energy, time and resources including their precious lives defending religion instead of seeking salvation. So sad
