Malawi Police raid homes of opposition leader Chakwera’s body guards, arrest 2

Malawi Police on Thursday arrested two body guards of Leader of Opposition Lazarus Chakwera after a raid on their homes following reports they had guns.

Chakwera: Security detail searched

The two body guards were later released after no guns were found after a thorough search in their homes.

Acting spokesperson for the Malawi Congress Party (MCP), Eisenhower Mkaka described the whole move as political persecution of Chakwera.

“The government is doing all it can to scare the opposition, to silence Dr Chakwera so that he stops criticising the government,” said Mkaka.

He said 20 police officers raided the homes of the two unidentified body guards for Chakwera in the morning and 15 armed to teeth officers raided the homes again in the afternoon.

Mkaka said the party would be taking action against the police for raiding the houses without a search warrant.

Police spokesperson at police headquarters James Kadadzera feigned ignorance on the matter, saying he did not know this happened.

    Poor man malawi ruled by clueless, corrupt, mafias etc. The whole cabinet is corrupt, its just amatter of time for the fire they use to hide the facts will burn them. Malawi does not belong to lomwes but all those who live in it. Many good men want to develop malawi eradicate poverty, but dpp is busy destroying malawi with corruption. Tribalistics politics got no place in malawi. MPs its your job to empeach or fire aclueless corrupt president peter wamunthalika. Otherwise 2019 malawi faces tribal war. People are tired of dpp shit politics.

    Abale, do you honestly believe the police, ACB, oDPP, Assets Declaration, NAO, Ministers, Boards, CEO’s of government companies etc, etc can apply their knowledge to get things done? Police actions on Chakwera bodyguards, Uladi Musa are on instructions from DPP rough necks and, docile as he is, APM cannot do a thing. Poor Arthur.

    Malawi kulamulidwa ndi agalu. Dziko lomvetsa chisoni. Apolisi kumangotumidwa ndi andale wopanda masomphenya ngati a DPP mmalo mothana ndi anthu woba ndalama zaboma. Kukanika kummanga Chaponda amene milandu yake yachiwonekele. Dziko lino lafika ponyasa. Palibe chowoneka chimene DPP ikupanga. Koma mtundu wa chilomwe ndi wa anthu owononga ndi kupha basi. Wochititsa manyazi. Ndipo Peter ndi Chaponda wawonetsera poyera kuti kukhala mlomwe ndi usatana weni weni.

    APOLISI KUSADZIWA NTCHITO YENI YENI YOTI MUGWIRE, KUMANGA CHAPONDA. WHY WASTE FUEL AND ENERGY ON THAT? YOU THINK CHAKWERA IS ALSO KEEPING THUGS LIKE THE DPP CADETS? YOU HAVE TO UNDERSTAND CHAKWERA AS A MAN OF GOD WHO DOES NOT BELIEVE IN GUNS! BWANJI MUKULEPHERA KUMANGA MPOLISI NZANU WAKUBA KU MBALACHANDA KU MZIMBA AMENE ZIKUONEKERATU POYERA UMBAVA WAKO?

    APM should know that if the world has strong minded people, some of them are men of God. They go through a lot in their journey to Priesthood to the extent that using police to intimidate them does not shake them at all. In fact the more you intimidate the more you give them space to speak. So no amount of slander and intimidation will stop Dr Laz from speaking on behalf of Malawians. And seriously government believes Dr Laz is a war monger? I believe there is no better peace loving politician in Malawi than Dr Laz. The only difference is that he fights injustice perpetrated by the corrupt DPP government.

    ng’oooooo agwa nawo. MCP is the oldest party in Malawi with vast knowledge of the law of the country and they thought they don’t know the gun law! Shame on DPP. Zitsiru zakuba

  14. TSOKONOMBWE says:

    Chaponda being Vice president of a Governing party he has powers. He is still influential and playing his games behind the scenes. No wonder some of this things are his revenge tactics. Choti tidziwe mbola yake sinachotsedwe ululu ukupitililabe kukolera.

    1. Munthu wa Mulungu says:

      Interfering with Chakwera’s security detail just shows that government has a snister motive on his (Chakwera’s) life. Heavens are watching you, devils. Muleka ndale chakuda china chikakulumani.
