Peoples Party (PP) Secretary General y Ibrahim Matola is receiving death threats from anonymous elements following President Peter Mutharika’s public threat to deal with him for criticizing his governing policies.
Mutharika last Sunday mentioned Matola as one of the opposition members whom he said castigated him through a Tiuzeni Zoona program which was aired on Zodiak Radio .
“I was not aware of what he said up until someone brought me a recorded interview where Matola castigated me but, it’s quite unfortunate and my government will not tolerate that”, said Mutharika.
Matola said he has since been receiving threats that he will be dealt with be it a car “accident” or other means.
The PP secretary general a said whatever happens to him Mutharika will be accountable.
“I would like to let Malawians know that if I disappear killed in whatever way, then the President is liable,” Matola said.
Matola defended his interview on radio, saying he was “highlighting challenges” currently facing Malawians like the looming hunger, lack of security, lack of drugs in hospitals.
“And someone says I was wrong for stating these challenges. Mind you there are serious lapses in security under the DPP government and people are dying like chicken, If I die today just know that it is this government”, said Matola.
