Police arrest chief DPP cadet over theft: Granted bail
Malawi Police in Blantyre have arrested opposition Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) director of youth for the south Yona Mlotha in connection to theft and malicious damage that took place in 2019.
Southern police spokesperson Ramsy Mushani confirmed Mlotha has been arrested and later released on bail.
“He will is answering some questions on some crimes,” said Mushani.
His arrest comes a day after police in Luchenza netted 14 cadets of what is called DPP super 16, an elite security of the party which acted as the party’s militia group and usually was sent on mission to terrorise those who were then in opposition, the Malawi Congress Party and UTM.
Police have arrested several DPP officials since the party lost the June 23 election.
Don’t just arrest, investigate properly and charge (sentence) them. We only hear of arrests and no sentences
Nothing political here but rather justice. NYEKHWE.
Enawo munguwasiya. Their arrests will not add value to the process of reconciliation. Kufunika kungowaitana pamodzi ndipo a Senior Police Officer to address them. Tell them all what these cadets were doing were wrong and could be jailed. However they should be warned against repeating the same felonies
Fokofu. Amangidwe basi. Pilizoni kudzadza DPP chisankhoo cha ma MP chikubwerachi DPP izawina mma prison
We dont need any reconciliation with thieves and thugs! Any crime committed has to have a payday! Its payday for the DPP cadets…they deserve to be paid handsomely for the job well down during the DPP era! Its not fair not to pay them…people will not learn!!
Arrest more of these cadets please .
The political prosecution continues whilst key issues are not being attended to by the TONSE coalition. Very SAD.
Muchila,this is called justice.
Its like complaining that we are eating breakfast, lunch and dinner a very day. You need to eat to live.
These are the key issues.Which key issues do you want?
Since when has arresting thieves and corrupt people become political persecution?? Please dont volunteer your ignorance here!
