Police arrest MCP’s ex-MP after criticising Malawi leader Chakwera

Malawi Police in Lilongwe have arrested former Malawi Congress Party (MCP) member of Parliament for Kasungu West Alex Major after he  challenged President Lazarus Chakwera to make some changes in how he is governing the country including firing some officials at State House and Secretary to President and Cabinet.

Alex Major arrested for challenging the MCP leadership

Major has confirmed that he was summoned to  police at its national headquarters in Area 30 before he was taken to Lingadzi police station where he is being kept.

Police has not told him reasons for his arrest but officers are getting political orders for his detention.

Major said  he suspects his arrest has to do with a statement he authored  on Thursday, February 11, 2021, as the publicity secretary of concerned members of MCP known as  “Second Liberation of Malawi Nation”.

The grouping has demanded the  firing of Secretary to the Cabinet  MZangazanga Chikhosi, reshuffling the cabinet, review some of top government appointments and recall all diplomats and  calls for genuine fight of corruption which is endemic in the current government.

National police spokesperson, James Kadadzera, has asked for more time before commenting.

Major’s lawyer Sylvester  Ayuba James has also confirmed the arrest saying the police are yet to record a statement.

And which was the first liberation if I may ask? Ya satana Kamuzu? Why didn’t you liberate us from dictator Kamuzu and the other fools that followed? Unakayelekeza nthawi ya Kamuzu anakawona nyekhwe yeni yeni from akayombe, a youth ndi brutal police.

Second liberation of Malawi nation? Nde chani? Kupusa eti. Liberation from who and which liberation do you need beyond the one we have?
Malawi is such a free and liberated country more than majority of countries in the world. We don’t need idiots/dunderheads like yourself.
Go and live in Uganda, China, Russia, Zimbabwe or Bulmer. Mbuzi.

Dr Laz, you have lost your cool. Do not be bitter rather get better. Listen to the voice of reason, and act accordingly when it comes to constructive criticism Baba. Kukhalanso kwa bwanji Nanga kumeneku?
What Mr. Major said started a long time back Ife a UTM tikamapempha ntchito kwa asogoleri athu ine ndinatankhudwaoo kawiri konse ndi anthu osiyana kuti zonse to Chakwera akupanga okha. Ndipo Chala change ndinaika mu chi ink Cha black chi ndunachiyang’ana ndikuchimvera chisoni. Ndinachipepesa kuti PEPA Chala changa ndinakulakwira.
Chilungamotu ndi choti tikukudandaulani Baba tiripo ambiri. Mmasuleni munthu he is a voice of the voiceless.
