Malawi Police Service are looking for Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) roughneck Alex Mawaya and a gang of some cadets who punched DPP spokesperson Brown Mpinganjira and harassed other party governing council officials on Friday in Lilongwe.
Mawaya and other roughnecks were captured on television cameras storming a press conference room where Mpinganjira, party administrative secretary Francis Mphepo and director of Legal Affairs in DPP Charles Mhango were holding a press conference.
Mawaya is seen punching Mpinganjira mercilessly as Mphepo and Mhone flee the hotel room along with some journalists barely three minutes into the press conference was being held.
Mawaya was with 15 other roughnecks.
One of the roughnecks put on a DPP golf shirt with abbreviation KN on it.
Mpinganjira said the roughneck who assaulted him accused the party spokesperson of trying to insult party vice president for the south, Kondwani Nankhumwa.
Nankhumwa has since distanced himself from the political violence and condemned the assault of the DPP officials.
