Police makes another HRDC arrest: Trapence in, Mtambo at large

Malawi police has made a second arrest of Human Rights Defenders Coalition (HRDC) vice chairpersons Gift Trapence who joins executive member Reverend Macdonald Sembereka in custody barely hours after President Peter Mutharika warned at a political rally in Blantyre that he will deal with the grouping for their plans to make Malawi ungovernable.

Trapence: In custody

HRDC spokesperson Luke Tembo has confirmed that Trapence and Sembereka have been picked by police.

Tembo said the law enforcement agency is still looking for HRDC chairperson Timothy Mtambo who is reporting at large.

According to Tembo there are no charges yet but he has received information that police are planning to transfer the two to Blantyre.

The arrest comes after HRDC announced to stage protests at State House.

At the rally in Blantyre  President Mutharika challenged HRDC members not to dare come close to the State House on May 25, 2020.

He said the police will deal with them if they dare.

Mutharika said HRDC chairperson Mtambo and other members Trapence, Sembereka and Billy Mayaya are not bigger than government.

“Be warned, your time is up, the party is over, get up and smell the coffee,” Mutharika charged.

Don’t lie that you are looking for mtambo as if he’s a thief hiding. If you really need to arrest him you know where to find mtambo just like you arrested two of [email protected] # politics. You don’t wanna be exposed of the spies keeping in the country. Them the hrdc will fight a battle until things goes on its right ways in Malawi . Peter Mutharika is a dictator who wants to meet his needs to tooth and nail. This kingdom of Mutharikas/muluzis must fall.

You can’t compare Kagame with Muntharika. If the president does what the NATION wants, then people of the nation respect the president too.
Muntharika is too far or behind from KAGAME. KAGAME brought big progress in Rwanda , he listen to people’s needs not his self needs like Muntharika. Go to Rwanda n witness ua self. Rwanda is nt like in Africa, the country which suffered so long bcoz of war. SHAME TO UA READER MUNTHARIKA
