Uladi brands Kapito ‘attention seeker’: Malawi consumer activist claims death threats

Home Affairs and Internal Security Minister Uladi Mussa has said government doesn’t have a grudge against consumer rights advocate John Kapito who claims he’s been receiving death threats.

Mussa said “Kapito’s claims are questionable. Some of these things are not true. Why did he not report to police and give us the numbers of those who issued the death threats?

“If he has concrete evidence, he should go to police. We’ve a skilled intelligence unit which can trace everyone’s number wherever they are,” said Mussa in an interview monitored on Zodiak Broadcasting Station (ZBS).

Kapito, who has accused President Joyce Banda of creating “artificial” maize shortage in the country, says he didn’t report the matter because police have never assisted him.

But Mussa said Kapito always make “unnecessary noise” through the media to get public attention on petty issues.

“If anything, Mr. Kapito should’ve been the first to praise the current administration for the progress we’ve made so far. You know how the economy was and how things have changed now,” he added.

“This is a peaceful time: people, journalists and parties are living in peace. People used to be arrested for holding rallies. Everyone is free now,” he said.
