Uladi says PP will not be intimidated with ‘politically motivated’ arrests

Opposition  People’s Party (PP)  president Uladi Mussa has told parliament that the recent  spate of arrests on PP members was meant to intimidate the party.

Uladi: PP know that the arrests are political motivated but we will not be intimidated

“We will never be intimidated,” he challenged.

He was referring to the arrest of Cecelia Kumpukwe, sister to former president Joyce Banda and others on allegations that they fabricated a resignation letter for vice president Saulos Chilima.

“What can we gain from the resignation of the vice president? Nothing. We can gain something only if the President resigns,” he said.

He also condemned his own arrest by the graft busting body, the Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB).

Mussa described this as mere political intimidation.

But Home Affairs minister Grace Chiumia said on a point of order that Mussa was arrested for flouting citizenship issuance procedures after he naturalised a foreigner just a week after the foreigner entered into the country.

But Mussa said the government should have arrested former Agricuture minister George Chaponda who was faulted on corruption by two state inquiries.

Mussa also wonderedd why the government is failing to conclude or make head ways in the investigations of Polytechnic student Robert Chasowa and ACB official Issah Njauju.

This how Malawians spend their time , they have nothing developmental to talk about but finger pointing. that’s what they are good at.. you gain nothing by the dead people they are gone and you will find them. Parliament is not a house to advance political agendas or shedding political tears. lets focus on developmental issues

The challenge is majoring of our politicians are not God fearing. They can kill, steal and destroy because they are agents of the evil one. What shall man benefit after gaining the whole world and loses his own soul? A gentle reminder to politicians most of whom believe that money and power is the way to go, the Prince of Peace is coming so near. You will run but you shall never hide because he is Omni-potent. I am talking to you politicians. You have the opportunity to start all over again with Christ. Confess your sinful nature and God… Read more »
