UTM  America wing call for release of outspoken Facebook user in Malawi

In response to the arrest of social media activist and vocal supporter of the United Transformation Movement (UTM)  Manice Hale, popularly known as Manice Abiti William Dawood on Facebook, UTM-USA Diaspora Wing issued a statement condemning the arrest.

The statement jointly signed by interim chairperson Eddie Naming’ona and interim Secretary General Fatima Nkata, states that the primary concern of the wing is the safety of their member and that of her property.

The wing strongly believes that the arrest was “politically motivated” and appeals to the Malawi Government for her immediate release and the safe return of her communications devices which were confiscated upon her arrest.

Manice was taken to Area 30 Police Headquarters in Lilongwe where a crowd of UTM supporters including former First Lady Calista Mutharika has gathered to demand her release.

The crowd was pelted with tear gas by police officers.

Meanwhile, Manice Hale has been taken away by cops from Area 30 to an unknown location.

She has been vocal against the regime in her posts of Facebook.

Manice recently had an interview with Times TV where she said President Peter Mutharika was her uncle but was against his policies.

She came from America to attend UTM rallies in Mzuzu and Mangochi.

Manice was due to fly back to Maryland in US where she works as a nurse on Tuesday before she was picked by police at the airport.

All these Asians, Rwandese and Burundians are having two passports each, even Dr George Chaponda he is still keeping a Green Zambian Registration Card plus a Zambian Passport which shows that he is still a Zambian and a Malawian at the same time. Chaponda is envesting in Zambia where he has bought a mansion using our taxpayers stolen money

Back to Bingu misrule. Ask Rafiq Hajat and McDonald Sembereka Bingu destroyed their compounds by petrol bombing. In the twilight of his rule APM is employing the filthy tactics of silencing his rivals to the state house.Malawians are to give anyone the chance to lead but these uncalled for coincidence of burning UTM vehicles and the arrest of a minion in the UTM setup is the unhealthiest puzzle to ordinary citizens. We can’t look the other way really a painful experience

She is in the wrong: two passports with different nationalities and different names (not just marital) but suspicious names. Amayesa akuchenjera.
