UTM’s Kabwila arrested for ‘inciting violence and intimidating judges’

Malawi police on Saturday arrested former Salima North West legislator Jessie Kabwila, who ditched main opposition Malawi Congress Party (MCP) to join UTM, on allegations of inciting violence and intimidating judges in the ongoing presidential election petition case.

Kabwila: In the cooler

Police confirmed Kabwila was arrested following remarks she is alleged to have made on Thursday during  demonstrations against the Police.

Kabwila reportedly warned to deal with Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) Chairperson Jane Ansah, and those protecting her.

She also warned to deal with judges should judgment in the presidential elections case favour the ruling party.

The Constitutional Court has until February to determine the case in which Malawi Congress Party (MCP) president Lazarus Chakwera and UTM Party’s Saulos Chilima are disputing the President Peter Mutharika re-election in May 2019 polls.

Nowhere, repeat Nowhere can the Justice System allow especially Judges and prosecutors to be personally intimidated the way Kabwila-Kapasula has done. Crazy! Mommy you are Crazy!
She’s so reckless, and even the desperate UTM should have gotten rid of her, already. Like yesterday. As she has no political capital at all.
Now, her personal judgment is being rightly questioned by her admirers, including former students and the obnoxious anti-Bingu/DPP drum beaters!
She has not yet realized that politics at the national level requires tactics different from those on Campus! Means, probably she’s not capable of growing up, in the broad sense.

Let the law take its course, Kabwira’s
words are so dangerous. You can’t threaten the Judges Jane Ansah is ur fellow woman, she is also working under constitution of Malawi.

Malawi belong to the citizens.

I don’t think whatever Kabwira said could warrant an arrest. Every citizen who wish Malawi better would say that, intimidating opposition people is a bad thing in ademocratic country. What amaze me is that whenever the ruling people does violence acts against the citizens the police doesn’t move quickly to arrest perpetrators, the police will only move quickly to arrest someone from the opposition side.If the judgement favours the ruling party, it will be like you are putting more firewood to the huge 🔥. That country is going to burn.If this is the strategy of the police to start arresting… Read more »
