Thats Malawi police for you, working hard to find reasons to arrest opposition members.

Meanwhile the DPP cadets can drive around in unregistered vehicles, attack people in broad daylight right in front of the police and break every law that they want.

Lets vote these people out before they kill us all. Your children depend on it.
