Tampering and removing some features on Ulemu Msungama’s phone in a disguised on-going investigation is what police in Malawi have done to one of the victims of last week’s arrests of some opposition leaders.

This development sounds more savagery and dictatorial the fact that the information in Ulemu’s phone was not only related to Whatsapp discussion about the condition of Malawi under that inept president Peter Mutharika but also his day to day business.

It is not clear why the police went to the extent of damaging Ulemu’s phone if they have a strong monitoring machine and spy group under NIB.

By removing all passwords, the police mean to leave Ulemu’s phone unsecured which leaves it open for anyone to use. In addition police have installed new whatsapp without the owner’s permission.

It is important to note that such an act tantamount to infringement on someone’s privacy when police collect, store, retrieve or organize data.

Malawi is yet to be clarified on this activity which is against principles with which people must comply or an Act which is applicable even to online activities.

Placing someone’s gadget on Access Control List with intent to monitor it without the owner’s consent is a crime in itself because you are telling Ulemu that Malawi is a police state.

At all cost such activities are not acceptable in a democratic nation and must stop. This insecurity of the state president has surfaced recently with public awareness of nonfunctioning presidential office.
