The Malawi Congress Party (MCP) has said DPP’s threats will not stop the opposition from criticising the government as Malawians are suffering because of President Mutharika’s failed leadership.
Speaking in an interview MCP deputy general secretary, Eisenhower Mkaka said the governing DPP childish threats will yield government nothing.
“They are using the Police to stop us from speaking against their failures, but what they must know is that we are not scared and the opposition will not stop criticising government unless it addresses the challenges Malawians are facing,” he said, adding:
“They searched houses of Dr Lazarus Chakwera’s body guards without even having a searching warrant just to inflict fear on the leader of opposition.
“The police who were about 20 did not find the unregistered guns they said they were looking for in the houses of the two bodyguards, this was just a ploy by the DPP to scare Chakwera through his security men.
“How can 20 police officers storm houses of unarmed men looking for guns the men in questioon do not even have?” he asked.
In the fight against the opposition, earlier this week, the DPP government arrested Peoples Party (PP) acting president, Uladi Mussa despite the fact that he presented himself to the ACB after the graft busting body issued his arrest warrant.
Mussa who came using his personal car left Lilongwe ACB offices in an ACB vehicle.
Reports from Lilongwe indicated that Mussa spent almost two hours inside ACB offices where he was being questioned.
According to ACB’s spokesperson, Egrita Ndala, Uladi Mussa might have been heading to court as is protocol at ACB.
“I have not been officially communicated to about the whole issue but if your saying he has left our offices in an ACB vehicle then probably he is being taken to court,” she said.
Other reports also suggested that the PP acting president might have been heading to Lilongwe police.
