A Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) cadet operating under a pseudonym of Magede si Wandale Afrobarometer has urged the DPP led government not to give former President Joyce Banda some breathing space arguing that she has the capability and ability to destabilise the government.
In a Facebook post, the cadet that has been known to be privy to some secrets of the DPP has argued that President Banda orchestrated the fall of Bingu wa Mutharika by spreading propaganda against him to the west. It was later to happen that the late Mutharika would fall out with the west who are also the donors.
Magede argued that arresting Banda now would be good for the DPP government as led by Peter Mutharika which has the daunting task of putting Malawi back on track economically.
“Leave JB free at your own risk,” argued the post.
However, his remarks have received wide condemnation from some people who indicated that it would be wrong for the Mutharika government to arrest JB if she has committed no crimes simply because they are afraid of her.
“JB has the right to live as a human being and should not be detained,” commented another against the post.
Former President Joyce Banda has not been seeing eye-to-eye with President Mutharika and speculations have been that at any earliest chance the DPP will move in to have JB arrested.
