Former Presidential Press Officer to late Bingu Wa Mutharika, Chikumbutso Mtumodzi has been admitted at City Centre clinic in the capital Lilongwe few hours after his arrest.

Lilongwe Police Spokesperson Kingsley Dandaula confirmed of the development in an interview with the press, saying Mtumodzi suffered high blood pressure while in a holding cell at Lingadzi Police in Area 18.

Mtumodzi was arrested on Wednesday for allegedly inciting venders to revolt against government.

Information sourced by FaceofMalawi indicates that last week Mtumodzi organized meeting street vendors whose goods were confiscated by the Lilongwe City Council (LCC) and was mobilising them to revolt against the authorities.

The development did not please the said officials who took the issue to Lilongwe Magistrate Court for legal action on the matter hence the arrest.

Mtumodzi together with former legal advisor to late Bingu wa Mutharika, Allan Ntata have been so critical of the current reign of President Professor Arthur Peter Mutharika.
