Information reaching faceofmalawi indicates that the Malawi Police Service (MPS) has received instruction from above to arrest Human Right Defenders Coalition (HRDC) Chairperson Timothy Mtambo to scare Malawians from holding the planned airports and border districts shutdown set for next week.
According to inside sources, this is the second move by the government after failing to set him and his family a blaze two weeks.
Mtambo also confirmed of the planned arrest in a statement posted on his official facebook page seen by faceofmalawi reporter.
âI am a dead person bcoz in your hearts, you already killed me by petrol bombing my compound, now you are planning to arrest the dead person, you are welcome! I can promise you that you will not stop Malawians this time around. As long as I live and I still have mental faculties, I will never stop fighting for a free, just, fair and developed Malawi.
âFor this, I am ready for anything and even in the after life I am committed to this cause. We are ready to engage anyone but we do not want to be threatened. We worship a powerful and owesome God. The Heavens are watching,â wrote Mtambo.
Meanwhile the move by government to arrest Mtambo has attracted mixed reactions on the social media with many Malawians warning government to tread carefully on the matter.
