â€śPolitical arrests have begun – I am in solidarity with DPP Regional Govenor David Kambalame who was arrested yesterday on trumped up political charges. We can not start what is termed as a â€ś3rd Republicâ€ť with political arrests. I stand by the DPP/UDF family we can not be intimidated or afraid of political arrests. We did away with that in 1993,â€ť wrote Muluzi.
Meanwhile Kambalame has been granted a police bail.
