People from all walks of life are flocking to Sorgin village, Traditional Authority Mbenje in Nsanje district to see a tricycle donated to Mabvuto Mussa by a well-wisher, a Kabaza man who was arrested by the law enforcers on Friday last week.
Mussa was arrested following a video which went viral on social media showing him carrying nine little children to school on a bicycle, attracting public anger.
The video also saw Minister of Homeland Security Richard Chimwendo Banda intervening on the matter by calling upon the law enforcers to act with speed.
Some protested over his arrest saying the law enforcers acted beyond and out of the blues a good Samaritan came to his rescue by buying him a tricycle worth MK3 million.
The trycile was handed over to Mussa on Tuesday in the capital Lilongwe.
Speaking after receiving the tricycle on Tuesday, Mussa said the trauma of last week has turned into a blessing.
“I was arrested by the police and released within an hour. I never knew I will be smiling today. I thank Mr. Gerald Kampanikiza for coming to my rescue,” said Mussa.
Kampanikiza, a well-wisher from Lilongwe organized a social media Gofundme campaign for Mussa.
“When I set up a Facebook group, the response was overwhelming and within an hour, K250 000 was raised. Initially, we wanted to buy a motorcycle for him but a sponsor suggested we buy a tricycle instead. We invited Mussa to Lilongwe and the sponsor bought him this tricycle,” said Kampanikiza.
Meanwhile Mussa has arrived in his home district in Nsanje.
