The Human Rights Defenders Coalition (HRDC) and the Centre for Human Rights and Rehabilitation (CHRR) have joined voices criticising the arrest of Rumphi East parliamentarian Kamlepo Kalua and human rights activist, Bon Kalindo, on cybercrime-related charges.

The two organisations have issued statements condemning the arrests with a call for their unconditional release.

HRDC chairperson Gift Trapence and CHRR executive director Michael Kaiyatsa have also asked government to stop arrests and focus on investigation into what led to the plane crash that killed vice president Saulos Chilima and eight other people.

Kamlepo Kalua and Bon Kalindo were arrested on alleged false statements through WhatsApp on the plane crash on 10th June.
