Is Malawi in a State of Emergency?

The Malawi government must explain if the forex and fuel starved southern African nation is in a state of emergency following the detention without trial of lawyer Ralph Kasambara, a Member of Parliament has demanded.

The demand was made in parliament on Friday by Salima South parliamentarian Mr. Uladi Mussa who wanted the Minister of Justice to explain on the matter.

Mr. Mussa, who is former Home Affairs Minister, wondered on the way government is handling the arrest of private lawyer Mr. Kasambara who was granted court bail but later re-arrested.

“You should tell us if the country is in a state of emergency with the way Ralph Kasamabara has been arrested. Here is a person who the courts granted bail and the state re-arrests and sends him into detention without trial. Why? Are we in a state of emergency,” queried Mussa.

But Speaker of Parliament Mr. Chimunthu Banda stopped further debate on the matter because the Minister of Justice was not present.

“Members, I am curtailing debate on the matter until Tuesday because the Minister of Justice is not present in the House,” said the Speaker

Mr. Kasambara was arrested on Monday, given bail on Wednesday, re-arrested on the same day kept at chichiri prison in Blantyre before being transferred to Zomba maximum prison.—Zodiak Online

Stupid people think stupidly. Bravo stupid Mussa for defending a stupid Kasambala for his stupid actions because he was butted from the stupid DPP as a stupid A.General for his stupid role he played to arrest the stupid Chilumpha and for impreginating a poor girl. Palibe amene atakapulumuka kumwamba apa. Palibe wabwino. Ngati mbusa Sembeleka ali ndi mangawa kuli bwanji ine munthu wamba.

May The Almigy God save us from the evil that is flourishing in our midst. May Your Mighty Hand cover all the weak and the helpless. May your light shine even in the hearts of evil doers so that they may know you and stop the evil they plan against the weak. May the strong and oppressors of this times know that you always side with the weak.
