Whatsapp faces ban in Malawi

1,059

WhatsApp is facing a nationwide ban in Malawi, after the instant messaging service was being used by members of the opposition to discuss a ‘coup plot’ against President Peter Mutharika.

According to sources privy to the issue, there are people within the government who are pushing for a ban of the popular site.

In a string of WhatsApp messages, Malawi Congress Party (MCP) officials conspired to pursue an Arab Spring-like revolution to overthrow president Mutharika and his government.

Whatsapp: Risks ban in Malawi.

They claimed to have been infuriated by what they see as the president’s failure to end a stinging food crisis that has seen maize prices triple in just under a few months and inflation exceed over 20%. The kwacha has also sharply fallen.

The MCP officials are said to have agreed to take advantage of the situation to call for a rebellion that would appear to have been sparked by Malawians in diaspora.

One of the officials, Ulemu Msungama has been arrested and has been charged with sedition and according to reports he has been granted bail in the spirit of avoiding disrupting the opening of the national assembly as MCP gurus are reportedly planning to protest against his arrest.

But according to a source, government has strong intentions to ban Whatsapp.

While Malawi24 could not independently verify this, reports emerging from the government show that the Mutharika administration has had sleepless nights on the plots against Mutharika who also faced calls to resign last week. However, over the weekend he maintained he cannot resign.

Recently, Mutharika revealed his concern over people’s use of social media, saying Malawians are becoming too reliant on social media.

Commentators said the remarks are an indication that the Mutharika administration is planning to regulate social media in the country.

In December, Whatsapp got banned in Brazil after the instant messaging service allegedly failed to cooperate with an investigation into indecent images of children on the app.

A judge ruled that the popular app should be suspended, following concerns that “sexually graphic photos of children” had been circulating between some users.

The ban was lifted 12 hours later.

  1. Malawi lasanduka dziko loipa kukhalamo. Anthufe tikuzunzika kuno ngati sikwathu. Madeya omwewa mpaka tikugula k250/kg okadya. Tivomereze kuti tatengapo gawo kuononga dziko lathu pomasankha molakwikwa atsogoleri athu. Ooooo Ambuye tichitireni chifundo! tithandizeni Ambuye. Atsogoleri athu ku opposition komanso ku boma sakutithandiza. Lawo ndi dyera za a mphawi alibe nazo ntchito.

  2. Will the problems Malawi is facing end? Will it bring food to our tables/mats? I don’t think anything as serious as a coup plot could be discussed on social media. Nzeru zochitira convince aMalawi zakutheranipo apa. There is yet another year of drought worse than the current one ahead of us. The president and his useless lieutenants better start banging heads now. If as a nation we can’t implement the greenbelt now, let’s never do it at all. In hard and bad times, can’t government engage SUCOMA and DWASCO to grow maize to save lives and at the same time save forex.

  24. I support the current presidency, and some of you my friends can be my witness in this page. But this issue of WhatsApp banning is not the right decision. If the government want to do this must ban the media or anything else because on WhatsApp we do chat and send messages to our families. Everything found on WhatsApp comes from media. An Ignorant like I myself how, where can I manage to take an instant photo from the office or house of President. Please Mr president, l beg. You may just lose your dignity through your surrounded advisers.

  34. Guys don’t be wondering when it comes to politics. I’ll give you an example maybe some of you know, after God created Adam in Eden garden(paradise), that so called Satan, he refuses to pay respect Adam, and then became an opposition (multipartite). What happened God chased him out from his Kingdom. Why God did so, because it was shown clearly that there’s no democratic system when it comes to choose the leadership or Kingdom. Look at now what is happening across the continents, where ever is the multipartisem, there is no peace at all or what they call regime. This you have to know that we are living in the last days of our lives. Satan is really ruling our lives whether you like or not until Muntharika must sign that deal of Gays rights and satanic laws, that could insult each and everyone. Just ask ourselves why that former pope Benedict was resigned as a pope, because he refused to change and sign some of things that would carry us into dramatic issues so that all fellow Christians followers would be deemed with their eyes and ears. I’m appealing to all fellow Malawians plea we mustn’t rush to judge someone else when the turning around, today we are blaming him and tomorrow who’ll be????,, nothing is going to change unless you the ones, you have rights to decide whether yes or know. Don’t blame Peter and government, he is really trying to save our country from the hello of fire. Izo zili ndi yinu that was my opinion, ng’waaaaaa,,I love all my fellow Malawians.

    Your Excellency,

    “Non nobis solum nati sumus.” (Not for ourselves alone are we born) – Marcus Tullius Cicero

    I greet you in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. It is not in my nature to address sensitive issues publicly; and in your case, I would have loved to tell you all this in person, but my efforts to meet you have always been nipped in the bud.

    I write this letter today, with hope that it will get to you as I have issues I need to bring to your attention through the general public, comprising of people who supported your way to power.

    Your Excellency, you are an exceptional citizen and you are a person I look up to. Your achievements cannot go unnoticed and Malawi shall speak of your legacy forever. In short, you are one of the greatest Malawians I have known.

    Looking at the present Malawi however, you will have to agree with me that things have gone out of hand, especially with the prevailing hunger crisis. Just like anyone whose heart is attached to Malawi, this has been my main concern Your Excellency. As a citizen of Malawi and as a man of God, I took it upon my shoulders to help your government and work with your government, in your efforts to help out people hit by the crisis.

    Unfortunately, things have not been smooth on my part to the point that I have now suspended my efforts towards helping the suffering Malawians. Ever since I started the project Your Excellency, things have not really gone down well with your government officials and the ruling party diehards. According to what I have gathered, they are worried that my help has strings attached. To be exact Your excellency, they have all reasons to believe that I am eying your seat come 2019’s presidential elections.

    Your Excellency, the reason above has sprung the said party diehards and other government officials into fighting my efforts towards helping the people whom your government is also trying to help in the face of the hun
