The Malawi Law Society (MLS) has condemned the office of Director Public Prosecution (DPP) for using WhatsApp conversations as the basis for the sedition cases against opposition members.

The Malawi police arrested Malawi Congress Party’s (MCP) spokesperson Jessie Kabwila and MCP’s legal advisor Louis Chakhwantha over plots to remove President Peter Mutharika using “Egypt style.”

Commenting on the development, MLS president John Suzi Banda has condemned the DPP for using the WhatsApp conservation as facts for the sedition cases.

“If government is using this conversation that has gone viral on the social media, then this is laughable because every Malawian has a right to organize a demonstration but if government has more than what we have seen ready to be proven in a court of law then it is okay,” said Banda.

Meanwhile, National Police spokesperson Nicolas Gondwa has confirmed that the two have been charged with Sedition in accordance with Section 51 of the Penal Code.

  1. (I HAVE A MIRACLE TESTIMONY TO SHARE WITH EVERYONE)
    Hello my name is Lizzy Joe, I want to give a testimony about my HIV virus that was cured by a great spell caster. Since last 16 years I have being a HIV positive patient. I never think I we live long again and am so grateful to Dr Greg Carlos who help me cured my HIV virus last 3 weeks. I was in a great pain so I told one of my best friends about my situation; she told me that there is a great spell caster that can cure my VIRUS. I asked her if she had his contact, she gave me his email and phone number, I emailed him and he talked to me and he perform the necessary things and he told me that after 14 days, I should go for a test. Which I did, when the doctor told me that am now a HIV negative I couldn’t believe myself I went to see another doctor the result was still the same, I was human on planet earth, so i contacted him and thanked him for is good work. Please if you are having a similar problem please visit him or contact him at: dr.gregcarlos@gmail.com or whatsApp: +2348146867873… ALL THANKS TO Dr Greg Carlos.
