Chikumbutso Mtumodzi nabbed over revolt against LCC


Police in Lilongwe have arrested former presidential press secretary Chikumbutso Mtumodzi for mobilizing vendors to revolt against Lilongwe City Council (LCC) over confiscated goods.

Mtumodzi arrested.

Mtumodzi is reported to have had meetings with vendors on the council’s decision to confiscate goods from the vendors on streets of the city.

Confirming the arrest, Lilongwe police spokesperson Kingsley Dandaula said Mtumodzi has been insulting the law enforcers who were on duty to ensure street vending is curbed.

Dandaula added that the police then launched a manhunt to arrest the suspect over his plan to lead a vendors’ revolt against the authorities.

But following his arrest, Mtumodzi suffered high blood pressure in police cells of Area 18 and he was rushed to hospital for medical treatment. Mtumodzi is yet to appear in court to answer charges of conduct likely to cause breach of peace.

Late president Bingu wa Mutharika appointed Mtumodzi to hold the office of the presidential press secretary before axing him and deploying him to the ministry of information where he worked as director of information.

He now owns and runs Dziko FM, one of the local radio stations in the country.
