April 10, 2019 Elijah Phimbi-Nyasa Times 62 Comments
Malawi Police in Blantyre have reportedly arrested a man for “insulting”  First Lady Gertrude Mutharika.
First Lady Mrs Gertrude Mutharika
Nyasa Times understand that that the man identified as Tumpale Mwakibinga was arrested on Tuesday in Ndirande Township after she liked First Lady to a cartoon in his one of the social media posts.
National Police Spokesperson Inspector James Kadadzera asked for more time before commenting on the matter.
The arrest has caused a heated debate on various social media platforms.
Some of the people continue making defamatory and slanderous comments online afainst the First Lady on her fashion sense.
However, the majority are blaming the ruling Democratic  Progressive Party (DPP) of abuse of power and taking Malawians back to one party dictatorial system of government.
Others say the arrest is  draconian and a threat to free speech.
Social media users continue  posting images of the Mrs Mutharika  with texts considered offensive to the first lady.

What Tumpale Mwakibinga wrote pales to the insults Malawians are subjected to everyday by Mr Mchacha and Jeffrey. What do the Police do? Nothing. What about APM? He smiles as his lieutenants entertain him with their insults. We do not need the kind of police we have today. After May 21, the Police Service should undergo serious cleansing. Get lead of the unqualified DPP stooges masquerading as policemen. This is the most inefficient police, it is more of a DPP Cadet organization and the most corrupt institution in the country when the contrary is expected.
