Thugs Attack Chakwera’s Lawyer
In what many suspect to be an organised politically motivated criminal enterprise, thugs have during the night of Wednesday attacked Lawyer Likongwe who is one of the legal counsels representing the second petitioner in the ongoing presidential election case.
Information coming indicates that the thugs who broke into his house had tied his guards before going away with laptop, cellphones and briefcase.
The legal counsel is also reported to have been treated at a local clinic with stitches on cuts he sustained during the nocturnal attack.
Meanwhile, there is high suspicion in the Malawi Congress Party (MCP) camp and the entire opposition, that the thugs which attacked Chakwera’s lawyer were hired by the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) operatives amid rumours of impending re-run of presidential election.
In recent days, social media has been awash with rumours that in light of the emerging evidence in court, there is a higher possibility that the court will call for a re-run.
