Police launches manhunt for Ben Longwe in South Africa

By Vincent Gunde

Alleged reports circulating in various social media platforms sourced by the Malawi Independent are indicating that three Malawi Police Service [MPS] detectives led by Director of Criminal Investigation Department [CID] at the Police headquarters in Lilongwe have left the country to launch a manhunt for Activist, Sir Ben Longwe in South Africa.
Longwe is on a wanted list for having sent an audio clip declaring war against the courts and judges for failing to exercise fair justice to the poor advising Malawians to carry with them explosives to burn courts, judges houses and their property so that they should understand that Malawians are angry for them to start delivering fair justice.
A Warrant of Arrest was obtained ordered by the Director of Public Prosecutions [DPP] Dr. Steve Kayuni for Ben Longwe to answer charges of Cyber related and issuing threats against judicial officers and legal practitioners.
The Government of Malawi requested the South African Government to arrest and extradite Ben Longwe and in his response to the Warrant of Arrest, Longwe assured Malawians that he is ready to be arrested, prosecuted and hanged to death for speaking justice,

Speaking through an audio clip, the Human Right’s Ambassadors [HRA] Deputy Director Happy Chizaso Gondwe, has described a manhunt for Ben Longwe as a waste of resources coming at a time that Malawi is in fuel, electricity, forex and governance crisis.
Chizaso Gondwe said the money which government has spent to pay Ben Longwe’s assassins could have gone a long way towards procuring medical drugs in hospitals which are returning back patients to buy essential drugs such as panadol, aspirin in pharmacies.
Gondwe challenged the government that even police detectives can add up to 100 man-hunting Ben Longwe, they won’t find him advising it to send back Prophet Shephered Bushiri and Prophetess Mary Bushiri to answer their charges which are in South African courts of Money Laundering and other charges.
He appealed to leaders of the opposition DPP, UDF, Mafunde, AFORD and others to team up with the HRA to liberate Malawi out of the hands of thieves and that the Government of Tonse Alliance must fall for promising Malawians the moon.
…..’’Let’s join our hands together as we did in 2019, the opposition parties ferrying their members to Timothy Pagonachi Mtambo’s HRDC demonstrations to oust the DPP led government,’’….said Gondwe.
Gondwe has reminded opposition parties that they once worked hand in hand with Civil Society Organizations [CSOs] to liberate Malawi out of the shackles of the DPP saying time has now come for them to team up with the HRA for a unity of purpose.
He expressed hope that opposition parties will bury their differences by teaming up with the HRA to force President Dr. Lazarus McCarthy Chakwera and his Vice, Dr. Saulosi Klaus Chilima to resign or either to call for a Referendum or form a Government of National Unity to liberate Malawi from continuing facing the crisis.
