By our reporter,

Lilongwe, Malawi — a number of former ruling party (DPP) officials who are the current opponents of the current Joyce Banda government have been arrested in a campaign of harassment intended to stop them from campaigning for the 2014 elections.

Singling out political opponents for working against the ruling party is precisely the tactic of every tyrannical government from Red China to Venezuela. The first step in the process is arresting and jailing anyone who opposes the government. This is exactly what the current government of Joyce Banda in Malawi is doing. It has now strategically arrested powerful opponents from the former ruling DPP party.

Joyce Banda’s administration has left all members of the former DPP who defected to her party. This is a clear indication that the current government is ready to stifle opposition in a bid to rig the next elections.

The ring leader of the so called coup plot Mr Goodwell Gondwe is still in cabinet and wining and dining with the president and yet all other members are being sought by the police. Ever since Joyce Banda took power she enjoyed popularity until recently when it has drastically dwindled, this has prompted her to weaken the opposition and in so doing she is bringing Malawi back to the dark ages.

The latest arrest are very suspicious indeed, in any coup plot the ring leader is always arrested together with his followers however in Malawi the ring leader of the coup is dinning and wining with the president.

The government want to push out the opposition so they can run the elections under their own conditions.  Already, PP is cranking up the electoral machinery so that it can decimate the opposition. Senior positions have been awarded based on nepotism.
