Drama continues to play out in the alleged abduction of human right activist Sylvester Namiwa whose claims that the Malawi Congress Party (MCP) had an involvement has been denied.

Interestingly, at the peak of the story Minister of Homeland Security Jean Sendeza, pointed a finger at the ousted Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) saying it orchestrated the whole thing to make government look bad.

Following the resurfacing of Namiwa, MCP National Publicity Secretary Rev Maurice Munthali branded his claims as baseless.

Munthali further described the assertion the party was involved as being frivolous and misleading.

‘’Their allegations expressly come as utterances smacking of sinister dramatists whose vowed intent is to instill a sense of insecurity in this country besides that of denting the party’s image,'' reads part of the statement.

Namiwa speaking at a press briefing in Lilongwe on Monday said the alleged abduction was a futile attempt by the MCP operatives to instill fear in Malawians.

Namiwa said "MCP wants the country to slide back to the era of terror, fear, darkness and death.

"This barbaric and archaic thinking reared its ugly face on Wednesday, July 27, 2022 when peace loving citizens were reminded of the old MCP regime, following the abduction of Namiwa."

Namiwa detailing his survival said  he has six scratches; two cuts on the right leg, two cuts from teeth bite on the right hand, two cuts on the outer throat, one cut on the neck, one cut on the left elbow, a stiff neck and a dislocated left knee.

The MCP spokesperson dared Namiwa to provide evidence of the party's involvement in the saga.

Munthali said Namiwa has lost the trust of Malawians with his antics.

Kayala: we won't comment on the allegations flying around

In response, Namiwa said he has provided the Malawi Police Services with evidence and wants them to be identified and brought to justice.

The Police National Spokesperson, Peter Kalaya said they are still investigating but could not comment on allegations flying around.

Kalaya stated they are professionally searching for the truth to the matter.
