He added; “This is not the first time that the President has uttered such words. Last time he said that the opposition were working with Al Shabab to destabilize the country”.

Mutharika said in his New Year’s message that HRDC was degenerating slowly into a terrorist organization following its organization nationwide anti-Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) Chairperson Jane Ansah protests.
