MCP lawyer attacked

Unknown thugs are reportedly attacked Counsel Pempho Likongwe, one of the lawyers representing Malawi Congress Party (MCP) President Dr Lazarus Chakwera, in the ongoing Constitutional court.

Confirming the thuggery, another member of Chakwera’s legal team, Counsel Lalley Mita, has said the attack happened last night right at Likongwe’s residence in Blantyre.

Counsel Mita has said the thugs managed to bolt with a laptop, a briefcase and mobile phones and Counsel Likongwe got physically hurt in the process.

 However, Counsel Mita has refused to speculate that the attack is in connection with the case involving Dr Lazarus Chakwera, an opposition party leader.

 Lately, there have been attacks on the property of members of Malawi Congress Party (MCP); latest cases being petrol bombing of the office of MCP Vice president, Sidik Mia and the vehicle of the party’s Director of campaign, Honouble Moses Kunkuyu; both in Blantyre
