Atupele Muluzi Out on Bail
Detained United Democratic Front presidential hopeful Atupele Muluzi has been released on police bail.
His lawyer Jai Banda confirmed that Mr. Muluzi was freed on bail Friday night around midnight.
“I can confirm that Mr. Atupele Muluzi has been released on police bail. He will appear in court on the 19th of April,” said Banda.
Currently, the young Muluzi is still at Mwaiwathu Hospital in Blantyre where he is receiving treatment for High Blood Pressure and Malaria.
He has been given bail after pressure from his supporters in the country’s major cities of Blantyre, Mzuzu, Lilongwe and Zomba.
Hundreds of people thronged Mwaiwathu Private Hospital in Blantyre to welcome him while chanting songs calling for his immediate release.
In Mzuzu UDF supporters have threatened to hold a vigil at the regional police headquarters if Mr. Muluzi is not freed
Such was also the case for his supporters in Balaka.
The development also comes as his father, the former president Dr. Bakili Muluzi is expected in the country today from South Africa.
He requested for some days from his doctors to attend to his son’s arrest. - Zodiak Online
