Reliable sources have indicated to Malawi Punch that Malawi Army has intensified security for the Vice President and he is now under Military Police guard.
This comes at a point when whereabouts of Malawi President Mr Peter Mutharika remain unknown, with reports circulating that he is not well and receiving medical treatment in US.
According to Malawi Constitution, the Vice President assumes high office when the elected President is incapacitated.
Punic has overtaken the ruling DPP following Mutharika’s health reports and there has been divisions among too gurus who feel Chilima is not the party’s approved candidate, but rather push for George Chaponda.
It might be upon these political tricks that Malawi Army decided to offer full protection to the Veep.
During Malawi Investiments Forum, which Chilima attended as the guest of honor, there was heavy presence of Military Police sorounding him.
According to government report, Mr Mutharika will arrive this Sunday from UNGA.
Malawians await the historical come back of Mr Mutharika.
