All roads lead to Maula Prison in the Malawi commercial capital Blantyre where thousands of Malawians, politicians and Civil Society leaders are flocking to visit the detained opposition leader Atupele Muluzi in a show of solidarity.

Some of the notable faces who have been spotted at the prison are Malawi's Vice president Joyce Banda, top lawyer and activist Ralph Kasambara, musician and politician, Lucius Banda, activist Ben Chiza Kandawire .

Walked to Maula

However the road to Maula prison has been closed by heavy armed  police stopping everyone from driving into the prison road a development which forced the vice president to walk for about a kilometer to meet Muluzi.

Speaking to people who visited him Muluzi disclosed that he was intimidated by law enforcers on the way to Maula Prison.

He said he is being remanded awaiting to be charged.

Muluzi  was arrested on 20 March 2012 in the capital Lilongwe and charged for inciting the public to engage in violence.

This follows an incident on Sunday when angry residents in the capital, Lilongwe, attacked a police Station after the security forces tear gassed a gathering crowd at a political party he was addressing.
