Some alleged democratic progressive party-DPP followers and Malawi Congress Party fans nearly caused commotion at the funeral ceremony of the departed united independent party president Helen Singh in Blantyre on Tuesday.
According to reports, it all started when alleged democratic progressive party cadets attempted to manhandle one of Malawi Congress Party officials, Ulemu Msungama, at the ceremony.
There were no clear reasons as to why the alleged party cadets attempted to manhandle Msungama at the funeral.
Speaking in a telephone interview from Blantyre, Msungama confirmed the incident but said he is not aware as to why he is being targeted.
The incident comes barely a week after the two parties involved in violence at a funeral ceremony in Kasungu.
Meanwhile the two parties have engaged into a verbal war over who has been fueling the fracas.
MCP acting secretary general, Ezeinhower Mkaka, has accused the ruling democratic progressive party of failing to discipline its supporters.
He says the party has overwhelming evidence that the suspects are DPP cadets.
But DPP spokesperson Francis Kasaila says MCP has run out of ideas to the level of using funerals as a campaign strategy.
