Mutharika, Chilima in Tug-of-War As Malawi Election Draws Near

In a move that the opposition has described as a political witch-hunt, Malawi's government reduced Vice President Saulos Chilima's security detail, but the presidential aspirant has obtained a court order restraining government or police from tampering with his protection service team. Chilima, a former ally of President Peter Mutharika, ditched the ruling party and is set to run in the May 21 presidential race.
