Tiwonge Chimbalanga and Steven Monjeza staying on the low


Tiwonge Chimbalanga and Steven Monjeza are not in the clear yet.

Because of their freedom, the couple can still be in some danger, mostly by the stupid townspeople. So, they are keeping a low profile for now.

However, folks are doing all they can to keep them safe:

Activists said late Saturday that they were searching for a safe house for the couple, fearing they could be attacked upon release.

The couple's lawyer, Mauya Msuku, said he had not seen either of the men since their release.

Maxwell Manda also said he had not seen Chimbalanga, his brother-in-law, on Sunday. He told The Associated Press days earlier that Chimbalanga wanted to leave Malawi upon his release.

"We heard that they were released but we don't know where they are," he told The AP on Sunday. "They are neither at their home in (a Blantyre suburb) or their villages. But I know they are keeping a low profile deliberately because of the sensitivity of their case."

The two were not at their Blantyre home when an Associated Press reporter visited Sunday morning.

Hopefully, they can get out of Malawi, maybe move to England or somewhere safe.

I'm so happy they are released, but their safety is now a concern! I hope that can leave Malawi.
