120 MRA, Malawi police officers raid Kamlepo’s house

Firebrand Rumphi east legislator Kamlepo Kalua has lambasted the President Peter Mutharika government for unleasing over 120 Malawi Revenue Authority  (MRA) and police officers Wednesday night to his house to search for unpaid duty vehicles and guns.

Kamlepo says regime tactics to silence opposition

In an interview on Thursday morning, Kalua, a fearless critic of President Mutharika and his government said he would not be forced to surrender and be silenced.

“I am told they had instructions to pick me up, kill me. Imagine, they were trying to break my house doors as if vehicles are kept in a house,” he said.

The legislator said he was in Lilongwe at the time of the incident on Education parliamentary committee business.

He therefore said it was illegal to attempt to arrest him when he was on parliamentary business.

Kalua said he was told the MRA officers were combing for evidence on evasion of duty of his vehicles.

He said contrary to what the MRA officials think, he has two vehicles which he bought duty free as a privilege for being a member of parliament.

MRA spokesperson Steve Kapoloma asked for more time before commenting as he needed to consult the officers who effected the operation.

MRA has pounced on Times Group and Boniface Dulani’s office before on politically motivated operation.

    Whatever the case, nobody from the Northern part of Malawi will ever be elected for Malawi Presidency. Tikudziwa kuti Kamlepo akulira coz akudziwa zenizeni and is feeling pain of the fact. Everybody has the freedom to cry either in public or in private. Of course chilungamo ndichowawa BUT what else could you do?. Numbers are in the South and Centre.

    Revisit your behaviour towards people from the other regions of Malawi otherwise just live positively with the status core for there is nothing that will change it.

    Kamlepo, ukudabwa chani?. That is rule of law at its best – osamachita makani mukudziwa kuti simuchedwa kulira. Zisamakomere mbuzi kugunda galu, koma galunso naye akagunda mbuzi zinthu zidzikhala chimodzimodzi.

    Stupid are those that sympathize with an empty bucket like Kalua

    Shame on you

    Koma abale ine ulemu ndipereke kwa kamlepo, Kamlepo inu ndinubachikuliledi iiiii, pokha polimbana ndi Kamuzu aaaa ndinu achikulile. Panopa muli MDI masapota Ife, osadanda!

  6. Amfumu says:

    Some people commit crimes. When arrested or investigated they claim that they are being persecuted. No one is above the law. Not even Kamlepo vocal or not. What I have seen is that a handful of people just hate DPP. They just focus on negatives no matter how the positives outweigh the negatives. DPP please continue those numerous development projects. People in the villages know the good things you are doing. In 2019 those projects will yield political fruits. Mark my words. Lolani ntchito za manja anu zikuchitileni umboni.

  7. Kodi a boma mufuna kubwezera zomwe zidachitika kwa Chaponda { Kaloswe} kuti
    zichitikenso kwa anthu ena osalakwa kuti nawo achititsidwe manyazi? Ngati ali
    olakwa, ziwoneka, ngati ayi ziwonekanso. Kodi you have targeted Kamlepo
    poti adalinawo pa Kafukufuku wa Maize Gate? Ndiye mukumufunira zifukwa?
    A Kamlepo, inu zanu pheee! mtima m’malo. Ngati pali cholakwa, chiwoneka.
    Kodi ndale zosakanazi bwanji? A Intelligence athu akungochita inter-party
    intelligence, koma ya international yikutivuta.

  8. Makoko says:

    DPP should tread very carefully. You will start a civil war. It starts like that. When we people are tired they will fight back.

  19. Nabanda says:

    DPP Government kukonda ndale zachikalekale, kaya kapena chifukwa President wawo ndi Gogo (Okalamba). This is totally unacceptable. When ever every one is in disagreement of what they like (want) you become an enemy and can be killed at any time. I dont think there is any worst Political Party in the world like DPP.

    Inutu a opposition yemwe akupweteketseni ndi chakwera. He is too slow and too weak. Zoona demo kuchita kupereka 2 months notice?

  23. gwenyethe says:

    Pathetic government rotten to core. You can never win the hearts of voters through intimidation. Its a simple logic. The UK aid on police reform was a total waste of resources coz this police services can not reform under the DPP government.

    I feel sorry for the brilliant brains at MRA. They have been reduced to tools of intimidation. They are now at same level of thinking with the party cadets. Big shame.

  24. North korea says:

    Like pyongyang we will defend kamlepo , and tilipo mwaputa olakwika,
