Deal gone sour? Mphwiyo gave Kasambara cash day he was shot: Malawi cashgate

This is getting interesting!  The shooting of former Ministry of Finance budget director Paul Mphwiyo has always been feared to have been a result of a corrupt deal turned sour and the ongoing trial is bringing some interesting information lending credence to that with the latest being lawyer Ralph Kasambara’s ex-domestic worker revealing her former boss and gun-shot survivor met on the day Mphwiyo was shot.

Kasambara: At the centre of unsuccessful plot to murder Mphwiyo

Kasambara: At the centre of unsuccessful plot to murder Mphwiyo

It is believed Mphwiyo was about to expose a corruption syndicate, and in the wake of his attempted murder, police raids targeting several high-level officials uncovered wads of cash hidden in their cars and homes.

Jesse Mussa Kafuwe, who worked as a domestic worker at Kasambara’s residence in Lilongwe, told the High Court in Lilongwe when she testified as prosecution witness that Mphwiyo and the former minister of Justice and Constitutional Affairs at the time, exchanged bags during their meeting.

She also told the court that Kasambara drove out with Pika Manondo on the evening in a Mercedes Benz which in the morning was found parked in an unusual space behind the servants’ quarters at the senior counsel’s residence.

Kafuwa told the court that, Patrick Gada who she described as a friend to Kasambara, asked her to keep registration plates of the vehicle outside the house

The witness told the court that she saw Mphwiyo, who was identified to him by Kasambara’s wife later, bringing out a bag which he later took back to the vehicle but without its contents.

“I later found a bag in their [Kasambaras’] bedroom as I was cleaning which was out of place, I tried to put it back but it was too heavy. When I opened to check why it was heavy, I found there was money. I did not count because it seemed like a lot of money,” she testified.

After she was sacked, Kasambara’s wife allegedly warned Kafuwe by telephone not to say anything about the happenings at the Kasambara residence, especially about number plates of the Mercedes Benz and Kasambara’s  connection to the Mphwiyo shooting.

Kasambara is representing himself in answering charges of attempted murder and conspiracy to commit murder alongside Kumwembe who Mphwiyo identified as the shooter, DaukaManondo, PikaManondo, Robert Kadzuwa and businessperson Cashgate suspect Osward Lutepo.

Mphwiyo had identified Kasambara and Manondo as two of the five people who approached him at the gate of his Area 43 house before a man,  identified as Macdonald Kumwembe, fired shots at him.

He told the court, presided over by Justice Michael Mtambo, that Kasambara and others had given him “ten days to live” unless he honoured certain government payments.

    It is pathetic for any sane malawian to assume that you have workers in the house and they don’t know you inside out. They do. They know all your underwear and anything you claim to be hiding. If you think am lying go and hide any small thing anywhere even under the bed and three days later tell your maid you are looking for it. I guarantee you she will find it in a few minutes obviously because she had seen it even before you were looking for it. So let’s be Frank here…the maid clearly has motives but she is not lying. And why would an ordinary maid go all the way to disgrace her boss just for being fired. What did the boss do to her? Was it an ordinary domestic grievance that led to her firing or is it because she knew too much and started to blackmail them in the house??? If you want to keep secrets or keep your private life private buy a hoover, dishwasher, microwave, install an alarm system, don’t get married and live alone with your rottweiler. Don’t trust maid ooooo

  2. mjiba says:

    the maid is bringing in good information which should have tipped the investigators what and how to go about their investigations, but as we all observed, it took almost 3 solid months to get to Kasambara that was a shame to this whole case, the car that Paul claims to have been shot in, is no where to be seen, this case from the beginning was being stage managed to fail by both the prosecutions and the accused persons, the end result was to shield the whole truth about CASHGATE.

  3. MPHWIYO MIGHT BE INTERESTING ———-HERE IT SHOWS HE WAS ATTACKED BY OTHER PEOPLE WHO KNEW HIS MOVEMENT REGARDING THE MONEY SHARING ON THAT PARTLY DAY. COURT LOOK THIS.

  4. chimuponho says:

    you have provoke unprovokable.ndikunyenyaninyenyani ndithu

  5. Ralph's friend says:

    I can see Ralph in some of the comments here and I know he has recruited some of his partners in crimes to help give him positive publicity and media and moral support. But it won’t work, cunning as you might be. Malawi is ranked the poorest coz of you guys and mayI Joyce Banda. You must face the law

  6. kwataine says:

    Amangidwe basi!!!! Kuba!!! Onse ndi mphwiyo yemwe!!!

  7. me says:

    Mr Eye witness, if Ralph asks Mphwiyo whether he visited him on that fateful day and Mphwiyo declines, why should the judge believe the statement from Mphwiyo (a crime suspect in cashgate) and discredit the maid’s version which can easily be verified through call logs? Obviously Mphwiyo has some interests and would deny visiting Ralph if he knows/fears that accepting that he visited Ralph would incriminate him. I am not a lawyer but I think this is clear!

  8. Boyd Kilembey says:

    Dont confuse the case you good people. This is the attempted murder case on Mphwiyos life. It is not the cashgate case

  9. peter says:

    My intuition tells me this evidence given by the maid may be true. However, if there is any doubt, let the state and defence get transcript of the conversation between the maid and Ralph’s wife from the telecommunication company. Nanga zimenezo zikhala za bodza? Kapena a ralph awopa kuti ziwulura zina?

  10. sunderstar says:

    I find the writing of EYE WITNESS against the maid to be very threatening and coming from a Lawyer, this country is under siege, we have crooked lawyers who can commit felony at will and be confident of threatening and intimidating witnesses in court and get away with it. I dont know why up to now Kasambara is being allowed to practice and continue abusing the Judiciary instruments and do it to his benefit. This maid is simply explaining what she saw and what happened,, it is of no point to threaten and confuse her. Now with the statement by EYE WITNESS saying that this maid will live a life of regrets the rest of her life indicates that our Lawyers are above law, they can influence judgement and they can hit back using the legal means to make someone suffer. I wish this writing by EYE WITNESS must be scrutinised further and the Maid to be given a state protection 24hrs and also the acts of the Judge handling this case to be monitored. I wish Kasambara’s case can be handled by a foreign Judge.

  11. Mu yao weni weni says:

    I think the call logs can help here………………tione the exact words omwe Mai Kasambara ananena pomuopseza wa ntchitoyo….. i rest my case

  12. 3ptiya says:

    We gonna see the results…….. these guys eeee!!! God forgive them.

  13. chindere says:

    IT IS STRAIGHT FORWARD THAT ALL THESE ARE THIEVES AND I DON’T WHY THE GOVNT SHUD BE FOOLED IN GOING FURTHER WITH THE CASE .PHWIYO,KASAMBALA AND THE CREW SHUD IMMEDIATELY BE IMPRISONED WITHOUT WAISTING OUR TAXES FURTHER.EVERYONE KNOWS THAT PHWIYO AND THE KASAMBARAS ARE THE MAIN THIEVES IN THIS CASE.

  14. nabanda says:

    We hear call logs can be traced. Y dont they do the same with the call from Ralph’s wife to the maid??

  15. NABINGU says:

    following with keen interest – i fear for the maids life

  17. victim Chamkhuni Lwazazi says:

    Yes Kasambara may be a mafia, may know the law very well, may be a dangerous killer – The same characters of his will catch-up with him. The truth is always with the law. Remember, ‘When you twist the truth, watch out when it springs back’. I know Kasambala is a human being, not God. And God is always on the side of the truth, no matter how clever one may be. Malawians have suffered, lost lives and property because of the so called clever thieves of government money and killers.

    every time too fools collide, disaster looms..unfortunately ordinary malawian citizens are at risk losing more money to one or more of these greedy assholes..there is nothing like mafia in malawi, tiyeni tisakweze mbuzi mu mtengo apa – kasambara and crew are are a bunch of stinking scam who couldnt even manage to kill another criminal..mafia?? my foot!

  20. mphatso says:

    what about the Benz and the missing number plates?As for the cash,thats why the case is Cashgate related money money everywhere.Sometimes courts just play fools games when they know the truth.Invite Forensic experts from states and see the evidence they will find

  21. monkeybay says:

    When one is fired, you think can talk good of the boss? stupid house maid.

  22. Wokomaatani says:

    Both Mphwiyo and Kasambara are criminals. They have been stealing our taxes. A civil servant like Mphwiyo cannot build a house like the one he lives in area 43 from his salary and allowances. He has been driving top of the range vehicles on top of that. He should follow Kamata and Senzani to jail. Leonard Karonga now has a case to answer. Wapona Kita is another thief who has been changing mercedes benzes like clothes. Lawyers are stilling a lot here in Malawi.

  23. EYE WITNESSES says:

    ” I did not count because it seems it was alot of Money” what a fool. Umafuna uziwelenge ngati ndani? It was out of place unassiyapo ndiwe kuti uziti asiya polakwika? Mayi Kasambala katseguleni mulandu Maid uyu was intruding in your privacy. Mmalo mokolopa nkusanja zinthu amakhala busy kumatsegula katundu wanu nkumaona.

  24. EYE WITNESSES says:

    Kasambala is very clever, I have said this now and then. He knows the laws of Malawi inside out and the sections very well. He knows what the Judge is looking for to incriminate him. He may not cross-examine the Maid but opt to question Mphwiyo if he visited him. If Mphiyo denies, the Maid would be Charged of Perjury (Lying under oath), she is going to regret that for the rest of her life. Walowelera ya ma Mafia.
    Secondly, if you give me a bag full of the contents that the Maid did not see and i come back with an empty bag. Tomorrow you find a bag full of money would you say that’s the contents of the bag that I received yesterday? The Maid is in For hot soup. Kasambala would only ask the Maid ” Did you see me pour the contents of the bag in this bag” what do you think the Maid will answer? Your answer is as good as mine…..her evidence will be pushed aside.

  25. zandile says:

    Malawian Jew, money was passed on in exchange of good s, what goods? Kasambara has a case to answer. Don’t influence judge to let Kasambara free. Joyce Banda knows as well that Kasambara is one of the culprits.

  26. maonga Village says:

    hahaha stupid prosecution team indeed,,is that the kind of state witness you can bring to court?

    1. naligonje says:

      Wats wrong with this witness if we may know??

  27. Malindima says:

    The story has many missing links hence it’s flow is not clear.
    Lady is regarded as evidence in chief therefore answering questions based on what she saw.She is vital to this case and some elements if her testimony can be important to the prosecution.

  28. Henz says:

    I dont think so. Kasambara knows the truth thus why he decided to handle the case yekha so that the secret remains with him and his wife and not another lawyer. Akuwopa kuti akawulula to the other party, thus the state through Kamudoni Nyasulu.

  29. Malawian Jew says:

    Stupid prosecution team. You spoiled the show with this maid story. Just wait when Kasambara will cross examine her. You will wish she never stood in the witness box. Kasambara and Mphwiyo exchanging bags. If money was found in Mpwiyo’s bag (the bag found in Kasambara’s bedroom), what was the content of Kasambara’s bag given to Mphwiyo? If money was exchanged against money therefore cash gate never took place. If money was passed on in exchange of goods then there is not illicit business here. This testimony has left money wholes in this case. It gives Kasambara many chances to be acquitted.

    1. Hoitty says:

      kasambara cross examined her for one hour and dwelt on the argument that she was a bitter maid after being fired

  30. MMALAWI says:

    Now which is which: They exchanged bags and Mphwiyo returned to his car with a bag which was empty! And later she finds a bag full of cash in Kasambala’s bedroom! Not well collaborated evidence at all and so Ralph walks free. I know Justice Dr. Mtambo as a judge who pays attention to detail and this evidence obviously weakens the case

    1. naligonje says:

      Akulu this z nt the last witness,,,,other witnesses r coming,,,perhaps these will answer those questions,,,u think the foolish to continue a case that has no evidence,,,WAIT before making conclusion

      1. naligonje says:

        I mean u think the prosecution is foolish to continue a case that has no evidence

  31. Bless says:

    If they had arguments, would Paul have spent the night out that long?

  32. Bless says:

    So if its a bag of money, how can the maid link it to the shooting? Did she saw the two arguing? Was the car parked outside the fence of the house or inside? If it was inside, how would you call it parked at an unussual place when we all have parked our cars at any place we want so long its within our yards. I’m just asking. Her words need more backing. How can we prove its a deal gone sour without the concerned telling the court they disagreements over payment of money. What we only heard was the chasing of payments. It’s interesting but complicated to follow. Can we have public hearing for this case please to avoid misrepresentation of facts. We want hear for ourselves

  33. Mangulenje says:

    Malawi is really a tiny country. Kodi kulibe anthu ena ku Malawi kuno? We are tired of hearing of the same names; Kasambara, Phwiyo all the time….. Demeti!!!!

  38. Nkhombokombo says:

    The lady has spoken alittle too late. She says she was sacked and Madam Kasambara worned her about the spoils! This sounds a little bit malicious. Could this not be coming out of anger or a mere cooked coached up story to smear RK? I doubt if it carries any truth. If Mpwiyo exchanged bags with Kasambara, what was Kasambara giving Mpwiyo as the bags should have come from Mphwiyo who is assumed to have had bags of money? These are coached up evidence to corner Kasambara. A house maid opening up the bags, what was her intention? About the number plates, did she really see the plates belonged to the Benz or she had the knowledge of the cars that Kasambara had? And does this mean that indeed Mphwiyo had ilicit money that was stolen from the Gvt was meant to be shared? We should look deeper than it appears. Where were the Manondo brothers and the others when this action was taking place? I beg to believe the contrary. Did she just leave the bags not poking her long finger to satisfy her desire? Watch out!! If that was the case then she too is a beneficially of the Cashgate and must also be caged!

    Mphwiyo kundidabwitsa. He is willing to let Kasambara walk free chifukwa chopanga withhold info. Iwe Mphwiyo, we know you are involved in stealing hvt money. Your case of theft is coming whether you like it or not. So if you keep on telling half truths, Ralph will walk free and you and your wife will still be prosecuted on cashgate and go to jail. Maid uyu wayambapo iwr ungovomeleza nkufotokoza zonse. Right now the court needs motive kapena tinene kuti pakhale chifukwa chomwe chinachititsa Kasambara kufuna kupha mphwiyo. Chifukwa chilipo Mphwiyo akuchidziwa koma sakunena on the grounds that it may incriminate him. Koma upanga regret cz mlanduo ukupezabe mmenemo,Ralph akudya money unakamsiyira kwawo muchikwamazo. Kufa pawiri

  42. Zebe says:

    People like Mphwiyo and Raph are the kind that have made Malawi remain in such a pathetic state as it is today. Now we are the poorest nation in this only known habitable planet that God created in the universe. And yet they have friends and go about life in town in the company of bootlickers and admirers. i for one can not share a table with evil minded people like them. Fotseki

  60. tambwali says:

    Woman completely contradicts Mphwiyo. Mphwiyo never said he gave Kasambara cash nor he visited his house. This is useless evidence that has completely weaken otherwise a strong case.

  61. nyolokan says:

    If the prosecutors truly believe the KASAMBALA’S MAID STORY, why then didnt they arrest and charge Kasambala’s wife for OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE? Its sounds fishy…..just me

  62. Agalu Pa Mpando (APM) says:

    But Mphwiyo hasn’t said anything that he visited Kasambara house that day. He hasnt said he delivered any money to Kasambara house that day. So if Mphwiyo never said so can we believe this shit?

  63. Evidence says:

    The hunter will be hunted. Kasambara thinks he is clever but this time he will not go off the hook. the only problem to this case is that Mphwiyo is also an acomplice to theft and is withholding vital information for fear of hanging himself. So Patrick Gadama after stealing from the late Reuben wanted to continue stealing

  64. akatswiri says:

    Lets wait and see the outcome of the case.

  66. Kadakwiza says:

    A Kasambala apa ndiye zawavuta basi. For 50 good years Malawi is the poorest country because of such selfish, greedy Malawians like Mr Mphwiyo and Mr Kasambala, Lutepo.. Shame on you. Anyway they say someone is innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. We are watching very close.

    Beside the earthly court,you crooks do you know that God is watching.

  68. mkaaji wakweli. says:

    koma ziliko!!!

  69. Ralph Kasambara and Pika Manondo are friends. However, I doubt if Kafuwe is saying the truth considering the distance that exists between domestic workers and their bosses. Even between the bosses in the offices and messengers. Most of us would not allow domestic workers into our bedrooms when the wives are there. These are weak points in this case.

    2. ahoy says:

  76. The movie is unfording quite interestingly. l lost count, I dont know which part this is. The only unfortunate thing is courts technicalities here. Some of those involved will be rewarded for this cashgate on technical grounds despite glaring evidence. But still God will judge everyone according to deeds coz the procedure in heavenly courts are truths!!!

  77. Malawian Jew says:

    How on earth a prosecution team can parade in a civilised court such a witness. It sounds a well cooked story from a fired maid who wants revenge from her former boss. Pocking her nose into her boss’ affairs to the extend of checking everything in her boss bedroom. As a learned judge I can’t take into consideration any story from such character even if there is some truth in it.

    1. Malawiana says:

      But then the Maid’s statement implicates Mphwiyo as well who was not her boss in any way. Mulowa basi!

  78. matiki says:

    Zayambika sopano

  79. koma says:

    How many lawyers do we hv in Malawi? Why do some pipo say Kasambara ali innocent? Whatever happened that night he is involved. Mphwiyo akuziwapo kanthu ponkakamila Ralph only that Mphwiyo is also a crook so pipo doubt the credibility of his story. Ose mbala,makhuluku mahule.

  80. CJ says:

    Whatever cross examination will come out, this woman sounds very credible. her story resonates with what all Malawians have all along suspected: Mphwiyo, Kasambara and Pika were all thieves. Eish…ma mediwa…..kukolopa kuchipindakuonso??Mai Kasambara, mkomya umafunika nokha

  81. Ziliko says:

    Kasambara’s wife was just doing what most wives do, protecting their husbands. Koma nde munthu wake akhale Ralph! Wamuonetsa zinthu mkazi wakeyu.

  82. Bonzo says:

    Even if Kasambara was to be found not guilty (which I doubt) I think there is NO doubt that he and Mphwiyo were in very monkey and dirty business. They knew each other. They did deals together. They STOLE our money together. They must ROT together . Judge Mtambo: your friends have so far sided with the people of Malawi. will you????

    I would competently say deal gone sour for both, Mphwiyo will have to tell the Court know where he got the bag of money and why he was giving it to Kasambara, Kasambara must also explain why Mphwiyo was giving him the bag! The maid must also b squeezed to tell the Court more as this might not have been the “first” time that this happened. The Mercedes which vanished from Kasambara’s house(and is believed 2b in Tanzania)must b brought back to Malawi! Koma guys antchito amaona zambiri, mukaputana mu banja m’nyumba amene amadziwa poyamba ndi maid. I believe the maid was telling the truth but Kasambara will rip her testimony apart, I pity her. By the how much r whistle blowers being paid for coming up with credible evidence on Cashgaters hidden loot, I mean the houses they bought and built, trucks which were hired out to Mota Engil and Vale Logistics etc, the cash and cars?

    Chonde Amai antchitowa apatseni
    chitetezo chokwanira chifukwa apa nkhani ndiye yatha basi Kasambala ndi mzake Mphwiyo akhoza kuwapha amaiwa. Kumapatsana ndalama muma sacker bag inuyo kumaoneka ma shasha pa town mukuba ndalama zaboma nonse ndende moyo wanu wonse apa basi osadzivera chisoni a judge audziwe umphawi

    I don’t believe this house girl, she is jealousy because she was fired and she is sitting phwiii at her home in Dowa…..tikukudziwa uwona zimene anawona Mphwiyo….

  88. concerned says:

    This case is not about cashgate. It is about the attempted murder of mphwiyo. So slowly evidence is coming out.

  89. Masoambeta says:

    I have always told you people that Paul Mphwiyo ndi katakwe. An official from RBM was facilitating all this mess.
    Paul has kept a lot of money he stole in the USA. Some of it is in South Africa. Prosecution will never get to the bottom of this issue until they dig deep. Investigate who is the perpetrator at RBM and he will reveal everything. I won’t mention the name but check who was at Chanco with him during his MSc.

  97. Can the revered counsel give us updates cause he has often times does the same.Looks like things are tightening abit now

  98. Diplomat says:

    Considering the masses who are suffering in this country because of these people, it is time wasting even seeing them in the courts. They are both guilty. Their properties and savings just need to be cofiscated by the state and let them face the firing squad. Looks like Malawians are stupid and sleepy.

  99. mgemi says:

    Umboni wa mayiyu ukumveka kwambiri. Its infact the trurh Mphwiyo is hiding. Now it weakens the case against kasambara because she is infact contradicting Mphwiyo. Trite law says if two state witness are contradicting each other courts resolve the issue in favour of accused. If its allowed Mphwiyo must be recalled to be quizzed on that one. Or he be arrested for that crime

  100. gribeta says:

    a mphwiyo anakapeleka zochepa nkumathawawa thawa mwini filim ali okay tiona. komanso mwini filimu atabwera kpanaga act nthumazi inamugwila mpaka kukabisa galimoto ku quarters???? shaaaaa! FBI yamalwi ndikudzabwera ndikudzakoka galimoto. ndikudzadziwa kuti anga nene chilungamo ndi wachikolopa koma tione kuti zimenezi tifika zazo pati?

  101. Titus Skoti says:

    Atambwali sametana amaopa kutemana. It is a racket and all the involved in this case are crooks. Akungotitaitsa nthawi ndi ndalama za boma onsewa ndi ma crook, mbava zachabe-chabe akudziwana. Mlandu uwu, the accused akalowe kenaka uyambe wa Mphwiyo wa money laundering nayenso akalowe ndipo akapezane ku maula komweko. By the way, last week I read in the Daily Times kuti in 1983 mlandu woba K8,500+ ya boma, munthu anamangidwa 12 years and his accomplices got about 8 years IHL, ndiye lero anthu akuba ma million, bwanji akulandira zaka zochepa? I don’t think the K8,000 in 1983 is equivalent to millions like zobedwa mu 2013, kaya kapena!!! I doubt. Deterrence ikufunika 20 years or more osati 6 years.

  103. malawian says:

    why was the maid sacked?

  104. ujeni says:

    Kasambara, Mphwiyo, the Manondos, Lutepo, Ken Lipenga, Patricia Kaliati, Henry Mussa etc are all involved in looting from 2005, Bingu was the master

  105. Surveillance says:

    I hope the witness is being accorded special security cuz ouch! I’m fearing for her life…

  106. Makape says:

    Mphwiyo must be taken to task. He was the master minder of cashgate. He knows reasons for his shooting. Bit cant reveal because the crime will be on him. Now this woman appears to tell truth but in essence she is contradicting Mphwiyo who is feigning ignorance. That weakens the case

  107. mwana mulopwana says:

    kuzipaka bibi kwayambika

  108. ujeni says:

    Can the ACB and Police arrest a woman called JANE KATHEWERA, she is boosting on Facebook to have corrupted some people at Road Traffic Offices in Lilongwe today to renew her licence. Fellow sick women are applauding her.

  109. Malawiana says:

    This seems a credible witness. We have always suspected that it was the issue of Mphwiyo trying to be clever in sharing the proceeds of crime which led to his shooting. I hope the judge responsible has the same instincts as we have and should do us justice by locking both the hell out of our sight.
