DPP officials implicated in Mzuzu violence: Malawi Police delay in taking suspects to court

Suspects being held by Police in  connection to the violence that erupted last week at a solidarity rally Malawi Congress Party (MCP) president Lazarus Chakwera held in Mzuzu city are reported to have implicate senior officials of the ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP).

According to press reports, Police have delayed to take the suspects to court following revelations that some DPP officials organised and sponsored the violence.

The top government officials are said to be interfering with police investigations so that they are shielded.

“There are top DPP officials who took advantage of PP’s situation (infighting) and masterminded the Chibavi violence,” The Daily Times newspaper on Monday quoted a source in the Criminal Investigations Department (CID).

The source said investigations are “clear” on DPP officials’ role in masterminding the violence but that Police officers fear for their jobs hence being manipulated on how to handle the case.

DPP has denied its involvement in the violence.

But opposition maintain that the ruling party is to blame for the political violence in the country.

Rumphi East MP, Kamlepo Kalua charged that the DPP is not fit to rule the nation as the party is led by violent individuals and accommodates cadres who engage in violence.

Five suspected arrested involved with the violence are: Thembisire Nkosi, 32 from Nkosi village, Traditional Authority Nthwalo in Mzimba; George Mwamtobe, 38, from Mwangukulu Village, Traditional Authority (T/A) Kilipula in Karonga; Lumbani Munthali, 29, from Matupi Village, T/A Chikulamayembe, Rumphi; Clive Nthakomwa, 52, of Malema Village, T/A Kyungu in Karonga; and, Frank Simwaka Kashololo, 30, from Kashololo Village, T/A Mwenewenya in Chitipa.

Mzimba West MP (PP) Harry Mkandawire who attended the rally, was forewarned by Mzomera Ngwira not attend because there was going to be violence.

Police are yet to question Mzomera on his role to the violence.

    So Kamulepu might possibly have a point in his claims about who were behind the whole plot!

    Jappie ñ Dausi what do u have to say?

    Protect the suspects quickly by putting them in custody otherwise their lives are in danger from the same dpp guru thugs that sent them to attack the opposition.

    Dpp thugs always try to eliminate any credible witnesses that will implicate them.

    So police hurry and protect the suspects before they are killed by dpp.

    I think people from the north are nuisance. You think you got the brains you just goat shit mixed with bull shit. I can’t believe in this story. Don’t use people to win popularity. this is just a conspiracy within your union PP ,MCP, AFORD DON’T GOOL US

  8. Buyelekhaya says:

    Delaying to take suspects to court because of pressure from some fingered political figures has its negative consequences.

    Next time the opposition rallies get attacked, the best solution would be to retaliate. And that is dangerous!

    Olemera ndi osauka kuwalirana, tinaziona izi kuyambira kale, only time will tell.

    DPP Kuyambira tsogoleri wake mpaka ma supporters ake nose ndinu makape

  12. I knew that zikwanje party is involved in the issue shame on these maggots and their puppet leader

  13. Mabuluku says:

    Zingowonetsansokuti nanu kafukufuku wanu ngopana pake. Ngati wa CID adakuuzani zonse bwanji inuyo ngati atola nkhani simudaulure zonse poti mwati police ikulephera kuima pachilungamo kamba ka akanganya olamulawa. Be patriotic otherwise you are the ones perpetrating violence in this country due to your unproffessionalism

  14. Mpunga Woviika..... says:

    Differentiate between DPP and PP,so these were PP guys Mzomera z there.

  15. Patriot says:

    A patrick Phiri mwalemera liti kuti muwanene azanu kuti ndi a mphawi? Look around yourself and feel ashamed of your stinking povelty before you diss others. If it were not for your begging for arms from your friends in crime (the DPP) you would not be talking those rotten stuff from your stupid foul mouth. Anyone with sober thinking would easily link the Mzuzu barbaric event to notorious DPP who used the foolish Mzomera to disturb what was all peaceful rally. Do you wonder why police are failing to even question your stupid criminal reverend? Do you wonder why police was not available to provide security when they were notified of the need to do so? Young as you may be please allow your inner self to rule you than being bulldozzed by silly politicians.

  16. Patrick Phiri says:

    Nzomera Ngwira is not a member of DPP, and yet he knew in advance that there would be violence and warned his colleague, Harry Mkandawire about it. How do you bring DPP in? Amphawi inu, mufera zomwezo.
