Happy Kumwenda told journalists on hospital bed at St Johns Hospital in Mzuzu that he was shot around 7pm at his residence in Nzirawaingwe when he was out talking to his guard.

“A saloon pulled up, there were three men in the car, one of them took a gun and shot me,” said Kumwenda, claiming he knows one of the men who was in the car.

The gun-shot survivor however said he did not know the motive behind the attempt on his life.

Police said they recovered a live bullet and bullet shell at the scene of the incident.

The law enforcers said they are investigating the matter therefore they could not give details on the attempted murder.

The DPP is yet to comment on the matter.

    Mkuluyu akuti amanyenga mkazi wamwiniwake. Amene ndi M’burundi. Abulundiwa samalani nawo, iwo anazolowela nkhondo kwao and akuphani.

    Dpp and all oppositions are quiet, not a single official condemnation from the govt of the fact that someone has used a gun to shoot someone at his house. Just to condemn the shooting, it doesn’t matter whether it was justifiable or not. After all, a senior north dpp official has been shot.

    Why the silence from dpp up to now? Not even condemning the shooting? I am not saying you should interfere with police investigations but just to condemn the shooting act.

    If this is a political shooting against dpp, then it is the beginning of something big in the north, I tell you. Let us hope it is not.

    Wish you a quick recovery, Happy and hopefully we will find out the motive of the shooting and culprits arrested.

    Kuluza zisankho tisamachite ngati taluza yamanja. Ndiye anthu angadzasankhe bwanji zipani zanu ngati mukupha mukadali kutsutsa. Ask MCP why they keep loosing in South and North then think again for another strategy

  14. mmmmmmm asakane ameneyo akuziwapo kanthu munthu sungaomberedwe popanda miladu

  15. Kamuzu Chilembwe says:

    Please tell these politicians – PP, DPP or UDF and corrupt civil servants like the Mpwiyoz and accomplices that we poor Malawians will never shed any tears or sympathize with them when they kill each other. All these are consequences of evil money. Our suffering is because of them. They will all go to hell!!

  16. Wapamtima says:

    My nation to make our life better here mudziko lowawali. Boma lichotse MK liyikepo US$. to use US$ can make our life nice.

  18. Waxxy says:

    Onse a DPP aphedwe basi amalawi sitingamavutike iwowa akumasangalala spending taxpayers money.

  19. DR.CASHGATE says:

    This is just like Mphwiyo scenario.

  20. dadaboma says:

    You must be very brave to wear DDP identity in the North. DPP hates the north, and the natural reaction of the north can only be resentment to anything or anyone identifying with DPP – simple. Is it not DPP that instituted quota system? Is it not DPP that killed 20 Mzuzu residents during July 20, 2011 demonstrations? Is it not DPP that …..?

  21. SONG says:

    Angwazi adati Multiparty ndi nkhondo siizi, kuphwasamula ndimfuti a Malawi tokhatokha shame. How do people possess illegal guns it is unbelievable. Something needs to be done. Angwazi amatanthauza zimenezi kunalibe izi kale. Enafe tinakula osamva kuti wina waphedwa ndi mfuti mmamidzi kapena mmatouni.

  22. Beast Msonda says:

    Some people’s minds are rotten. Why attempting to take the life of your fellow human being and your own country mate? What a sick mind is this? What wrong has he committed that warrants him to die?

  23. Ayo says:

    Walakwa chani mzanu?

  24. Bob says:

    Eee Khaya ekha.

  25. First things first. We want a probe on Chasowa’s death, Njauju and ka chule ka DPP kakhale kumapeto.
    Zintchito zake zakachitira umboni. Ask Mphwiyo. Ufukula zambiri chombwe iwe!

  26. haha says:

    Mukudwiwani atambwali inu. Ife zisatikhudze.

  27. La 40 Lakwana says:

    It seems that he knows very well the people who shot him ,then the matter is not political but something very personal between the four of them. May be its another cash gate issues. The truth will be known

  28. Brazilian Wax says:

    Malawi, lets not degenerate to this point. We may differ in political ideology but we are one. Tiyeni tikhale okonda mtendere. I just guess the motivation behind this heinous act is not political. May be it’s based on other issues.

  29. Ayobeee de Zobue says:

    Amai, attempted assassination. Zikuvutani.

  30. 2 lost Decades says:

    Why wasting time investigating wen the victim knows who shot him

  31. Khwethemu says:

    They will say it was the opposition. A garu inu mukufuna kuphana nokha. If u know one of the culprits, why not identify him now kuti asathawire ku Joni? Wabodza. Propaganda

  32. ANTI-GAY says:

    Crime rate is low in Malawi under DPP government. This guy was shot at the back and yet he knows one of the shooters?????? How possible. Ok ndiye kuti amathawa akudziwapo kanthu.
    And if you say you know one of the people in the car then just go to his house and arrest him.

  33. La 40 says:

    We may be witnessing another deal gone sour. Mphwiyo 2

  34. MHELIWA says:

    HEE GUN ???

  35. Nyani wa ku Mwananyani says:

    If Mr Kumwenda was an official from UDF, MCP, or PP, the usual haters would rush to heap blame on DPP! Prima facie. Asa.

  36. mbodzole says:

    atumbuka they hate democracy kumwenda chose his party and they don’t like those who are for dpp. kodi atumbuka inu chipanda bingu mzuzu bwezi akuoneka bwanji to day. kudalibe nseu watala kumeneko no street lights. even shopping mall, grand Paris those things started to be rumoured of being belt while bingu was alive. your friend has chosen the party you want and now you want to kill him. anthu osayamika. gati inu sindinaonepo

  37. Mark Saoneka says:

    That’s bad!

  38. Mangulenje. Practising clean politics are not voters job but government. If government is not practising clean, fair which does not favour one tribe one region how can those who voted for them practising clean politics? Malawians have done that since indepedence butnment after governnt has let down people and tream like idiots. How long can a man stand out? For them killing is not aproblem, when to keep power and stealing. No one shall stop them to steal. I am sure the man knows why they want to shoot him. Its Cash Gate. This will not finish. Malawi need a completely different leader not UDF, DDP and PP. These are all same blood and have been in stealing scurd since Muluzi. They change names but not their stealing system. They blame each other and afraid that if I dont win the other one will review me. This is why no governement of one of mentioned will take up Cash gete serious BECAUSE ALL OF THEM ARE INVOLVED. If APM was clean he could have been taken this cases so seriouly to make himself popular. But he is afraid. The donors sem Malasians knows. Idiots see him as a good man different from his brother but heis more worse than his bbrother in reality. Hidding in his failure prof. Title.
