Mphwiyo: Gun-shot survivor guard is ex-presidential security man

The guard, Mr Mphangazira was seen on Tuesday with  Mphwiyo at the High Court in Lilongwe where prosecution and defence lawyers made their final submissions in the case where former minister of Justice and Constitutional Affairs Ralph Kasambara and four others are accused of attempting to murder the former budget director.

Kasambara, who is representing himself, is being charged alongside the Manondo brothers—Pika and Dauka—James Kumwembe and Robert Kadzuwa.

Mphwiyo spent the whole day at the court with Mphangazira sitting next to him.

Meanwhile, after Nyasa Times first reported that Malawi Government has partially disarmed former president’s security detail, it has been confirmed,

Government has disarmed two of the security officers that Banda has been using since leaving office after her loss in the May 20 2014 Tripartite Elections.

Former president Banda’s press aide Tusekelo Mwanyongo said the security personnel were told that the firearms were being taken away to balance with what the other former president Bakili Muluzi (1994 to 2004) security people have.

“If the reason provided was genuine, we have no issue. Actually, we are not complaining because the rest of the firearms are still intact,” Mwanyongo is quoted by The Nation on Tuesday.

Banda has been out of the country since July last year, flying between the United States of America, Europe and Africa (notably, Ethiopia and South Africa), addressing various international fora.

She is expected to return home next month and former first gentleman Richard Banda arrived in the country last week to prepare for his wife’s return.

Some of the former president’s major engagements include meeting former United States president Bill Clinton at the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) in Morocco on May 5 and receiving of her doctorate degree on May 15.

    Mphangazira anali nyamata wothamangathamanga ku DPP and he is a civilian. Unless if you tell me that he is providing security to the Cash Gate suspect privately. When JB become President he was trained how to handle a rifle and he was one of the trusted guards for JB. Ndi munthu wamba ameneyu olo ku school sanapite. Ngati anafika form 2 ndakayika.

    Next time tizamva kuti Mphwiyo anadumpha ku body ya land rover ali mu unyolo and he has smashed his cashgate brain at the Tarmac road.Ndi mmene imathera milandu imeneyi ikafika potentha.Koma anthu timalangidwa pa dziko lapansi mpopano.Mzimu ya anthu imasowa panadol ku central pano ikufuula while others were splashing looted tax payers on beers and bitches surrounded by vultures around pampering him that he is big man.Some was spent in Zuma land on Chardonnay washing their throats with expensive meals while an average Malawian cannot even afford a loaf of bread.Evil people they should all rot in prison and their properties forfeited.No need to glorify the mphwiyos,Lutepo and others.They are simply thieves.

  9. Kenkkk says:

    I hope they don’t eliminate Mphwiyo and try to blame on each other including JB. Who assigned this man to Mphwiyo, is it JB or DPP deliberately doing it to raise more suspicions? Is this bodyguard still a government employee or private? Either way it is not an intelligent move by either side!!!

    This is a very difficult case. Lets wait and see. Justice according to law is unjust.

  15. sakamundende says:

    who has deployed him to Mphwiyo? is mphwiyo entitled to that kind of security? something clandestine here.
    waiting for episode three if not more

  16. jean jella says:

    What are mary kachale priorities.
    After testifying in his shooting case they shouldn’t be any special consideration for Mphwiyo.
    This guy masterminded the theft of billions from government coffers.
    Speed up his trial
