Kamlepo still at large as MRA, Malawi Police return vehicles

Malawi Revenue Authority (MRA) and Malawi Police Service on Tuesday returned the three vehicles belonging to firebrand politician Kamlepo Kalua and his son which they seized by the two State agencies but Kalua remains missing.

The High Court in Blantyre ordered the two State agencies to release the vehicle and gave  Kalua a temporal relief from an imminent arrest in connection with his alleged tax evasion.

MRA officers accompanied by armed police last Wednesday raided the house of the Rumphi East member of Parliament (MP) and also of his son Penjani where they seized his Mercedes Benz and a Toyota V8 belonging to the son on allegations that they were smuggled into the country.

A day later, the police went back to Kalua’s house with their own search warrant and towed a grounded Jeep belonging to the MP on allegations that it was stolen.

”They have returned the vehicles today,” said Penjani, son of the outspoken politician.

But he expressed concern that the politician is still missing since last week.

“We fear for his life. None in our family knows his whereabouts. It’s unlike of him. We are afraid,” Penjani told Nyasa Times.

Before he went missing, Kalua described the raids at his houses and that of his son as political witch-hunting aimed at intimidating and harassing him.

People’s Party which Kalua serves as Vice President also expressed concern about his missing.

    As a nation we need to step up enough of this talks. we need to you unite and figh for our rights. The issue of Kamlepo just proves how far this autocratic government is going to destroy our nation. Through massive corruption and silencing out spoken citizens. That stands out to speak out about the dangerous and evil activities happening in government. Another problem is that Institutions are being used and are gang up to root out people who are demanding for transparency, accountability, and fighting the abuse of power. Instead of governing the country in democratic way, We are now being led by Mafias led by the Mafioso on top of power chain. And no one will know until it’s too late. We need to unite together with civil societies and other institutions to stop this mess.

    MRA is idiot it doesn’t know what it is supposed to do. How can u confiscate cars and bring them back the next day. U closed up Times Group but u opened it up the next day. Now can u see how stupid and incompetent u are? U use our money to do your good for nothing operations without achieving anything. If u are working for somebody he is just compromising your integrity and u are all mbuzi meeeeee !!!!!!!!!!!!!!! meeeeeeeeeeee !!!!!!!!!!!!!

  19. Papa Chalo says:

    Be sensible. Idiots argue idiotically. Why breaking into one’s compound? Mbava and a Chifwamba anthu awa. Even prophets were running away for their lives. You don’t give away life carelessly. Landani katundu proceduraly. MRA inali kuti all this time? In that case how many people are in Malawi, who are not vocal (quiet) but have not paid taxes?

    MACRA nanunso ngobowa you disturb Internet and other media to save your corrupt govt. Where is Joy Radio for instance? Whenever there is a hot issue concerning govt you za usaveji. Don’t worry God is approaching your area kuzasesa. Ngati mukukayika just wait.

    Inunso a Lilongwe water board, why blame Chinsapo people kuyipitsa madzi? Is Kamuzu dam at Malingundu after Chinsapo? Aku Lilongwe muli pa mavuto

    Nanunso amagetsi: “Generation of power is a problem because Liwonde River is not supplying enough water”. Do you remember that lame excuse statement?
    Show us the Liwonde River you were talking about.

    To crown it all, the Govt likuzunza anthu in all category. Nanunso anthu, mukuwotcha akuba simall items osakawotcha wakuba chimanga chankhaninkhani uja bwa?

    Lets hope this will not turn into another Njaunju scenario.
    This would mean DPP losing all the votes from the north. The repeat of the Njaunju is very dangerous in a democratic country like ours. This does not give DPP any vote at all.

  21. Kango says:

    I can see Malawi going on fire if indeed this ends up to be an assassination. This brutal action can never be allowed!!!

    1. Gonapamuhanya says:

      You want to kill him yourselves so that you can blame it on government and get more votes from the north?
      Mwauponda ndithu. Nkhanga zaona kusanache

    Don’t dare to harm Kamlepo otherwise you will invite troubles for yourselves

  23. gamazula says:

    Kuthawa mpaka koma ma guys a PP ndi amatha sizinawoneke

  24. smart says:

    Sometimes,when we back the Govt we should as well be asking ourselves.The govt without proper evidence grabbed Kamleepo ‘s vehicles using our taxes,and now giving them back to him using our taxes and yet they fail to arrest someone found red handed with Forex and cash against law of the land.In this case which was a simpler task to carry out by govt? It is pathetic to think that some ill people back up the govt for stupid mistakes and yet they can’t see the great mistakes they let go.

  25. Richard Soko says:

    Do not bring back old MCP tsctics from the backdoor. This is a democracy.

  30. Gutete says:

    Funny how in Malawi people with skeletons in their closets are quick to throw the first stone!

    I feel sorry when people back up people who break the law and claim political persecution when the law is taking course!

    And our courts are so corrupt they are quick to give relief to the law breakers.

    Let Kamlepo and his son pay the required amount of duty on their ill-gotten wealth!

  31. Kennedy says:

    Dpp will learn a big lesson if they have done anything to him. I can forsee lhomwe Genicide. Mark my words, will excute and strangle all lhomwes.
