Kasambara ‘critical’ in hospital: Cardiac condition

Prominent lawyer Ralph Kasambara has been moved from jail to a hospital, where he is being treated under police guard for a heart ailment.

Kasambara: Hospitalised

Kasambara was remanded to prison on Wednesday after Justice Michael Mtambo ruled that his bail must be revoked because there was evidence that he infringed on the privacy of the judges, hence he did not comply with bail conditions.

He is a suspect in the shooting of former budget director, Paul Mphwiyo who survived assassination attempt in 2013.

The lawyer was put behind bars at Maula Prison and transferred on Thursday to Zomba Maximum Prison.

Kasambara, a prominent lawyer with a rock star status in Malawi, had a scheduled appointment for his heart problem on Thursday, hence he asked judge not to send him to prison before the crucial check up.

His condition worsened on Friday and prison authorities took him to Mwaiwathu Hospital in Blantyre but he was referred to Adventist Hospital where they have a heart specialist.

Despite being guarded, Kasambara’s wife is paying a vigil at her husband’s bedside as his health condition is now “critical”, according to doctors at the facility.

He is reported to have developed a “serious cardiac condition.”

The lawyer is currently in Intensive Care Unit.

This is the second time for Kasambara to suffer serious ailment after an arrest.

He also suffered a similar condition when he was arrested during the DPP regime under late president Bingu wa Mutharika. Kasambara was accused of kidnapping and torturing three men he told reporters had confessed they had been sent by the DPP government to firebomb his office.

Kasambara’s arrest came after he was quoted in the media saying President Mutharika “wants to be a dictator” and should be impeached.


Meanwhile, Kasambara has appealed for a stay on the bail revocation and also on the ruling itself while his co-accuse Macdonald Kumwembe has appealed against the contempt of court sentence and the conviction.

In his initial response to the appeals, Supreme Judge Lovemore Chikopa found the applications imprudent as the applicants had not given any proof that the matter had been appealed in the lower court.

“I find the application imprudent, that such an application has come to this court before the lower courts. I am, therefore, inclined they be served as interparty. I reserve 30th September as the day of the ruling,” reads the response in part.

Furthermore, Chikopa wrote that he found the applications peculiar as they had landed on his desk beyond normal working hours and quite late in the day.

    You may debate all your can but Kasambara knows the truth of what type of evil things he has done to innocent people. Mwazi wa munthu ndiobvuta, once shed we may think we have gotten away with but there comes a time when we have to pay in one way or another and usually its over seemingly simple issues like these. we all have to learn that what goes around comes around. Lets learn to be good before God and oue fellow hman beings

  2. mihavani says:

    Vw -gate,you are a sorry sourthen online dpp asslicker,now by masquerading as a “Tonga” so that you can plant hatred among northeners and disturb the north you think you are acting a mature “play” huh? Tongas cant be part of you guys,you have a laughable system of marriage-chikamwini,that makes you the only type of people who practice this trash, the whole world,and you cant be accepted by any tribe on earth,if you were a messenger at kasambara’d law firm,and now you are scared that your job might be in jeopardy after your boss’s incapacitation,just take a chill pill be a man to accept that some bad events are uncontrollable,you may have loved kasambara to be freed,but hey,shit happens,just grow some balla and swallow it,finally you southerners can (mis)rule this country for a 100 more years to come,but there shall never come a good leader from the south,leadership is not your field,mumango kakamiza,when God was creating malawi,he said to the northeners! I bless thee with ntellect!!and it happened,then when creating sourtheners he said,i bless the with the populations!! and it came to pass as we see now.

  3. Omex70 says:

    This man has inflicted untold sufferings to many Malawians. He is the most evil lawyer in Malawi. I know he has some stupid sympathizers who are showing their blind support here.

  4. vw-gate says:

    Wadada Mihavani mwasintha dzina now you calling yourself Bulutu.

    Okay Bulutu: the fact is mtumbuka sakhululuka. Anzathu akumwera have one thing in common with ife atonga. Sachedwa kukhululuka see how Ben Phiri managed kukhulukira his assailants in PP.

    Yet you have Mtambo recruiting himself as a hangman on a smallest of an opportunity!

    And that is your weakness atumbuka. On federalism, forget it no sane minded Tonga will support that nonsense. To be subjected to tumbuka monsters? We are better off with the Chilimas or Chakweras than Nyika mafias as our leaders.

    In fact if I had the request to make to Dausi, is to think of weakening the north by considering re-demarketing it into two separate regions. Create north east region from parts of noth Nkhotakota, Nkhata Bay, parts of Karonga and likoma islands. Create Nyika Republic out of Rumphi and Mzimba or rename it North West Region.

    Foolish tumbukas you will never rule Malawi!

    Dziko lapansi ndi anthu ake. Only God knows the truth.

  6. Mphita Konyeliwa says:

    The fact is that Kasambara has got gud papers than Mtambo and that Mtambo’s client lost a case against Kasambara so this is a witch hunting

  7. bulutu says:

    Vw-gate,why are you people bringing old bingu era issues into this case? Just because mtambo volunteered to represent that poor rubina lady should not make these two enemies,so you wanted no lawyer to represent that lady,and I hear Ralph denied DNA test,is that true? Is that justice? Do you know the sensitivity and specificity of DNA paternal tests Mr Vw? Its one gold standard tests for forensic medicine and Ralph ran away from it,and tou want him now to get away with the law the same way,alright,go on preach the tumbuka vs Tonga hatred,we don’t give a flying damn at bulshit luke that,you can even advise those behind you that now you have renounced your northenship and now you belong to the central or sourthen region,we will not give a shit,we will still roll as northeners like that,with or without you guys,now we planning federalism and we are making it happen,sit there and watch,this journey us for us the firm hearted,not delusional weak minded confusionists like you with chronic paranoia,what sort of people are you who suspect foul play in everything? Eeee

  8. vengeance-gate says:

    So Michael Mtambo has decided to play three rolls in one case: a state witness (because he claims the suspects want to kill him), a state prosecutor and then a judge. Ho ho ho – that career itha ngati salu yamakati.

    Retribution: that’s the true character of mtumbuka. Sayiwala olo utafa.

  9. phelezunje says:

    as leaders chosen try to save pple honestly with ur true love otherwise God will punish us @ the end of service here on earth.

  10. Vw gate says:

    Wadada Mihavani: you are wrong and in simplistic terms you portray a lack of common sense and pure logic.

    The case here is that judge Mtambo is not qualified to handle this case. Why?: It is a case where it touches on him – he says Kasambara and Kumwembe have been following him. In other words the suspects want to assassinate him. There is another issuee: Kasambara has hinted that they have a long standing unsettled issue between them which predates Bingu’s era when he was cabinet minister. (It is a case of vengeance, mwapulika?)

    Are you sure in view of all this that it is right that he continues to preside over this case? If you continue to answer yes to this question then – you must have been consumming too much aspartame rich drinks like most Malawians, such that over the years half of your brain has become useless.

    All Tonga vote to aChewa, no to tumbukas. They are stupid!

  11. Tuyuni says:

    Wishing you all the best Kasambara, whether you’re involved in cashgate scandal,money laundering or in Mphwiyo’s attempted murder or not, but we still love you100% how much money have these Chewas robed from goverment? How many cases have they been involved too but no any arrest? we love you because you’re a voice of voiceless and a fearless Man. Wishing You aquick recovery.

  12. howard Chiks says:

    He has been the most hiden dracular. That’s what most recycled lawyers and politicians are . Raph is our mirror but I wish him a cashgate heroes death and rest as we malawians starve.

    Tangomtayani kasambalayo.

  33. It is very unfortunate that cashgate trials press against them that benefitted little from the move leaving behind the most prominent cashgaters who masterminded the who cashgate project. The evil of politics is that only small fish are pressed side by side but the big fish know how to escape the net. Look, you will see that the reserve bank governor of that time is not pressed yet a lot of money were being withdrawn from the bank with his approval.

  35. mihavani says:

    VW-gate,why so insecure with the proceedings?if ralph will not be happy with the outcome of this case,he has the right to appeal,but again its laughable how from this single incident or two you can draw a conclusion that northerners hate Tongas,C’mon!! don’t act like some anti northerners who when for example, rejected by a northern lady,they go on rampage cursing the entire region of north being “pompous”,such type of generalizations are a manifestation of severe lack of reasoning,if delivery of justice will tow the tribal lines then thus skewed,your very emphasis that justice mtambo must let Ralph free on account that they are both northerners speaks alot of your IQ,you are the reason sone malawians acuse us the north ernes that”timakondelana”,and I have to clear people here that we northerners are not like what Mr vw-gate wants all of you to believe,Mr vw-gate go on with your campaign of sowing seeds of hatred among northerners,but you will not achieve anything on these lobola practicing people you will just waste your time.

    Of all pipo, y Kasambala? Its coz he found himself wrong side of the game. No cry oh, thats how it goes. Whether Tonga or Tumbuka we dont care.. Thats the process bwana.

  40. Release Kasambara No Detention Without Trial says:

    There was a time when we were made to believe that atumbuka are intelligent people. Now looking at the performance of people like Mtambo, DPP Kachale, Goodall Gondwe and the former vice president Kachale you wonder if that belief still holds.

    To me they all potray one common thing which is lack of simple logic. I think it is good that Malawi is ruled by aChewa. Because if Mtambo can persecute someone as a mayor judge, what would be the case if he was a head of state. Would he not persecute an entire village? No vote to a tumbuka!

  41. Bololo says:


  42. Ndaninso says:

    Atumbuka persecuting one another. Mtambo killing Kasambara. Mulomwe alichete! Using Tmbukas to kill each other. Kupusa! When will this stop! It started nthawi ya Kamuzu. Atumbuka betraying one another. Iwe Mtambo why are you killing one of your own blood. Stupid Mtambo!

  43. Billy says:

    yyyyyes lets pray for these people

  44. Tina says:

    Guilty is not covered by illness. As long as Judge Ntambo is not abusing his office power so as Government seniors includes current president. Being from Malawi in general it’s a shame some people are still creating Stigma for HIV patients. This is absolutely nothing. Lots of diseases takes pills everyday and kills people faster than HIV patients who are guaranteed that, they may stay for the Rest of their life. Anthu osadwala kumafa ngati nkhuku. Mulungu wakwiya. HIV people exist lots and lots even in Europe country. They are never insulted. Ignorance, Stigma are serious in Malawi

    But majority here you are too jealous and for nothing. This jealous is the one killing innocent people, allowing government to spend more money to prosecute people like Ralph and no Civil Servants pay ready. You are still clamping hands and getting excited without realising the poor governing of our country.

    Get me right, may be Ralph is wrong but does government really needed to spend money for arranging such move living mosquitoes the whole Malawi. He he he he he Malawians write here what you want your money to do Malaria everyday.

    You see this Ralph your government will still spend alot of money than serving the most needy now. Fight for the good country, the money you are claiming from Cashgate thieves will never come to save you today.

  46. VW - gate says:

    Mihavani: one question – which is logical for a court of justice to ask: state to prove a guilt of alleged offender or to force an alleged offender himself to prove his innocence?

    Clearly what Mtambo is doing here is not natural. He is biased. He is full of hate and retributive. He is misusing his judicial powers. It is all wrong.

    Now: time has come for Malawians to realise that atumbuka hate atonga. And from now onwards I will campaign against any Tonga vote for a tumbuka candidate. Yes! Time has come no more Tonga vote in Tonga speaking constituencies for a tumbuka speaking candidate!

  47. tiatumbuka says:

    Akudwala Lutepiasis caused by wanton stealing of government money. The disease is acquired from a species of heartless animals called Lutepo. It is spreading fast, however the condition is curable by simply jumping onto a whell chair and taking a dose of 11 years IHL at a maximum prison. Lutepiasis is however contacted only by carelesness and only by selfish pple who don’t care about the suffering of others. Such patients deserve permanent quarantine.

  48. King Jaffe Joffer says:

    The real Satan is Mphwiyo who as Budget Director was directly responsible for sucking billions of kwachas from Account No. 1. Kasambara’s attempted murder on Mphwiyo is a blessing in disguise for trying to eliminate the most heinous individual in this country. And like Judas Iscariot, while his act is deplorable, it saved the nation from collapse. Mphwiyo is the greatest Satan!!

    get well soon Ralph,but to clear the mist ,many heart diseases are treatable in Malawi,may be Ralph had a preference of Doctors,even a final year medical student can treat these heart conditions,cardiologists services are sought in highly complicated cardiac pathologies which don’t respond to basic medication,treatment of heart diseases is learnt for six years in college (undergraduate) and 11-12 years for consultant Doctors that we have in Malawi,dont tarnish the reputation of the learned Doctors as if they have failed to treat a simple condition luke that,I want to addute people on this forum that a wide range of heart diseases are treatable in Malawi,and they shouldn’t worry,only that this is attached to politics,if it were a heart valve problem or anything requiring heart surgery or transplant I would agree,not the many treatable heart conditions that ee have in Malawi by drugs,no please.

Or else we are going to ask a foreign cardiologist to examine and give in his/her opinion. We know all of Ralf’s tricks and will not run away. Bakili Muluzi faked illness, Atupele Muluzi did the same, Ralf you have been doing this for along time. This is not the first time. You stole lots of kwachas and wanted to kill mphwiyo. Now we want Justice to be done. Medical Council of Malawi may u please assess these acts appropriately as you normally do

  90. the truth says:

    Malawi a paid off country, you can buy anything eg serious illnesses, police arrest, judges , witnesses etc.SC Ralph kasambala is faking his illness to escape sleeping in Zomba maximum prison .Wonders shall never end first it was lutepo now its Kasambala yet innocent remandees are shaved into land cruises to kamuzu where there is literally no medicine yet gangsters are accorded the best health care even when faking sickness. God is watching. The judge have been vindicated these guys are playing delaying tactics.


    Last week Kasambara compared corrupt Bhushiri to Jesus! Hope as a man of God will make his magic and make him well so that he continue with his defence. Where is Bhushiri to pray for Kasambara to get well as a man of God? Don,t worry my brother in corruption,u will get well soon,ur God Bhushiri will make u well. He soon was claiming to be innocent,now they revoked his bail …now cardiac ailment! Is this cardiac ailment legit or part of the plan with Bhushiri to get out or avoid jail term?

  94. Mzee says:

    Osayinamizira cashgate. Malawi has never been a rich country since creation. Our poverty stems from lack of nzeru. How on earth can a country be impoverished by $20 million? The country does not produce and export enough to generate forex. If stealing was bad India could have been poorer than Malawi. Kuno kulibe katangale just go to the Indo continent koma they have TATA and they can put a satellite in the sky. Stealing is bad but its not why we are poor. Dont forget also that crime is a multi billion industry that drives the world economy. Just imagine what would happen to USA if suddenly there was no crime how many can lose their jobs? Jails police judges security companies lawyers intelligence officers social welfare officers guns handicuffs etc.

  108. moya says:

    Let government send an independent doctor who is not corrupt otherwise we are tired of these tricks of people pretending to be so sick just to get away from jail condition. Send this man back until he proves his innocence. We have other pressing matters to deal with like the washington DC circus team spending tax money carelessly.

  109. The guarantor says:

    Bushiri will pray for him. We do not know what his heart is suffering from but what he’s suffering from is called jail disease or syndrome. These guyz do know their HIV status also. His fellows then r in new york we may want another plain crash for them so that we vote again. Me as a guarantor we will see bad occurrences. Ralph can be better helped at kasoba health centre.

    ..the arrest was unnecessary…this Judge must recuse himself from the case
    …the State has rested its case, the “accused” is not a threat to state witnesses or investigations…that part of the trial is finished.
    …presiding officer cannot be a referee and player at the same time

  116. Ma says:

    Ralph is behind bars because he said that this idiot dog APM is becoming a dictator.

    Ralph was very polite by calling APM a dictator but in real sense he is a big fool together with all his well wishers & followers.

    APM you are a very useless professor of law and a shame to all those who studied law in the whole world.

  124. John says:

    This man is a crook and should not get away with what he did. Malawians are suffering now because of such kind of people. Apart from hunger, citizens are worried of security for themselves and their businesses. How can a foreigner invest in the country when he will be thinking he might get killed at any time? Like Bingu said… This guy is a crook and he should face the arm of justice. I remember when Joice bands made him justice minister, the first thing he did was to get himself 20 millions of Kwacha for compensation for being jailed. I would never forget that. He is not fit to be a public servant, has no heart of people In him.

  125. vw - gate says:

    A Mtambo mwapha Kasambara. Ine ndinayamba kalekale kudandaula za atumbuka. Munthu wachitonga mumamuumila moyo zedi inu atumbuka. Atumbuka mumadana ndi atonga zedi from time immemorial- from the days of Aleke Banda vs Chakufwa Chihana.

    It is sad kuti my fellow Tonga’s are too thick to pick on this and seem too dull to see that this exists.

    Why should you revoke Kasambara’s bail just for asking you to step aside because you are not best placed to judge justly? If anything iwe Mtambo siukanadikira kuti wina achitekukuwuza, if you were a credible professional ukanangotsikapo wekha pamenepo.

    You are simply clinging in to settle your scores with Kasambara which is abuse of office and abuse of human rights.

    Mr Mtambo mwatenga nsambi, mwapha munthu wosalakwa. And soon TIME will prove you wrong.

    Atonga learn from this. Atumbuka watitijinga ukongwa! Trust me achewa are more friendly and accommodative to tongas than atumbuka.

Let his blood be on you,mtambo, mary and blood kids for they know de truth but sanje. Which cash gate money is he involved. Witness refuted to tesfy, which law on earth the judge becomes prosecutor as well as a judge zimatero. Zikutiwawa dont turn malawi into bloodshed. We want justice, nzeru ndi chibadwa ask how many brothers he has? All graduates.

    I now believe he is not faking it. I wish him quick recovery. He need to recover to be where he belong. The prison

  130. Georges Mhango says:

    It is sad that Judge Mtambo is persecuting a fellow lawyer who he feels with his bias is already guilty before the defence proves its case.It is interesting that Mtambo has become the accuser and the judge. Mtambo is personally entangled in the case and it is surprising that he has refused to recurse himself from the case. Does he think that other judges are not compitent enough to handle this case? A Mtambo ili ndi dziko. You can pretend to be clever5 today. But u can not always be clever. Kunali anzanu. Nthawi zinatu mukagona try to reflect whether u have never broken the law yourself before deserving to be in jail. How I wish I was Mtambo. I would have known the consequences of being fired. Time will tell and one day no matter how long it will take the law will cash up with you.

    Mtambo have u ever imagined that the Current DPP is involved in a new cashgate? Taking DPP sympathisers who have no purpose to UNGA is a new form of Cash gate. Mind u Mtambo Jesus once said if u have never sinned then take stones and stone this woman. In addition justice should not only be done but it must seen being done.

    1. Baba wa boy says:

      So you are saying lawyers should look after each other? But when politicians do look after each other you complain?!!

      Mwateta Mhango. Then we are back to the removing himself from the case, or lawyers should not go to court because all Judges are lawyers.

    2. DRAKE says:

      Mr George you wanted Judge Mtambo to be intimidated, being followed by criminals and infringing on his private life to remain quet. Whether its your friend or Brother Kasambara is very pompus and arrogant. Whether is a Lawyer or what, no body is above the Law, Kasambara needs to be very exemplary in His behaviour and its high time that Government need to strip him of his Licence to practice as a Lawyer. He is a disgrace to the profession, he has commited uncounted injustices to people and this his time to face the law which he was practicing and sending people to Jail. If Kasambara is innocent the Judiciary will prove it if not he will have to serve the prison sentence

    No heart specialist at Mwaiwathu? And this is a premier hospital, mainly owned and manned by aphunzisi akachenjede (College of Medicine Profs)? Not even a non-Malawian? How do we explain this to taxpayers, when people in dire straits, like Mr Kasambara, can’t competent and appropriate medical attention?
    We can’t all head down to Sasaflika.

  139. Dr. Mwenefumbo says:

    This is very questionable as there is a readable pattern about people feigning sickness’. We need an independent assessment by either Dr. Martin Mwaiponya (based in LL). He is a devout christian and man of great honesty. He can’t be bribed. Dr. Tiffany Priester take care. You can be used by this crook or murderer. Eventually you will tarnish image of BAH. What is the diagnosis of this so called serious cardiac condition? If not get an independent cardiologist outside this country? JUDGE Mtambo I can tell you with certainty this guy isfaking illness. He is a mafia. Medical Council of Malawi look into this. Is this guy HIV positive and on ART? Is this congestive cardiac failure? Is this myocardial infarction? Is he having atrial fibrillation? We need to wipe Malawi of these crooks and this country will be better. Judge Mtambo and all concerned lawyers please do something about this. The law can’t be raped in our own eyes. I will be satisfied if evidence support that he is sick and if he is assessed by at least 2,independent cardiologists
