Lutepo confessions: Series 2; Episode 1 – Muckraking Extra

It must be quite a nightmare to be Oswald Lutepo’s lawyer. You see, the guy is all over the place pleading ‘not guilty’ today while tomorrow he is making statements owning up to all the crimes he is alleged to have committed.

Lutepo:  Chief suspect in cashgate

Lutepo: Chief suspect in cashgatea

And he goes all over the place implicating just about everyone.

Of course he made everyone’s job easy when he confessed he is actually a pathological liar whose tongue must be believed at one’s own peril.

The trouble is, of course, he has not stopped talking. So how will we judge that these are outright lies, these are half-truths, these are truths?

I know Lutepo is scared man. He knows he faces a long jail-term and financial ruin from which he might not recover. But he is not helping himself by being all over the place, saying everything while communicating nothing.

The only clear and uncontested truth in all his ramblings is that he is not denying the fact that he is a gullible man ready to be used by all manner of people as long as he lays his hands on a cool billion here, a couple of millions there.

Can someone tell Mr. Lutepo that there is one term for such a person? A thief. And thieves belong to jail!

From the myriad statements he has made I am not sure where is the wisdom in pleading ‘not guilty’ when all what he is saying is that he knowingly allowed himself to be used to steal government money.

Perhaps it is high time Mr. Lutepo stole a leaf (for he seems to like stealing) from that Senzani woman and stopped wasting everyone’s time. His lawyer might negotiate a light sentence for him.

He is still a young man; after, say, three years he will still be on the right side of 40. He may pick himself up, dust himself up and re-invent himself and hopefully embark on a more honest life.

By the way, why is he in hiding? Hiding from what? The very truth he is trying to profess? Is the guy not acting confused?

I will tell you why I think he is confused. The guy is asking us to forgive him for the hardships his selfish acts visited upon us. And yet he is hiding from the same law that could have confirmed his remorse and exact the right penance for him to atone for his sins.

And, by the way, this guy – by his own unwitting admission – likes to be used by others to further their criminal interests as long as there is a good cut for him.

Can we not extrapolate that he is also possibly being used by certain people to deflect attention from certain things that are not going exactly right somewhere?

I am not too sure but I am prepared to wait for the next episode of the ‘Lutepo Confessions’ which, I believe, is undergoing final edits as I write this.

    If Lutepo has evidence he should taik ton the right Authority not on the air or any media house what does he want to acheive

  2. Bwana nkubwa says:

    When a famous drug kingpin Frank Lucas was busted running multi million drug business by NYPD, he didn’t waste time and resources to save himself but what he did was just to snitch on every drug lord he knew including Police officers who might have snitched on him. At the end of his trial Lucas helped NYPD jail close to 50 drug lords and corrupt police officers. In return he got a lesser sentence and today he is a free man. I believe Oswald can learn a lot from this Yankee story and probably reveal everyone who might have benefited from cash gate including top government officials who are still serving as long as he has evidence.

      YOU MUST BE MAD YOURSELF, JUSTICE IS GOTTEN IN THE COURTS NOT IN THE STREETS WITH THE RADIOS, IF WHAT HE CLAIMS HOLD ANY WATER, WHY NOT GO TO COURT AND LET THE COURT ITSELF DETERMINE WHO IS THE WITCH? WHY HAS THE GOVERNMENT THEN DECIDED TO WITHDRAW ITS PRESS RELEASE IF AT ALL THERE IS ANY SENSE IN ALL THESE CLAIMS? SIMUNGAVOMEREZE KUTI MUNALASA PAMBALI, TINKANENA IFE, WE ARE YET TO SEE THE CLUITY OF REALITY HERE

  9. Stain Mabangwe says:

    Having gone through your article one fails to understand what you are trying to put across.Are you sympathetic or sarcastic ? Can you walk into my office and draw a chq of MK 100 million fully signed by me and authorised by me and I deny you tomorrow claiming that I don’t know you? Who are you speaking for? Remember the hon former president has a string of lawyers who are ready to defend her. Do not speak for them, let the former president clear her name through the instutions set by the country, the courts.

  10. Let God reveal more on cash gate!

    THE GOVERNMENT HAS PURPOSELY IGNORED CALLS BY THE JUDICIARY TO INCREASE ITS STAFF SALARY. THIS IS A CLEVER MOVE BY GOVERNMENT WHO WANTS JUDICIARY STAFF TO GO ON STRIKE AND SO PROLONG THE CASHGATE CASES.THIS IS BECAUSE TOP GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS WHO ALSO FORM PART OF TODAYS GOVERNMENT WHERE INVOLVED IN THE LOOTING OF FUNDS. TODAY I AM HERE TO DECLARE WAR ON ALL THE PEOPLE WHO WANT TO UNDERMINE THE RULE OF LAW IN MALAWI. WE SHALL WORK UNTIL EVERY CRIMINAL IS BROUGHT TO BOOK.PAY OR NO PAY. REMEMBER ME. THIS IS JUST THE BEGINNING.YOURS TRULLY – NZERU ZOZAMA

  12. Omex70 says:

    We know that he is being used by DPP to make the senseless utterance which he is making now.

  13. Chilungamo Chimawawa says:

    Lutepo will commit suicide now i guess

  14. Tiko says:

    If u were in his shoes, you would do the same after being fooled and deserted by crooked politicians. I for one would take his apology and encourage him to gather anything that may work as evidence against the real beneficiaries of cashgate, for the courts will use nothing but credible evidence.

  15. MKWAPU says:

    LYNCH THE BASTARD!!!!!!!

  16. Plebian says:

    It is the duty of the court to pass judgement on Lutepo but layman wisdom tells me that he is quity as charged & sentenced to 160 years with the Hardest Labour. For DPP you are digging your own grave as when the next report say Peter was in 2005-2012 cashgate, Lutepo will also come forth to confess your dirt.

  17. drf says:

    HERE IS SOMEBODY WHO IS ADMITTING THAT HE REALLY THIEVED.. and the law makers leave him alone? What more evidence does the prosecutor (DPP) want..whether JB is involved or not is another story but this Lutepo, through the interview on ZBS, has admitted in his own words that he is a ‘cashgater’!

    can the courts catch him now and do the needful based on his own confessions which can be used as evidence that he did indeed ‘thieved’ in billions!

    His accomplices is another case altogether but catch this guy NOW!

    1. YOKWIYA says:

      Yes, why is he walking free after such confession. Zodiac should have called the police to arrest him. This case is a done case. It should not take long to conclude in court. The man has confessed. Let him be tried in the chamber. Forget about support staff. If you delay he will commit suicide. Police what are you doing?

  18. Patriot says:

    Uyu wofunika nkupatsa MAXIMUM SENTENCE.

  19. dpp says:

    DPP under panic, bwezani boma kwa rightful winner. God is not happy with you, the office you are occupying does not belong to you ndiye unya uona.

    1. Joyce Chanthunya says:

      Panic on what? You are the ones who are panicking after being exposed. Shame on immoral Malawians who can shamelessly steal in the name of charity – Mudzi Transformation, one cow one family……on and on and on……rubbish!

  20. snaiper says:

    That’s our Tenthani

  21. BATUMEYO says:

    Why hiding If you are really sure of what you are telling malawians??? mr man you are not serious !!! what is your level of education ???

    you must be an IDIOT !for terrorising my country ( malawi)

  22. Andrew phiri says:

    PP knows something & mwatenthekatu apa. DPP iribe phuma, calculated move.

  23. Charles Harawa says:

    I have listened to Lutepo’s confession and I think Raphael Tenthani – you are becoming very cinical. Your cinicism is failing you to appreciate several things. 1. Yes Lutepo has lied, but every person caught red handed in as big as corruption case as his, should still be given the leverage for us to appreciate the stories he gives. Lutepo says he was being used as a conduit for Joyce Banda’s corruption for the benefit of herself and her People’s Party. Where do you get the audacity to minimize such a credible allegation? Are you trying to deflect the attention of the matter away from Joyce Banda by way of his previous lies? I thought people caught cheating first of all deny the allegations and accept responsibility thereafter having seen that their attempts to lie have failed! What is strange with Lutepo’s previous lies and his confession now? 2. Lutepo says he was not alone as Joyce Banda’s conduit. How can you minimize that by way of saying that he might be used by others to deflect public attention away from the current economic woes? When will you and others begin to appreciate that the wheels of justice have the capacity to work? I thought you are a journalist, why don’t you probe to find out whether there is an underhand that is motivating Lutepo to smear others? Will you be surprised when Ralph Kasambara comes out in the open to spill the beans as well. Will you be surprised when Mphwiyo does the same? Will you be surprised when Brown Mpinganjira comes out to implicate Joyce Banda? 3. Lutepo also says he has evidence. Will you not be the first one as a reporter to verify the confessions with some independent objective evidence? Instead of being a journalist, you come here to spill your hatred for the present government so that Malawians remain with no truthful explanation for why and how cashgate took place. Is it not counter-intuitive for someone to be steal such billions of money from government using the normal channels without approval from the top authority? If the PP is audited, you will see where the money used for campaign was coming from!!! Grow up Raphael Tenthani and be a little objective next time and stop trying to make a name by being anti-government all the time.

  24. Dick says:

    BUT WHY ARE THESE CASES TAKING LONG TO CONCLUDE?

  25. murupwana says:

    lutepo is a lunatic bribed by dpp

    1. Charles Harawa says:

      Are you suggesting that a liar cannot confess? If every liar confesses, then he must have been bribed by government? Some idiocy is beyond appalling!

      1. M23 says:

        What are the chances that his confessions are lies? Significant. Even in court the same would be applied. He is doing all this to save his own ass. Don’t be fooled this guy is remorseful.
