Malawi Police re-arrest Dauka Manondo on alleged plot ‘to kill witnesses’

One of the suspects in the ongoing case of the attempted assassination of former budget director Paul Mphwiyo, has been re-arrested , Police have confirmed.

Dauka Manondo was rearrested on Tuesday and taken to Kanengo Police station on suspicion of “wanting to kill witnesses and prosecutors.”

Police confirmed the arrest of Dauka but could not divulge more information.

Dauka’s brother, Pika Manondo, who is also a suspect in the shooting case said police, had refused relatives and lawyers to visit his brother.

“We are suspecting foul play in the way they are treating him,” he said.

Manondo brothers, lawyer Ralph Kasambara and MacDonald Kumwembe former Malawi Defence Force employee who had been convicted for robbery in 2005, are accused in the case.

Mphwiyo’s shooting on September 13, 2013 outside his house in Lilongwe opened a can of worms that led to the revelation of Cashgate, in which public officers, politicians and businesspersons looted billions of taxpayers money.

Why not get the big fish rather than overlooking the acts of those big fishes…? It is unfair but as the saying goes…if you are a nobody in society, you have no where to go for support.
