Masangwi not mafia or smuggler, says brother Salule

An elder brother to  ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) lawmaker Noel Masangwi, associate professor Ted Salule Masangwi has said the DPP politician’s life is being put “in danger” by Nyasa Times comments depicting him as mafia or smuggler.

Masangwi: Described by President Peter Mutharika as a 'smuggler'

Masangwi: Described by President Peter Mutharika as a ‘smuggler’

Salule in a comment posted on Nyasa Times, said the comments posted online are “not only defamatory and slanderous” to his brother but “are also clearly putting his life in danger.”

President Peter Mutharika is on record describing Masangwi as a “smuggler” in a leaked gossip talk.

And recently Malawi Revenue Authority (MRA) boss Ralph Kamoto suspended commissioner for exports Shadrec Namalomba for facilitating to clear nine trucks belonging to Noel Masangwi of round wood from Chikangawa meant for export. The DPP heavyweight reportedly silenced MRA officials from doing their job following the seizure of his trucks.

But Salule accuses Nyasa Times of “deliberately and systematically” painting Noel Masangwi my as “a monster” in the minds of the new site’s readership.

He wrote: “You were even the first to tell lies to Malawians that my brother was involved in the Chasowa murder way before the Commission of inquiry was instituted.”

Masangwi is among the prime suspects in the death of Malawi Polytechnic student Robert Chasowa,

But his brother argued: “One would not be far from the truth to conclude that the carefully chosen witnesses to frame my brother got motivation from [Nyasa Times].

“As a family we respect the courts and we have not wanted to comment on the Chasowa case until the courts come to conclusions.”

However, Salule said Nyasa Times “continued vilification” of MP Masangwi has forced him to come out to express “our concern as a family. It is too much now.”

  8. Tozer Tsono says:

    Well, if your brother is innocent, the courts will let every slanderer feel the pain. However, before the courts have voiced their opinion, Mr Professor you run the risk of being a slanderer yourself.
    You cannot claim that you know what your brother does every single minute night and day, otherwise why hasn’t your brother sued the slanderers himself?
    In the event your brother goes to court, you have just invited yourself to testify on what you claim you know about your brother activities. Let the law take its course and fight the issue in court.

    tell it to the birds professor!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  14. kapambwe says:

    For the whole Associate Proffessor to stoop so low because of a common thief, savage, in any case a waste of time like that chap it means he also is of the same vice. Birds of a further flock together. The whole President of the Republic commented in lighter moment’s of the character this miscreant is without breaking his breath. Take notice that if any other government comes to power apart from this one, that government shall resuscitate that case. People are dying in Malawi because of floods and he happens to be the causative agent. He has cut almost all trees at Dzalanyama forest. That building he has built along Malawi Housing Corporation Road, next to Robbins park shall be sold to cover-up for the trees he has been cutting as the trees he is exporting, all proceeds are going towards the same. It shall not be forfeture act, no. but the Ministry of Forestry and people of that area shall apply to court for redress so that the proceeds that shall be recovered from that sell shall cover-up for new tree plantations. Greedy people. Nyooooooo. Muzaziona mulandu suola.

  15. Dzakondidzomweudya says:

    I feel sorry for the highly learned professor, because integrity is a matter of being honest even when you are all alone, and the fact that you respect the court which present a probability that your young brother might be declared innocent because justice will be gagged by evil, leaves a lot to be desired and your motive questionable.

    If I were you my learned professor, I would have known that you do not defend a child from offences he commits when playing with friends unless if you are also a gangster and you are aware of what is going on.

    Protect your honorable name by sitting down with your sibling and tell him to be straight, other wise if you think that we are going to forgive him because you support his ways you are pathetic and damaging your name worse than what you are trying to defend.

    In case you haven’t heard of ETHICS go back in the library and help yourself.

Malingana ndi umboni uli pano, palibepo chimene noel sanapange pa ntchito za mdiyelekezi. Ambuye amuchitire chifundo.

  17. chaiwone wawo says:

    Instead of focusing your attention to Nyasatimes, Salule you better focus your attention to the young brother. Inculcate in him patriotism and responsible citizenship. It will pay off because you will not lose your face as has happened now.

  18. Kasinja Mfula says:

    Being you brother Prof you were not supposed to come on such a public forum otherwise you are attracting more criticism than sympathy. In addition, no one would expect you saying your brother has vices in public. Sorry prof withdraw your PR statement.

  19. chatonda says:

    Salule Masangwi should behave and be sober and remain quiet otherwise he is like his brother too. Amadya nawo. shit

  30. sunderstar says:

    This man is a thug and evil and you cant just defend him simply because he is your brother. He implicated ESCOM employees when he forcefully forced himself in a tender rocess which was closed. HE MUST CHANGE or else one day he will be arrested and heavily charged, people have tangible evidence against him and he is cruel by birth. Let him accept Jesus as his personal saviour and repent all the evil he has commited.

  31. wellie says:

    yours Salule is a family of crooks and mafias remmember that relation of yours sentenced to 10years IHL for armed robbery and he escaped at Mphupyu prison with only a fortinite to go of his sentence if the family is concerned and you being the eldest alangize ma mafioso akowo why only him of all people in politics dont point fingers at nyasatimes. Zodya mwana zimapota wamkulu kumene as a family call your thieving relation and talk to him asanaotchedwe kkkk

  32. phiri la dzunje says:

    iwe Salule whatever your name is you are a very stupid person how can you defend someone like Noel who masterminded all these bad behaviours that people are talking about here you are indeed living in the world of your own tell your stupid brother to prove himself that he is clean your so callad brother is a smuggler a killer and a mafia he deserve to be hanged stupid idiot

  33. Truth says:

    Masagwi helps to smuggle goods for Malawians and that is good because whatever money they make is ploughed back into the economy. I know more Malawian cross border people have developed because of him. and as for Chasowa the boy was stupid to start a game that did not belong to him. the stupid boy deserved to die.

  34. Mlosimailosi says:

    Iwe Salule,tangolimbikila masamu akowo basi but frankly speaking your brother is what people are saying.How many times has he been caught offloading uncleared goods by mra.He receives money from importers as if he is mra and never remits any to mra.He has cleared containers of jigs,cooking oil for cross boarder women traders,paints and canned beers for his close ally in Ndirande.

    He is the man through his crooked means who wanted to destroy business for the chilobwe superett guy and Lutepos freight company.He took away land from Alufandika which was supposed to be part of robins park using political power.Salule tell us if indeed you stay in Malawi.You must be the first person to know the dirty deals of your brother having known him from youth.

    For your own information your brother will answer all this because come 2019 we are putting back John Bande coz we made a mistake.We will ask Bande to come back to DPP.
    Putting this thug on this position.As for Peter he is not wrong to call him smuggler as this best describes him.ASK GG CAR HIRE.Nyasa times continue doing the good job.There is no where you have reported what does not beffitingly described Noel.Akuwononga chipan ndi boma lomwe likanathaniza a Malawi.

  50. Zidura Ntengo Undigwere says:

    I think the Masangwi family should take NyasaTimes to court, and allege defamation/disrepute, or what have you. There are enough grounds for this.
    Poke some holes into NyasaT’s pockets; and they are NOT deep. The website seem to be anti-Masangwi, period. …accusing Noel Masangwi pretty well of anything possible. Calling him unsavory names. This has to stop!

    1. Kuonafisi Sikubadwakale says:

      “unsavory names?”, that’s rich. Noel Masangwi has caused a lot of people a lot of pain. One of the things people have not mentioned in their comments is the fact that Noel, together with Lewis Ngalande, organises DPP violence. These two have maimed some innocent Malawians. During Bingu’s second term they were a law unto themselves: Directing youth cadets to beat up people in full view of the police, and they didn’t care whether the victims were women (remember Kalinde at Chileka? Kasambwe and friend at Goliati?).

      Noel Masangwi certainly is no angel; in fact it is fair to say that what people know of him is only a fraction of what he has actually done…

    The truth shall set u free..it really pains

  53. Chidongo says:

    Your brother portrays himself as such in word and deed, it’s nobody’s fault but his own. He needs personal overhaul and tangible transformation if public opinion of him has to change. I suggest you may do well to sit him down, it’s not too late and beyond your competence. Nanga APM ndi “nyasa times” kapena mwamuopa?
