MCP MP says Mutharika-led DPP behind ‘terrorists’ of albinos in Malawi: Dzoole claims to have evidence

An opposition parliamentarian on Thursday nearly sent the House into fresh turmoil when he claimed the ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) leaders were behind the brutal killings of persons with albinism.

Dzoole Mwale:   I haver evidence its DPP responsible for albino killings

Dzoole Mwale: I haver evidence its DPP responsible for albino killings

Lilongwe Msozi MP Vitus Dzoole Mwale claimed he had evidence to back his allegation.

He was contributing to a private member’s motion by Dowa east MP Richard Chimwendo Banda who was imploring upon the House to review the Anatomy Act so as to give more powers to courts to mete out the stiffest punishment on abductions and killings of people with albinism.

“I have the evidence. You can go to Ntcheu Police, a senior DPP official went there in order to force the police let out a suspect in the murder of a person with albinism,” said Dzoole, known for his humour of picking and sizing up DPP senior officials in parliament for political verbal war.

However, Speaker Richard Msowoya forced him to withdraw the allegations, telling him that the legislators were debating a serious matter which needed serious debate and attention.

“The honourable member should not trivialise this matter, this is a serious issue,” said Msowoya and Dzoole Mwale gave in and apologised.

Senior DPP officials, including vice presidents George Chaponda and Goodall Gondwe just looked on probably as a tactic to avoid derailing the national budget debate.

Dzoole Mwale said no albino was killed during the Malawi Congress Party era when Kamuzu was in power – of course people believed such people never died but dissapeared.

Minister of Justice Sam Tembenu said the drafting of relevant laws targeting at ending the abductions and killings of people with albinism have been completed.

He said Chancellor College’s Law Department have done the drafting and will soon be presented in parliament so that abductors and killers face the maximum penalty.

Tembenu said in addition, the government has already trained police prosecutors on the existing and coming laws of the abductions and killings of people with albinism.

The minister also announced that the government has appointed a desk officer of the abductions and killings and is based at the ministry of Justice headquarters.

O…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………O If there is a speaker who doesnt inspire, this Msowoya is. Inu Chitonga/Chilomwe/Chisena choti “Kutsutsa galu nkukumba”, simunachimvepo? . . . Look at your deputy, Mcheka-Chilenje. When any MP seems to have taken one too many, and starts speaking in strange tongue, all that Chilenje says is “Bring evidence” and the MP is given a specific date for the same. ………………………………………………………………………………….. Nanga . . . . . . Was Dzoole Mwale drunk when he made the allegations? for us to say the beer was speaking? No! But even if he was drunk, dont you know that “In vivo veritas… Read more »

Yes indeed we missed a chance here because dzoole actually knows the DPP official who went to police to have the culprit released . He should have continued to explain to the nation who this person is and why he wanted a murder released. Instead he asks dzoole to apologise foolishness from every corner in Malawi. As for the minister mentioned it was obvious they were getting in a fix if Dzoole is not stopped. What did you expect them to say when they were indeed aware that their own had gone to have a murder released. The quilts are… Read more »

The killing of fellow human beings (whether free from any physical affliction or suffering from albinism, or other physical challenges)in general is the most serious crime that can be committed.

Therefore, instead of dismissing the claims made by Hon. Dzoole in Parliament, the purported evidence should be pursued. It is wrong to prejudge that the Hon MP is trivializing the issue. On the contrary, it would be trivializing the matter by dismissing the claims out of hand
