MP Kamlepo alleges receiving death threats from DPP, reveals the names

Parliament’s Public Accounts Committee (PAC) vice-chairperson Kamlepo Kalua  has claimed to have received a threat to his life on the mobile phone  and through public utterances of officials from ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP).

Kamlepo: T

Kamlepo: If they are innoncent of cashgate why threatening me

Kalua claimed DPP’s “political terorrists” had been organised to assassinate him for his outspoken comments that there are seven serving Cabinet ministers implicated in the report as disclosed by Auditor General.

But the Rumphi East member of Parliament (People’s Party-PP) and PP third vice-president,   has vowed that no amount of threats will stop  him from exposing corrupt gangsters.

“As a citizen of Malawi and someone who loves my country I will not be intimidated by anyone. My stand still remains. All corrupt people should pay for taking Malawians as fools. This is not about regions or tribes.As Malawians let us all unite to stop this nonsense once and for all,” Kalua said in a statement he took to his Facebook page.

“Since my calls to have the corrupt ministers exposed..I have been receiving death threats and unnecessary threats from those in power. For those who listened to the rally the State President addressed  in Thyolo..my name was all over in their  mouths,” stated Kalua.

Kalua also cited remarks at presidential rally by DPP regional governor for the south Charles Kamchacha that ” Tiauza a nyamata athu ma cadet athane naye Kamlepo [we will deploy our militia DPP cadres  to deal with Kamlepo]”

He also stated that fellow members of parliament have been threatening him with death  and exposed them as MP Maluwa from Chikwawa ( DPP) using mobile number 0999933771 and  MP Kalimanjila of Nsanje central  (DPP)  mobile number 0888323546.

Kalua said he was making the MP’s   death threats in public “so that Malawians should know what type of leaders we have in parliament.”

Apparently, Kalua had been vocal in demanding the dismissal of the said seven Cabinet ministers named in the forensic audit report covering the period 2009 to December 2014 which established that about K236 billion and not K577 billion in public funds as initially estimated could not be accounted for.

He wondered: “ If these people are innocent why are they threatening me?”

DPP has a history of abductions and killings.

Said Kalua: “Malawians are still waiting to hear the verdict on the deaths we have witnessed during the DPP era: Robert Chasowa (RIP) 20 July victims  (RIP). We are a democratic country and as such I will never be intimidated.”

On Monday  President Peter Mutharika gave the legislator  24-hour ultimatum to disclose names of serving Cabinet ministers implicated in the recent forensic audit report.

Kalua insists  he has the names  of cashgate suspects but  challenged that he would not provide the names as per Mutharika’s request because he had no such mandate to name and shame.

“Is he [the President] serious that I should travel from [in Lilongwe] just to give him names when there is an office responsible right there, the Anti-Corruption Bureau [ACB] and the Auditor General which have these files and are public offices?

“The President has told Malawians that he does not work on ultimatums, but he is issuing one to me. I also don’t like ultimatums,” Kalua is quoted as saying.

Kalua argued that the President could not claim that he did not have the names when the Attorney General had advised the Auditor General against releasing the names when the demand was first made after the forensic audit was released.

He said: “How can the President reconcile that the Auditor General went to the Attorney General to seek guidance on releasing names and he was advised against the idea? What names was the Auditor General referring to?”

Auditor General Stepheson Kamphasa said the Attorney General’s office had advised against releasing the names of individuals and businesses named in the audit report for fear of legal implications and jeopardising investigations.

I don’t think Kamlepo Kaliwo (KK) is the right person to mention these 7 names. He is blowing the whistle. when has it become wrong to blow such an important wizulo? If he is lying he will be ashamed and if he is telling the truth, let the truth prevail. It is the responsibility of AG and ACB or even the president himself if indeed he has the names to let the cat out of the sack. Why are we wasting much of our time discussing results of which require a competent governance structure to respond/ act to? APM should… Read more »

why is Kamlepo failing to name the 7 ministers? If what he is saying is true, let him come to the open name the ministers for the world to see else he should shut up and will conclude that he really smokes marijuana!

Kamlepo is very stupid indeed. He has been asked to name the 7 ministers and he is not. He is a LIER PERIOD. He thinks Prof Peter is like ACHEYA when he was bloke could make noise and ACHEYA wetted in his pant thereafter giving him money / minibus / hospital bills for his father.kikikikikiki….Prof Peter cant be moved with Kamlepop’s threat. Prof Peter is a great Statesman and an International Lawyer cant be swayed by a JC holder Kamlepo and all those that admire Kamlepo’s empty head

KANCHENGA.. There is no reason to mention a tribe of people. Address your comments to the MPs who have been mentioned by Mr Kamlepo. There is nothing wrong to be Sena. They are people just as good as any peopLe / tribe in Malawi. There are a lot of bad cultural practices in Malawi among the different tribes in the country. So, have manners in your comments.

There are names but Kamlepo is right AG office and ACB office are held responsible. This will mean that no trust in Mathanyula and we will demand a new govt to see who are these minister hidden under the rap to face justice and therefore we need this just to prevail no wonder Joice Banda said there should be stubborn link yes.

Malawi is really out of track, political hatred is not a solution to the sinking ship that we are in, frankly speaking with a sober mind pple like kamplepo are of great significance to the political drive that we have, when commenting be realistic and think about our sons and daughters, if the situation continues to be like this where will malawi be in ten yrs to come,this is a simple issue the report is out then let names be released if APM is innocent lest he not interfere with findings, i think he’s vested with powers to work out… Read more »

I strongly believe that Kamlepo wastes his energy on wrong issues and wrong platforms. Yes we have rampant corruption in this country and firing the 7 unknown Ministers is just removing the symptom and not the disease. The right platform is the very Parliament where Kamlepo and others would pressurize government to put systems that would remove excessive powers from the executive in appointments of people. Iam of the view that even before a cabinet Minister is sworn in, parliament should scrutinize such appointments( Malawi way). These are the issues that Kamlepo should have been fighting instead of becoming personal… Read more »

Now you know why I always call them dpp thugs. Mbendera has gone mysteriously simply because he could have revealed what really happened in 2014 elections. He was now dispensable like a condom. Also because he comes from the same district as the vp who you dpp thugs from the south hate. Watch anyani inu, if you kill kamlepo, you will see what will follow. It is your incompetence and corruption right from the dpp head to the foot soldiers bootlickers that is bringing the country down. Honestly no person in his right mind can vote for these dpp thugs… Read more »

DPP ndi chipani cha zigawenga. no wonder pano anthu angophedwa chisawawa mmanyumba mwawo. But i doubt if Peter Mutharika himself will not see the axe that has fallen on some of those who have tortured Malawians recently…
