Msonda’s ‘kill gays’ case discontinued: SG says Malawi not ready to change anti-gay laws

The case against People’s Party (PP) publicity and administrative secretary Ken Msonda where he was accused of inciting violence against homosexuals has been discontinued.

Msonda: Off the hook

Msonda: Off the hook

Msonda was dragged to court by Centre for the Development of People (Cedep) and Centre for Human Rights and Rehabilitation (CHRR) for remarking that gays should be killed.

Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) Mary Kachale applied to court for the discontinuance of the case and the High Court has discharged Msonda.

Judiciary spokesman Malenga Mvula confirmed that the case has been thrown out following the DPP application but did not disclose the reasons.

Msonda described Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Intersex (LGBTI) people as being worse than dogs and that gays and lesbians were “sons and daughters of the devil”.

“Arresting them won’t address this problem because sooner or later they are being released on bail. The best way to deal with this problem is to KILL them!,” Msonda reportedly posted on his Facebook page.

Meanwhile, Solicitor General and secretary for Justice Janet Banda, has  said  Malawi government position on maintaining anti-gay laws “has not changed.”

Banda said that government allows debate on the matter so that people are more informed.

She said during a meeting government officials held with United States Special Envoy for the Human Rights of LGBTI persons, Randy Berry,  Malawi officials  made obligations to “prevent violence against the LGBTI community, to facilitate access to medical and health car.”

Banda however said the general consensus at the moment is that Malawi is not ready to change its laws and embrace homosexuality.

Berry, who said he was not in Malawi to convince the government to accept homosexuality, but to support and encourage the end of discrimination against LGBTI,   stressed that Malawi needs to allow debate on the issue for people to understand homosexuality issues, saying that the debate will only allow people to open up and end homophobia.

Under the current law, those found guilty of homosexuality in Malawi, could be sentenced to up to 14 years in prison with hard labour.

    I personally prayed for Msonda’s victory on this. I Praise God for this.

  10. Igabel says:

    These things were written in the Bible for our knowledge.It is abomination unto God but the devil is tirelessly working to justify and mislead people.

  12. Makamuchiwo says:

    Koma Gay wa ku Americayu………….Berry wapita? Let him carry with him this statement back to America ………. Malawians would rather be poor or die with hunger than accept their monies with strings attached!

    We also have the authority to dissolve CEDEP and CHRR! I reapeat, Malawians says , No to LGBTIs. GOD knew better that HE created man and woman.

    I hate chi Fletcher Kaiya. Fletcher Kaiya is a devil in sheep’s skin. He is also advocating for gays and lesbians. He is an idiot. He is disguising himself as reverend yet he is servant of Lucifer and is bent on finding clients of Lucifer. Stupid idiot, imbecile, lunatic mxxiiii.

  14. thdhdh says:

    You dont kill people for their lifestyles no matter how ugly. If you kill them where is the salvation there ? Would jesus do that? I think its not a problem for those gays only but the whole society.

  15. Stevoh says:

    Berry go back home we dnt want u there we knw how to handle our problem please leave us alone or else u wl be the first one to be introuble

  16. Charombanthu says:

    Msonda is a Christian. The Bible in Leviticus 20 v 13 is very clear. No beating about the bush.

  17. Zikundiwawa says:

    Dnt wory Mr Nsonda choonadi sichitheka kukhalilidwa. Onse omwe akuchita mchitidwewu ndiofunika kuphedwa basi pamodzi ndi ma Judge nonse ndi pitala emweyo, kodi pitala naweso paja zako ndi zomwezi mufa imfa zowawa

  18. The Lawyer says:

    we still need to kill them all

  19. Nellyn Mwadiwa says:

    Evil is masquerading in the guise of democratic rights. It is camouflaged in the likeness of love for your brother who cannot help it but live in abomination as he was born just like that. The love of God for every human being is now being misunderstood deliberately so, to mean compromising that which God abhors. Is it any wonder then that even the word of God is being twisted to accommodate sin in the Church of God?

  20. chemboche says:

    Very shame to see someone blabbing his mouth producing poignant words over Almighty GOD. To muson: I say you are a man, please dont give up until these american and british billionaires understand that: we are not gays. The aim of devil is to bring down all the believers that is why he is try harder to win, however he is using money to win our favour. Shame!!!!!!

  21. Kuwila Chilambo says:

    It greatly puzzles me that those that support homosexuality were yet born as a result of sexual union between their mothers and fathers. Would they be born if their fathers used the male anus? Shame on you all gays and supporters of gayism. Your eternal abode is the scorching hell. Stop both the practice and support of gayism immediately before death triumphs over you.

  22. pamajiga says:

    Jesus is the WINNER! We praise you God for saving Msonda.

  23. Mr.Bambo says:

    Kenako tikanamva kuti kugona ndi nyama kaya kuti ziweto simulandu ndi ufulu wa ma minority,according to foolish Mtambo and Trapence.

  24. Phiri says:

    Msonda is survivor, believe it or not. I said this before you started dragging him to courts you questionable lawyers who do not know your own law. He could not stand against any Gay case because they is no law that recognize gays on this land. If you find gays please take them into prisons or hide them somewhere so that we cannot see them.

  25. patrick phiri says:

    mr trapence f inded ur fightng 4de gayz iwant 2mary u with mtambo no prblm ndikwatira chiwiri ur satanist God shud punish u accordngly zausilu basi kufuna kutchuka kapena chani ili ndi dziko mind u mudzafa.

  26. Sonera Banda says:

    As I dont understa why some People are attracted to same sex. I Wold not kill The for being not like me. Killing a human being is a sin. NO one has right. If Malawi start killing homosexuell They are commiting same murder like killing Albinos. Those Who agree to these are sinnes in the eyes of God. Let God alone judge Them.

  27. Funzo says:

    There is a huge difference between disliking homosexuals and calling for their murder.

    I would like to see the DPP’s reasoning but, like so many other stories on Nyasa Times, I doubt if we shall ever hear any follow up.

    So much for the Warm Heart of Africe. Readng these comments, it is more like the Wanton Hate of Malawi!

  28. Masozi Mwenifumbo says:

    Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people (Proverbs 14:34) A wise king winnows the wicked and drives the wheel over them. (Proverbs 26:26). Take away the dross from silver, and the smith has material for a vessel. Take away the wicked from the presence of the king, and his throne will be established in righteousness (Proverbs25:4-5).
    When a land transgresses, IT HAS MANY RULERS, BUT WITH A MAN OF UNDERSTANDING AND KNOWLEDGE, ITS STABILITY WILL LONG CONTINUE (Proverbs28:2) A ruler who LACKS UNDERSTANDING IS A CRUEL OPPRESSOR, but he who hates unjust gain will prolong his days (Proverbs28:16). . When the righteous triumph, there is great glory, but when the wicked rise, people hide themselves (Proverbs28:12).
    When the wicked rise, people hide themselves, BUT WHEN THEY PERISH, THE RIGHTEOUS INCREASE (Proverbs 28:28)

    Some of us and many others said it . . .
    Be not afraid, for the battle is more spiritual than physical and God would not leave you alone.
    Even if the battle was to go physical be not afraid coz you wouldnt be alone. Malawi would be with you.
    ………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………
    These people have dropped the charges not because they are good-hearted but . . .
    . . . they know there is no charge here . . .
    Even if they were to create one, they knew they would not win the case in court coz . . .
    . . . its easier to create a case than to defend it . . .
    Even so by whatever magic they were to buy the mouth of a judge and win the case, they were afraid . . .
    . . . they would make friends with the few gays but more enemies with the general population . . .

    Simply put, we are the many and they are the few; and there is strength in numbers.
    ……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..
    To you gays:

    ” . . . . A day will come when you think you are safe and happy, and your joy will turn to ashes . . . .” – Tyrion Lannister (Game of Thrones)

    Know this that those defending you are enslaved by their own conscience. They are free yet slaves in their own country. They are divided among themselves and do not know what they are doing. I shall send confusion in their camp, says the Lord. This is it!

    You better continue to live in your hiding, lest you meet your death – which shall mark the beginning of your eternal suffering. Delay it when you have the time.

    It’s an advice from a friend.

    I think people are very open about being homophobic coz it has religious backing! I am sorry your bigots, hatred fueled by religion (christian) will never win! We as humans decide what is moral and whats not! Your gods and jesus are part of your imagination, they are fake! Just like big foot!! To take your bibles and use them like toilet paper, thats about how useful the “word of imaginary jewish god is”! you will never win, evidence is more “moral” and true than some myths written some 3000 years ago! you gods are a joke, they are so absurd even to retards, your christianity is NONSENSE!

  31. Mphwache says:

    Let me say this from the beginning, ” I AM TOTALLY AGAINST LGBT BEHAVIOUR”, but i do not believe such people should be oppressed or mistreated for having weird sex in their bedrooms. What they should not be allowed to do is show their affections in public, BECAUSE ITS VERY OFFENSIVE. I happen to know that even heterosexual people do sometimes have weird sex in their bedrooms, but nobody persecutes them. I also believe, the word “MARRIAGE” is the reserve of the union of a man and a woman (as traditionally defined). There is no scope for allowance of marriage rights to those who do not follow the formula.

    In my view it is WRONG to arrest and prosecute those who practice this behaviour in the confines of their bedrooms, because we just create fame and matrydom for those we arrest. And this is what they want. But Malawi must come out strictly with anyone bringing this disrepute to the public with FINES and CUSTODIAL SENTENCES. Let those Europeans and Americans know this.

    Can Malawi police arrest Berry as he has said that he is a gay. Please arrest him even if donors do not give us money. Its okay. Berry should not see America again but be sent to Guatamolo prison in Afgahnistan now now.He can not say that he is a gay in the God fearing nation. We don’t recognize gays.Please police handcuff Berry instantly.
