Non Catholics behind church brawl: Malawi Police arrest 15

It has emerged that some non-Catholics were behind the plot to have a fight at Likuni Parish in the Capital City Lilongwe with ulterior motive to dent the influential church’s image after its scathing pastoral letter recently, Nyasa Times understands.

The plot to have the fight was hatched by some regime thugs who promised some choir members that they will be shielded from police arrests or prosecution.

One of the choir members told Nyasa Times, that he was approached by non- Catholic members who he recognises to be connected to governing party, to propose that the choir split and that if others disagree, should cause a fight. Money was promised for this action.

The member was too frightened to reveal more, saying the people behind were “powerful” and “well connected” to the state apparatus.

On Sunday a fight indeed erupted among Catholic Christians Likuni Parish in the Capital City.

Police in Lilongwe have since arrested 15 people whom the law enforcers say are ring leaders in the violence that erupted.

Lilongwe police spokesman Kingsley Dandaula confirmed the arrest of the 15 and they were remanded at Lilongwe Police Station.

“They have been charged with conduct likely to cause breach of peace and they will be appearing in court on Monday,” Dandaula said.

He said it will be up to the suspects to apply for bail when they appear in court.

The police were called in at the parish after a fight broke out following disagreements.

The Lilongwe Diocese officials are yet to comment on the matter.

    That’s the APP I know; staged 20th July demos, staged tripartite general elections ballot paper boxes found along the roads, staged CSO carnival, staged prayers, staged improvement of economy debate on mbc tv & now a staged fight during Catholic Church prayers!

    FREE ADVICE TO DPP;

    It is very possible to stage anything except DEATH; come what may you CAN’T stage DEATH; it is IMPOSSIBLE!

    Madalitso Mbewe wa chasing people from Blantyre saying Dzipitani a chigawo cha pakati ndi kumpoto mukulepheretsa Peter kutenga udindo panthawi ya zisankho. What do you expect from their Mid night Prayers attended by the Mid Night Rafiasic Mafias Munthrika, Kaliyati, Mussa H Mchacha Goodall, Kalirani. They want to make sure that before Elections no one should be strong to oppose DPP.

    Ndi Izi pano mbuzi za MCP zomwe zinkadyera ziphuphu from ruling parties mdzina la MCP zikupita ku Khoti kuti achotse Chakwera so that they should continue doing what they were doing in the time of Muluzi and Tembo. NDA iyambeso tikhobole amenewa

  11. J. Chagoma says:

    The benefit of this act seems too little to change anything. Can the fight at one Parish affect the contents of the Pastoral Letter? Investigate further.

  24. SIR JOHN CHAULA says:

    WHY is it that mw is awash with scandals involving a xros sexion of faithfuls? we heard of one bushiri being psycologically harassed by a regime machinery then came the other respected idiot challenging the annointed man of god tb joshua who has chosen to swoop so low probably in what i blieve a true xritian can do, god wil speak for him. Then came a some prophet whose name is a taboo to mention among malawians- mboro(penis). As if that wasnt enough the authors of the famous pastoral letters that have seen malawi embracing multipartism among others are at it. If the end is so nearer then god shld forgive us

  25. Chopwicho says:

    Shaaa, this is how the Hit List is going to start? I though the hearsay was from people who had ill wishes against govt. But now with this revelations that some governing people approached some Choir members to cause a fight and thereby fueling the chaos, I stand to believe that the Hit List rumour is now a true story.

  26. Vincent K Safalao says:

    So is all about money? just like Juda betrayed son of man because of six peaces of silver, now its politicians using money and power.

  29. Sato oyamba says:

    Koma yeah. The world has it all

  30. ineyo says:

    Nyasatimes please follow this choir member closely so that what happens to him or her should be analysed with objectivity.

    Dausi should be closely linked to this barbaric act. Where ids the peace Mr president was asking for at night of prayers event? God will surely punish all the perpetrators no matter what.

    I know someone will be saying end times but personally I don’t believe in that because every generation must have its end times period.
