Speaker asks Dausi to give report on Kamlepo abduction

The National Assembly Speaker, Richard Msowoya has asked Minister of Information and Communications Technology Nicholas Dausi  to furnish his office with details on the alleged abduction of Rumphi East Member of Parliament Kamlepo Kalua.

Speaker Msowoya (L) speaks to government spokesman Dausi ad Leader of the House Kondwani Nakhumwa looks on

Kalua, who is PP third vice-president and one of the fierce critics of President Peter Mutharika’s administration, was reported missing by his family few weeks ago.

According to his family, they could not reach Kalua on his mobile phone which was unusual.

However, Kalua was found on Sunday morning at Kwacha Roundabout with both his hands and legs tied with ropes.

Speaker Msowoya said he is interested in the matter because Kalua is a legislator.

But Malawi Police have been quick to declare that the firebrand opposition politician staged his kidnap despite that  they are investigating the matter.

National Police spokesperson James Kadadzera  said their  preliminary investigations indicate that he faked the kidnap.

But Kalua’s family spokesperson John Mapunda dismissed the police version as “cheap propaganda.”

Don’t pretend here; Kamlepo staged the abduction. When the police and MRA officials invaded his house, he told the nation that 120 armed police officers stormed his house. Like seriously????? The police can not deploy this high number of police officers to Kamlepo’s house. Kamlepo has been exaggerateing the whole incident. He was never abducted, period.


Our Police is a total shame to the whole world, you don’t give a conclusive statement before investigation is done, we’re lucky hon. Kalua is alive, I’m hopeful he’ll tell the nation what happened when he gets well. Amafuna achite ngati momwe anachita late Njauju or late Mbendera (RIP) DPP nkhaza two much.

What the police are saying, shows that we dont have forensic experts in the country. We nned to think POLICE, dont ust wake up in the morning and comment on sensitive issues. Abduction does NOT mean torture, if he was tortured. It would be (abduction + Torture), so you cannt find marks of torture if one was just abducted, secondly if he was phycological tortured or his pvt just pressed. Clean shaving and clean cloths, hahahahaha, you may have removed them and give him later. so that wht you are saying holds, you see you are givig out wht you… Read more »

Police have compromised their partiality in investigating abduction of Hon. Kalua by announcing that he faked his abduction as he was cleanly shaved and dressed and had no signs of being tortured yet he had delusions. In fact it is hard to believe that police can utter such statements as these tactics to cover up hearing this one would think
