Democratic Progressive Party (DPP)  deputy national youth director Dyton Mussa  has been implicated as ‘commandeering’ the political violence that occurred in Mzuzu and that he is heading a hit squad.

Suspects who were arrested  in  connection to the violence that erupted last week at a solidarity rally Malawi Congress Party (MCP) president Lazarus Chakwera held in Mzuzu city implicated Mussa to have been the mastermind.

Recently, Nyasa Times revealed that ruling  DPP recruited youths who will eliminate critics of President Peter Mutharika and his Vice Saulos Chilima, and the party

An impeccable source confided to Nyasa Times that the party appointed a notorious thug Dyton Mussa to be  commandeering a reign of terror.

“They intend to use pepper sprays, pangas and drips-yes the same drips, they will be literally poisoning people. Their team would do exactly what they did to Robert Chasowa and even Issa Njaunju of ACB,” explained the source.

Northern Region police spokesman Maurice Chapola could not deny that the suspects had mentioned Mussa but demanded to know the person who revealed.

However, government officials are said to have ordered Police to release the suspects and told them to “shut up” to get state protection.

Police spokesman Nicholas Gondwa said DPP did not have a hand in the violence in Mzuzu but  the Peoples Party which was involved in the fracas.

The  statement by  Gondwa come amid  calls for the police to arrest former PP member Christopher  Mzomera Ngwira whom  people accuse of being sponsored by the DPP to disrupt the rally.

“The DPP was not involved in this. According to the arrests we have made, it is the PP divisions that is the cause of that,” said Gondwa.

Five suspected arrested involved with the violence are: Thembisire Nkosi, 32 from Nkosi village, Traditional Authority Nthwalo in Mzimba; George Mwamtobe, 38, from Mwangukulu Village, Traditional Authority (T/A) Kilipula in Karonga; Lumbani Munthali, 29, from Matupi Village, T/A Chikulamayembe, Rumphi; Clive Nthakomwa, 52, of Malema Village, T/A Kyungu in Karonga; and, Frank Simwaka Kashololo, 30, from Kashololo Village, T/A Mwenewenya in Chitipa.

Gondwa said the arrested suspects were released on Sunday March 27 and denied this was due to political pressure taking into account it was a holiday Easter Sunday.

“We gave them the police bail at the expiry of the 48 hour rule. We did not want to keep them in custody for long because the next day was holiday,” he said.

Gondwa said the suspects, one of them a former PP official (Nthakomwa), are expected to appear in court on April 15.

Minister of Information Jappie Mhango is suing PP vice president Kamlepo Kalua for K100 million for suggesting Mhango was behind the Mzuzu rally fracas.

The Catholic Commission for Justice and Peace (CCJP), a social development arm of the influential Catholic church has expressed concern that Police can be politically “compromised”.

CCJP acting national secretary Martin Chiphwanya said Malawians deserve “an honest and truthful police service” since it is run on tax-payers money.

Police have been a letdown to the tax-payers for their inaction during the day of the violence and  behaved unprofessionally throughout the development on the matter.

Dyton Mussa however said the task for DPP youth  is to promote three pillars touted by President Mutharika which are “patriotism, hard work and integrity.”

And he said the DPP youth zealots, called Cadets,   want to “bring discipline” to Malawi.

Mussa said it is normal in Malawi to have party youth defending their leader, citing the Malawi Congress Party (MCP) of late dictator Hastings Kamuzu Banda (1964-1994) and the United Democratic Front (UDF) of former President Bakili Muluzi (1994-2004) which protected their presidents.

If you commit murder, are you released if the next day is a holiday? Plan your murders carefully and you will be free!

This savage so called Dyson mussa to me is just a small fish being used! The fact that he has been implicated and he is perfectly indicated that they did that by saying he and Co. want to bring sanity and discipline. Now let me remind Dyson that his days are numbered. who is gonna kill him? His own masters for fear of being cornered. Mzuzu thugs were forced to implicate him. As for me I would love to know the exact big fish who is behind all the no sense! For Gondwa, the police spoke person remember that ntchito… Read more »
