Aford MP Mwenifumbo survives ‘assassination plot’, informs Malawi Parliament: Sawa gangsters 

Member of Parliament (MP) for Karonga central constituency, Frank Tumpale Mwenifumbo (Alliance for Democracy –Aford) narrated in parliament how on Tuesday he survived a gun shot from unknown criminal who invaded his private house in Area 47, Lilongwe.

Mwenifumbo: Speaks in parliament on the threat to his life

“Mr second deputy speaker sir, I want to tell this honourable house a horrible incidence that happened to me on my house. My life is in danger especially for fighting for the country’s welfare,” said Mwenifumbo.

Mwenifumbo told the House that one of the criminals came to his house in disguise of seeking help that his child was critically ill and asked for transport to take the child to hospital.

He said the said criminal who identified himself as Lex Phiri claimed to be a distance neighbour working under Total Land Care.

“I told him to jump into my car to take the sick child at his home to the hospital. However, after noticing some suspicious signs, I then called the boss of the Total Land Care Mr Zwide Jere who told me that they don’t have someone with such name and that everyone at his office have personal vehicle,” he disclosed.

According to Mwenifumbo, he shot his gun in the air to chase the said criminal.

“The criminal run out of my house to a distance and started shooting at my get, and we exchanged the fire. After I overpowered him, I saw a brand new Toyota Fortuner which was brown in colour without a number plate coming to pick him away,” he said.

He told the House that he suspect that the move was a plot by the Northern Region Water Board (NRWB) particularly because of being vocal on its US14.7 million dollars contract-gate.

Nyasa Times understand that Mwenifumbo is among the legislatures sitting on a special joint committee of parliament that is investigating a purport fraud of contract that was controversially given to SAWA group by NRWB.

The amount rose from the initial award amount of US10.1 million dollars to 14.7million and the NRWB said it was arithmetical error, a development Mwenifumbo described as pure theft.

“Mr Speaker Sir, I have been receiving phone calls threatening me not to ask too many questions to NRWB about this contract because SAWA group works with Beautify Malawi trust,” he explained.

The whole Parliament was frozen with the issue but no one responded to it including the Speaker, because of time.

Mwenifumbo said he reported the matter to the police who were on patrol and they advised him to stop trusting strangers at night.

Meanwhile, in his contribution to the 2017/18 National Budget, Mwenifumbo urged government to reconsider its stance on liberalised produce market if the country is to increase foreign exchange reserves.

Mwenifumbo also said when the Agriculture Development and Marketing Corporation (Admarc) had the powers to buy and sell, Malawi earned more and the foreign reserves were better than the case is now.

Mwenifumbo is a world class lier and an attention seeker. What he told Parliament is complete rubbish. In Area 47, there is a robust community policing (neighbourhood security watch) group led by a retired Army Brigaider and former ADC for Kamuzu. There is a community policin Whatsapp Group for Area 47 Sector 5. On 13 June 2017, Mwenifumbo’s second wife Beatrice Mwangonde wrote that: “Somebody came to the Mwenifumbo’s house claiming he lives near the Rainbow TV station. He was asking for transport for his child to be taken to the hospital. Mr. Mwenifumbo asked him several times to walk… Read more »
You can not compare Mwenifumbu to Kamlepo.Mwenifumbo enjoys tremendous support from the Northerners and Malawians alike.He also has tremendous experience as an eloquent MP who represents his constituents and Malawians at large vigorously in the Parliament and has outstanding educational capabilities that Kamlepo has not,he just survives on lies and pretences,he has no certicates that he can prove himself.In other progressive African countries like Botswana,Ghana,Tanzania to name a few,this crook could not have the seat in the Parliament period or the first Parliament of 1964.He has completely lost credibility in his constituence for not telling the truth over his forged… Read more »

Honestly speaking KAMLEPO is a legend whether on likes it or not…………Mwenifumbo has always been in govt and mostly in Parliament but look at Kamlep, just two to three years in the house everyone from Nsanje to Chitipa know of him. Plus Kamlepo is a fighter, pure politician….all are sons of the north bu Kamlepo is exceptinal and thats a FACT.

Mcp die hard

You shame your fellow northerners. Is afford a threat to any party in Malawi you idiot.
Now Tumbuka s are full of drama you can’t trust them. Look at Kamlepo with his crooked way.
Mwenefumbo why go too low like this. I have lost my trust on you. You are uncircumcised idiot.
Even if you die today who cares.Kagwere uko galu use

The fact is NRWB bosses (both from Karonga) have been stealing money for a very long time. These guys have lots of property, which should be investigated thoroughly. Mwenefumbo has a point so dont dismiss what he said. If the government doesn’t take action on NRWB rotten bosses, then Malawi is indeed the junkest state in the world – condoning corruption. The link to beautify Malawi is worrying. The procurement manager for NRWB has lots of property, including several wives. There is no way he can afford all these from his salary. Malawians wake up and save the country from… Read more »
