Black Moses against State freeing  Chasowa killer suspects: Minister Tembenu rubbishes Justice Nyirenda’s inquiry

Justice and Constitutional Affairs minister Samuel Tembenu has said the state will not prosecute Polytechnic student Robert Chasowa killer suspects but the murder victim’s friend, Moses Black described Tembenu’s statement as the government ploy to protect DPP officials and the police.

Black Moses: Police killed Chasowa, it was State sponsored murder

.Tembenu punched holes on the Robert Chasowa commission of inquiry led by the now Chief Justice Andrew Nyirenda.

“The evidence was flawed, we need to have a fresh investigation,” said Tembenu.

The detailed commission of inquiry names former southern region Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) regional governor Noel Masangwi, other DPP operatives and police officers as suspects in the murder of the political activist.

Tembenu said the state could not rely on the inquiry report and said it would be hiring foreign investigators to probe the murder.

However, Chasowa’s best friend, Moses Black described Tembenu’s statement as the government ploy to protect DPP officials and the police.

“We all know what happened. Why can’t the state bring the suspects to court? I am ready to face the judge and testify because I know how my best friend was killed,” said Black.

He said he knows how the police picked him from Blantyre to Lilongwe to give  him money to foil protests, how he was driven back and later killed.

The commission of inquiry says Chasowa was abducted from Polytechnic campus, killed along Lunzu road and brought back to campus to show as if he committed suicide by falling to his death from a pavement roof.

Stupid are Malawians if at all they voted DPP into government in 2014. Still Malawians are stupid because they knew DPP did not win the 2014 elections Ref: the crying of Mbendera who knew that he was to announce false results and Malawians showed their stupidity by not rising up that time to stop Pitala to be sworn in as President. Malawians should learn to be proactive and not reactive. Malawians like talking and talking without action. Go to the streets for days on end until this stupid government is taken out. Pitala alibe mzeru it is the chola boys… Read more »

I don’t know if Pipo from southern region think properly. You’re the same Pipo that elect those criminals and you’re crying. In 2019 you will do the same thing. I think you’re possessed with demons.

Why did the JB regime fail to close this matter? She told us on entry that “ndikulira ndi njembele inzanga”. It was all fake as it turned out to be. Wamalilila kazhighet.

Malawians should swear never to elect thieves and murderers again. In 1994, the country elected a known convict to be the President of the country despite being warned by the “Malawi Democrat”. Ten years down the line, we repeated the mistake to elect another thief who stole from COMESA .The report from the Eminent states men clearly convicted somebody who became our President. When he passed on, we proceeded to elevate somebody who stole from Women World Banking to be President of the country. Whilst not much is known about the current one, there is ample evidence that the carry… Read more »
The Partriot

When intellectuals join politics they start thinking like Politicians.
Malawians are not surprised by the verdict from the Minister of Justice….there is NO way the DPP government can allow its own members to go to jail for murder.
Malawians should pray for God to intervene….the blood of Chasowa is crying for Justice.


The DPP government has done all the evil in this country sometimes you wonder it is in government. It has killed people. It has torched markets and homes of opponents. It steals cash from government. It discriminates against people from minority tribes. Eish! Mulungu alikotu koma! DPP is a big liability to the nation.
