Court stops burying albino kidnap suspect until postmortem

The High Court in Lilongwe on Friday issued an injunction against burial of the body of Buleya Lule, a suspect who allegedly offered to ‘buy’ a 14-year-old Dedza boy with albinism for K800 000 last week, until a pathologist  do a forensic postmortem on his remains.

Buleya Lule died in police cell

Association of Persons with Albinism in Malawi (Apam) applied for the injunction against the burial of Lule’s body, which was granted, making Malawi Police Service (MPS), through the Attorney General’s (AG) office, respondents to the matter.

The suspect died while in mysterious circumstance under the custody of police Wednesday, a day after appearing in court.

Apam and Lule’s  family  are suspecting foul play.

“We demand an urgent forensic postmortem by a pathologist before burial. This is a great setback. How can a key suspect die while in police custody, before revealing where he sold Goodson,” said Apam president Overstone Kondowe.

Centre for the Development of People (Cedep) executive director Gift Trapence has since called for an independent inquiry into the death of the suspect which he says raises speculations that something fishy is happening.

During the court hearing, Buleya repeatedly asked for a glass of water and requested to be allowed to lie on the floor because he felt dizzy.

The court learnt that Buleya and most of the accused had sustained various degrees of injuries allegedly from beatings by community members and police officers in the course of their arrest.

He was ready to spill the beans and they have silenced him. Shame on this miserable DPP government, killing its own cadets.

I dont think there is any politics involved. Why should DPP shot it self in the foot by carrying out these murders in the run up to elections. If any thing we can point at oppostion as culprits in order to turnish the image of the ruling party. In my opinon thats not the case. The problem at the moment is with our justice system. The wheels of justice are missing a cog somewhere. We have heard about people being found guilty of kiling our albino brothers and sisters. Citing incidents in Chitipa , Machinga, karonga just to mention a… Read more »

The police is responsible. Somebody knows what’s happening. By killing Buleya they have sought to cover up their tracks.

Bola musakhalae a DPP inu amene mukukondwera ndi kubisika kwa umboni. Ngakhale Buleya walandira chilango koma amayenera kuti aulure kumene anapita naye mwana. Mtengo waminga umafunika kuzula ndi mizu yomwe. Zimene zachitika apa ziri ngati kungodula mtengo mizu nkuisiya pomwepo.

Apite ku gehena ameneyu, they have done to him what he has been doing to others

Ndata Albino Auction Floor

No need to sympathize with Buleya. He did more evil than the police. Tisamvenso za Buleya Lule ayi. Akapezeka Wina ngati Buleya afenao. Albino ndi munthu. Even some of you sympathizing with Buleya could be carrying these genes leading to albinism. It’s passed from one to another and just becomes prominent. Read biology once again.

Where pppe are missing sense over the whole matter is that ,buleya was a prime carplit who could lead to the main suspect however his death has concealed all the process and no one can trace where he sold the 14 year makanjira, this is the reason why the nation is crying ,because his life was more important than anyth8ng that has happened to him .this raises speculation that the law enforcers have had a hand on his death throuthvthe peasure fromvothervbig fish who felt could be mentioned in the couse of his testimony

Through that ‘Boma 2019..’. People aren’t mad that bcoz Malawi has lost a life in Buleya. people are mad bcoz his death means the mystery still continues. If this man lived a little more, then this could have been a moment to know the mrkt, trace all involved and catch them all.

It’s not that people are feeling sympathy for Buleya. No. It is the fact that he died in police custody before revealing the brains behind these albino murders that have made people to be frustrated.

Buleya ‘s evidence could have gone a long way in solving these albino cases.
