DPP cadets assault case fails to start as Malawi police ‘loses’ the files

A case involving 12 ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) youth cadets in which they are accused of beating up vendors at Tsoka market in Lilongwe failed to start on Thursday at the magistrates court.

DPP cadets have a history of abductions and killings. Party cadets brandishing pangas a day before the July 20 2011 demonstrations

Police arrested the 12 cadets last week after beating and injuring some vendors at the market who had gone to the leadership of the market over poor trading environment.

However, when they appeared before the court to answer assault charges, Lilongwe police prosecutors said they did not have the case files.

It transpired that senior police prosecutors from the central region prosecution offices had taken the files on orders from the police headquarters.

Central region police spokesperson Noriah Chihana Chimala refused to comment on the matter.

But vendors who thronged the court made murmurs of disapproval and openly accused the DPP led government of trying to shield the notorious and merciless cadets.

The police wants the case to fall.

This comes at a time when the police are failing to bring to book notorious youth cadets who beat up a Times journalist and harrassed some DPP legislators deemed to be crusaders of Saulos Chilima Movement.

The DPP cadets are also using petrol bombs to intimidate the movement members.

If government is failing to bring justice to the people let people bring justice to the government its time for mob justice to be implemented. If Dpp cadets are bringing terror to the citizens let mob justice take place if albino people cannot be protected let mob justice be upon the culprits.

God is watching. The cries of Malawians shall one day be heard. Countless bad things have happened at the hands of the so called cadets but no single reprimand from the whole leadership of the DPP. All we have heard is denials and accusations that those were youths from other political parties. Is this the Malawi that some Malawians died for before and after Independence? Remenber, Malawi belongs to all of us Malawians. 2019 is the year God is going to end the atrocities Malawians have received at the hands of the DPP.

President Mutharika may have all the right intentions and good will to develop this country. But running a country where the rule of law is not respected is a recipe for disaster. The message he and his cronies are sending out there is that of anarchy.
And in such a nation it’s actually delusional to believe that it can genuine development.

Justice is a one letter word which does not exist in Malawi.
Chaska, Njauju, 2011 victims from Mzuzu etc.
Now we have the Chaponda case being dismissed and now DPP cadets terrorizing citizens.
Shame on you leader of DPP.
Shame on you president of Malawi.

But alas come May 2019 you will still vote for him.
Who is to blame. Simple.
Take a look in the mirror. Blame the reflection you see in that mirror.

When you say a file has gone missing, tell us please, what do you mean?

It would sound better if u could say a file has been taken and is being kept by someone somewhere. The one who is keeping the file, is inviting God’s wrath. I can challenge you on this one. You are clever today on this earth, but not before the creator. An albino was killed, a typical image of God, justice wanted to prevail, you hid the case file. What a blasphamy!!! Surely you wont escape God’s wrath. For now, please enjoy!!!!
