DPP’s Jomo ‘Ntopwa 1’ charged with malicious damage and theft

Malawi Police in Limbe have explained that 39-year-old Isaac Jomo Osman, also known as Mtopwa 1, was taken into custody Monday over malicious damage and theft allegations.

Jomo Osman is also on record to have attacked MCP supporter

Inspector Patrick Mussa, Limbe Police Public Relations Officer, said the DPP Bangwe Nthandizi ward councilor was arrested yesterday on June 29, 2020 in Limbe Township.

“It is suspected that on 25 May, 2019, Member of Parliament for Blantyre Bangwe Constituency, Orphan Shawa was at his residence in Mpingwe celebrating his victory after winning as an independent Member of Parliament after 2019 tripartite elections.

“In the course of celebrations, Osman together with other accomplices whilst armed with panga knives, invaded the house and violently damaged three car windscreens, and stole three Samsung and two Itel cellphones valued at K1 035 000,” he said.

Jomo has since been charged with malicious damage and theft which contravene Section 344(1) and 278 of the penal code respectively.

He is expected to appear before court today on June 30 to answer the charges leveled against him.

Isaac Jomo Osman hails from Mtalimanja village Traditional Authority Mponda in Mangochi district.

People should differentiate between political persecution or oppression and criminality. If people are motivated by politics to commit crimes, when the time comes to answer their doings, political persecution is a phrase that should not come near their lips. We are all equal before the law only that we choose to apply it differently. People like Muthalika, his wife and all their cronies have been illegally enriching themselves but when the time comes to account for their deeds, they will cry the loudest that it is political persecution. This Jomo guy committed these crimes because he knew he had DPP… Read more »

Release Jomo!!! Arrest Nsundwe murderers and HRDC leadership. A whole policeman lost a life there. Yet the Police is turning a blind eye. In case u have forgotten, HRDC destroyed million kwacha worthy of businesses. And as of today, they r still roaming the streets freely as if nothing terrible happened. What kind of justice is that? Aint we supposed to be all equal in the eyes of the Law? We loudly Say No to Victimization of DPP cadres.

Stop politically motivated victimizations and arrests . Being a DPP supporter is not a crime. Plz be reminded that Mtopwa 1 is innocent until proven guilty by the courts.

These guys were untouchable during DPP. The vandalism happened last year which is pretty much within the statue of limitations. I would call it politically motivated if it happened more than five years ago.
