Judge Ntaba assures ‘justice will prevail’ in Masambuka’s case as DPP politicians implicated in albino killings

Zomba-based High Court Judge Zione Ntaba has asked McDonald Masambuka’s family to be patient because one day justice will prevail in the case where  their relation, a person with albinism, is believed to have been murdered in Machinga in April last year.

Judge Zione Ntaba: Out of Masambuka case after her uncle Hetherwick Ntaba is implicated
12 suspects in McDonald Masambuka’s case: DPP politicians implicated

Justice Ntaba made the assurance when she   recused herself from the murder case of MacDonald Masambuka, citing the inclusion, by the defence, of a relation’s name – Hetherwick Ntaba [her uncle]  – in the case as the reason.

In her statement directed to the Masambuka family, Ntaba dsaid: “ I wish you all the best as you continue to see justice for your son. I am sorry that the process of justce delivery could not be completed in my courtroom due to the circumstances that have happened herein.

“But I believe and be assured that you shall get justice in the next court where this case is going.”

Judge Ntaba has since referred the case to Blantyre High Court to identify a new judge.

She further ordered the assistant registrar at the High Court in Zomba to ensure that the file is transferred to Blantyre by May 20 2019.

Justice Ntaba later told the accused persons that they shall be informed through their lawyers when the matter shall “resume or restart depending on the next judge’s directions” at the High Court in Blantyre.

On Thursday, one of the suspects,  Alfred Yohane.  implicated some high-profile politicians  including ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP)  member and presidential aide Hetherwick Ntaba before the Judge adjourned for Friday.

The body of Masambuka, 22, was found buried on April 1 2018, after he was reported missing in March the same year.

And Buleya? DPP sympathisers are so thick. Yoh guys don’t forget kunali anthu ozunza inu mwachepa. Iwo izunzawo ali kuti pano? Look around the world there were big strong leaders who took the citizenry gor granted, dispised and victimized them. Pano ali kuti?

This explains why the Commission of Inquiry asked for more time to simply delay the matter when they learnt DPP mafia was involved. If the Commission completed its by the given deadline, it would have accused panic in the DPP. so the delay was meant to allow polling pass because the results of the report would directly have affected the outcome of the election on the part of DPP. The CI is also playing politics, otherwise one is bound that setting up of the CI was due to public pressure when the Governnment was not willing to do so..

Alfred Yahane anatumidwa to implicate Ntaba and others for opposition to gain mileage but alemba mmadzi. This will only delay the case. Alfred knows that yake ndi death sentence which will be commuted to life imprisonment and he can say anything as he has nothing to lose. Opposition dirty tricks will not yield any positive results w . See what has happened to Julius Malema in South Africa he has gotten only 10 % of the vote . He dumped ANC and formed his Freedom party. Expect same scenario with Saulosi the masterminder of these political lies

Sometimes I wonder if APM has brains at all. Here is a president who appoints a Commission of Enquiry composed of a suspect of the very crimes the Commission is trying to establish.
