Lule  was suspect in abduction of 14-year-old with albinism. He died in police custody and MHRCinvestigation report  confirms.

An autopsy report released last month by Pathologist Dr. Charles Dzamalala revealed that Lule’s death was due to electrocution and blunt force trauma to the head.

In releasing the report, MHRC)’s Rosemary Kanyuka told the family of Lule that their relation was not the one who had a hand  in the abduction of the 14-year-old boy with albinism.

The report also states that police violated Lule’s right to life when they tortured him to death from the time Lule left the court on 20th February and the eport has named eight police officers who handled Lule who include Assistant Commissioner of Police Evalista Chisale who was among those who interrogated the victim at Police Headquarters on 19th February 2019.

MHRC in its report has recommended that the Inspector General of Police should institute criminal investigations into all Police officers who handled Lule between the 19th and 20 February, including  Chisale, who is wife to presidential security aide Norman Paulos Chisale.

The other Officers are said to be Inspector Ronad Kapesa who is station criminal investigations officer for Dedza police and Inspectro Mervin Gama of C Division.

The report also recommends that the Director of Public Prosecutions should start criminal proceedings against all the police officers mentioned in the report who had direct contact with Lule.

MHRC commissioner Martha Chizuma promised to follow up with the Inspector General when action will be taken.

The police arrested six persons suspected to have abducted Goodson Makanjira, 14, a boy with albinism, from his home village in Traditional Authority Chilikumwendo in Dedza on February 13.

The six, who were arrested are Kumbirani Patson(51), Sainani Kalekeni (44), Katiyo Mizeck (42), Wisikesi Gana (68), Lukasi Kagomo (36), and Lule (44).

Who mentioned buleya to be the masterminder? Ask that person to shed more light. Bwanji sanatchule ine.
Buleya wakhala mgelo lero kuti anafa ali ku police. Kodi mwana wosowayo zili pati pano? Makolo ake alandilapo compensation ngati mmene apangile abale ake a lule? Popeza onsewa ndi anthu

This Chisale guy is becoming too powerful. Isn’t he the same chap believed to have had a hand in the choice of puppet Chimulirenji as APM’s running mate? Now he’s suspected to be involved in albino murders. Isn’t he just a FRONT for some big fish? Mukusewera ndi Chauta? Zonse ziululika.

Just read Lwara’s albino pupil killing in Luchenza in the runner up to 1994 elections.

Our police officers are brutal. I know a lady police officer at Zomba police station, light in complexion and has a beard. Wandevu. he is ruthless. One day she was beating a suspect just a primary school boy wh was being accused of stealing a wristwatch. This lady hit the boy with rula wa chitsulo. and when the boy fell down she was angry saying ukufuna kundisizumila??? she hit her again in the full view of other male police officers and the rest of us who were there to report different crimes.
