MP Ngumuya against Scotland Yard coming to help Malawi in fire probe: Lunguzi, Mwenifumbo back investigations

Parliamenterian for Blantyre City South Allan Ngumuya (DPP) expressed reservations with  inviting specialists officers from Scotland Yard in United Kingdon to be e been called in to try to solve the riddle of fire that has been gutting public places but had  backed the motion on investigating the death if forer Anti Corruption Bureau (ACB) director Isaa Njauju.

Makowa Mwale: Bring Scotland Yard to Malawi

The motion calling for the investigation into the gruesome murder of Njauju was moved by Nkhotakota South East  member of parliament (MP) Evason makowa Mwale.

He said Scotland Yard should also come to investigate mysterious fires at Electricity Supply Corporation of Malawi (Escom) and Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) warehouse in Lilongwe and the fire at Ministry of Agriculture offices due to failure by government to launch a credible investigations on its own.

Ngumuya – No Scotland Yard fire probe

Ngumuya: Scotland Yard should not come to probe fire icnidences

But contributing to the motion, Ngumuya said  he was against extending the investigations to mysterious fires.

“First of all, it is very important that we need to investigate all these cases and nobody can say no, to these.  But my question is; why do we mix, the death of Mr Njauju, ESCOM and other agriculture cases. These cases happened some time back and we were supposed to investigate them a long time ago,” said Ngumuya.

Ngumuya, who is also veteran gospel musician, backed the motion  to investigate Njauju murder.

“But my concern is that Mr Njauju’s death is very important, nobody can say no, for this investigation.  And nobody can say anything negative about the investigation.

“We have to separate the issues because it is like we are politicizing them.  Do we really need Scotland Yard to come and investigate ESCOM fire? Do we really need Scotland Yard to come to Malawi to investigate Agriculture offices’ fires?  I do not think so.  But if you ask me the importance of the late Honourable Njauju, I would say yes, and then if it is for the government to invite the Scotland Yard to come and investigate, then that is another case,” said Ngumuya.

He asked the House to “ stay away from politicizing these things.”

Said Ngumuya: “ Mr Speaker, Sir, when we say no to Scotland Yard to come and investigate the mysterious fire at ESCOM  and Ministry of Agriculture Headquarters offices, it will be like we are saying no to the investigation of Njauju’s death which is wrong.  These things need not to be mixed, they should be separated.”

Lunguzi – Malawi deserves better

Lunguzi: Malawians deserve better

Dedza East Juliana lunguzi of MCP supported the motion, saying: “. If we were a conscious nation, a nation that cares, to date Mr Speaker, Sir, we could have found out what happened to Mr Njauju. Mr Njauju was not an ordinary citizen.  He was working in a very sensitive institution which most of us have do not want to see it independent because it polices us. Today the family of Mr Njauju is still looking down the road to say what happened.”

Lunguzi also called for an extention of the probe to other suspected regime murders like university student activist Robert Chasowa.

She said : “ It is not only Mr Njauju. We have had deaths in this country.  For instance,  Mr Robert  Chasowa  died under mysterious circumstances.  Today his family is still looking for answers. So, Mr Speaker, Sir, this is a very good motion that as a country we need to accept.

“We cannot continue losing human lives and property just because somebody is hiding something. This is 2017 and we know how sensitive our country becomes when we go towards elections.  Because there are some people who want to hide so many things so that they can come and rule this country and continue plundering the property of this country.

“ I am sure people from Dedza East would love to hear exactly what happened to Mr Njauju? What is causing the fires? There have been so many mysterious deaths in this country. Many people have died, mysterious road accidents, we never know the causes.  I want to support this motion, Mr Speaker, Sir.  Malawi deserves better, we need to learn.”

Mwenifumbo – Attack on democracy

Mwenefumbo: Attack on democracy

Karonga Central independent MP, Frank Mwenifumbo said the  attack on Njauju was an attack on democracy and that cannot just be left uncovered.

“I am very glad to see that the Honourable House has regarded itself to agree, that it is important as a starting point to see what really happened.  Mr Speaker, Sir, there have been so many clues leading to the death of Njauju.  Just imagine, Honourable Members, one of us being killed in the line of duty? Njauju died when he was discharging his duties for mother Malawi and not for his family,” said Mwenifumbo.

Minister of Justce and Constitutional Affairs Sameuk Tembenu said government us already working on bringing Scotland Yard.

The motion was approved by the House.

Wawa, you will not win. In your first posting when you said “we don’t want to involve Scots here” , what did you mean? If you don’t know Scotland Yard can in no way be shortened as Scots because Scots refers to Scottish. If you mean Scots meant Scotland Yard, I am afraid, you better go back to school. I would be make a mistake to say that your writing style portrays you as a typical MCDE school leaver, too dull. Intelligent people keep quiet when are corrected or they simply say “thank you”.

anybody can see the link to criminal fraud ‘modus operandi’ in all these and other cases hounding Malawi. Big sharks are behind this, and the State is aiding abetting it! The small drop-feed of names hauled for legal justice is often only forthcoming once these smaller fish cross the Sharks. I fail to see any morality in the systems that are agents to the nation and its citizens. it is so broken, and akin to sons and daughters forcing the rape of their own mother for their own personal gain. I doubt there is any amount of praying that can… Read more »

Wawa, in the first place let me correct you that Scotland Yard is not from Scotland and it is not for the Scots. It is a British government establishment just like the FBI in the US tasked to carry out investigations of serious nature. The name Scotland Yard should not mislead you, It is the name of the Police service headquarters in London. The name Scotland Yard or New Scotland Yard as it known, derives from the location of the original Metropolitan Police headquarters at 4 Whitehall Place, which had a rear entrance on a street called Great Scotland Yard… Read more »

Where were MCP MPs when Evison Matafale has died. This country is having fool and stupid politicians, what they want is to enriching themselves not assisting those who vote for them in villages. Our country will remain the way it is becz of these fools. Malawians don’t be fooled with these people. The likes of Mkukuyus, they were in government what have they done for us nde aziti mfwemfwe amalawi duo.

I would like to agree with MP Allan Ngumuya that we don’t need to invite Scotland yard over this issue. It is no hidden fact that a crime was committed. And as such this crime needs to be investigated fully. But by who? It is debatable. In my opinion, it is not necessary to involve Scots here. For how long are we gonna be involving Scotland yard on every Malawi cases? You mean our local investigators are not capable of investigating such cases? Why do we Malawians lack faith in our own abilities? It is time we empower our own… Read more »
