Mutharika feels sorry for imprisonment of DPP’s Mzomera, Uladi for corruption

Immediate past president Peter Mutharika has said he is saddened with the conviction and imprisonment of two top officials of his Democratic Progressive Party (DPP), Uladi Mussa and Christopher Mzomera Ngwira.

Mutharika: Will pray for them until they come out of jail

Mutharika said this responding to a journalist question at a news conference he held at his retirement sprawling home in Mangochi  on Friday.

“It’s very sad what has happened,” said Mutharika in apparent reference to the custodial sentence  of DPP regional governor for the North, Mzomera Ngwira and vice-president for the centre , Uladi Mussa.

Mzomera was sentenced by  Mzimba Magistrate Court to prison where he would serve a four-year jail term, for corruption.

His sentence has been followed by  DPP presidential aspirant Uladi Mussa  who was convicted and jailed for five years  in the passport fraud case committed when he served as minister of Home Affairs and Internal Security in 2013.

Mutharika said he feels sad with the conviction.

“It is sad this is happening; they are both good people. I am wishing them well. We will pray for them until they come out [of prison],” Mutharika told reporters.

He added: ” I feel very sorry for them and their families.”

Meanwhile, Leader of Opposition in Parliament Kondwani Nankhumwa has warned President Lazarus Chakwera and his Tonse Alliance administration against applying selective justice in the fight against corruption where he says only members of the DPP are targeted.

Speaking in Parliament on Friday, Nankhumwa then dared Chakwera to take remedial action against the officers involved in the corruption scandal rather than just paying lip service.

MCP shall pay for all these atrocities. Why is Joice Banda of jetgate, army armsgate, and cashgate as implicated by Lutepo left free? Why is Kaliati of Vwaza marshgate/Lengwegate not being investigated. Why is Masangwi of Chasowa murder not being arrested? Why is Newton Kambala still free todate? Why is Kasambara of cashgate not taken back to prison? Why is Humphreys Mvula who stole all monies from Stagecoach bus company not yet arrested? Don’t you see that DPP is indeed being targeted in these prosecutions? Fotseki MCP together with your biased judiciary.

Now I’m convinced that this guy has a short memory, he has dementia, it was DPP that arrested these guys. Now you feel sorry cause the wheels of justice are slow?

That’s what I hate with our journalists. At times they behave as kids in a basket of Pizzas: They simply do not know what to do. These guys were taken to court by Mutharika’s administration and now that he is out of it they cry foul for their conviction? Why did they take them to court in the first place? As for the sell-out George Malemia I have nothing to say to him.

Apm being the Prince of Thieves cannot see anything with this. In fact he is the architect of massive looting, thievery. He belongs to jail

APM is in a world of his own – I feel sorry for him. So detached from reality he is.

His ideal Malawi is gone and it’ll never be in his hands again 😂🇲🇼

Both APM and Kondwani are idiots. Who arrested Uladi Mussa? Who arrested Mzomera? You want to start blaming MCP? The two thieves were taken to court and they are not political prisoners but political thieves. There’s no where in the world where you sympathize with people stealing from the poor man. They abused their authority. Let them rot in prison.

It was DPP that arrested Uladi over that scandal when he was still in PP. Why should both APM and Nankhumwa pretend as if it is LMC?🤔

Mr Former President, I also feel sorry for you. In the first place, why did you arrest these lieutenant’s of DPP? You were employing a very robotic way of cheating Malawians that once an arrest was made, it would mean justice delivered. You were doing this on expectation that you would win and once this happened, the matters would as per Malawian style be forgotten and die naturally, forgetting that government machinery which upto now you do not know, does not shade off information. The information was the let loose. To say that you are sorry is a fallacy equivalent… Read more »
