Police accused of killing albino murder suspect in cell: Luke family says ‘its ploy to protect biggie’

Sister to a suspect believed to be the master minder in the abduction of a 14-year-old boy with albinism in Dedza has said the police have killed his brother in cell.

Death in custody: Luke Buleya

Anne Luke, sister to Buleya Luke whom the police said has died of “natural causes” whilst in police custody has  doubted the police account.

“My brother never complained of any ailments. Even yesterday, when he appeared in court, he looked healthy. The police have killed him,” said Anne in tears.

She said the police never allowed the relatives to see him at Area 3 police station which she said might have been a sign that he was being tortured.

Cousin to the deceased suspect, Samson Black said the police refused his request to accompany his uncle to Kamuzu Central Hospital.

“They flatly told me I could not join them. He was half naked and it was as if his skin was peeled off by hot water,” said Black.

Luke was said to be the key suspect who recruited those who abducted Goodson Makanjira at a fee of K800 000 which he never honored.

He is said to have known the markets for the body parts of people with albinism.

Apparently,  he was willing to reveal the “biggie” behind the albino killings.

The family suspect Luke has been killed to protect the “biggie” and the powerful syndicate behind the albino ritual murders  from being exposed.

Most of the suspects in albino killings either die under police custody or are reported to commit suicide in suspicious circumstance

Association of People with Albinism in Malawi (Apam) president Overstone Kondowe said he was suspicious with the police version whilst Lilongwe police spokesperson Kingsley Dandaula said people should wait for an autopsy report.

On Monday, European Union Ambassador Sandra Paesen called for serious criminal investigations and coordination among countries to fight abductions and killings of people with albinism.

According to Apam, since November 2014, the number of reported crimes against people with albinism in Malawi has risen to 152 cases, including 25 murders and more than 10 people missing.

Not sympathizing with Buleya who was also a DPP cadet, karma has taken its course. However, this guy held the key to unlocking the mysteries of albino killings. It is clear the police in conjunction with some DPP officials killed him. DPP is full of satanic people. You have tarnished the reputation of this country. Malawi is no longer the Warm Heart of Africa. Instead, it has become the satanic country of Africa. The government has failed, we as citizens have failed. This country will never be the same! US will not be a safe heaven for our brothers and… Read more »

The police force is part and parcel of the syndicate. The picture shows evidence of unspeakable torture. He was silenced😢😢😢

There are far better methods of extracting a confession than this. I suspect that whoever was interrogating the deceased must have had a personal interest in this criminal act, otherwise the violence meted on the deceased is completely unjustified. It defeats the very purpose of the police including the justice system. All this is nonsense happening in Malawi is possible because the good people who have the means to correct this nonsense are silent,

Please don’t use my tax on autopsy ya killer Buleya. Information ayipeza kale apolisi. Kunatsala nkuchotsa mfitiyi. Death sentence is just rhetoric. Wena akutuluka. Tawonani Misonzi Chanthunya. Kuchotsa zonyasa sitivundikira. Sadzapha Wina Buleya and wena awopa. Such punishment is meant to stop the evil 😈 act altogether.

In Kenya, just last week February 14, 2019, a senior commanding police officer for Ruaraka Police Station was sentenced to death for the murder of a suspect in his custody in 2013. He was found guilty in December 2018 after a full trial by Nairobi High Court. The suspect was arrested on allegation that he was involved a domestic brawl at the suspect’s home. Whilst in police custody, the senior commanding officer, a Mr. Mutua, used a metal bar to hit the suspect and frequently immersed suspect’s head in a drum of water. The suspect died in hospital.

They have no right, even if they are DPP symphathisers.
