The National Assembly Speaker, Richard Msowoya has asked Minister of Information and Communications Technology Nicholas Dausi to furnish his office with details on the alleged abduction of Rumphi East Member of Parliament Kamlepo Kalua.
Kalua, who is PP third vice-president and one of the fierce critics of President Peter Mutharika’s administration, was reported missing by his family few weeks ago.
According to his family, they could not reach Kalua on his mobile phone which was unusual.
However, Kalua was found on Sunday morning at Kwacha Roundabout with both his hands and legs tied with ropes.
Speaker Msowoya said he is interested in the matter because Kalua is a legislator.
But Malawi Police have been quick to declare that the firebrand opposition politician staged his kidnap despite that they are investigating the matter.
National Police spokesperson James Kadadzera said their preliminary investigations indicate that he faked the kidnap.
But Kalua’s family spokesperson John Mapunda dismissed the police version as “cheap propaganda.”
