Uladi Mussa charges to be dropped: Amnesty for supporting DPP

A case in which former minister of Home Affairs and Internal Security Uladi Mussa is answering charges of aiding at least 55 foreigners to illegally obtain citizenship while he was a Cabinet minister ­appears set to be dropped after he ­has changed his political goals as he n now has  a soft voice on the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) government and supported the government to reject electoral reforms.

Uladi: Amnesty

The Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) arrested Mussa in March this year on charges of negligence and abuse of office but Mussa said at the time that his arrest was politically-motivated.

He handed himself to the ACB after reports surfaced that the bureau wanted to arrest him in relation to the granting of citizenship and passports.

Mussa claimed the case is politically-motivated.

Now prosecution sources say there is “political interest” to have the matter “warehoused.”

Prosecutor Kamudoni Nyasulu said  there were only errors in terms of compilation of the disclosures by the State as some documents the defence team was given and those shared with the court did not have some copies.

But  Nyasulu could not comment on the reports that the case will fall.

Mussa, who is former People’s Party (PP) leader has claimed that DPP was in a working relationship with PP.

He has been mobilising PP legislators to support DPP during the vote on the Electoral Reforms Bills

PP surprised many when some of its members voted ‘no’ to the Electoral Reforms Bills, abstained or were absent during the voting, leading to speculations that the party connived with the DPP to frustrate the reforms.

Apart from voting ‘no’, and at some point abstaining to vote on the electoral reforms in Parliament, PP chief whip Ralph Jooma resigned from his position for personal reasons.

Recently, Mussa  attracted headlines for showering praise on President Peter Mutharika for successfully implementing the national ID programme—a complete change of heart from his earlier comments that branded the exercise as a ploy to rig elections.

The most sure way of protecting oneself from prosecution and wrong arm of the law if one is a freud gangster, thug, money launderer like Chapondaminga (keeping stacks and stacks of stolen money in the bedroom); then just join DPP and support president Mutharika. Forget his public rhetoric he is TIRED of corruption. If you are lucky you will be even rewarded and dine with Peter at the end of year party at the state house. The party is organised using public resources by MBC celebrating who has really achieved well in stealing among Mulhakhos gurus and sympathisers.. So don’t… Read more »

So once a suspect to a crime aligns himself or becomes friends with powers that be they become immuned from prosecution? Is this truly the kind of justice system Malawians want and cherish for their country. Is selective justice, justice at all? I wonder why azungu use a perfectly balanced scale or a blind folded woman wielding a sword to represent justice. Our justice system is suffocated to death or the sword bearer has his hand twisted to spare and shield criminals who drum up political support to gangsters masquerading as champions of progress and democracy in Malawi. When true… Read more »
