US should extradite Sendeza’s assailant to be tried in Malawi, says Foreign Minister Mkaka

Minister of Foreign Affairs Eisenhower Mkaka has suggested that a 37-year-old Kalekeni Lindeire, a Malawian citizen who is arrested in United States of America for allegedly shooting to death Deputy Minister of Defence Jean Sendeza’s 29-year-old daughter Noriah Sendeza, should be extradited and face justice in Malawi.

Noriah was shot in Indiana, USA by Lindeire who was a boyfriend of her sister Mundi, after she called their relationship off.

Mundi sustained injuries in the shooting incident.

The body of Noriah was repatriated back home and was buried at Matapila Village in Lilongwe on Tuesday.

Speaking at the burial, Mkaka said it is only in a degrading and inhuman Malawi prison where Lindeire will get appropriate punishment for his crime

“Some could be wondering that I, a minister, am saying this? I am mourning so don’t judge my words [namalira samtseka pakamwa].”

State vice-president Saulos Chilima also attended the funeral and consoled Sendeza, who is also Malawi Congress Party (MCP) legislator for Lilongwe South West.

Chilima said the man who shot the woman “is worse than a witch.”

Very unfortunate statement from the honourable Minister if indeed it was said. Anzanu tinauza mmbuyomo kuti akonze kumeneko, they gave a deaf ear. Lero they are going there. You think prison ndimalo ozuzira anthu? Osamalankhula choncho ayi. It has to be a correctional place.

Yes, it’s unbecoming of a cabinet minister to be crude like that. Leave that to us! The state of Indiana still has the death penalty in its books. Being a black man — an African no less — this idiot is a dead man walking! An all-white jury will convict him in no time and before long, he will be seating on the infamous chair, having eaten a sumptuous meal of his choice for the last time. If I were him, I would choose “matemba aku Domasi”, from whence he comes. Malawi has never executed anybody since the dawn of… Read more »

Shame…Me. Minister consult before making these dambwe remarks.Do you understand the criminal justice system in this particular state the crime was committed.You are supposedly a Minister of External Affairs. Talk to the legal department within your Ministry.

Why?

The crime was committed on American soil,and the culprit is in America,so what’s the logic behind bringing him here.

Don’t politicise crime.

If the crime was committed here and the culprit run away to America then Yes ask for extradition.

Someone said somewhere we have a lot of people with good heads on their shoulders,but the ministers we get? OMG
