After the Judge passes his ruling today, Raphael  Kasambara will walk out a FREE man or convict heading to jail for a long time.

Raphael Kasambara is a Malawian activist, lawyer, teacher, and politician and now accused of attempted murder and standing to be convicted or acquitted of all charges in a few hours from now.

He served as the Minister of Justice and Attorney General from April 2012 until he was accused of attempted murder of one Paul Mphwiyo. The scandal that exposed cashgate

. He also served as the former Attorney General under the administration of Bingu wa Mutharika during the early part of the administration. After which he became the legal representative of the then Malawian vice-president, Joyce Banda who later assumed the Presidency after Bingu WA Mutharika suffered a heart attack.

Kasambara had been a critic of the administration of Bingu wa Mutharika, being vocal about grounds for impeachment and commenting that “wants to be a dictator”. He was jailed in February 2012, after thugs went to his office with petrol bombs in an attempted arson plot, he called the police, together with supporters and restrained the perpetrators

Instead he was arrested for kidnapping and torture of the thugs. He was later released on bail, and then arrested again over the faulty bail procedures. Amnesty International had expressed concern over his case.

But this morning he faces a tougher challenge. Paul Mphwiyo was shot on the night of 13 September 2013 when he was entering his area 43 home in the capital, Lilongwe.

On 8 November, the same year, Malawi’s former Justice Minister, Raphael Kasambara, was arrested for allegedly masterminding the shooting of Mphwiyo.

  1. Every Malawian is aware that Kasambara is a crook. However, imprisoning him is not in the interest of many sane Malawians considering the fact that he is being prosecuted by a government which is also not having clean hands. The current government is doing all it can to shield corrupt officials, so why should we be angry with one Ralph Kasambara.

    Malawians, stupid as we are, will still be the victims of every government’s corrupt acts. we can’t voice out because we foolish and useless. when we speak against corruption always is not in good faith; we want to get attention so that they should give us millions to be quiet. in short Malawi ndi bwalo la zitsilu. enanu mukafuna kuyankhula mumabisa mayina, an indicator of total cowardice. But don’t worry, in few year to come you will jack-up as some of us are planning a fierce bombing in collaboration with renowned terrolist group. i know it’s bad but I regard it as a necessary evil because foolishness has taken centre stage on the part of our politicians.

    in a nutshell, Kasambara is a crook and we would like to see him to face the wrath of the law but our worry is that justice in Malawi is increasingly becoming selective. when you are in government you cannot be prosecuted no matter corrupt you can be.
