Soldier spills beans in Ntcheu albino killing: Analysts argue its staged


By Professor Rasha Maga-Phiri

The Malawi Police Service have revealed that a Malawi Army soldier has assisted in the arrest of Kenneth Moses Nkhoma, 27, from Zimtambira village and Helbert Maloni, 39 of Chalera villages in traditional authority (TA) Chakhumbira in Ntcheu, after the two approached him to buy human bones.

But analysts have said that it is a gimmick by someone to divert the attention of Malawians who now have started pointing fingers at the top leadership as being in the know how of the massacre of their fellow Malawians.

Police facts
According to Superintendent Anold Sikumbiri, who is the Head of the Criminal Investigations department (CID) at Salima Police Station, the arrest was made on June 1, 2016 at Chipoka Roadblock at about 16:00 hours.

“Briefly, the first suspect was employed by Sgt. Steven Mizere of Parachute Battalion, Salima, as a shopkeeper at his shop at Kamuzu Road Trading Centre for a year and half. The suspect left on his own and went to his home in Ntcheu last year.

“On 31st May, 2016, the suspect came to the former boss and asked him if he could buy the bones. The Soldier, who is married to a Police lady, S/Insp. Grace Mizere, informed the wife who in turn informed Salima Police Management,” reads a communication we have seen from Sikumbiri to the Commissioner of Police for the Central region.

However, a social commentator in Lilongwe argued that it is obscene to suggest that one can kill a person and start looking for market as if it is employment.

“It does not even start to add up to anything. The people who kill albinos already have a market available. They can not kill someone and start looking for a market for the bones. That is impossible and it does not add up.

“Akufuna kutipimpha mmaso. Do not take them seriously but one day the truth shall come out and the nation shall speak out as well,” said the concerned Malawian who for obvious reasons we will hide his identity.

Police news

In a communication we have seen, the police claim that they through their intelligence, asked the soldier was told to accept the deal and an arrangements was made to arrest the suspect.

“The soldier was provided with a civilian vehicle and went to meet the suspect with his friend while a Police team led by Salima SCIO positioned themselves at Chipoka roadblock, and at about 4 pm, the suspects with the soldiers were picked to Salima Police Station,” reads the communication in art.

The police are saying that the suspects revealed that they are the ones who killed an Albino in Ntcheu few days ago and they have mentioned other people who were involved in the incident.

“Arrangements to arrest them are made. They will later be sent to Ntcheu to answer the charge of Murder,” the statement further reads.

But the police are mum on the people the two have revealed.

And the Police are yet to comment to the media.

Interrogations black out
Interestingly, over the weekend police news also reported that they arrested Jussab Saiton, 36 from Zintambira village, Dou Mkwaila, 49 from Phumula village in TA Kandindamoto in Dedza and Fransiso Kamtsitsi, 40 also from Phumula, in connection to the same case.

The police said they were yet to interrogate the suspects yet the issue of albino killings in Malawi has attracted international commentators and President Mutharika has said it to the world tat he is ashamed of this.

However information going around in the social media suggests that some top gurus are connected to the case.
