Justice Minister knows what killed Mbendera

…Fingers pointing to DPP

Minister of Justice and Constitutional Affairs Samuel Tembenu has come out in the open saying he knows what killed Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) chairperson Justice Maxon Mbendera.

Maxon Mbendera

Maxon Mbendera died last week

It has widely been speculated that the MEC chair who was accused of siding with the DPP during the 2014 presidential elections had been poisoned after threatening to make public DPP’s interference in the electoral body.

Prior to his death, DPP cadets posted defamatory remarks on Facebook aimed at Mbendera. As the relationship with DPP reached irredeemable state, a well-known cadet accused Mbendera of engaging in extramarital affairs while in Lilongwe with the intention of damaging the latter’s reputation. The post which has now been deleted was posted a day before the tragic death.

A report compiled by one of the online publishers, Nyasa Times, claim that Mbendera was poisoned following a heated tirade with Minister of Agriculture, George Chaponda, who the ruling party is positioning to succeed President Peter Mutharika in 2019 elections. The MEC chair had reportedly threatened to make public information that would damage DPP’s prospects of retaining power.

“[Mbendera] challenged to spill the beans about abuses DPP was making through the electoral body,” claims Nyasa Times.

But Minister of Justice Mr. Tembenu said he was aware of the accusations levelled against DPP that the party has had a hand in Mbendera’s untimely death.

While brushing off the accusations, Tembenu surprised the gathering by disclosing that Mbendera had a sugar problem. He however said the party did not tamper with him, branding the accusations as “absurd”.

Mbendera will be remembered for publicly weeping on May 30, 2014 before declaring Peter Mutharika as winner of the presidential race in the 2014 elections. Born on November 4, 1958, he hailed from Ntcheu district.

  1. The reason why media can never and will never win confidence in people is what they put on paper- it’s hard to find the truth in their stories if anything all they want is to draw attention and not the truth of the matter

  23. Though there is a heavy criticism by the death of jusr Mbendera , I think late had something he owed to this country eg he cried before he announced the results of the election and ses how he died if someone carefully observe this two things will come with a clear picture that the late was innocent but sometimes these earthly position they are so challenging , this man was really a justice since justice didn’t do him fever . rest in peace Maxon Mbendera once again

  24. I dont c news here. If he told u then why not tel the world. Than short stories with lot of holes. If it was other party this 24 was going to write quick quick. We need news that wil unlock lot of questions.

The death of Justice Mbendele is not connected 2 any political matter nd u shouldn’t blame Dpp coz Bingu, one who formed de party went thr dat way.Ma fell Malawians, who knows owns way of death?God made so many ways of taking us from earth nd best ting is 2get prepared.We shudn’t point fingers at each other.MAY DE SOUL OF LATE MBENDERA REST IN INTERNAL PEACE.AMEN.

  28. Nthunzi sifuka popanda moto inuyo mukunena zambiri koma chilungamo chadziwika poison wapezeka bwanji muthupi lamunthu ndimayesa anayesa nde mukuletsa chani he was poisoned coz he himself he can’t took poison and left blantyre but if he was my dad maliro amenewo mukanadya ndithu zina pena kumaona its better just to fire him not to kill like that coz may be he was abread winner to the family so why God is watching u the one who is doing this u can hide but on the presence of the Lord u can’t hide u are going to answer if its death from God i thank God and let his will be done if the death is a plot let also the will of the lord be done differently and those who done this may their days be numbered .

  29. Lucy Shakalitu my name is Lucy Shakalitu, and this is a testimony of how i got cure from HIV/AIDS, i have being suffering from hiv/aids for the past 8 years without the expectation of being cure, i was on ARV, despite the ARV i was not comfortable and there was nothing i could do because i knew and i was told by my doctor that there is no cure for HIV/AIDS, my dream of getting cured came to past the day i came across a testimony like this on a facebook page of how someone was cured through the help of dr olumo herbal medicine, i was advice its not real that there is no cure but something keep telling me to contact him, of which i later did and the cure was sent to me with an instruction on how to use it which i did accordingly and went for a test, to my greatest suprice the result was negative i could not hold back the tears of joy running down my chick my doctor was shocked, i thank God that am finanly cured from hiv/aids, DR OLUMO is an herbal specialist that can cure hiv/aids, you can contact him through his email which is doctorolumo@gmail.com or whatsapp his mobile number is +2348138956767, am sharing to save lives, PLEASE SHARE TO SAVE SOME LIVES.

  47. We all know that you knew his medical condition and capitalized on it. Calcium gluconate is lethal for that condition and it is alleged to have been detected in his blood sample; the autopsy report revealed. Tembenu should have just kept quite.

  48. politricks is a dirty game if u want to control the people then control both side ruling and opposition sides, dont just get tricked easily u hv to balance both side of da story.

  49. He z nt first or last to die in dat way,where z honourable Munyenyembe n his brother Bingu? Few months back we lost prominent mp from mchinji who collapsed in de church carrying mama chinga n what lesson can u get 4m dis incedents? “only death has de justice on the earth coz it z unselectable”(black/white/rich/poor/udult/baby) in different ways, accept we will all die one day!.

  52. What character is government instilling in the youths of today? If leaders can publicly stand in the podiums castigating each other like kids, or football team supporters? Its really pathetic. What Tembenu is saying, is it contained in the doctor’s postmoterm that Mbendera has died of sugar? If not, has the family told him that their relation was suffering from diabetes? If not, then Tembenu is yet to reveal what what really killed Mbendera.

  53. Anthu otchuka asamafe?? Naneso ndikazafa muzafufuze nkuwauza anthu chomwe chandipha mwanva??!! Masiku anatha bas!! no one to blem, RIP…..

    • Otchuka ndi olemera alipo ochepa kuyerekeza ndi amphawife. That’s why akafa mmodzi mbiri yake imafika patali and pamakhala kafukufuku kuona kuti wafa bwanji because there’s cold war up there that you take no note of.
      Mphawi ngati ine kuti ndife anthu azizakamba chani chaine? And how many headlines can The Nation Newspaper, The Daily Times, Malawi News and what have you be making per day if they were to include all deaths of the poor?
      Ndife osauka and pali olemera, #vomerezani. We can’t receive equal treatment though that’s what we fight for day in and day out.

    • So if there is a sudden death of some1 who is popular n famous, people shud just stay quiet et? If it was a natural death, people wouldnt have been talking about it like the way it is now. By the way we are living in last days where love for a fellow human being has gone cold. Even your loved ones can plot to take away your life for money and fame….
      People have to talk kumene because its a sudden death, and for the fact that he was being pressurised.
