Ralph has always been a mafia

66

A social commentator has described the convicted former justice minister Ralph Kasambara as a mafia who disguised his personal battles as national battles.

In a Facebook Post, Dave Namusanya using an account name of Mankhokwe Namusanya, referred to history in which Kasambara was arrested for assault.

We publish his opinion verbatim:

_In 2012, when Ralph was arrested for assault, we went to town claiming it was political victimisation._

Men assaulted by Ralph Kasambara

_It really was a grey area. Mutharika was at a height of what we fashionably call a dictatorship. Ralph was on the other hand a part of what we also fashionably call a civil society. A man ready to fight the ‘tin-pot dictator’, as he had called Bingu then, without minding the consequences._

_I remember when he was released from Chichiri Prison where he had been remanded, a convoy nearly brought Blantyre to a standstill as cars honked to his freedom. His freedom was equated to a symbolism of a fall of dictatorship._

_All the claims by Bingu that Ralph ‘is a mafia’ were rubbished and ignored. He was a Saint and, trust me, if Bingu had lived longer there would have had been a pub somewhere labelled Saint Ralph. And, we would have had been congregating there to celebrate the bravery of Saint Ralph._

Ralph Kasambara :The mafia in suit

_Fast forward to a few years ahead: the ‘Saint-Mafia’ gets convicted for conspiracy to murder, his accomplice in his earlier assault charge we all dismissed (and for which he gave himself a hefty compensation) is on the run having had gunned down an ‘unruly’ lorry driver in Manja township in broad daylight._

_Which should really implore us to think: are the people who always fight politicians good people or usually it is because they also want to cover their dealings?_

_Can it be that, then and now, we were (are) busy championing personal fights that come in the disguise of national causes?_

_What when a Politician gets arrested, have we seen how we rise up in arms to defend that politician and claim all that arrest is ‘political persecution’?_

_Maybe it is time we started thinking hard on some of these things, just maybe.

    • He is not selfish, but the government is selfish, if he is guilt why cant they just arrest him, same story for a long time, Kasambara is bright the government is just waisting their time

    • Calm down guys. What are u gaining frm insulting each other. I thought he was convicted to conspirancy to murder, not cashgate. They are still minister involved in cashgate still running around. Why not open a case as citizens?

  6. Kodi alipo yemwe sanalakwepo apa? God loves ALL people including the Kasambara guy and who knows the guy might have sorted out his case with God and he has been forgiven.So what other judgement does he need? Why celebrating your neighbour’s calamity?

  7. Nkhani ndiyakumangidwa kwa Kasambara, iyi sikukhuzana ndizachitsankho palibe president yemwe anaimbidwapo mulandu oti unabera mavoti pa nthawi ya ulamuliro wako. Tiye tikambe za Kasambara, utayanazo nthawi ukalimbana ndizachitsankho zakozo. Koma lero uyang’ane ku mbuyo kuti, kodi akumunamizira kapena ai. Ngati akumunamizira uwonanso akachita appeal, koma ine ndikuona ngati nthawi yake yatha ameneyu apa ndiye amunjata basi. Mukhothimotu munali mafunso ndi mayankho, pofika judge kugamula kuti njateni uyu ndiye kuti anagwa ndifunso limodzi osankhala awiri koma limodzi. Kaya zako izo bvumbwe, ndapita.

  8. Kodi iwe wapolice umalekelanji kumanga wamuthalika ataba mavoti, wamuthalika ndichigawenga chachikulu malawi yose kapena umamuwopa eti apolice ose sakugwila bwino ntchito yawo achosedwe alowe anyuwani pansana panu apolice nose
