Day Light Robbery: Ralph Kasambara Pays Himself and His Boys MK20 Million In Compensation

Mr kasambara with colleagues soon after being released

The Attorney General and Justice Minister, Ralph Kasambara and his five accomplices are to be paid Mk20 million of tax payers money in damages, apparently for false imprisonment.

The other five include  Brian Magoya, Arthur Chikankheni, Ali Kaka, Mayamiko Kadango and Patrick Gadama.

This came about after a mutual consent by both parties between  government and Ralph Kasambara’s law firm.

Ironically government is also being represented by the Attorney General who also just happens to be Ralph Kasambara.

This was indicated in a consent order, dated 30 July 2012 by a lawyer from Ralph and Arnold’s Associates, Attorney general, Ralph Kasambara and deputy registrar of high court of Malawi, Nyakwawa usiwasiwa.

The consent was arrived at as a condition for withdraw of a contempt of court lawsuit which Kasambara and his friends field against top police officers for denying a court bail and release oder  that demanded their immediate release.

The damages and party cost are here by mutually consensually agreed at a total sum of MK20, 000,000.00”  read part of the order

More interestingly, the order says the office  of the Attorney General who also happens to be headed by Ralph Kasambara  shall see to it that the money is paid out.

that damages for false imprisonment and party cost for the above listed actions are payable by the attorney General” reads the order.

Police arrested Ralph Kasambara when some three men were seriously injured after being tortured by Mr Kasambara’s men under his order.

According to Mr Kasmabara then, the three were  suspected  to have been sent to petrol bomb his office.

However in Malawi,  it is illegal  to  take the law in your own hands and seriously injured a suspect.

Just like any law breaker, Mr Kasambara and his friends were arrested on abetting charges but the issue was dramatically escalated politically  by his other friends (well wishers ) and opponents of then president Bingu Wa Mutharika.

Mr Kasmabara managed to obtain bail papers quickly with his lawyer Wapona Kitta when the judiciary in the country was on strike. This led the police to start investigation as they suspected corrupt acts to have taken place.

Kasambara’s Victims

Mr Kasambara was later released on bail from a hospital bed at Mwaiwathu after he had fallen ill while in police custody.

Kasambara’s friend Shepher Mumba was also arrested for false pretence when he singed the release oder at the prison  where kasambara was being kept.

However soon after Joyce Banada ascending into power, Mr Kasambara was appointed attorney general and justice minister despite having a court case against him.

Dramatically the case has ended up with Mr Kasambara and his friends getting paid Mk20 million in compensation and shepherd Mumba’s case has also died as the state failed to show up at the court.

Commentators have voiced out concerns over Mr Kasambaras conflicting positions , and recent development will continue to emphasize people’s concerns.

President Joyce Banda also appointed Atupele Muluzi, Casim Chilupha who also had court cases which clearly undermined the legal system of the country

    John Kapito and Loti Dzonzi are the only hope and voice of reason, please Mr. Kapito take up this issue head on. We cant just be paying taxes for a few to share, its unfortunate, immoral and unthinkable!

    We are in trouble indeed!!

  5. sikusinja  August 9, 2012 at 12:53 pm

    It is only in Malawi where people who had cases in court can still be appointed to the public office. It does not happen elsewhere. This is the consequences. Good luck Malawi.

  6. Ife  August 9, 2012 at 12:04 pm

  7. Ndirande Love  August 9, 2012 at 10:00 am

    Malawians to accept things like this to be happening have indeed a long way to go to develop to homo sapiens level.

  8. BigMan  August 9, 2012 at 9:12 am

    Joyce Banda is related to Ralph Kasambara and they are sharing the spoils. This PP regime is a total sham.

    Ralph must resign right now by public demand. We need a huge strike against that decision right now. The problem is that the NGOs have been bought. All of them are now chairing this board and that, do we expect anybody of them to see the wrongs Joyce, Khumbo, Kasambara and the like are doing. They have also cancelled legally offered tenders for subsidy fertilizer to award themselves. Joyce ali mu Zuack Limited imene ili geared for susidy fertilizer and fuel distribution, manager wake ndi Fahad ali mu Lingazi House mu. Amalawi tili pheee, agalu amenewa akutibela, abesanso nyanja yathu tikawalekelera mbuzizi!! Tatiyeni nawo pompano achangamuke!!

    Kasambara is a crook. Indeed, he is paying himself and Joyce Banda is getting something for PP campaign in 2014. How many people were arrested by Mutharika that should be compansated. What about 20th July victims? Kasambara co. had a very hidden agenda when they were criticising Mutharika – to get in power and loot. A day is coming for PP to pay for these sins. It is really sad Joyce Banda is being influenced by these people who were not just critising Mutharika but were full of ethnic hatred. Now they think its their time to eat.

    Ralph Kasambara will be Joyce Banda’s downfall. Too bad she can’t see that.

  15. jeftali  August 9, 2012 at 6:16 am

    The problem with our lawyers in general is deep rooted in the way we train and licence them.Look the same Ralph Kasambara failed to be prosecuted by any lawyer from justice ministry, the reason was said to be that atleast all of them at one time were taught by him.Is that sound? Secondly, i dont know why we are crying about taxpayers money when we all know that our judges, law society and the lawyers are classmates all of them from chancellor college.You cannot rule out the possibility of injustice and corruption in that case.There is no country in the world today where you just have one instititution that teaches law.Ndizofuna.As iam talking now, the council for legal education is deliberately holding back examinations for those trained with other universities.Because of this, we have less than 200 practising lawyers, all of them, a bunch of classmates.Our judiciary is not safe, find out from other lawyers, they will tell you that Ralph does not lose a case……..does it mean that since Malawi was born, there is no one who can match him in the legal circles, that is stupid.Remove protectionism in our legal profession, then the services will be fair and if the judiciary , law society and the judiciary is mixed up, there is going to be a certain degree of fairness…….

    PP government politicians, they have started enriching themselves. We have a poor calibre of politicians. That is why we should have complete new cabinet. Will all those people who were wrongly improsened also get compensation? What about Reverand from Nkhoma synod, Atupele, Kapito etc, will he as Minister of Justice initiate the compensation of millions to these people. May all those who felt they were wrongly improsoned go to the Attorney General and get the compensation. How about the two homosexuals who were improsoned and released? I hope they will be millionaires too. It appears we are yet to see more interesting things ahead with this type of politicians. Now we realize why Bingu had fired some of these politicians. He noticed them quickly.

    Jezebel wakana kuchita re-administer the leaked MSCE exams but she is giving Rafayele and his fellow criminals MK20m koma abale kukuchedwa kucha.

  21. Malawian  August 8, 2012 at 10:50 pm

    Extremely worrying development. What goes round comes round. There are many ways of squandering government coffers and tis is not far off!

    People who were injured receive no compensation and you guys will be getting millions. God will punish you for this injustice! This is a Gvt which is being hailed as one that is guarding Human Rights!

    I dont see any problem here. The truth is Ralph anamangidwa and nkhani zake sizinayende bwino we all know. Settlement ya out-of-court imayenda choncho. Kapena a Malawi Voice munali ndi njira ina? DPP ikumva kuwawa!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  24. Chimwemwe Pitilosi  August 8, 2012 at 7:38 pm

    Bingu administration created so much about havoc to this nation. ……. would be an insane decision to put these guys back into power

  25. Banzo  August 8, 2012 at 6:50 pm

    Thus how it goes. Zikomera a ndalama and the government of today favours those who have some money. What can we say because they are god of PP. Lets wait and see as our times is coming very soon!!!

  26. Malamulo  August 8, 2012 at 6:35 pm

    Aka sikoyamba. Even case ya Anita Kalinde imene ma lawyer ake ndi Ralph and Arnold ya Attorney General yemweyo. Imeneyonso azipatsa money yochuluka zedi. You can find out from Capital Hill. Atibeladi sitinati.
