Former President Peter Muthalika has denied claims linking him to the albino killings saying this is just a propaganda by the current regime to divert people’s attention from the ongoing hardships the country is facing under Tonse Alliance.
The former head of state is reacting to the order by Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) to Malawi Police Service to investigate Muthalika and Hertherwick Ntaba if they are linked to the spate of albino killings the country has been experiencing especially during the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) regime under Muthalika.
In a statement signed by Muthalika, the DPP leader says the current government is doing anything it can to destroy his name to the public eye.
“I am once again very sad to note that Chakwera’s government has started drumming up the same malicious propaganda against me in order to divert public opinion from corruption scandals, the rising cost of living, total loss of economic direction and complete failure of leadership. I am fully aware that Chakwera’s government is conspiring day and night to cook up charges that should destroy my name for reasons best known to them,” part of the statement reads.
Muthalika has also dared Chakwera to bring to the public findings of the commission of inquiry he instituted to find the truth about the albino killings saying if not, he (Muthalika) will be forced to make it public.
According to Muthalika, the report was submitted to Chakwera but he has chose not to release to the public.
