Former President of Malawi, Professor Peter Muthalika has said his brother, Bingu Wa Muthalika who ruled the country from 2004 to 2012 was allegedly assassinated.

Mutharika said this during a press briefing at his house in Mangochi acknowledging that the late President Bingu could have been alive if he wasn’t assassinated.

“Its true that Bingu was poisoned. Something was put in his juice. I know the people but let me leave it here, “he said without revealing names of those involved.

Unlike Peter Muthalika’s recent sentiments, Bingu was announced dead on April, 5 April due to cardiac arrest as indicated by medical personnel. He died at the age 78 while in office.

On the other issue, Mutharika has once again refuted the allegation linking him to the albino killings.

He says, he set a team when he was President to investigate the albino abduction and killings.

According to Mutharika the team travelled to Tanzania to investigate the market but they found no established market for the body parts.

He has once again indicated that the report on the investigation was submitted to the office of the President and it is yet to be made public by President Lazarus Chakwera who is now in office.

Present at the briefing include the party’s administrative secretary Francis Mphepo, regional governor (South) Charles Mchacha, national organising secretary Chimwemwe Chipungu, vice-president (East) Bright Msaka and other senior party members.
