Former People’s Party (PP) Spokesperson Hophmally Makande has said former Malawi Police Inspector General responsible for criminal investigation, Nelson Bophani is the main man behind the shooting of former Budget Director Paul Mphwiyo.

Makande disclosed this on Tuesday during when he was being cross-examined by former Minister of Justice and Constitutional Affairs Raphael Kasambara before the High Court Judge Michael Mtambo in the capital Lilongwe.

He told the court that when he met Mphwiyo in police cell in Area 3, he got the sense during the conversation that it was Bophani who masterminded the shooting.Bophani1Makande said Mphwiyo explained to him the whole saga on his free will and in the process he mentioned Kasambara as Kasambara as one of the suspects who might have conspired to kill him.

According to Makande, Mphwiyo told them that it was Bophani who was dictating to him what to write and who to mention as he was told it was “a directive from above” to nail down Kasambara.

“Mphwiyo was just saying a lot of things and I know that him being shot was Bophani at work,” he said.

When Kasambara quizzed Makande to read the affidavit it’s when it was learned that former People’s Party (PP) Vice President for the South Brown Mpinganjira was threatening Mphwiyo.

Meanwhile the High court has summoned Mpinganjira to appear in court on Friday next week and the case has been adjourned to January 12, 2016.
