DPP politician Henry Mussa sentenced to nine years imprisonment for computer theft

Mussa now free

Democratic Progressive Party’s then flamboyant and swimming in corrupt money politicians are now facing the music with the old Chiradzulo former member of Parliament Henry Mussa now sentenced to nine years to serve a jail term.

Mussa who served as Information Minister during the era of DPP impunity alongside former Director of Information Gideon Munthali has been sentenced to nine years. For Munthali, 3 years is imprisonment for conspiracy to commit a felony and 6 years imprisonment for theft by a public person.

On the part of Mussa, 3 years imprisonment is for the offense of conspiracy to steal and 6 years imprisonment for the offense of receiving stolen property.

The sentence has been meted by High Court Judge Patrick Chirwa sitting in his capacity as Senior Resident Magistrate on Thursday in the capital Lilongwe following the duo’s conviction in October last year in relation to the case of 10 computers and a genset which disappeared at the Ministry of Information.

The only good thing is that both sentences shall run concurrently, starting from the date of conviction which means that the duo will be in jail for 6 years.

The next waiting for their fate is MERA’s former boss Collin’s Magalasi and former Deputy Minister Charles Mchacha among other DPP politicians who took Malawi as their farm in their alleged plunder and impunity.
