Banda on killing charge
Saturday 07 January 1995
On Wednesday, a commission of inquiry said police acting on official orders had killed three of Dr Banda's cabinet ministers, Aaron Gadama, Dick Matenje and Twaibu Sangala, and a MP, David Chiwanga, in May 1983 and disguised their deaths as a car accident.
Dr Banda, who ruled Malawi from independence in 1964 until he was ousted in the first multi-party elections in May last year, is under house arrest. His successor, President Bakili Muluzi, upbraided his supporters for attacking the offices of Dr Banda's Malawi Congress Party after the accusations.
Government sources said doctors would be consulted over whether Dr Banda, said to be in his mid-nineties and senile,was capable of standing trial.
