Fr. Muhosha, found guilty of playing a role in the murder of an albino man in MalawiZomba Diocese/Facebook

BLANTYRE, Malawi (LifeSiteNews) – On Monday June 27, 2022, the High Court of Malawi, presided over by Judge Dorothy Nyakaunda Kamanga, condemned a Catholic priest to 30 years in prison for participating in the brutal murder of a 22 year-old man with albinism in 2018.

Father Thomas Muhosha was condemned for his role in the murder of MacDonald Masambuka, along with four other perpetrators who also received a sentence of 30 years. Five others were given life sentences.

As LifeSite has previously reported, Judge Nyakaunda convicted Fr. Muhosha and eleven others of the murder of Masambuka in April 2022. Fr. Muhosha was one of seven suspects found to be guilty of selling Masambuka’s body parts, while the other five suspects were found guilty of actually committing the murder, including Masambuka’s brother – Cassim White Masambuka.

“The offense was motivated by the disability of the deceased, that of albinism,” said the judge, as reported by Africa News.

Fr. Muhosha, who had served as priest of Machinga Parish, located 100 kilometers northeast of the capital city of Blantyre, was warned by Judge Kamanga that he had betrayed the trust that many people had placed in him.

LifeSiteNews first alerted you that Opus Dei expelled African priest, Fr. JesusMary, for faithfully speaking the truth against Pope Francis’ harmful errors about same-sex civil unions. 

Then on July 4th, Pope Francis RETALIATED and BANNED Fr. JesusMary from celebrating HOLY MASS – even privately – for as long as he dares criticize Pope Francis!  

LifeSiteNews exposed Pope Francis’ suspension of Fr. JesusMary: 

"The African priest is now barred from any active ministry, including celebrating the Sacrifice of the Mass in public. He is permitted to say Mass privately on the condition that he refrains from writing criticism of the Roman pontiff."

Now, as you can see below, Twitter is joining Pope Francis and Opus Dei by CENSORING Fr. JesusMary and BLOCKING his posts from reaching faithful Catholics with the truth about God’s plan for marriage and the family! 

THE PERSECUTION AGAINST FAITHFUL PRIESTS MUST END NOW! SIGN OUR PETITION AND SEND YOUR VOICE TO POPE FRANCIS BEFORE IT’S TOO LATE! 

Fr. JesusMary is being PRESSURED into SILENCE by Pope Francis, Opus Dei, and Big Tech for defending Catholic teaching on marriage!  

 

FREE Fr. JesusMary to celebrate the Holy Mass again by joining THOUSANDS of Catholics already telling Pope Francis that you DEFEND Fr. JesusMary and the sacred Catholic Teaching on Marriage! 

Marriage and 2,000 years of traditional Catholic teaching are all under attack – we cannot let the global elites silence another voice for truth, thinking that they can succeed without us noticing! 

Sign our petition today and declare that you want Fr. JesusMary’s priestly faculties restored! 

Never before has Big Tech and a Roman Pontiff worked so hard to silence Catholic teaching and faithful priests - banning them from Mass for teaching the TRUTH! WE NEED YOUR VOICE ADDED TO OUR PETITION TO MAKE THE GOSPEL MESSAGE HEARD!

LIFESITENEWS IS GIVING FR. JESUSMARY A CRITICAL VOICE! WATCH JOHN-HENRY WESTEN'S EXCLUSIVE ONE-ON-ONE INTERVIEW WITH FR. JESUSMARY!

Our Lord promises that “the Truth will set you free” (John 8:31), and we need to free Fr. JesusMary to continue speaking the truth in the face of error and globalist intimidation.  

Without your voice added to the chorus of countless others, brave priests like Fr. JesusMary will be singled-out and targeted one-by-one until we have no one left to teach genuine Catholic teaching. 

Raise your voice now by signing our brand-new petition defending Fr. JesusMary, the Holy Mass, and Free Speech! 

Fr. JesusMary has shown us the way into a new battle for the Holy Mass and Catholic orthodoxy against a modernist and worldly narrative infecting the Church today – the same narrative that promotes Pachamama, communist China, and issues a joyless statement after the overturning of Roe v. Wade.  

We cannot let the suspension of faithful priests from celebrating Mass be our new direction for the Church! 

Alert Pope Francis that Fr. JesusMary MUST be restored to priestly ministry and freed from encroaching free-speech oppressors!  

Now is our time to change the course of this important fight for Catholic teaching before Fr. JesusMary is completely silenced! 

Thank you for signing our petition in support of the TRUTH about marriage and in defense of faithful Catholic priests like Fr. JesusMary!  

Thank you for defending this brave Catholic priest and his duty to celebrate the Mass! 

P.S. - Censorship only works when too few people admit that they know it's happening. Now is our chance to tell Pope Francis that we know Fr. JesusMary is being silenced – and that we will not be silent on his behalf!

MacDonald went missing in February of 2018 and was discovered dead a month later, with his arms and legs missing. The court determined that the deceased was brutally murdered in a cemetery, after being duped by his brother Cassim Masambuka.

According to the judge, the convicts took advantage of the deceased’s psychological need for love, duping him into believing that they had found him a prospective wife for him to meet. According to court documents, upon arrival at the scene, Masambuka was seized by his friends, murdered, before his body was burned with petrol and then buried.

Mr. William Masapi, a representative of people with albinism in Malawi, was very satisfied by the ruling. “We are also human beings,” he said.

“We need to enjoy life; we have responsibilities in this country,” Masapi continued. “Some of us work in government and contribute to its development. People should learn from today that we are similar to them.”

Mr. Boniface Kibwana, the National Coordinator for the Catholic Commission for Justice and Peace in Malawi, was also pleased with the ruling, saying that it had created “momentum as far as sensitization is concerned,” which would help “put to a stop issues of killing and abductions of people with albinism in Malawi.”

Archbishop George Desmond Tambala, the bishop of Zomba Diocese, strongly condemned the actions of his priest in a statement issued on April 17, 2018. According to the Voice of Africa report, Fr. Muhosha is now in the process of being excommunicated.

Attacks on people with albinism are a persistent problem in Malawi, Tanzania and other southern African countries. Malawi has the highest population of people who lack pigment in their skin, hair, and eyes so as a result, many Africans have trafficked them in the hopes of acquiring wealth, magical potions, and other items for ritual purposes.

A now archived 2009 report from the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies reported senior police officers in Tanzania suggesting that “a complete set of albino body parts – including all four limbs, genitals, ears, tongue and nose – was fetching the equivalent of 75,000 US dollars.”

According to a 2021 Amnesty International report, the number of reported crimes against albinos in Malawi has increased to over 170 cases, including more than 20 murders, since 2014.
