Atupele: Robbers attacked his house

Muluzi was attacked when a gang of 12 broke into his house through a hole they drilled in the perimeter fence in the backyard and made their way into the house.

The incident happened Friday last week.

Police said the gang also broke into the minister’s bedroom where they demanded cash and took away electronic gadgets and other valuables.

Lilongwe Police Station spokesperson Kingsley Dandaula said the law enforcers have since arrested three suspects after a tip-off from the public.

“We are still hunting down the other suspects. But we the arrested suspects will be taken to court,” said Dandaula.

Police have withheld names of the three suspects for fear of jeopardising investigations.

Meanwhile, Muluzi has changed houses after the robbery which has attracted different conspiracy theories from the public.

Recently, robbers also broke into the State Vice President Saulos Chilima’s  Mudi Residence. They were caught as well.

    Its only in Malawi where bandits and thieves have the courage to rob the presidents house. This clearly shows you that thieves know about how insecure the second citizen is. Atupele shouldn’t be surprised. Lets be honest, the Police should do more. Its should be proactive. Engage in more patrols. Seeks assistance from the army if need be.

  5. NICE JOB POLICE AND THANKS FOR THAT.

    Mob Justice is the solution. Zomati these thieves will be taken to court is nonsense. Which court are you talking about. The court will take 3yrs before judgement is given and the judgement will be 1 year suspended sentence. I have no kind words for our courts which are said to be manned by learned pple.

  14. Cicero says:

    Bravo thieves. You did a good job. You went to collect tax which Bakili stole from us. After all the difference between Atupele & the thieves is the former is a glorified hardcore criminal that is sophisticated in stealing while the latter are a traditional thieves using old methods. I have no sympathy for him. Atupele must first return the wealth his father stole which is enjoying or else I encourage thieves visit all cashgaters

  23. Redeemed says:

    Job well done, but I would have appreciated more if such quick response was to apply also to the victims of robbery who happens to be ordinary citizen. Fortunately enough no reported injuries.

    The rate of crime has seriously reached an alarming high point, the fact of the matter is that these perpetrators do not hail from heaven or from any strange land, these are people we are living with in our various communities, why don’t we develop a nerve and bravery enough to apprehending them?

    Some of them are our relatives even our sons, but we shoose to remain silence, forgeting that in so doing, we are actually promoting their evil acts. If I may ask how many of you have you looked straight into your nephew, son, or friend’s eye and say “what do you really do for a living?.

    Under hand activities orchestrated by people who regard Atupele as a threat to their political career, they say.

    Well done robbers, now go and search for his new residenceso that you accomplish your mission. Keep the fire burning!!!!

    1. Jokujoku says:

      @Chimangafisi, let me tell u that there is time for everything on this earth and the almighty Allah is there controlling every human beings life. If Atupele is a threat to your uncles political career then Allah who is in heaven will give him protection until one he will achieve what he wants in his life for Allah wil not give you a stone if you beg Him an egg

  26. Chimangafisi dollar says:

    well done robbers. Now search for his new residence so that you wind up your mission. Keep the fire burning!!!!

    1. Inu says:

      I doubt you will speak the same if they come to your house. For some of us who have experience armed robbery in our own homes, you would not wish that to happen to another human being no matter how much you do not like them. Our political differences should not remove humanity from us
