Police said investigations shows cashgate could be the reason to Njaunju’s savage murder.

Director of training at Police headquarters, Richard Luhanga told a news conference in Lilongwe on Wednesday that the investigators are pursuing a number of conspiracies.

“We cannot rule out that murder is connected to his work [at ACB),” said Luhanga, a senior police commissioner.

“What we are doing right now is to connect the dots,” he said.

Luhanga said police are following up “a sequence of events” that took place a day before Njauju was murdered.

Police also hinted at what Nyasa Times reported that the murder of Njauju could have been a case of mistaken identity.

“We are doing our interrogations with various people and also analysing information that we are currently getting from the public. At the moment, all options are welcome,” he said.

Njauju was brutally murdered and his body thrown aside presidential villas along presidential drive in the capital city’s Area 44 on July 2 2015.

His body was found with two gunshot wounds according to an autopsy report and his official car a Toyota Hilux D4D double cabin was burnt down to ashes at Mtsiriza near Area 49 in Lilongwe.

But police did not give much details into the progress of the investigations.

Government through Minister of Justice and Constitutional Affairs Samuel Tembenu has since said it is considering a comprehensive review of security of ACB officers and public prosecutors.

Some sections of the society are speculating that ACB boss was killed by a “state-sponsored” mafia-style attack.

Postmortem results showed that Njauju was shot twice in the neck and chest before he was buried near Lilongwe River.

Njauju’s brutal murder has sent shockwaves among officers working in agencies investigating and prosecuting corruption in the country.

    Deputy IG Jose was linked to the murder of Chasowa, and so was Mukhito, APM, Mulli and others. WNothing was done about it. What guarantee is there that their hahand is not again in this brutal murder?

  2. Mwemwe Nabanda says:

    This is not done by Lilongwe people. Lilongwe is just a base where these assailants and the deceased were based. DPP is in charge of this death mostly led by NIB boss Dausi. GOD ALMIGHTY FATHER reveal the killers. May Njauju’s soul rest in peace.

  8. We all know what dpp govnt is capable of doing, killing is in their blood, the Munthalika clan will always be on flntline killing any one who wil or is exposing them to the public abov hw they are stilling in Govnmt cofers. But let me warn them that the cry of an innocent man will is heard by the most powerful man thats God. They wil all be dying like cocoloches.

    Whoever is behind this the day is coming.The day that he/she will beg for mercy but it will be too late.God is watching n will expose u.

  10. Sekulu says:

    If only my Government our seriously means it, let them hire the ‘Scotland Yard’ Police to investigation who is behind it.

    I applaud the seriousness of the ACB but they are subject to manipulation, threats, blockages and above all deaths.

    Mr president show the Nation you are different from all those who came before you. All of you cashgaters, the Handwriting on the Wall is on Rev 3:14 and Matt 27:1-7 (King James Version).

    Whether you be surround with soldiers, Police or Vigilantes, you are not safe. The Infallible God is seeing all this and will exact vengeance at the appointed time, whether it be a clerk, PS, MP, Minister, Bishop, Reverend, Prophet or President.

    Flashback: In December, 1999 when people heard that the world is going to end by January, 2000 and with all computers crashing out, people withdrew their monies by the millions and started giving it freely to the lucky ones. But giving back the money did not help Judas as by then it will too late.

  11. Mwana Mai says:

    This is the problem with shortsighted Malawians. Just because it has been mentioned that the death could be related to cash gate cannot mean it is you, me or that one. Why can’t we leave the police to continue sorting out the mess? What are you going to say if the finding points to someone in your camp or backyard? Osamafulumira kumeza kutafuna musanamalize, abale. Tisamve zoti ndi “Political witch hunt” inatu?

  12. Samuel Lwara says:

    How does it make somebody in the police force to be a senior commissioner? And how does our Malawi Government assess failures and progress out of our security body? I can see some positions are only meant to give false hopes to ordinary citizens whilst only harbors criminal activities of the day. Lets all our police service men and women be demoted, characterized and ranked as constables at the mean time until Njaunjus assailants are brought to book. We are tired of such type of unprofessional excuses, as some of us have been victims of our own police.

  15. Maximum Prison says:

    But we already said its better to remand all the Cash gate suspects in order to protect witnesses, evidence, prosecutors and Investigators! But since the rich suspects are not remanded. Remand is for the poor, what do you expect! Here we are losing an innocent soul. Get it right! REMMAND ALL CASH GATE SUSPECTS!

  16. Kavuluvulu says:

    I agree with Bwangazi.

  19. zonse ndi nthawi says:

    DPP Chipani cha kuba, kupha anthu. MCP is now a clean party because the murders had migrated to DPP, UDF good examples are Dausi, Bakili. How can government kills its citizens like chickens yet these citizens are doing their assigned tasks, please GOD help us.

  20. bwangazi says:

    Was killed by 92 billion cashgaters!!!!! Dont rule out mulli and masangwi!!!!!

  21. Che Nkope says:

    Where human blood is shed, the truth shall prevail.it’s very interesting to note that cases like these just die like that. It’s high time Malawians have been fooled. We are very stubborn, we speak behind clozed doors with no action atall. Time has come for Revolution in Malawi otherwise we are taken for a ride by these mafias.

  22. DR.CASHGATE says:
