Recently, Muhammad Afzal and Ayub Kazi were attacked and robbed off over  K2 million in total.

” We are making sure that business people are well protected and that there business places are well secured,” Tembo aid.

Meanwhile,  Tembo said the police have leads to the suspects who are connected to the attack.

    they must not evade taxes,then there will be enough money for fuel for the police.They must stop stashing cash in Swiss banks,then Malawi will benefit.They must pay realistic wages to blacks,then there will never be inside jobs to these robberies.They keep too much money in their houses to avoid banks.Idi Amin saw it,Kamuzu Banda saw it,Mutharika benefits from his close association with them

    If you want them go to there countries than you malawians should work hard.tell me if no asians can you produce a loaf of bread .

    None of these India boys are of Malawian Asian decent!!! Serves them right they all buy there citizenship passport from corrupt immigration officers and call them selves Malawian Asian what nonsense send them back to India

  4. Chonchobe says:

    go back home Asians. hope you have a home.

  5. Aaron Mwala says:

    Pay proper taxes pay poor Malawians who you call mwanaboys better before you complain of security

  6. zitsiru inu says:

    To the ppl with narrow frustrated idiotic minds and against mwenyez. Tell me how much tax do u pay? U do businesses very well in your areas and lie the authority you don’t qualify the threshold of 10m turnover in a year.

    MRA has deliberately kept a blind eye over you guys… don’t make touch noise and don’t behave as a good citizen as you are only begging free monies in theft or kupempha which is a noum and tradition in Malawi to beg.

    You are protected by authority so better keep your shit mouth shut.

  7. Busy brains says:

    @ Chefourpence, you are 100 % right! These Indians should pay full tax to the govt and complain latter. If our govt is struggling in getting monies is simply these crooked Indians. Just imagine one Mwenye invading K50 billion!! Or lets say only K5 billion. How many are indulging in this crooked ways? Don’t be fooled, all the Indians make night meetings conniving how to swindle govt in taxes. Have you wondered why they insist on speaking their foreign language in our land?

  8. Busy brains says:

    To be frank, I have no mercy with this kind of robbery. The aim behind keeping all that money was to change into dollars and externalise to India. In Blanytre, there is OG Issah at Maselema who handles millions of Kwachaz from his fellow Indians and give them dollars. Likewise, if I was the govt, I would close Victoria forex bureau for it is a hub of all calendastine money laundering activities of all the Mwenyez. When they are going abroad, this bureau is the one that do all the dirty games. Ndimamulira Bingu pa zimene anapanga potseka ma forex bureau onse. I verily tell you my fellow Malawians that if this country is not developing, then it’s because of these Mwenyez. What we see its a fraction of what they steal from us! Anthuwa ndi agalu ndikukuuzani!!! Bingu anali akamuna!!!! May his soul rest in peace!

    While I blame the so called thieves, but I remember some two or so months ago the President gave MPS vehicles amounting to over 500. You mean to say that not even one vehicle was given to Kasungu Police Station? This was the time when the IG, Kacham who has thrown in the towel was appointed. He pledged to curb all thieves but alas stealing and armed robbery were the order of the day during his last 3 months as number cop. PLEASE GOVERNMENT SUPPORT THE POLICE SERVICE SO THAT THEY CAN SERVE US BETTER.

  10. tt says:

    as long as you are not providing the vehicle so that they should just be guarding you indians but rather for the whole community.

    and am also surprised that you indians are complaining about thieves when you yourselves have stolen a lot of Malawians money through tax invasions. an example is that MK2,000,000 which was stolen, why keep all that amount in the house, i know you want to change it on the black market and send it Bombay

  19. ujeni says:

    Stupid police, dont tell people what to do with their money, which side are you on? Crime has skyrocketed from nowhere why? Thieves know that Malawi is lead by thieves and most of the crimes mainly robbers involves malawi soldiers and police personnel who provide arms. Foreigners too like west Africans have a hand too. We have an idle police force good at corruption at roadblocks. Challenge us, apart from roadblocks corruption work by traffic cops, what do the police do. Malawi is too small not to find crime perpetrators.

  20. ndadabwa says:

    its the police who are organizing the robery. just mobilise yourselves and kill them. if you tell tell to assist you they will never because they are the ones stealing from you. go into their houses you will find expensive things

  22. Our country is out of security now we don’t know where are we going now government is failing secure the citizens of Malawian.It is very sad indeed robbers are every where day and night we are staying because of the grace of god

  23. kd says:

    amwenye you are useless people actually thumbs up to the thugs…. you treat black Malawians like slaves what else do u expect ? what are you doing in the villages like kasungu? all the fellow amwenyes are in town busy stealing money from government in form of tax…. musova

  24. AKETE says:

    Police are conniving with the thugs to carry out the burglary and at the end they pretend to be hunting them thugs while shielding them. We have a CID officer in Area 25 from Kanengo Police station. He is always with some thugs who are terrorizing the area and him acts as a sales man of the stolen property!

  25. Ma bank akutibelaso momwe akupangila ma profits as if they are operating in a diffrent malawi. A police tachangamukani tisamukila maiko enatu ife.

  29. Nkasai says:

    These Asians keep money in houses because they avoid tax and to externalise it as a result they are a good target for robbers !This is your making !

  30. chefourpence says:

    Pay your taxes in full then complain! Why should Malawi provide you with full security when you don’t pay tax in full. You evade Tax,security evades you.

    1. Adsss says:

      Asians are the highest tax payers in malawi. Find out

  31. Kalulu says:

    Kasungu is the one of the worst places to live in Malawi due to robberies. Malawi army camp is there why should Malawians suffer at hands of people who think like Islamic State. Our politicians sleep at times. Please eliminate any barbaric acts anywhere in our country by using any resource at our hands and if it should be the army let it be.

  32. Mwananjovu says:

    I know it is because of the transfer of Nyondo. Nyondo know his job very well. When Nyondo was in-charge, thugs stopped causing havoc in Kasungu.

  33. Zanga Phee! says:

    The first complaint was from the Chinese community in Limbe Now in Mzuzu,i guess this is why the IG resigned. But why? DPP the ruling party regard themselves as security is their number one to be considered, Please Men have a closer look on this issue don’t take chances weather they are keeping in their houses or not what matters is security, it is their choice please secure them now see My name.
