Mlotha died on Tuesday following the attack which he sustained from the attack during the wee hours of Monday by unknown assailants.

Police Public Relations Officer, Assistant Deputy Commissioner of Police Roda Manjolo said on Monday that people who attacked Area 23 Police Unit are not known and they are carrying investigations.

Lilongwe Police Station Public Relations Officer Kingsley Dandaula said the incident happened around 1:00 AM when a group of ten people sought assistance from the police unit only to attack the Officer in charge who was attending to them.

”It is indeed true that the incident happened earlier this morning. A group of over ten people dressed in military attire comprising green T-shirts and camouflage trousers attacked Officer in Charge  who was attending to them. Officers on duty came to rescue  only to have a petrol bomb thrown at them before the group kidnapped the Officer in Charge,” said Dandaula.

According to Dandaula, residents around the unit who were awaken by the commotion at the unit mobilised themselves to put out the fire and search for the kidnapped officer.

Spokesperson of Mlotha family, Dellick Mlotha is calling upon Police Service to probe and demand justice.

“We are very shocked over the demise of our relative but what pains us is that up to now we don’t know who killed our relation,” said Mlotha.

Condemn and condolence

Meanwhile, President Peter Mutharika has condemened the attack and send his condolences to the bereaved family.

“The President and Government extend their deepest condolences to sergeant Mlotha’s wife and children, the extended family and the entire Malawi Police Service on this unfortunate death” reads a statement issued by the State House.

The statement, signed by Chikondi Juma, adds: “The President further condemns the attacks that some unknown people have been perpetrating targeting Police officers and ordinary civilians which have left several people injured and some dead and in some cases, infrastructure destroyed”.

Last week, deputy commander of Malawi Defence Force, Lieutenant General Griffin Supuni, was detained at the Area 18 Police station for assaulting police officers who had responded to a robbery attack.

Some suspect the attacks are carried by some army officers.

    Ndife anthu a modzi. Why killing one another. Police have their own responsibilities while Army also. Their is nobody who is superior

  2. concerned citizen says:

    God have a mercy on our country and keep it a land of peace

  3. The problem is the deputy army commander instead of finding out what has he just started hitting g4s guard then thugs escaped this army people they need proper education on security

  4. Patriotic Citizen says:

    Its some overzealous junior soldiers who have done this. Believe it or not. But its bad and sad, also worrisome to Malawi. Let them be brought to book

  7. EYE WITNESSES says:

    They gunned down a soldier in ZA, put into custody a senior Army officer, MDF have their own Military Police to deal with such cases why did the police acted that way? Let the game begin!!!!! DPP woyeeeee!!!! APM woyeeeeee!!!!!

    I blame the police commissioner on this,,, how come u start awar that u cant finish? U ‘ve been killing the army ppl for so long and u put a general of the army for three days without to follow a proper protocal.

  11. Samuel says:

    MDF takes laws in its hands why? Mpofunika kumalemba ntchito soldiers well qualified like Ku police. Ku police adayamba kale employing well qualified people who can understand and interpret law while MDF ikulembabe low qualified people mapeto ake they don’t know how to discuss matters. Look at IGs in police, most of them are university graduates so when they join police they interpret laws properly because they apply their intellect not just having security certificate without having social scientific reasoning. Mapeto ndi riots all over perpetuated by superiors. Zimvere mumtolo.

  12. Choipa chitsata mwini says:

    When you shoot to kill and label the deceased ” hardcore criminals ” without any tangible evidence , always remember , that hardcore criminal has relatives and children who feel the same pain that you are feeling. And they just might do some thing like what has. Happened.
    Bringing The MDF into this is very childish, for one the , the operation was too amateurish to have been carried out by a well trained fighting force.
    No one can tell the difference between the army coumaflage uniform from the one won by the PMF or indeed some of the imitations one can get from the Chinese shops especially at night.
    If and very big IF, it was the solja boys, I would expect them to have enough horse sense in them not leave a trail leading home !

  24. M Mjumira says:

    We have tangible evidence that its the MDF Commandos doing this with authorisation from Supuni. The President should summon the Army Commander and his deputy to explain this or just fire them. Their objective is to protect us malawians and not to kill us. These Malawi army savages akutinyansa kwambiri. Malawians let us rise up against this but also dont forget kuti many soldiers nowadays are residing outside balacks nde nafe tiyamba kubwenzera becoz those police officers you are killing have relations and we feel the pain.

  25. Mr.Bambo says:

    Shame MDF.Supuni must be fired.

  26. Kanyimbi says:

    The MDF is failing to defend the Lake Malawi and now they are killing people who protect us. To shame with these savages.

  27. Political problems in Malawi will make it become a banana Nation.All this is because the government didnt address the MDF that their revenge to the Police will turnish the image of the country to the outside world.The current government owes Malawi ppl an explanation to a number of problems facing the country and put forward appropriate measures solve them.From the look of things it seems these two security bodies have become very political forgetting that they are independent bodies. They are throughly controlled by politics.

    This is very painful to the nation, the police but more especially to the wife, children and relatives of Mlotha. REST IN PEACE. He just like any employee rose up early in the morning and go to work to earn legitimate meagre wage for the bare survival and school fees of his children only to be killed by fellow Malawians? Ana ake ndi mkazi wake atani? GOD BLESS MALAWI to get rid of these evil elements.

  33. Man Ifeyo says:

    This problem needs a political solution and we shld know that these attacks are really being carried by the mdf on police whilst robberies are being done by the police and some criminals on innocent civilians.constution shld be changed so that the inumbent president shld not choose the army n police generals as these institutions are becoming political coz of politicians hence the internal fights within the security bodies.plz negotiate 4 the gud of the country,u r not in secondary xool!

  44. Mmmmh nkhani ndiyaikulu coz ikukhuza lieutenant general ageneral kusafuna kuzichepetsa Mulungu achita nanu and without beating up de bush u r rensponsible 4 all attacks which hav happened.

  45. Robson Chimtengo says:

    This is a wake up call that our police lacks proper equipment for self defense. Had it been that they were well equipped they would have gunned those assailants down. We don’t want ugly scenes like this happening in our country. To the Police, Please give your officers that will help curb this malpractice which has started costing innocent lives. If you ( Police officers) get another attack, please please just shoot to kill. Check your safety first from such attacks. These thugs are armed and prepared to kill, so if you are not well prepared you get killed. It’s better to kill a thug than have yourself killed.

  46. Make Peter says:

    Very painful. I cry with you. I lost my brother some years back due to sickness, but the way it pains me up to this day! If there are some disagreements between MDF and MPS please come on a round table before a lot of innocent souls gets affected.

  64. Charter says:

    If the army is indeed doing this in smoke-screens, it shows cowardice! And the police-military enmity is absurd and retrogressive. Both these groups have outstanding security issues at borders and within the country. That’s where they need to show their superiority. Whether the army wins against police has no benefit to themselves in the first place, let alone to the people they serve. I hope strongly that these are just thugs unrelated to the army. If indeed, then we could be thinking of reconstituting our police service – it has shown since the dawn of multiparty governance that that the force cannot protect Malawians, and now they cannot protect themselves! It reminds me of the melt-down of Iraq army in the face of ISI, or that of Nigerian army against Boko Haram! I shouldn’t be going that far! Let me believe all these are empty conjectures!

    So sad indeed. The talk of wide spread sense of insecurity have been all over for months but authorities have given it a blind eye. Much because it affected ordinary citizens. Now it is those responsible for security being victims. Even Police Stations are not secure from thugs. No rapid response at a police station and no trace of criminals. I am afraid. This is how Boko Haram has thrived. Targeting security officers first then civilians later. We may have our own Boko Haram in the making. Fore warned is fore armed. Let’s wake up. RIP

Security breakdown in this Country is causing threats and sleepless nights. POLICE, please wake up. I think something went wrong somewhere and some of you knows whats going on and where it went wrong. Before a very senior officer meets the this sad thing, please try plan B.
    Im just a concerned citizen. Sikale lija taluza a silikali athu ena ku Balaka. Bread winners are dying, dont just watch.

    Killing a police officer is very serious crime and I pray the culprits be found and receive the maximum sentence under the relevant law. Mpaka kupha a police abale. What a shame!!

    RIP Mr. Mlotha….. but is it true that the Police does not know the attacker? hmmm, where is Malawi going?

  149. Mbanangwa says:

    Could this be military retaliation, a form of guerrilla revenge for the military personnel massacred in Zomba?
