Cop Naphiyo knows Njauju killers: Arrested for bragging he knows assailants

Police criminal investigations department officer Christopher Naphiyo was arrested by fellow law enforcers after he was overheard boasting at a drinking joint in Lilongwe that he knows assailants of former Anti Corruption Bureau (ACB) corporate affairs director Issa Njauju.

Gondwa:  No further details as of now

Gondwa: No further details as of now

Sources in the police say some people, whom he was drinking with at Falls in the capital city reported him to police after he boasted he knew the killers of Njauju.

His is yet to be charged after he was arrested on Friday.

Police headquarters spokesperson Nicholas Gondwa refused to give detailed account on the arrest of Naphiyo who was based at police headquarters.

His pals describe Naphiyo as a reticent cop who has very few friends whom he interacts with.

Naphiyo is the second person to be arrested in connection with the death of Njauju after the arrest of another man who has since been charged with murder after he was found with a mobile phone belonging to the graft busting body’s third in command.

ACB director Lucas Kondowe could also not give information on the arrest of Naphiyo only saying his organisation is closely working with the police to ring to book the murderers of Njauju.

Civil society organisations are putting pressure on government to do more in order to arrest the killers of Njauju who was brutally murdered in July and his half buried body was found near presidential villas in Lilongwe.

    This is an issue more to do with ethics than crime. What some people are failing to understand is that pa mowa pamakambidwa nkhani zambiri. It’s not that Naphiyo just came from no where and bragged about knowing the killers. Anangokamba maganizo ake ndimmene akudziwira pa nkhani ya Njaunju yomwe imakambidwa. Now as a man in uniform ethically he was supposed to remain silent regardless of what he knows on the matter. But you know pa mowa mmene zimakhalira. Sometimes you lose your senses and talk too much.

    The main issue is that he linked the murder to DPP. That’s why the arrest. Otherwise he was only supposed to be questioned as a matter of ethics or clues rather than being arrested. He is not a suspect. As I said before, the police have no clue as to who the real killers are. If at all they know, their hands are tied by some forces within. I tell you if he did not link the talk to DPP he would not have been arrested.

    Why is it that JB openly mentioned that she knows the shooters of Mphwiyo but she is still a free thief on the run? The whole nation heard it from her mouth. But she is free up now and the attempted murder case is still stalling. Now someone here is arrested for saying he thinks he knows the killers. Come on!

    Nkhani iyi ndibwino kuyimvetsa. Uja wapolisi anakhuzidwa ndiku phedwa kwa Chasowa ndi wanamba 3 kupolisi (mbali ya CID) chibwerere boma la DPP. Nde ndi kaphedwe ka Njauju kakuwonetseratu kuti apolisi zikuwakhuza. Choyamba sanasamale pazofunika kuchita pofuna kusonkhanitsa umboni wakuphedwa kwa Njauju. Chachiwiri kuphedwa kwa Njauju kunachitikira kumalo kowophsya koti munthu wamba sangapiteko. Palibenso china chirichonse chimene chiuwonesa apolisi chidwi pankhaniyi. Nde uyu Naphiyo amutenga chifukwa akudziwadi amene anapha Njauju.

  15. Maky says:

    arresting him because he knows the assailants instead of asking him who the assailants are? vuuuuuuuuuuu

  16. Cover up plan……work of the devil

  17. Kamwendo says:

    Why did you not arrest JB when she said she knows those who shot Mphwiyo while she was sober? This guy was drunk and can easily say her mind was corrupted by alcohol.

  18. Kanyimbi says:

    Please crush his testicles, he will reveal those people who killed Njauju.

  21. Chifwede says:

    ofcourse Naphiyo knows the killers. They are from Intelligence department. The same people torched MEC warehouse in LL. The same guys broke into the residency of a German official investigating DPP cashgate. These are state sponsored crimes.

    The arrest of Naphiyo is infact a move to gag him from talking

  22. Truck says:

    PADZIKO LAPANSI PALIBE CHINSINSI PANO MWAONA AYAMBA A POLICE KUWULULA WOKHA POPANGA OWAFUNSA THAT MEANS THE POLICE ARE INVOLVE VERY BAD EH FIGHTING FOR GOVERNMENT MONEY ESHII!

  23. Bufalo Soldier says:

    Oh!oh! So an innocent and true story has been twisted again? Why are we Malawians like this? Now the police officers want to protect their fellow officer and they bring us a better sounding version of the story cholinga chawo is kuti this guy should be given bail. This is another corruption. You think that we are very blind to see these things? Very very sad indeed.

  25. Sapitwa says:

    Malawi Police can not successfully prosecute complicated cases such as this. There are so many missing requirements:
    Expertise
    Scientific tools like computers a relevant softwares
    Lack data base for individuals profiles including finger prints
    Lack of funds to investigate.
    This Naphiyo guy should not have been arrested based on a hearsay. This hearsay should have been the base to interrogate him and after successful gathering of evidence pointing on him that would lead to successful prosecution, then they could have arrested him and charge him before the 48 hours. His arrest are just signs of panic. We are yet to see another cold murder case file.

  30. Ojambula says:

    So if two pipo have been arrested including the police officer who already knows the killers, why the delay? I thot these pipo can give detalis and persons who did the evil act. What are you waiting for you corrupt police officers? Or else you are afraid bkoz they are pipo that were sent by top DPP officials to kill our Njauju eti? Nde ali pa khate mukulephera kumupha khoswe? Mulungu akuona ndipo mukapsa ndiiiiiithu!

  36. Why is the cop not charged? Is the arrest not to do with hiding information the Cop was reaveling?

    . . . This man may have the information. Coz as a drunk he, had the liberty to talk about so many stories like his sex escapades, frustrations or motivations at work, his family e.t.c. Now out of all these issues and stories, why did he choose to share his knowledge of Njauju’s assailants? He knows something!
    . . . Also, although a person’s medulla oblongata may lose coordination of speech n balance on beer, the cerebrum’s power is always intact. Thus, you may wish to squeeze his balls till out, comes more information.

    But if it was the one too many speaking in the bottles he was drinking, sqeeze his balls even harder to teach him a lesson on the type of jokes for imbibers; coz this issue is so serious that it needs not be joked about. Otherwise . . .

    Nonetheless, keep it up! It shows you are doing something, by leaving no stone unturned.
