Criminals gun down one man in Lilongwe

Dickson Khofi aged 39, from Khokwasambo Village in Traditional Authority (TA) Mazengera in Lilongwe was on Tuesday night shot dead by unknown criminals as he tried to aid his neighbour from thieves who had attacked the neighbour’s house at Landani village, TA Tsabango in Lilongwe.

Lilongwe Police Station Public Relations Officer (PRO) Inspector Kingsley Dandaula said the deceased was at around 11.00  in the night responding to a whistle sound he heard that was coming from the house of his neighbour identified as Prince Kumbuyo Nkhoma, an IT manager at Get Bucks in Lilongwe.

“Khofi was on his way to find out what was happening after hearing the sound of the whistle that had been blown. Unfortunately, he was shot on the chest by the unknown criminals who had already broken into Nkhoma’s house and he died on the spot,” said Dandaula.

The spokesperson disclosed that the criminals had stolen an Hp lap-top, 4 cell phones and K58, 000 cash.

Dandaula said the matter was reported to Kawale Police by the wife to the deceased Esnart Mlauzi Khofi aged 25, from Njobvu Village in the same area which led the Police to immediately visit the scene.

“Upon visiting the scene, the Kawale Police found the pellets on the scene of the incident and it seems the criminals had used a shotgun,” said Dandaula.

Postmortem conducted at Kamuzu Central Hospital revealed that death was due to hypovolemia (blood loss) caused by the gunshot wounds and meanwhile investigations are underway to arrest the culprits and to recover the stolen items.

  13. ndaona says:

    dziko ndi lokondeladi sometimes. Mphwiyo wakuba ndalama za a malawi onse sanafe ndi 3 bullets koma uyu wachifundo kwa neba wake just a bullet. This world!

  14. Worried Citizen says:

    It seems guns are all over Malawi these days and ordinary people are no longer safe.The first question to be asked is this.Where do these people source all these deadly guns?Who trains them to shoot?Our lives are in great danger because you never know who is next.Can the police try to search all these cars during night time who seems travel aimlessly in many locations or even during day some times.Security is in shambles these days.What has gone long with Malawi?The govt needs to boost up security for its citizen otherwise people are scared for their dear lives.

    What surprise me is that they were 20 thieves and they stole K58,000. This means they shared less than K3000 each!

  55. Ndudu Dausi says:

    Now with sad stories like these almost everyday, is it still appropriate to continue clapping hands for APM, when he chooses not to address insecurity in the country but rather to commemorate his arrest?

    I think this marijuana puffing president must be forced out. We cannot continue loosing our brothers and sisters as if there is no president and his 20 member ministers.

  56. PRECIOUS BZ says:

    Sorry my brother, insecured Malawians we are mawa ndife

  57. okhudzidwa says:

    Nufn that happens*wen they say we are investigating…nde… osamangonena kuti investigations are underway* R*I*P* where is Malawi going? Shud we stil say warm heart of africa* only God knows

  58. Fathara says:

    But why despite all the cries on insecurity peter cannot command the army to deal with the situation. It is common knowledge that the situation is out of hand and the police have frankly speaking failed to deal with it. Does it have to take robbers to shoot your wife or your daughter for you to appreciate how grave the situation is. It’s really scaring

  59. tsotsi says:

    malawi on fire now…….i cry for ma mother nyasa

  60. Talibo West says:
