First Merchant Bank (FMB) has offered to support family of late Sergeant Patrick Mvula, a Malawi Police Officer who was killed during a robbery at the bank last year on December 23 last year.
Commissioner of Police for Southern Region George Kainja confirmed that the bank has already given K800,000 to the family.
The Bank has also committed to educate all of his three children until they finish secondary education.
“After being touched by the death of our Police FMB has consoled the bereaved family particularly to the deceased wife where they have made a contribution of K800,000 to assist the family as they grieve over the loss of their bread winner ,” Kainja said.
The Commissioner said Malawi Police Service was grateful to FMB’s move to support the Mvula’s family without being asked to do.
“We are pleased because this just shows that they value humanity,” he said.
During the robbery in which Mvula was shot dead robbers bolted with cash in excess of K90 million.
The Police are yet to recover the money but some people including a husband to senior Police Officer were arrested in connection with the robbery.
