Malawi coach attacked in own home by robbers 

Malawi national football team head coach Young Chimodzi’s residence was invaded by robbers barely three months after raiding the residence of high profile figures such as Vice President of the Republic of Malawi Saulos Chilima and Minister of Energy and Mining Atupule Muluzi.

Chimodzi: Living in fear

The Malawi head coach onfirmed that he reported the issue to Lilongwe Police Station.

Chimodzi, who is a successful businessman, said 15 robbers invaded his residence after drilling through his brickfence but they did not harm his family and steal anything after they failed to penetrate the house.

“It was a terrible night for me and my family as a group of 15 robbers  invaded my compound but I thank God that they did not harm us and they also left without taking anything because they did not have access into my house,” Chimodzi said.

He said the incident has left him living in fear for his life.

“I don’t know what the thugs were looking for at my compound. I am living in fear in fear but let’s put everything in the hands of God,” said the soft-spoken coach.

Lilongwe Police spokesperson Kingsley Dandaula confirmed the development.

“He reported the matter to the Police and we rushed to the scene but the robbers had already gone. We have intensified security in some areas including Area 3 and 9 because robbers were targeting these areas,” Dandaula said.

Recently robbers also raided the house of Football Association of Malawi (FAM) Executive Member James Mwenda and went away with assorted households items.

The development comes a month it was revealed that the coach would be pocketing K1.7 million in salary in the new contract as the Flames head coach.

    let me tip our police, check the vehicle DZ4223 hilux surf black. This is a suspected gang leader with guns, and seems to operate from a hotel around biwi area with gangs in most townships in LL. that is the gang that robbed and murdered a Zimbabwean woman some months ago in area 24 (the woman happened to be tenant to the gang leader).

    Thanks you are safe. These thugs must be caught and severely punished. One puzzle though, how did you Manage to count them? Got perimeter cctv?

  21. ujeni says:

    15 robbers?, how can 15 people agree on one thing? This should be easy for police to trace them and catch them, a friend or relation of one of the 15 robbers surely knows something. Do we have Police CID’s in Malawi? if so then they dont know their job or they just sit doing nothing. This group of robbers must have come from nearby slums, how can 15 robbers travel, in a mini bus, cars, by foot? Thats where our stupid police should start from

    Inde umphawi wachuluka koma kwinaku ndi chibadwa. A Police achepedwa zipangizo, bwezi adzingodziphuritsa zimbalangondozi!

  24. zilipo says:

    The authorities need to train snipers and randomly position them in places that Are likely to be targets for night robbers especially in the cities. If these snipers can successfully stop some robbers in action, it would send a strong warning to the rest. The key is setting it up so robbers can’t guess. Citizens who work so hard to raise their families should never live in perpetual fear for their lives like this. It’s time to start teaching these robbers a lesson.

    Where and how can I get a licensed gun? I believe its time I owned one, and will shoot to kill!

    1. Namarokoro says:

      @thepatriot, go to police. There are forms there. Fill them in. Justify why u wanna ve a riffle-obviously, low security levels. Then u get the license and look for a gun to purchase. Simples! Komano vuto akuba amakupeza uli mtulo…they use juju amwene.

  33. Namalila says:

    These burglars once caught must be castrated and their parts muted in public to teach a lesson to those that would be other offenders in planning.
