Malawi cop Naphiyo nabbed over Njauju killing

Malawi police have confirmed the arrest of a cop who works in Criminal Investigation Department (CID) in connection with the murder of Anti Corruption Bureau (ACB) Director of Corporate Affairs Issa Njauju.

Gondwa: Conform the arrest

Gondwa: We have arrested one of ouw own

National Police Spokesperson Nicholas Gondwa confirmed the arrest of 43 year old Christopher Naphiyo.

However, Gondwa refused to give more details on the arrest, saying investigations are still going on therefore making details public would jeopardise the investigations

Naphiyo, a police criminal investigator at police headquarters in Lilongwe is the second person to be arrested after another suspect who was picked and charged with murder after he was found with Njaujus mobile phone.

Njauju was murdered on 2 July this year by unknown assailants and his body was dumped around City Centre in Lilongwe on July 4, triggering fear among family members and his colleagues.

Gondwa said Naphiyo is remanded at Maula prison in Lilongwe.

Zanga Phee!

Allah has responded to prayers both Muslims and Christians.The guy died Innocent.There is time for everything.No doubt Government officials are part and parcel on this scenario let us wait and see.See my name


Don’t play ndi asilamu. What happened for Naphiyo to be arrested? It is not through investigations, no. I hear the guy started hallucinating and saying it in public. The govt feared awayalutsa due to public speaking and they decided to keep him away from public, behind bars!
