Malawi Police say investigations into the murder of a senior official at the graft busting body, the Anti-Corruption Bureau, Issa Njaunju is progressing well and asked people to be patient as the matter will get to logical conclusion.
Deputy police spokesman Nicholas Gondwa said one of the suspects was already netted by police and appeared in court as required by law.
“The police are still hunting for the remaining suspects. We are using many methods and strategies to net the suspects and we will arrest the remaining suspects,” said Gondwa.
His comment follows intense criticism from the opposition benches in parliament who are asking why the government is taking long to arrest killers of Njauju who was a senior officer at the ACB.
Leader of opposition Lazarus Chakwera and some opposition legislators want the government to explain how far the police have gone with the investigations into the death of Njauju who was killed this year and his car was found burnt to ashes near Kamuzu Palace in Lilongwe.
But Gondwa said police investigations cannot be revealed prematurely as this can jeopardise the investigations.
People suspect Njauju was murdered by crooked people in a bid to cover up their corrupt practices.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
