The thugs attacked the house  in the wee hours of Friday, June 3 2016 and badly wounded Reverend Khuzeya and one of his security guards.

According to Nyasa Times sources, who rushed the victims to the hospital, the criminals badly stabbed the Reverend and his guard on the head with sharp objects.

Meanwhile, the whereabouts of other watchmen are not known, but they largely believed to have connived with the thugs.

They have stolen travelling bags containing clothes, ATM cards, certificates and clergy robes or pulpit gowns

There was no immediate comment from the Police while Blantyre Synod Moderator Robson Chimkwezule, the Synod’s Spiritual Father, confirmed the incident, but declined to talk more about the incident and referred this reporter to his General Secretary Reverend Alex Maulana.

Effort to talk to Rev. Maulana equally proved futile.

This incident come barely few days after unknown thugs killed former Malawi Broadcasting Corporation (MBC) television producer Dexter Kanike.

The 48-year old Kanike was killed by armed robbers at his residence in Chilimba Township, Blantyre.

The thugs broke into Kanike’s house in the wee hours of Wednesday (June 1st) and stole laptop and cameras before stabbing him with unknown object.

In another development, Police in Ndirande, Blantyre are keeping in custody 37 year- old Francis Khoza after he was found with three 90kgs bags of Indian Hemp.

Khoza was arrested on Thursday, June 2 and the bags were found in his car registration number KU 1731.

The law enforcers had received a tip that Khoza was loading bags of Indian hemp in at Makata in the Township ready for transportation.

The law enforcers rushed to the scene and upon seeing the officers, he started his vehicle and cruised away.

“But he did not go far as the officers managed to stop him and arrest him. Currently the drug is expected to be taken to Bvumbwe Research Station for examination and the suspect will be taken to court as soon as as the tests are out,” said Sergeant Andrew Mayawo, Blantyre Police Deputy Publicist.

    People were saying Amayi JB brought insecurity in the country. Pano mukuti bwa? When the economy is slumping, you should expect more stealing, killing, selling chamba, trading albino bones, etc. This DPP govt is making Malawi a nasty place – DPP should stop being pompous and get back to the donors to convince them that theft of public funds can stop in Malawi. Unfortunately DPP cannot do this because they’re the kingpin and masterminder of cashgate.

  6. Mbusa wa Nkhoma Synod says:
