Police spokesman Nicholas Gondwa confirmed the incident at Kabwaza police unit in Dedza.

“The villagers went to the unit around five in the morning and forced their way into the cell where they took out the suspect,” said Gondwa.

He said the suspect is said to have killed one of villagers in a robbery attempt.

No one has been arrested so far in connection with the killing of the suspect.

In Blantyre, police have confirmed the killing of two suspects in mob justice in Chinyonga.

Police spokesman for the south James Kadadzera said the two suspects were suspected of terrorising Chinyonga Township and were caught by those who sell flowers in the area.

Kadadzadzera said residents in the Township administered mob justice on the two suspects instead of handing them over to police.

If that’s the case then lets all go and break into the state house. Drag muthalika out and put some tires around his neck. He is the bigest thief of all thieves in this ciuntry. Mob justice is befitting gor this corrupt rotten clueless mchona


What a commendable job. Mukaphaso wapolisi mumodzi apitile limodzi

brave nyanyaluwa

this sounds fishy. I think the villagers know that may be other police officers ‘work’ together with these criminals. how long did he stay at the unit? Transfer all the police officers to other areas.


That’s only way to eliminate people who do not deserves peace , respect and love in a community. Why you have to worry about people who makes you tears?


You people of Dedza deserve a part on your back. You have done a good job. Let unite and eliminate these thugs one by one. We should not trust our police because they connive with these animals to terrorize people and share the cash and other stolen items. That’s why they give very stupid bails using archaic laws.
