Gondwa: Confirmed the Mob justice

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

    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.

    No! No! No! police is doing a good job, but the Judiciary is the most corrupt in this country. When a person is released by courts villagers blame the police. Common Malawians need to know that all these useless bails are given by the courts. Imagine the way bail was given to Kaka after killing a yang man at manja. Common Malawians will soon start administering mob justice to the Magistrates and judges. These guys think they are untouchable. Days are coming in Mw when judges and magistrates will be killed for their impartiality. Osati kumapanga ma judgement a usilu ndikumapezekanso townimu akunjoya. These judges and magistrates chiderera too much.

  21. Phwisa says:

    The police should commend the villagers for assisting them.

  22. Mkaidi pa Maula Camp says:

    poor administration of justice by our police and our courts zikuthandizira kuti mob justice ipite patsogolo. Lexten Kachama, our IG, plz do something about this. tidakaphatu anthu oterewa.

    Its because no security in the country tizilanga tokha basi MOB JUSTICE woyeeeeeee

  25. Olo says:

    Wow!!! I don’t trust the police anymore. If the villagers can storm a police unit and kill the suspect in full view of police officers and no any arrests have been made. What’s the reason of having police if they can’t even protect one person from danger???

  26. Jahan says:

    That’s what happens when people lose trust in the police who are more interested in serving their political masters than doing their job!

  27. Tengupenya says:

    The lynching of suspects of crime has reached proportions which means that the citizens believe that the state has failed to respond to the public expectations for security management and the administration of criminal justice. Heads must roll here.

  28. beje says:

    This is very interesting . . .

    Is it fair for a lion to just come from nowhere and snatch away and eat a kill by hyenas? Noo!
    . . . Let it be put on record that if the police want to take robbers to court, they (police) should do the hunting of the robbers in our localities. Otherwise, if the hunting and catching of the robbers is done by the commoners, common justice will be meted out. Simple!
    ……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………
    . . . Nanga you go to rob a person and you also kill him/her? The only wrong he/she’s done you, nkuchita bwino mmoyo basi? Mxiiiiiiiiii!! Akuba inu siinu anthu ofunika padziko pano iai!
    . . . What the people of Dedza have done, is the best thing that can happen to such an uncivilised robber; because the best thing that can happen to such a robber, is the worst thing; and the people of Dedza have done just that. Kudos!
    …………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..
    . . . Even interesting is the unity and the courage the people of Dedza have shown to go into police cell and mete out the deserving justice on this foolish robber! This is good news!
    . . . Truth is, even if this idiotic robber was to be taken to court and sentended to 30 years in jail; the punishment would never be any equal (in whatever measure) to the loss of life of the innocent soul.

    . . . I wish I had account numbers for these people. I would have gladly transfered K50,000 to each one of them, including the police officers who cooperated well; by not even firing a warning shot to disperse them.
    . . . A a this is very nice and I have never been this happy since the begining of this year! Am very happy! I really, am.

    That’s what happens when a country has a judicial system that seems more sympathetic with criminals than justice. People lose trust in justice system.
