Witchcraft plane crash’ causes commotion in Kasungu

Kasungu Police Station and Gundani in Kasungu District, on Monday became centres of attraction on Monday as hundreds of people flocked to the places to see an alleged witchcraft plane.

The ‘plane’ is alleged to have ‘crashed’ in Gundani area, in front of a house of one Liness Kaulungo.

According to people close to the house, interviewed by Malawi News Agency (Mana), the object was discovered in the early hours of Monday after Kaulungo went out to answer the call of nature.

The black object, which resembles a small airplane, attracted hundreds of people as the news of its crash spread like wild fire to surrounding areas of Chitete, Chiteyeye and as far as Juma and Kasalika.

Police later went to the scene and took the object to Kasungu Police Station.

People’s attention then shifted to the police station where they gathered to see the ‘plane’.

The crowd outside the station was so huge, it blocked the busy road which vehicles going up north normally use.

The country’s laws do not recognise the existence of witchcraft and police spokesperson Edwin Kaunda said they took the object away for safety reasons.

He said: “We observed that the object was creating commotion in the area, so we took it away to prevent further chaos.”

Kaunda said the object is being kept at the police station, but did not say what action will be taken next.

The incident ignited debate on witchcraft in the country, with some people saying the plane was evidence enough that witchcraft exists while others were of the view that it is difficult to tell from the object itself.

    Did you expect an Airbus A380 to fall on this house? Witchcraft exist because this is a way that the devil manipulate into sin most of the poor and backward minds of the world. Others are saying kuti ndi chidole, can a normal person make such a hideous and awful craft for a kid to play with? He will run away at its sight.

    Witchcraft exists the world over: in the Americas, Asia, Europe, Australia, Oceania and its real hub Africa. Don’t’ be deceived that kwa azungu kulibe ufiti. Ufiti ulipo ndithu kumeneko that is why he came up with a classification of them; females he called witches and males he called wizards. The Holy Book “the Bible” recognises the existence and practice of witchcraft. Paul concludes in Galatians 5:20 that all who practice all sorts of sins including witchcraft will not inherit the kingdom of God.

    So how many people have died?It seems they didn’t get permission when they were flying over the air space of the owner of the house.Tell Mr Nthidwa of humanist organisation to collect it and put it in his office.

    kkkkk. I believe this is utter foolishness! Some mad person just threw that object there and you claim it is a plane. FOOLS achewa, gule basi

  19. jimbo says:

    Such widespread belief in witchcraft is a clear indication of the poor standard of education in Malawi. Anyone with a grasp of science and the laws of nature will not give a moment’s thought to witchcraft, which has no place in 21st century thinking. Instead of jumping to witchcraft as an explanation for something unusual, people should be using their knowledge and intelligence to seek an explanation. Incidentally I know a certain Malawian with a Phd who still believes in witchcraft! So much for his intelligence and the quality of his education.

  27. Prof.ADDIE says:

    THE PROBLEM HEREIN IS THE LAWS OF THE COUNTRY.THE TRUTH BEHIND IT IS THAT WITCHCRAFT IS THERE 100% BUT THE GOVERNMENT IS ON PROMOTION FOR MALAWIANS TO AMPLE CHANCE TO KILL ONE ANOTHER AND THE GOVERNMENT GETS COMMISSION. THE LAWS OF MALAWI MUST BE REVISED AND MPs PARLIAMENTIANS MUST ENDORSE IT AND THEREBY GAZETTED AND THIS NONSENSE WILL BE REDUCED.CATCH A THIEF TO CATCH A THIEF.I DONT BUY THE IDEA BY THE LAWS OF POOR MALAWI THAT THERE IS NO WITCHCRAFT THAT IS TOO FOOLISH.IN ANY COUNTRY IN THE WORLD THERE IS WITCHCRAFT PERIOD.

    Ufiti unalipo ngakhale nthawi ya Moses ku Egypt. Mayiko ambiri ku Africa, Europe ndi Asia akupangabe dza ufuti. Mchimwene wanga anali mfiti yovuta kwambiri and thats a true living example. Kuti adzisiya anachita kukhala naye pansi makolo

  29. redeemed says:

    We can be all naive as we want dismissing the existing of with crafts and some do so to cover up their evil tendencies. I for one do believe that they do exist even amongst white community. I mean even the holly bible does acknowledge, as a matter of fact you can be too civilized to believe in the existing of witch craft, probably because you’ve never been exposed or victimised by this evil practices but technically its plain stupidity.

  30. mphwache wa bingu says:

    Malawians please wake up. This is just a toy and made by kids who threw it at the poor woman’s premises. No news here.

  39. Does witch craft really exist or is it just another over gloried myth meant to hide some dubious acts of people with divers intentions in their attempt to achieve their ends?
    I really want to know, seriously- as this may help a lot of people who are suffering unsuspectingly.
    Suppose it is real, what methods does those in authority follow to prove and amend the damages inccured by the curlpits ? Is there a law that tries it? Who does one contact if he is being tourtured by the said witches?
    Surely witchcraft is not a new story in our country for people to wonder at it ,if it`s for real, by now there must be a way of stopping these said witches if they are for real, other wise its just an over looked persecution of innocent victims, which is a sorry state of things in this modern democracy.

    police took that object for safety reasons, safety for who? in the report we havent seen names linked to th plane, were there casualties after th crash,any suspects who were on board?

  43. jijo says:

    Malawians and there nonsense! Wake up guys. Why waste time with stupid things like these! At least well informed people know that a plane does not look like this when it has fallen from the sky!!!!!

  44. Kadakwiza says:

    Any casualties? This story is incomplete. Where are the people who were in that plane?

  45. Mtondoli Jonazi says:

    Kutsalira a Malawi, sitingatukuke choncho. The time the people spent gathering around the place kukawona kachidole ka nsalu would have been better put to good use! I suppose, maybe, most of them perhaps do not have anything worthwhile to do.

    At the end of the day, we all do have our own beliefs or non-beliefs. I only hope someone does not get lynched on suspicion of being the owner. Interestingly people have failed to be-witch Thindwa as he openly challenged the ones who say ndi mfiti-za-mfiti.

    I know, people have said that Thindwa cannot be bewitched because iyeyo ndi mfiti nayenso – but trust me, there is no one who can do it simply because they have no proof that witchcraft exists.

    Najumphapo – I have a mission to accomplish on this earth, and that is to be the best I can be in what I do and do things that will touch other people. This witchcraft stuff, not really my cup of tea!!!!

  56. Mugonapamhanya says:

    I personally believe that witchcraft exists, however I don’t see any evidence here supporting the same. Anybody can make this object inorder to play with the superstitious minds of Malawians. The whole thing sounds and looks ridiculous.

  57. Oliver Twist says:

    Why stick to old colonial laws? Witchcraft exists, come on Africans, don’t behave like we are in Europe. Take the example of Nigeria, witches are recognised & have meetings advertised on TV.
