    Enough is enough the police has let us down because these issues of murder are becoming the older of the day. I think mob justice should take its course if we are to have a secure nation.

  13. Wapa Liwonde says:

    The Police in Malawi are not very sophiscated enough to handle such macabre cases.Solving such crimes needs very well equipped and modernised police otherwise these thugs will keep on gouging peoples eyes for their various Mutis(Mankhwala).Ndimavuto a zachuma pa Malawi some people r ready to commit such horrible crimes as quick way to get rich.Its an area where people believes much in getting rich thru such things.Its time the Dna system was incorporated in our investigative system.The archaic police system will not match with the modern trends of these merciless murderers looking for a quick buck.These murderers shud never see a daylight in our lifetime.They all need to rot in jails and die a slow painful death.They r not human beings but mere animals.

  15. Mapuyamurupare says:

    I think the IG of Police is sleeping.
    How can he allocate so many police men to traffic section.
    more than CID. Plain dressed police men are need to deal with
    thugs / criminals. Not too many officers along the roads only
    to be there for corrupt practices with mini bus drivers and other road users.

    For Example in Blantyre, from Midima Court round-about to Limbe market you find about
    four to five teams of traffic police officers of about four to six each. Other teams are just
    standing on the road side waiting to receive cash from corrupt minibus drivers who pretty well know that their vehicles have overloaded / exceeded capacity.

    Why not sending some Police officers for patrols deep in townships and villages just to increase visibility of the law enforcers in our communities.

    Jack up Mr IG of the Malawi Police.

  23. masoapatali says:

    The problem is almost every policeman is trying his best to be a traffic police officer to steal from motorists instead of ensuring security in the neighborhoods. Angodzadzana mmisewu kubera anthu basi. When they are at their offices in the police stations, it is all about corruption. In Malawi the worst thieves and thugs are policemen and am not surprised by this level of insecurity

Wauponda Atupele is shit too we have now known his true colors. He is Birimankhwe womangosanduka and he can NEVER rule Malawi, msana wake.

    Balaka has 0.01% of theft and robbery and nothing more other than brutality murderers and rapists. Check and verify in radioswald ,electronic and print media and u can agree. They are filthy people

  43. Mbanangwa says:

    What do we make out of all this? Economy has hit hard Malawians and those who go to witch finders to decide their fortune, they are cheated with rituals to help them get rich quickly. However, is that a good way to make somebody depart from this life so untimely? I cry my beloved country! This poor lady did not deserve this, oooooh, not at all. Ku Balaka mwatani? Nkhani zonyasa chonchi chiyambirenicho! Chikhala kuti ndi ku Mpoto bwenzi pano tikuti ATUMBUKA.

  44. saulosi Chilima says:

    Very bad!!! Somebody said it that Peter is a satanist and ushering him into power will make Malawians cry day and night. Every satast becomes extremely happy when he sees blood shed. At the place I thought this guy was just kidding but now am convinced beyond reasonable doubt that Peter is a blood sucker (vampire). Malawians have complained several times about security lapse in the country but the has always kept his mouth plastered. My question is if the president fails to address security issues like these who then will help us? God have mercy.

    I don’t believe is this happening in Northern Malawi? What are we looking for? Check situations when did this happen and who was the President. Much is again happening now in days unlike the past two years. CHECK.
    May the GOOD LORD assist us to desist from such actions as a nation.

  61. Chazama says:

    Does this government have any leader? Killing has become the order of the day. Totally nooooo security. Its such a government that people can do whatever they want without fearing law, yet the law enforcers are there and the commander in chief of the law is there. Anthu aziphana ngati nkhuku, kuwotchedwa ndi moto ngati kanyenya. People are testing your strength mr.big man. wake up!!!!!!
    We thot as a man you will do better than a woman but alas! Malawi is gone, please wake up!!!!!!!!!!!!

    ‘Cry Our Beloved Country’ Let us all join hands in fighting this security lapse. We the community have a role to play….we stay with these criminals. Let us report suspicious people to Police. The Police…please be professional. And let the country know your challenges so together we can find solutions to solve this problem.

    boma likulephera ntchitotu apa, before anything else every government must provide security for its people and their property. Koma daily nkhani zake zomwezi, ngati akumabeledwa ma VP ndi ma ministers how are ordinary citizens like us supposed to feel safe!

  77. ilera says:

    At this moment I would say the government is misplacing priorities. The lapse of security is a concern to the nation and government should not sit idle while innocent people are being killed and their property stolen. This is the time for Peter to act decisively on this if the nation is to move ahead. This disturbance will not help us concentrate on mapping the path to restoring our economy.

  82. Mr Missing says:

    Ntchito za manja a Muthalika zikumuchitila umboni. There is nothing to write home about Loti Dzonzi except lapse of security in malawi. This man is just a waste of time and resources.

  83. Angel of Doom says:

    It does not take a genius to know that such barbaric acts have nothing to do with lapse in security.

    Acts like these happen everywhere, these are acts of depraved individuals, they do not become depraved because they suddenly realise there is a lapse of security.

    Do you want to tell this country that a lapse of security causes people to kill each other? if that is the case why does this not happen in full view of everyone, why is it done in the dark?

    I will tell you why it is done in the dark, this is because there are dark forces at work, nothing to do with lapse of security. Even if everybody in the country agreed to lookout, people will still be killed. The police can not be expected to guard villages, but rather to try their best to apprehend the perpetrators, but unless one is a fool or and idiot would one not realize that in a country like Malawi, that can only happen if they have tip offs.

    Do Malawians tip off the police? that is a question that each one can answer for themselves.

    Yes people will do things that they believe they can get away with, but murder?

  84. matchaya says:

    why all this God push the world so that we can know you God. what are the government saying in all these. how many people within a week, are these chickens or people pls police try to do something we are tired of this life style.
