Unknown people in Blantyre have abducted a five-year-old child of Asian extract and are demanding ransom from his parents.

The abducted child

Leader of community policing in Mpingwe, Salim Sidik,  said the driver dropped the boy at the residence of his aunt and within a few a minutes the abductors took the boy from the fenced residence and sped away.

“Soon after they took him, they called the parents demanding money. They have threatened to take the child outside the country,” said Sidik.

Police spokesperson for the south Ramsey Mushani has confirmed that the police have received the report of the abduction of the boy and said they are investigating the matter.

The father, Mr Zubeda runs a string of businesses in Blantyre and Lilongwe.

Abductions are rare in Malawi.

This is new chase all foreigners, I heard one wanted to plant bomb in Malawi. What are we keeping Somalians, Rwandese or Burundi Nigerians. Somalis caused trouble in Kenya, M23 came from Rwanda. Malawi wake up.

Once caught give them death penalty. We don’t want this kind of Malawi. We are poor but peace loving people

This is not new in Nigeria or West Africa. The father to one of the Chelsea professional player was kidnaped in Nigeria knowing that the son earns good money in oversea. We must expect this in Malawi since we opened our borders to Nigerians. Next time please kidnap Peter wa Muthalika and Chaponda as well. They have a lot of money.

Very strange. Could be a family issue.

How did the abductors know contacts of the parents? It seems to be planned deal. The driver knows the deal in my perception.

But this is small case, they will be caught. Airtel or TNM have full details of their customers.

Not good for our country of Malawi. Please let all of us help this family in finding their loved one. Malawi must unite. Let us all come together regardless of how we feel about our other people. We should never tolerate this kind of crime. We will all suffer if this continues. Nobody will come to this poor, but beautiful country should this go unpunished and stopped.

In fact you don’t have any brains at all. I may not be a SUPPORTER of CHILIMA but I have no respect for you.
