The incident happened in Soza village in the district, police have confirmed.

Mulanje police Public Relations Officer, Gresham Ngwira told Nyasa Times, the victim was torched to death after being caught stealing from one of the houses in Soza village.

On Thursday night the deceased broke into a certain house and stole a cellphone and a blanket,” said Ngwira. ”He was however caught by community members”.

Ngwira said while on the way to Muloza police station, irate people set the accused on fire and watched him writhing to death.

Law-enforcers visited the scene of the incident on Friday morning where they found the body of the victim.

”His relatives ordered the body to be buried immediately”.

Master hailed from Soza village, T/A Njema in the district.

Meanwhile, police have warned the general public to refrain from taking the law into their own hands, as that is an offence.

”It is only police who are responsible for investigating and prosecuting those suspected to have broken any law,” added Ngwira.

Osamaotcha lone thief. Ofunika kuitchedwa ndi aja amabwera chigulu aja. Those ones din’t fear anybody and they kill guards and sometimes home owners. Samaopa kuthyola zitseko nkugwilira ana ndi mahi awo. Oba yekha ndiwamantha ndipo safuna anthu anve pomwe chigulu chimafuna mudzuke kumene kuti chikuzunzeni bwino. I wait for the day mbava 5 or 6 zobwera pachigulu cha 14 zitagwidwa nkuotchedwa mwina umbanda otereu ungachepe. They know no one can dare come out of their house to assist neighbours when attacked by 17 panga wielding thugs

We’re all a bunch of hypocrites, we’re the same as that criminal who was murdered. Who gives us the right to kill and then claim to be religious, why do we even bother to go to church? Police do not even investigate these so called mob justice, why? Yes it is wrong to steal, I have been robbed a couple of times myself but I can never wish death on anybody, not because I’m holy, but because it is immoral and unlawful.
