Hospital discharges UTM office arson attack children: No ‘home’ to return to

Three children whose both parents and a brother died in Lilongwe due to arson attack on their house which was petrol bombed, have been discharged from hospital to face new reality of life of orphan hood and destitution.

The three children pose with well-wishers after being discharged

The three children were discharged on Monday from Kamuzu Central Hospital where they were admitted to since May 5 when their house was petrol bombed by unknown assailants in Area 24.

Their father died last week whilst their mother and brother died a week earlier due to suffocation and burns they suffured.

No arrests have been effected so far and the acting police Inspector General Duncan Mwapasa said the police are still investigating the matter.

Opposition parties and rights activists claim the ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) cadets were responsible because they wanted to bomb a UTM office which was adjacent to the house which was erroneously targeted.

However, the DPP secretary general Grezelder Jeffrey said the man in the house might have been trading in petroleum products which accidentally caught fire.

As a human being I feel very sorry for the Family more especially the Children left behind by the deceased parents, as a Nation we need to do something for the Children, people can contribute if an Account can be opened for them and also Guardians must be Identified. One disappointing thing is, this Accident has been highly politicised by politicians, to gain Mileage over the other. From an independent point of view, the fire was more like an Accident than a fire bomb, but in the absence of a Police investigations, I am not an expert . I totally… Read more »

I am shocked that a person of WA Jeffrey standing can trivialize the horrible incident involving the family by accusing it of self inflicted death caused by fuel stored in the building. Why is she evading the barricading of the building and burning tyres? Ordinarily we would not accuse DPP, however, an accident of this magnitude just like the raping of the women at Msundwe, Mbwatalika, and Mpingu, would automatically attract the attention of the head of state. The fact that he remained silent would lead most people rightly or wrongly conclude DPP/APM complicity. Some people were suspicious with the… Read more »

Inside job by UTM and MCP. Chilima and Chakwera wanted to implicate government. They are the ones who have been violent since last year including killing a police office.

Very unfortunate though this is not the only first disheartening incident over the ‘ OSAOPA’ ten months period in which the policeman was butchered by msundwe yufi. He and many others lost their lives living their children distitute like these little children. May God have mercy on all the orphans.

People always conclude things without conrete evidence. This could have been mcp people or even utm itself. Why doesn’t some people do some investigations? Let’s not conclude things based on our political leanings. Ler someone come with the facts of the case

No comment from APM and or the DPP government to help those poor kids, just like he / they did not comment of the msundwe women who were raped by the DPP cadets masquerading as police officers……

Can someone please start a fund raising Facebook page for these kids, am preparing to donate enough to see them through the rest of this year, food and accommodation wise…….thank you.

Funding can be done but let us know who will look after the children since they are still very young. Maybe one of the relative could look after them.
