Malawi army sends soldiers to violence hot spot Kasungu

Malawi Defence Force (MDF) has sent dozens of soldiers to Kasungu to help quell violence which erupted in two areas on Tuesday.

Soldiers and armored vehicles deployed 

MDF trucks full of soldiers were sent to the district following the burning down of a police unit and road block at Nkhamenya trading centre.

Irate people also burnt down three vehicles in protest against police decision to release a notorious habitual suspected thief who has been terrorizing the area.

Helpless police officers fled the police unit and road block as they were overpowered by the angry mob.

At Mtambala village, violence erupted when a dog owned by a Burundian killed a five-year-old child.

People vented their anger by destroying and looting shops owned by Burundians in some areas.

Peace and calm has returned in the district following the deployment of the soldiers.

The police is full of untrained DPP cadets that’s the reason people have lost trust with the police ,they always see them as DPP uniformed security officers.

I feel sorry of the police. Why Is it that most of the times they are not strong enough to manage situations like this?. The thing that they know most is to teagas Kkkkkk I think this is the only thing that they were trained . If they don’t teargas then it’s not enough to be a police 👮 I salute the mdf for the well job done with respect

I am made to understand that due human rights issues police are not allowed life bullets in riot control as such they are easily defeated with stones
