Malawi national football team head coach Young Chimodzi’s residence was invaded by robbers barely three months after raiding the residence of high profile figures such as Vice President of the Republic of Malawi Saulos Chilima and Minister of Energy and Mining Atupule Muluzi.
The Malawi head coach onfirmed that he reported the issue to Lilongwe Police Station.
Chimodzi, who is a successful businessman, said 15 robbers invaded his residence after drilling through his brickfence but they did not harm his family and steal anything after they failed to penetrate the house.
“It was a terrible night for me and my family as a group of 15 robbers invaded my compound but I thank God that they did not harm us and they also left without taking anything because they did not have access into my house,” Chimodzi said.
He said the incident has left him living in fear for his life.
“I don’t know what the thugs were looking for at my compound. I am living in fear in fear but let’s put everything in the hands of God,” said the soft-spoken coach.
Lilongwe Police spokesperson Kingsley Dandaula confirmed the development.
“He reported the matter to the Police and we rushed to the scene but the robbers had already gone. We have intensified security in some areas including Area 3 and 9 because robbers were targeting these areas,” Dandaula said.
Recently robbers also raided the house of Football Association of Malawi (FAM) Executive Member James Mwenda and went away with assorted households items.
The development comes a month it was revealed that the coach would be pocketing K1.7 million in salary in the new contract as the Flames head coach.
