Malawi Police arrest 2 more suspects over killing British man

Malawi Police in Mzuzu have arrested two more people in the murder of a Briton, Allan Fay, who owned a resort in the city.

The British man was found near his home in Malawi after reportedly being “suffocated to death with a plastic bag”.

Northern region police spokesperson Peter Kalaya has identified the two murder suspects as Oswel Chirwa and Julius Ngwira who were arrested on the wee hours of Wednesday, August 24 during a police raid.

He said the arrests follows an intensive underground investigation.

“Chirwa has since been found with one of the two cellphones, a Samsung J2, that were robbed from the deceased on the fatefull day. The phone has been positively identified by Fay’s employees and confirmed by a call log,” said Kalaya.

Fay, who owned Lake View Resort in the outskirts of Mzuzu, was murdered on June 28 and his body was found some 100 metres away from his resort.

The arrest has brought the total number of suspects arrested in the murder to five after the arrest of Fay’s wife, resort manager, Gift Mtambo and Zione Chirwa.

Oswel Chirwa, 38, a resident of Chiputula township and a sewer comes from Chawanyika village in chief Mwankhunikira’s area in Nkhata Bay while Ngwira, 35, a resident of Msongwe, hails from Wadosoka village in chief Kabunduli’s area in Nkhata Bay

Foreign Residents in the country are slowly packing their bags to leave this hopeless Nation. Frankly, I am appalled and disgusted by this murder and the murder last year of ‘Mike’ the American man in Sanga Nkhata Bay. Nkhata Bay area and it’s residents are well known for laziness, evil and jealousy. ALL the suspects arrested for the murder of Fay is right on..it is said that ‘Fay’ was planning to leave the woman selling everything…so it is alleged that the murder was the way to acquire his properties…the murder in Sanga last year of ‘Mike’ had a similar community… Read more »

DEATH OF AN INNOCENT MAN.All that Mr FAY WANTED is to be human.He married into our society
and established a business to help in the development of our country, and we thank him by killing him.

What has become of our society? Tumbuka,Tonga, Chewa, Lomwe, Yao, Ngoni etc.
That is irrelevant it is the morals of our society that matters. Such acts only helps to bring great
shame to all of us. That is not independence, it is pure stupidity and evil.Those people deserve all that
they get in our justice system.

This comment is bad. Every tribe has bad people. This is why every village has a headman to solve issues.
