Malawi police launches manhunt for suspected thieves at budget director house: One shot dead

Malawi Police say they have intensified manhunt for suspected thieves who wanted to break into the residence of Budget Director Chancy Simwaka in the wee hours of Sunday.

Police officers guarding the residence foiled the theft attempt when they killed one suspected robber, leaving the three others running away for their lives.

National Police spokesperson James Kadadzera said the police are yet to identify the suspected thief who was killed.

“Police officers are investigating the matter, we have instituted a manhunt for the suspected robbers,” he said.

This brings bad memories of three years ago when former Budget Director Paul Mphwiyo was shot at the gates of his residence but survived the incident.

Kadadzera said the police are working round the clock to arrest the suspects.

While the action of the police should be hailed as excellent, but this is because the man being protected from thieves is a budget director. How about the ordinary people? Thieves are terrorizing them but the police do not even bother to investigate; is this fare? The police protect all Malawians, and not only the prominent people

Had it been that the other guys were out of jail, accusations would have gone the cheeky way

Keep it up Malawi police. I’m sure these thieves were sent by MCP so that they should claim that there is growing insecurity in the country. Reverend Chakwera must be the one behind all this as a way of claiming that there is growing insecurity in Malawi.
