The robbers are said to have went way with over K90 million.

Reports say the armed robbers who were dressed in FMB attire pounced on the money which was about to be banked at the Reserve Bank of Malawi.

Witnesses told Nyasa Times that the two police officers who were manning the bank were shot and later rushed to the Queen hospital “but one of them was pronounced dead on arrival at Queen Elizabeth Central Hospital while other police officer is receiving treatment.”

Malawi is experiencing a spate of armed robberies which has forced the Chinese businessmen threatening to leave the country.

I am deeply concern with the rise of robbery that involves killing innocent people. I would urge Police to eliminate notorious criminal while in cell or when caught. The Police should not provide security to the Rights Groups because they are the ones influencing notorious acts in Malawi. When they feel pain they will not defend life anyhow, lets go for BINGU’S SHOOT TO KILL APPROACH.
