The suspect was shot dead at Kameza Roundabout Monday evening.

The law enforcers were on their way to Lilongwe with two of the suspects who have been caught in the commercial capital, according to National Police spokesperson Rhoda Manjolo.

“When they got at Kameza, the two suspects in the car showed the officers their friends who they claimed were part of the gang that killed a police officer and robbed Petroda.

“As the car stopped, the three suspects started to run away but police chased them and shot one of them. Two of the three are at large,” said Manjolo.

Inside sources also claimed that the suspects were found some property including vehicles believed to have been stolen elsewhere.

“It is believed that all the suspects just travelLed to Lilongwe to carry out their mission, otherwise they all based in Blantyre.

“We will not relent until we get hold of those at large. We will use any available means to trace there whereabouts and brought them to book,” one of the sources.

The criminals, among them ex-Malawi Police Officer, attacked a Petroda minibus and killed a police officer before hibernating with a whooping K46.4 million, sources said.

The criminals also snatched two rifles from the police officers.

However, one of the rifles, a K2C serial number K007376 and five rounds of official ammunitions were recovered.

No. A5517 Sgt. Anthony Mkokho was killed on the scene whereas his partner No. B3060 Constable James Clifford was shot in the head and is admitted to Kamuzu Central Hospital.

The criminals attacked the minibus near Kamuzu Central Hospital Roundabout in the administrative capital.

The armed thugs, using BS 6189 Nissan Tilda Soloon–stolen from Isaland Investment and real registration MJ  7494–unexpectedly blocked the minibus and shot at the security officers.

Rhoda Manjolo and the entire police u MUST be very dull. You stopped the car just to arrest a third suspect in the process you lose two supects, pali nzeru apa? One step forward and two backwards that’s what you are telling us. You are idiots, someone in handcuffs can not run as fast as someone without. Bodza basi!!!! You let them free because you got instructions from above period!!!! I hear winayo ndi mchimwene wa First Lady (her brother). Misana yanu! mapanzi anu agalu inu, shupiti!!!!

Mukakhala mulibe mfundo ndi bwino kungokhala chete osati kutipusitsa ife a Malawi. You feel you can fool us, how can two criminals run away. Munali angati? Osapita apolisi ambiri bwanji kuti ngati ndikukuphani mukafe 50 ena mukatsale bwanji? You are not serious guys! Put it in the hands of civilians, just show them because we know you have their names but you don’t know how to catch them. Izi ndi zoona kapena ndale tsopano? Wakufayo adzauka tsiku lina ndikuulula chilungamo la 40 likakwana.
