Malawi top crime buster and key investigator on  Njauju murder case dies

A key state investigator in the high profile third in command at the graft busting body ACB murder case has died.

Bob Mtekama, the only forensic expert on murder cases has succumbed to diabetis, according to family sources.

Mtekama has battled the sugar disease for years.

Until his death at Seventh Day Adventist hospital in Blantyre, Mtekama was appointed head of the Criminal Investigative Division (CID).

Reports we have gathered show that the deceased police chief had a wound which never healed due to the underlying condition of the diabetis.

As a result, the wound became cancerous.

Police authorities are yet to comment on the matter.

Most Malawians are still very uncivilised! Diabetes, if uncontrolled is fatal. We are told that the man developed wounds (usually on the feet) which eventually became cancerous and this is typical of uncontrolled diabetes. Many people have succumbed to diabetes in this way. Many Malawians are very speculative and believe that witchcraft plays a role even in very obvious situations. Google and find out more about diabetes. Msungama has died of uncontrolled diabetes (High sugar levels) and not the stupid speculations of MCP, Chisale or DPP having bewitched him. This is called ‘fear of the unknown’ and Malawians have a… Read more »

It is MCP that has terminated this man because he told government, DPP corruption cases including the murder ones do NOT have enough evidence (in some cases there is NO evidence) to take to court or lead to successful prosecution. Amukonza munthuyu chifukwa wanena zoona.
