Malawian youngman dies in Brazil after ‘drug-filled’ condoms he swallowed bursts
A 26-year-old Lilongwe based man Riyah Randera has died in Brazil on drug-dealing as the condoms filled with drugs which he swallowed to evade detection had bursts.
The Malawian embassy in Brazil confirmed the death of Randera.
It is reported that the youngman was a courier of a Nigerian drug lord in Lilongwe’s Area 47 residential area which has turned into a hub of drug dealing, including highly-addictive cocaine, mandrax and pedaphine.
The father of Riyah, a renowned engineer, Hanif Randera, said he learned about the youngman’s story on social media and had no prior knowledge he had travelled to Brazil.
He said he saw his son leaving in a taxi with Nigerian National Alex Ojukwu well known as ‘Old man’.
Malawi police arrested the Nigerian on Sunday and the father said he conceded to have bought an air ticket and facilitated the trip to Brazil, a relation to the family, John Benjamin Black Dzuwa said.
But the Nigerian had not shared information on how Riaz died.
Dzuwa said there should be an operation to ckeasecArea 47 which he said has turned into a drug-dealing paradise.
According to the father, Riyah had attained high school education in England before returning to Malawi three years ago to help manage a family farm in tobacco growing district of Kasungu.
Nigerians will ruin our Country like they are doing with South Africa if we tolerate them.These people have no soul, they sell drugs even to kids-under 18s.We need something like Operation Bwezani.
I also blame the landlords who are letting these Nigerians rent their homes not only it is blood money but they also sub let your guests houses to other drug dealers. Especially area 47 and area15. No wonder south Africans are chasing these devils
Banged Up Abroad
The Nigerian drug lords have always thrived in countries endowed with abundant youngsters who are generally disfranchised, unemployed and poor. They start feeding them drugs whilst still young to create a sustainable market. These drug lords thrive in countries where the rule of law has collapsed and the law enforcement units is dysfunctional. Malawi is already infitrated with Nigerian drug lords, pushers and pedlars; they have corrupted the entire policing system to the extent that even those that are supposed to be investigating, apprehending and charging these drug lords, are now part of the web. They have have taken advantage… Read more »
i agree in joburg is worse..lets kill them all
Dear Dzukani Amalawi, ur gettin too complicated. The kid was a rich spoilt kid, who probably came back from UK, with a coccaine habit, they only way he could finance it was becoming a drug mule…not everything is politics in Mw.
I think you need to talk to people in Lilongwe suburbs to understand how deep the drug problem is. It’s altrady destroying families.
This only shows that Malawi has weak laws. The problem is that senior army, police, government and politicians are on drugs lords payroll. If you can do a simple survey of schools which are in the surroundings of Area 47 thus Areas 18, 15 and 49 you will notice that most children are into drugs because of these Nigerians yet the government is paying a blind eye to all these issues because of money exchanging hands. Malawi is mainly used as drug route to South Africa and Asian markets. If you travel to South Africa you see most of the… Read more »
And where are we with the drung syndicate case of August 2017 involving that Nigerian caught at KIA (Christian Osingweleni) who was using Madam Lusungu Mlenga and Madam Rita Juma and hid the drugs in a coffee table? We need to see progress if we have to be seen to be serious about the fight against this drug business. Can the Director of Public Prosecutions take over the case from Police please?
THE CHAIN OF DRUG SYNDICATE IS VERY VERY STRONG THAT IT CAN’T BE BROKEN. POLITICIANS, MINISTERS, SENIOR POLICE OFFICERS, SNR. SOLDIERS, LAWYERS, MIGISTRATES. EVEN PARENTS OF THE CHILDREN WHO ARE POSSING AS TRANSPORTERS. DO YOU MEANT TO BELIEVE THAT THE PARENTS OF THIS KILLED CHAP DIDN’T KNOW ABOUT THE DEALINGS OF THEIR SON???????????????
i believe the Father of the boy knew the deal and he was a beneficiary of the same because i head him being interviewed on radio and he claims after seeing his son with this Nigerian in a Taxi and his son not coming home that evening he asked the Nigerian of the where abouts of his son and the response he got was, we parted ways in town. Now, the father notified the police of the missing son with the Nigerian as the first suspect and yet two months down the line the Nigerian come to the father and… Read more »
You really shouldn’t talk too much about shit you don’t know about you don’t know about …….The father is a well respected man and for you to start accusing of such stupidity is wrong don’t you think if he knew about it he would have tried to stop the son…..which dad would let the son do that……Don’t you think if the dad knew about it …he would have tried to cover up for the Nigerian man….if you ain’t got anything positive to say then it’s best you don’t speak…..instead of trying to stop drug dealing you’re here accusing innocent people…….Shame… Read more »
Well I hope he will feel the stupidity of his actions when he knows how his son died!!!
I don’t accept that it cant be broken!!! all that chain can be broken and eradicated! out nation is going to disappear! URGENT LEGISLATION AND VERY FIRM ACTION NEEDED NOW!
Nambewe… Good Morning…..THIS IS MALA-WI…..top 5 poorest countries on planet earth, we have more urgent issues to deal with like infant mortality……..
Learned Fellow: how are we going to improve issues if we dont have a just legal system? one that is not influenced by MPs, foreigners? bills need to be passed and the Malawian government does not accept what they feel like they won’t benefit from. THIS IS THE MAIN ISSUE if we have the slightest hope of dealing with issues like infant mortality!!!
Look at the new drug network developing in Nigeria with medothine!
This is very sad for the youth to be used in such kind of ventures. I think it is possible that the young man was killed by the drug dealers in Brazil in collaboration with their Malawian based Nigerian counterparts with the aim of using the corpse to transport several kilos of drugs which wouldn’t have been possible with the boy carrying while alive. They can load and embalm the body. From a whatsapp version, the whereabouts of the dead body is not known and it is possible that it is being loaded with the drugs and even the repatriation… Read more »
maybe be body was repatriated to another country under another name !
