Woman burns to death at a lodge

Blantyre Police spokesperson Augustine Nkhwazi confirmed that the arrested man Umair Ayub, 23, a Malawian of Pakistani origin who   has been formally charged with murder at Blantyre Magistrate Court.

This was after his girlfriend, identified as Kulsum Mohemd; left home n September 26 to meet Ayub in Limbe, Blantyre.

The two agree to have a discussion at an executive lodge in the city.

“Ayub claims that minutes after arriving at the lodge, he left the room to buy water outside and on his return he found the girlfriend burnt with petrol,” said Blantyre police spokesperson.

Nkhwazi said police arrested Ayub for “further interrogations.”

The deceased father Mohemd Hussein Shakih from Mpingwe said Ayub visited his home to inform them that his daughter was burnt but fell short of explaining how she was burnt.

“We are heartbroken,” he said while sobbing, “she was our only daughter.”

Shakih said his family wants justice, accusing the police of being doggy in the way they are handling the matter.

Ayub is currently remanded at Thyolo prison.

Just come from the MASM Medi clinic, over heard one of the nurse speaking about this girl, she had been a regular having pregnancy test and abortion and the boyfriend is from Pakistani government background, such sad news and reading the below comment she is already married from a boy in UK, looks like a money digger and the Pakistani boy was just passing his time with her
Shameful and who is to blame both of them, As the Pakistani boy parents have the money he will be let out on bail, I can not see justice

This is very sad. Just like the a life is lost. A young woman who obviously had ambitions and dreams of the future is gone. Many questions can be asked? Why are Pakistan nationals committing similar crimes in our country? – rape, kidnappings, murder? Can’t we reflect on this? What these Pakistanis doing in our country? Training? employment? Do we need all of them? Can Malawi learn to say No to some of these foreigners please? How do we deal with their cases? do we conclude them? It seems NOT at least to my knowledge. Why is the suspect remanded… Read more »

What if it was a Malawian who had done the same thing? Would you also throw him out of the country? As “professional Malawians” I think you shouldn’t discriminate Asians coz we’re all humans at the end of the day. Period.

Passing comments on race when someone has died just shows how racist and unhuman the posters are.

I support real investors from outside but not someone just coming here to stand in SANA as a supervisor or someone coming to Malawi just to sell Kaunjika
