According to information at hand, Sulugwe met his fate when he was travelling from Mchinji where he had gone to visit his relatives.

The incident happened just after passing Mpingu, where unknown car hit his vehicle from the back and started a chase with the aim of hitting him off the road and make it look like an accident.

He was able to outspeed the thugs’ car, described as a black Nissan Xtrail with no number plate.

Luckily, the thugs quit the chase when Sulugwe approached the security Road Block along the way.

Asked about the incident, Sulugwe only said he is ‘safe’ and that’s what really mattered to him.

“Don’t worry about anything. I am safe. I was born and raised here. Malawi is my home. Once again, I am safe, that’s what really matters to me, the rest, I have no interest in.

“I am still in the country for a couple of months. For now, I have just been advised to take necessary measures and be on guard. It’s not everyone who is happy with what we do,” explained Sulugwe.

Prophet Bushiri is reportedly saddened when he heard of the incident and immediately took action, hiring private security personnel for his PRO, who is believed to be one of his most loved and right hand men.

He also reported to have hinted that this is among other various reasons why he has no interest to invest in Malawi because his trusted men who put up good work for him are usually attacked.

Few months ago, one of his pastors, identified as Pastor Arnold Juma was attacked to near death by what is believed to be regime thugs.

Few months ago, Sulugwe’s name appeared in what was believed to be ruling  DPP’s ‘ Hit List’ released by a party militia who was involved in the planning of eliminating  government critics.

Sulugwe lives in South Africa, but is currently in Malawi to facilitate the launch of Bushiri’s rap competition where the winner will walk away with MK3 million plus a car.

Bushiri is so far seen as a political threat to President Peter Mutharika despite his continued refusal that he harbours no interest to run for presidenct.

His church and his followers are constantly attacked by DPP’s propaganda blogs.

Akhristu sitinjoya pa dzikp lapansi kwanthu ndikuzisenzera mtanda basi. Tikanjoya kwa Mulungu ife chifukwa kumeneko ndikumene kuli mtendere. Osadanda ngati uli mwana wa Mulungu. Koma ngati uli man of God. Munthu wa Mulungu ndiye dziko mulinjoyadi koma mapeto ake ndi kufa kenakp kumwalira.


what will somebody gain by killing Sulugwe? Looks like its him who set up the hitting just to boost their popularity. There are people who have died on the road popular ones not devils advocates. keep the story to yourself.
