Chimulilenji, who was delegated by President Peter Mutharika to visit the communities after fracas that resulted into deaths of four people, said Malawians were all one and renowned for peace world wide.

“Where there is a problem  lets sit down and discuss this as one people.

“We don’t need to see these scenarios that leave us all crying. Its sad. This should never happen again,” said the Vice President.

Chimulilenji, who is Minister of Disaster Affairs,  said President Mutharika has ordered the department to assist all the victims and also provided support in terms of coffins and transport.

The Vice President stressed that mob justice should not be means of solving challenges in communities and people should strive to talk to one another to resolve issues.

Two of the victims funeral took place on Wednesday.

Meanwhile, Minister of Lands, Housing and Urban Development Symon Vuwa Kaunda, who is also Nkhata Bay Central legislator, said six people have died so far.

“Six people have died. I have bought three coffins and provided a lorry to ferry the bodies to Karonga. The three were residing at Mkondezi Settlement Scheme, but are originally from Traditional Authority Kyungu in Karonga District,” he said.

The minister said the other three dead are from Nkhata Bay.

Malawians, let’s not avoid telling the truth about Nkhata-bay destructions.
The issue reached this far because of Police negligence. The Nkhata-bay Police failed to act professionally and timely when the matter was just reported to them before even fighting started.
How can the Police order the civilians to catch their fellow irate civilians and bring them to Police for questioning? This was a mistake and no one is talking about it unfortunately although you know the truth.
The systems are surely broken in Malawi and we need a fixer.

Indeed Police were negligent, it was the job of the police to find the means to bring the one who borrowed money from this businessman who was killed and not for a businessman to catch him. This was indeed a big mistake by the police. That’s why we are saying Cadets are in police jobs and they don’t know what to do if someone reported the matter to them bcoz they are not trained in such. We also heard about Police raping school going girls at Nsundwe and under age in that matter, where is our Police heading ?? Plz… Read more »

Za ku Nkhatabay ndi zawo. Sizikukhudzana ndi Mtambo. Zonsezi zikuchitika because people have lost trust in our police and the entire security and law which are selective.
