Malawi police in Mzimba district have admitted that evil spirits that are currently suspected to be reproducing in the district are heavily affecting their operations.
Police publicist in the district constable Gabriel Chiona told Malawi24 that the said spirits are behind the increase in cases of suicide which are characterizing the district at the moment.
He long-established that only this year about 15 cases of suicide have been reported while those of rape remain numerous.
“For a person to commit suicide, it means he has evil spirits because a normal person cannot think that way. Evil spirits are behind all this,” confessed Chiona.
Recently police urged religious leaders to pray for the district with the primary aim exorcising the said spirits that are believed to be behind the rising cases of suicide, ritualism and incest.
They (religious leaders) prayed for that but still more a lot of people seem to be clinging to their evil ways.
Recently this publication has been publishing articles that have been picturing Mzimba as one of the districts where immoralities are the order of the day.
At a time a primary school pupil committed suicide; two men were busy planning to sell an a child living with albinism.
It is in the same district where a teacher proposed love to a girl with albinism with the aim of selling her later.
Cases are many but the police have pleaded with such evil spirits to relocate to hell and leave Mzimba people.
Meanwhile this paper understands that some church authorities from a number of churches are planning of scheduling another day of prayers to seek Gods power and protection for the people of Mzimba.
