Malawi Police Service (MPS) have condemned the recent increase in number of murder cases in the country.
In a press statement made available to Malawi24, national police publicist, Rhoda Manjoro said the rapid increase of these murder cases is a result of misunderstandings.
She said marital problems, personal differences, and mob justice are the major reasons for the increase in murder cases in the country.
“For instance, on 21 October, 2015 alone, seven murder cases have been reported, two in the southern region, two in the north and the other three in the central region,” said Manjoro in the press statement.
Meanwhile, the Malawi Police Service is warning all people in the country not to take laws into their hands saying third parties such as the police, churches, victim support unit and traditional leaders are there to help them.
The law enforcers say people should also refuse to be involved in fights or any other kind of violence when at loggerheads with each other.
