Mzimba police panicking over road accidents, seeks God’s intervention


Malawi Police in Mzimba have confessed that they are panicking over the possibility of rampant road accidents in the district during the festive season and have called upon the faith community to pray for God’s intervention.

In an interview with Malawi24 on Wednesday, Sub-inspector Maxwell Chimphonda of Mzimba Police admitted that as the festive season approaches, many people are not comfortable as history shows that it is the time when road accidents increase in the district.

He said that many people lose their lives in the road accidents which some people believe are attached to evil spirits thus the police think spiritual affairs can best be addressed spiritually.

Road accidents scare police.

“We have a history that most people lose lives on the road in festive season, more especially in Mzimba where we have special places where accidents often occur.  As we approach yet another festive season, we have thought it wise to collaborate with our fellows from the clergy to help us pray to God so that such accidents may be reduced,” said Chimphonda.

Authorities from Mzimba Pastors Fraternal have since confirmed collaborating with the police on the prayers which will be held this coming Saturday.

Malawi24 understands that the two parties will conduct prayers in places like Mzimba Bridge, Chakaza, Watileka and Livili where they suspect to be home to evil spirits that facilitates road accidents.

They will also sensitize locals on how to be strong in faith and how to avoid road accidents for the betterment of their district.

Records seen by Malawi24 paper indicate that Mzimba is one of the districts where the highest number of road accidents has been reported this year.

However, some people feel the police have contradicted themselves as they enforce laws that do not recognize the existence of spirits.

  4. 99% of these accidents are caused by careless/dangerous driving. So don’t waste God’s precious time, all you need is to sort out your system which just sells licences to drivers that are not meant to be on the road. You should also get rid of the vehicles that are not road worthy by refusing to take bribes from their drivers. So go to your offices and have a word with yourselves and implement as per the advice.
