Police worried over acts of mob justice

108

The country’s security body, Malawi Police Service (MPS) says it is worried over the increase in number of cases to do with mob justice.

This comes barely days after angry mobs in Blantyre, Phalombe, and Nsanje, last week set ablaze three suspected thieves.

In an interview, Malawi Police Service spokesperson, Nicholas Gondwa, said this is too bad in as far as the country’s security is concerned.

Gondwa; We are worried.

He said this act is increasing now in the country though the country’s laws clearly state that everyone is innocent until proven guilty by the court.

“As the mother of security in the country, Malawi Police Service is worried with the increase of such acts. People have granted themselves powers to do whatever they want and we know that this is being done with the power of ignorance,” said Gondwa.

Meanwhile, Gondwa says MPS is mobilizing people on what to do with suspects.

He however, said people do this deliberately claiming they have been teaching them but they chose not to do be advised.

  3. So you wonder why? Lol you’re not serious. Bail is free the police say so but why do they in other stations demand for cash to effect bail in the cases that aren’t of that category?
    As I’m writing this comment a mob has burnt a house of a man who mystically killed a woman whom he suspected to have killed his three days old goat. The woman was first arrested by the police on this man’s demand then bail was granted when the relatives paid cash demanded by the police. When released the man is angry and he asks her, who released you? We shall see. In a short time the woman vomits blood and dies.
    On the other side our constitution is questionable here. The mob burnt his house and all his belongings that includes a sedan car.
    We’re not judges for judgement belongs to God.

  4. Mps has to discuss with the thieves not us, tell them to stop robberring our houses if u r falling to keep them in jail for life, if they think they can not stop,we can not stop too!! We r after them until we finish all thieves

  9. And the weapons these thieves use are provided to them by the same police. Once these thugs are caught the police immediately grant bail to them.
    As is the fact people do apply mob justice because we had lost hope in policemen of Nyasaland.
    Malawi Police is too much corrupted by thugs.
    Tiziwaphadi akanyimbi omwe azigwidwa akupanga za umbanda.

  10. Kubwezela ndi kulipsira zili mmanja mwa mulungu.Bible limati isakondwere pamene mdani wako wapeza mavuto.umenewo ndiye mzimu wa ambuye.There4 there z nothing 2 smile about.

  11. With the current situatin in crimes here in Malawi i think mob justice is viable. The society is at siege with these thieves. We can not condon this. We have to eleminate them in our society for they are a setback to development. If police is ready to eliminate them in the society they have to come open and act. We hear they are part of this malpractice. We will burn them to ashes once caught.

  12. Mob-justice is the best deal to endup such conduct.for so long,we have been looking for ways on how to terminate such apalling behaviour,my appeal to all security holders,is that let this system of mob-justice be legarised.

  13. Of course,it’s the duty of the MPS to maintain peace,law & order therefore likely to bring this public notice BUT mbavazi zikuyenjeza…ndiyenso zimakhala zavala mikuzi ngakhale kuzibweretsa ku police station m’mawa ziri pa street chimodzimodzi kunjonja!

  14. mukukanika kulanga mbava A malawi police,,,,,and mob justice is the Best altenative,,,,,,kut muonetsetse amene zikumawagwerawa sikut limakhala tsoka ayi amakhala agwidwa in that act,,,,,koma akatengedwa ndi police zimapezeka kut mawalake akutibelanso anthu ake omwewo omwewoo

  15. Akuba akubwerekedwa mfuti ndi apolice,ndizosadabwitsa mbava kupita nayo kupolic uva 2dez yatuluka. Anthuwa ndi amodzi. Mukagwira kawalala avekedwe teyala nthawi yabwino basi. Aphulitsidwe maso komaso manja adulidwe ndi miyendo ngat akufuna akhale ndi moyo kut asadzabeso apo biiiii kong’onthani oyimba anaimba kale za mbava

  16. Yes, this will continue. And it must continue. We have the police, but crime rate is still high. Wat else are we going to do? Burn them to death! And i hail it as an important milestone towards achieving the fight against crime in Malawi.

  17. Malawi police 2 much bribe we catch a thief and took hm to police station after 2 days he will be released on fake bail the same day will hear that same person was stealing somewhere ife monga amalawi tigwilane manja pothetsa umbava tikagwila mbala ikuba tilange ndithu kaya kupha kumene anthu akuba alibe ntchito ndianthu obwezeletsa amzawo pambuyo

  18. So if mob justice is best answer to deal with a thief why do you run away when u realise that u hv killed someone when cops are coming? Pls lets not take matters in our own hands, am not sure police can release someone if he found guilty nooo

    • Kod iwe waganiza bwanji kubakira zigawenga ngat zimenezi? Vuto sunabeledwe kapena kuona munthu atabeledwa, sibwezi utayasamula choncho. Akuba ndi akupha choncho akuyenela kuphedwa.

    • I didnt insult anyone of u and i cant, so if u think u are clever enough to come up with your insult u betta shut ur mouth What can u do if a thief is ur brother and people are stoning him to death or burn him? Can u go join them and kill ur brother? This manner always done by people who hv no spritual hearts, but Bible always tells us that “we all sinned and became dwindling in his kingdom” where do we take powers to judge others for their wrong doing? May God forgive and free the demon out of all of u who opose these words and insult, I may not blame u guys especially that one who produce stong words, but am highly blame evil inside you Amen

    • Brothers do u know what? Devil is tricking nowadays, punishing someone for what he has done makes u to be inhuman, That is why God gave us people who deal with these people so if police corupt thats for the almighty to jugde, but for all of us mob justice is fruit of devil, even me i hv been robbed for several times but i hv never take my hand against the robber because God has never give me a power to deal with this kind of people, some of u u go to church and u even know what Jesus did when people catches a woman who commited a sin and atempt to stone her to death do u remember what Jesus told them?? “if any of you has never sinned must start stone this woman” was there anyone who went on with this?? Why?? Dont let devil to manipulate u for his own goodness against God
