Malawi police are investigating the murder of a girl who was found dead at Chibavi ground in Mzuzu city on Monday.

Police publicist for the city Martine Bwanali said that the girl might have died after being severely injured in the head by yet to be identified suspects.

He however could not shed more light but only revealed that the police are investigating on what happened and later they may give more information.

“Not much information as of now but she was taken to Mzuzu central hospital where she was confirmed dead upon arrival the same Monday,” he said.

Malawi24 has been told by witnesses that Chibavi ground is a very dangerous place to pass by especially during the night hours because some unknown criminals have turned the place into a death trap.

“Last month, another young man was also beaten severely on the same ground to the extent of being admitted at Mzuzu Central hospital. The place is being used by some murderers as a death trap,” said Anthony Banda, a resident in the same township.

Some community police members for the township confirmed of being aware of the stories of brutalities happening at this ground and recalled that one day they besieged it but they could not manage to catch them.

“They however promised to work round the clock to bring the suspects to book very soon so as to bring calm in the township where currently tensions are still boiling high.

“They snatch people’s phones and money and they kill those who don’t have. We will nab them; they are not clever as we are. As community policing, we have our own ways of tracing such criminals,” said George Nyirenda, one of the community policing members.

In this city, townships like Zolozolo, Chibavi and Sonda are known to be home to criminals and youthful gangs who are very violent.

Recently, people found the body of a woman and her child within Sonda Township while last yearn this publication published a story of a Livingstonia University second year student who was brutally killed in Zolozolo township.

  5. Medicine after death? It’s high time MPS should embark on modern method of policing. Not road blocks/carrying rifles around, no. Criminals are sophisticated and some of them you don’t even search (abwana). Interigence matters a lot and undercover not weapons.
