132

Malawi President Peter Mutharika has condemned the murder of four senior citizens by a mob in Neno.

In a statement signed by his press officer, Gerald Viola, the president says he is saddened by the brutal acts of the villagers in Chimbalanga Village.

Mutharika further said that he has ordered the Inspector General of the Malawi Police to investigate the matter and bring to justice and trial all people involved in the killing of the four innocent citizens.

Mutharika: Angered.

The Malawi leader has since advised people in the country to desist from accusing the elderly whenever someone dies and has warned that his government will not tolerate any victimization of elderly people in the country.

On Monday, a mob murdered the elderly people after suspecting that the four had killed 17 year-old Flora Kanjete.

Police in the district identified the four as Eliza Ennosi Kanjete (86), Elenefa Kanjete (76), Byson Kanjete (73), and Idesi Julius Kanjete (69). They all hailed from Chimbalanga village, Traditional Authority Dambe in Neno

So far no one has been arrested in connection with the brutal killings and police in Neno says they are still investigating the murders.

  3. Ufiti uriko koma vuto it’s not easy to point someone kuti ndi fiti chifukwa ufiti ndimatsenga umavuta kuwonetsa umboni what am trying to say is this people must get arrested akapereke umboni wokwana kuti those 4 gogo’s they were witchcraft

  4. witchcraft as a belief in Africa in particular is complicated if not mind boggling.It’s an act which can not be proved in any way and therefore it remains a myth yet to be solved.Am not very sure if its totally accurate to deny the existence of witchcraft blatantly as it remains an issue in hanging.Witch doctors as they claim to be directed by spirits are also unable to provide any practical or tangible evidence that can link or show any relationship between the act and the actor.In my opinion,the accused and the accusers should just look up to God.

Sukuuona iwe #peter ufiti akuubweresa poyerayera azungu nda luya wau asshole kuti azikupasa ndalama. Sukumakhwimira anthu antundu wako??? That’s satanism kazina kodyera mp’wanga. Ufiti udaliko ndipo uzakhalako mpakana kalekale. Panopa mukuchita kutamba poyera. Noma limaziwa kuti likangoti eee ufiti ndimulandu ndiye ayamba ndi iwowo kupota Ku prison. I hate mathanyula more than witchcraft bcoz its our own heritage than adopting that same sex f*****g.

  20. They deserve to be arrested,its really bad!.Instead of being proud of our aged poeple, we start to accuse them of being witchcraft, is that fair?.Eish!,am very much disappointed.

  21. True to that mr president, those who have killed the elderly should be arrested and face the law as murderers. There is no justification in killing someone just bcoz he or she is suspected to practise witchcraft. On the other part mr president change our laws that they should recognise that witchcraft do exist coz pipo are handling suspected witch pipo themselves coz the police cant arrest them since our laws dont recognise witchcraft. Its high time we do have the laws, we dont have to be told by a white person that witchcraft do exist.

  22. Aaah! Mr President Who Has Been Bewitched You To Make Some Compliment Issues Useless, Witchcraft Is Not A Game Like Football But This Is Killing Of People Through Magic Why Can’t You Focus The Issue Properly In Order To Have Reasonable Evidences Than Kumangonena Zoti Ufit Kulibe

  23. iwenso ngati ukufuna kuti bwanawo anyongedwe, ndibwino ukatsegulitse mulandu ku Court kuti bwanayu nayenso anapha Robert ungolakhula zopusa bwanji?

  24. ok, arrest them…and arrest those stupid assholes who think their fellow man is a woman and a fellow woman is a man.
    Arrest them.
    I condemn witchcraft.
    But seeing an elderly person as a witch,is absurd.

  25. Mukamati anthuo aphedwenso, ndiye amene atawapheyo aphedwansotu? nangasi akhala zoti naye wapha? chonchooo tizingophana mpakana tithe basi chifukwa tizikhala kuti tikutsatila zikunenedwazi.

  26. Do u think Malawi got a leader with this goat mouth so called Peter!! Malawians ll cry n cry till God eliminate him!! Besides majority did vote him but he 4cd it. C how he’s running this country! How many ppo he killed so far n y not arrest him?

  27. No but this is a serious issue that our Legislators must tables in Parliament.Nkhani ya ufiti ndiyoona kuno kwathu,koma amene sanafeledwepo akhoza kutsutsa.Its so painful kumudziwa munthu amene wapha m’bale wako matsenga ndye mkungomusiya,like this issue because some reports indicates that oneo of them anavomera kuti adamuphadi mwanayo atawapanikiza ndi mafuso.

  28. Witch craft does exist. Even in the bible it is recognized. Magicians are mentioned in the bible. So our stupid government is outlawing it. Didnt you see someone critically ill but being diagnosed at hospital the doctor tells you don’t have disease? What’s that? Repeal some of our laws are too archaic.

    • Bro I didn’t mean we shud be practising witchcraft no but what I meant we are cheating ourselves if we say witchcraft does not exist in Malawi. According to me 20 out of 100 people in malawi are witches. 10 out of 100 deaths in mw are due to witch craft.

  29. apapa basi likumumanga ndi boma osati apolice ndietu kuli kumva nyekhwe sidzinaoneke akamva madzi apo bii akachita kumutchelera bomba asova ameneyo

  30. They should not be arrested, that’s stupid,,,,, such people deserve that kind of treatment. How can they kill a young girl like that. Mutharika should concentrate on people’s health n food security. it is better for they are dead cause of people, but someone will die because of hunger. I f anyone dies coz of hunger, please don’t hastate but arrest Peter Mutharika for me. I f you want arrest him then you are a disgrace to the nation. am not done yet,,,, I have heard that he has accepted homosexual practices,,,, arrest him too. he is cheap like Chakwerah
