Man arrested for admitting to practicing witchcraft

150

A 74 year-old Malawian man in Mangochi district is in police custody for confessing that he practices witchcraft.

Police

Police confirmed the arrest.

According to police publicist for the eastern region Sergeant Otilia Kumanga, the suspect has been identified as Hadton Zituna Mkandawire.

She said the issue was revealed after three children of the same family told their parents that the suspect taught them witchcraft and demanded them to kill their parents, an order which shocked the children.

Kumanga said upon revelation of the matter, authorities in the area questioned the suspect and he admitted to have been running a witchcraft school.

The publicist said the police intervened and arrested the man for breaching peace in the area.

“The man is in police custody here in Mangochi district on suspicion to cause havoc in the area and not on witchcraft allegations,” said Kumanga.

Mkandawire hails from Chiteze village in the area of Traditional Authority Makanjira in the district and he will appear before court soon.

However, secular activists have been calling for a review on such laws in Malawi with their latest condemnation of killings of people suspected to be practicing witchcraft.

  3. The laws of Malawi do protect witches while victims are criminalised. So this old man by admitting being a witch has broken the law hence the arrest. If you become a victim of witchcraft, don’t say so or you break the law which says,”there’s no witchcraft in Malawi”. My question is, is the law benefiting Malawians in the best interest or do we need to change it? It was made by colonialists because the couldn’t understand the mechanics of craft in Africa.

  12. The Police will be asked to produce evidence before a court of law and according to our laws there is no case to answer here.

  27. He should also be charged for operating a witchcraft school without a licence. According to our land laws, this is illegal. However, after jail term, Teveta should come in and support the institution via levies becoz the school is training future leaders. May be one of them will become a NIB Director, a General secretary of a party, a Finance Minister or a president.
