A mob in Dedza has killed an unidentified man on suspicions he was involved in a theft of a bicycle in the district, Malawi police say.

According Deputy Police publicist Constable Cassim Manda, the incident occurred on Wednesday night when the bicycle owner 36 year-old Eliko Biziwiki was going to Malimba in Mozambique via Thete to buy the cooking oil.

Killed.

When Biziwiki was about to reach Mpira village, three criminals came out from the bush and struck him on the head, which made him lose control and fall.

Constable Manda said when Biziwiki fell down; the gang took advantage of it to ride the bicycle, but the bicycle owner rose and pulled down the one who was on the carrier.

He then screamed for help and people from the surrounding villages arrived at the scene and they beat the thief to death.

Meanwhile constable Manda has condemned the act and has branded it as degeneracy. Despite that the act is unconstitutional Manda said it is also affects investigations as police now would not have a chance to recover the bicycle which has been stolen.

He warned all perpetrators involved in killing the young man that they will soon be arrested for murder.

According to Manda, arresting a person believed to have committed an offence is allowed in criminal proceedings and evidence code provided the arrested person shall be handed over to any police officer or in absence of police officer such person shall be taken to the nearest police station.

Manda also said the word mob justice is ironic because it serves no justice at all as the accused is brutally punished and possibly sentenced to death within seconds of being identified without being given the right to defend themselves as the constitution requires.

Manda said this barbarianism act results in sad repercussions as the system contributes to hit and run incidences since people involved in accident fail to remain at the scene of crime or report the matter because they fear of being beaten to death by an angry mob.

Manda added that bystanders are more willing to pass the scene of accident for fear of being misidentified by the crowd and these results in the death of those involved in accidents.

Manda has since asked general public to go to their office and identify the body which is now at the district hospital mortuary.

    • Timothy,ukuphweketsa? Ukuganiza kuti munthu obisala patchile m’mbali mwamsewu amatenga zida zanji? Ndipo ukuganiza kuti zidazo zimamudikira ndani?Uzakhumudwa ase.

  12. Punishment varies according 2 the gravity of the offense.I don’t see justice there.The day is coming when man will give account on what he has done during his/her life time.

  13. Malawians where is the love that we once shared and had for each other? lets not forget even if we can cut into pieces somebody but later we will realise that we are all Malawians!!! Am not supporting the man who was involved in the theft but we have the court of law to judge if somebody is guilty or not!!!!
