Blantyre Mob Justice

Torched.

An angry mob on Monday in Blantyre burnt to death a man for stealing a handbag and two smart phones.

According to information sourced by this publication, the man stole the handbag which contained money amounting to K40,000 from a lady at Chinyonga bus stop.

Further information sourced reveals the suspect was caught after the victim shouted for help from well-wishers.

The mob then agreed to burn the suspect.

Police later came and took the remains of the deceased to Queen Elizabeth Central Hospital (QECH).

The development comes at a time when the country has registered an increase in cases of mob justice.
However, some organizations have spoken tough against mob justice in Malawi arguing that the country has laws which should be respected.

  1. Malawi watayira yani chikondi komanso mtima wachifundo unali mwaiwe uja kuti lero walimba mtima kuvala uchigawenga now umbanda ngati Iwe ungaweruze motere mulengi adzachitanji

  2. Wrong is wrong yes!! But please my neighbors, do not become heartless like south Africans! That’s why we have police around. Life is precious! And economic
    Every sinner is a candidate of heaven! Spiritually speaking, you are planting seeds of killing, that may continue, just as what happens right in Sa, ka small issue, they want to shed blood, not right at all, be ccivilized like us Zambians!

  3. Kuotcha ndi kuotcha basi palibe chisoni . Bwanji iyeyo sanachite chisoni kuba ? Dziko lililonse akuba alipo koma amalawi mwaonjeza mabedwe mutha ndithu akuotchani .

  4. Its necessary to burn those bastads after investigation otherwise muzatentha munthu osalakwa. Nose amene mukuthamangila kunena kt mbava ziotchedwe muzadabwa muli inu akukuotchan mutanamizilidwa, mark my words all foolish comenters!!

  5. To what level do people sink when you deliberately take the life of another human being? Let the law take its course. Playing judge and juror does not make you a better person by killing someone! What is this world coming to when A human life means so little. Does the lady whose handbag was stolen feel good about what happened to this person? was that handbag money and phone worth the life of another human being? Precious Jesus have mercy!

  7. Vuto ndi police yathu 2 much corruption. Ndiamene akuonjezera umbava pa Malawi pano so the best way iz to burn them

  8. This is what makes me think religion has thrived and failed. Holy books make it clear that we shouldn’t judge others and mostly, thy shall not kill, so where do we get an authority to do so? We let those real thieves walk free and give maximum punishment to little criminals like these? Shame to humanity

  27. After burnig them, you should also EAT them if your conducts to be in line with otherwise judgement belongs to the CREATOR.

  28. While we are strongly saying no to mob justice,and also acknowledge that our country has laws,the question has to be how are the laws applied. This is asign that people are not happy how these laws are enforced,give them hard punishment if caught.

  29. This is unfair punishment! The life of human being is very expensive than anything.lets try other ways. Ungoganiza utakhala iweyo kapena m’bale wanu munakamva bwaaaaanji? Imeneyo si deal.

  31. Nkhani zomaotcha munthu akagwidwa ataba zafika posauzana, but in my opinion thats not good to do so, lets remember that our country has got laws accordingly to every matter, olakwitsitsa siwakuba yekha ayi koma almost tonse, tinangowona kusiyana zochitika zathu, ena achwelewele, andewu, ufiti, and the like…. Mulungu anamusintha Sauli kukhala Paulo, and yet we call Malaw God fearing country…Is it true?

    • every person has a right to bail and fair trial. People who are rich but hve committed serious offences are out on court bail .People dont talk but when a poor thief steals a laptop nd handbag he is being killed and u blame the police for that .Life is so precious my dear. Learn to forgive others when they commit minor offences.

    • I’ve been stolen from a number of times and i never felt the need to kill the person. How can you think 2 smartphones and a handbag are equal to a human life?
