Malawi Police officers in the southern region have hailed the decrease in crime during the first three months of this year.
According to police, a total of 6410 crimes were recorded from January to March in 2015 while this year a total of 5687 cases have been recorded over the same period, representing 11 percent decrease.
Southern Region Police spokesperson, James Kadadzera said the development is due to massive sweeping exercises and patrols police have conducted this year.
Kadadzera further assured Malawians that the law enforcers will work round the clock to ensure crime is combated in the country.
He also advised Malawians to stop mob justice arguing that the country has a constitution that ensures fair trial to every citizen.
On the cases of increased abductions of people with albinism, Kadadzera said the police have launched a campaign aimed at sensitising people about the malpractice.
