Malawi Police have increased the reward for information leading to the arrest of people who killed Anti-Corruption Bureau senior official Issa Njauju.
According to National Police Spokesperson Nicolas Gondwa, the K1.5 million that was put aside as reward money for help in solving the murder has now risen to K2 million.
“We therefore continue asking Malawians that whosoever has information that can assist in solving this gruesome murder case should come forward and pass such information to us. The information can be passed through phone calls, by writing or coming in person to any police station of one’s choice.
“Any information that will be received will be handled with strict confidentiality and in a professional manner. Be reminded that investigations into this murder case are still going on and this is the more reason why Malawians are encouraged to take part,” said Gondwa.
Njauju was murdered in July last year by unknown assailants and his body was discovered half buried by sand miners along a river near Presidential Villas. His official vehicle, a Toyota Hilux double cabin pick-up, was found burnt to ashes.
