Woman killed over witchcraft

62

A mob in Lilongwe on Tuesday killed a woman after community members accused her of killing a 10-year-old boy through witchcraft.

The incident occurred at Mitanda village in area of   Senior Chief Kalumba in Lilongwe.

According to Nathenje police public relations officer superintendent John Namalenga, villagers claimed that the old woman killed the 10-year-old boy who died mysteriously in the area.

“The boy Christon Ntambo died after a short illness which made people in the area to suspect the old woman of bewitching him,” Namalenga said.

According to Namalenga, the boy’s mother also told villagers that she witnessed mysterious things before the death of the child. This convinced the community members that the old woman killed the boy and they later murdered her.

Police are yet to make arrests in connection to the killing but they have advised the general public against taking the law into their own hands.

  1. My girlfriend once complained of headaches, for 3 days, she was saying so many things, corncening ancestors and i said, DRINK LOTS OF WATER, coz its winter, we don’t drink water.She got cured, no inyangas or profhet needed.#STOP THE KILLING!!!

  2. But why is Malawian still primitive. Why taking her life for something not sure. Only accused. You that killed her are you not the same like witchcraft for shading blood. Tell me now how are you different from her if at all… .Why not allow God to judge her. Don’t you know that vengeance is of the Lord. Jesus remember had told Peter to put his sword into his pocket for he who carries sword shall die by sword. When Judas betrayed Jesus to be killed, they hung him to death and Judas also hanged himself up and died the same death. The same cup that we use to measure water to someone, that same cup same cup shall be use to measure water to us.

  6. So, by killing the woman, are they better people than the suspected woman? They are clearly murderers as opposed to the suspicion they had against her without any proof at all. Two wrongs cannot make a right and the police must hunt down the killers of the woman and charge them with murder!

  7. Your killing an innocent woman coz of stupid myths and ideologies?? and this has happened in the capital city!! These people must be brought to justice! Ignorance is a disease Malawi Wake Up

  8. very unfair, how the hell do you kill someone without proper evidence? no legitimacy or credibility,sad part is most of victims are old people. its time Government has to lock these ignorant fools and charge them with first degree murder.
