Police have said the shooting of a minibus tout in Limbe on Wednesday was unintentional.

Commotion erupted at Limbe bus depot on Wednesday following the shooting of one minibus tout.

According to reports that Malawi24 has gathered, a police  officer who is attached to Malawi Revenue Authority shot to death the tout Limitedi Mutozo aged 43.

A police report that this publication has seen says a customs officer identified as Mike Makwichi was on duty with police officers checking vehicle clearance documents for minibus reg number NB 1728 belonging to George Aziz from Mangochi.

“The driver resisted to hand over the keys in the process attracting public interest,” reads the report.

It further states that in the process, some disgruntled members of the community condemned the attempt to seize the vehicle and started shouting at the MRA officers and police.

One of them attempted to grab a rifle from Goodson Samudeni of Limbe Police now attached to MRA.

He accidentally pulled the trigger and shot Aziz in the head who died on the spot.

The remains of Limitedi Mitozo who was staying in Ntopwa area of Bangwe in Blantyre were taken to Queen Elizabeth Central Hospital mortuary pending his burial.

The shooting led to a commotion which saw a mob damaging the anti-crime police vehicle registration MP-2328 by pelting it with stones. Later the situation stabilised.

Mitozo hailed from Dzanjunja village in the area of Traditional Authority Mbenje of Nsanje district.

  1. If necessity was there, no problem with that for that was what any police officer could have done.
    Vuto Si inuyo ndi ine, Vuto ndi malemuwa becoz amayeneranso kudziwa kuti anzawowa amagwira ntchito. Amayeneranso kudziwa kuti kufuna kapena kuyetsera kumlanda wa Police mfuti zikutanthaudza kuti Iyeyo ndi Mdani ndipo zinthu ziwiri zikhoza kuchitika
    1. Wapolisi kuphedwa potengera kuti akuluwa mwina mfuti amafuna kulandayo amayidziwa kugwiritsa ntchito kwake.
    2.Iye kuphedwa potengera kuti wapolisiyo sangalorele kulandidwa mfuti yomwe amagwilitsa ntchito siku ndi tsiku.

    Nzoona moyo wamunthu ndi mphatso ya ulere yochokera kwa Mulungu. Sono udindo ochengetera moyowu Ukuyenera kuyambira iwe mwini. Palibe chomwe malemuwa akanaludza polora kuti a MRA omwe anali ndi wa polisi agwire ntchito yawo popanda akuluwa kuonetsa ukulu wawo wa mu depot. Lero ataya moyo wawo pazinthu zosawakhudza ndipo ukulu wawo onse wasikila ku Manda.

    Ndili ndi chikhulupiliro kuti kafuku fuku achitika ndipo Choona chichitika.

  2. I think its high time these police officers were taken to task over their mishandling of rifles. What happened exactly for him to pull a trigger on an innocent person? Or was there any scuffle between him(policeman) and the deceased. If after any incident of that sort our police are taken to task things would be better. There is no professionalism in everything our police do

  3. For a rifle to fire(shoot),they’re 3 to 4 procedures as far as firing mechanism is concerned.it takes a professional to distinguish from a trigger happy firer,a marksman, a sniper, a blind firer,a coward and smbdy who is unprofessional…….. long story

  18. Yes we agree with you that it was not intentional but it is negligence on safety and portrays unprofessional police service. He should answer the case of manslaughter due to negligence on safety since it was not an intentional decision to kill the innocent touter.
