Man killed for molesting women through magic


An angry mob has murdered a 44 year old man who is believed to have been sexually molesting women through magic in Area 50 in Malawi’s capital, Lilongwe.

The victim has been identified as Masauko Koshoni.

MchinjiKanengo police spokesperson Laban Makalani said women in the area were complaining that a man was sexually abusing them through magic.

On Wednesday at around 4am, Koshoni who was residing within the area and was working as a bricklayer was caught inside a house while attempting to rape a woman who was sleeping beside her own husband.

“During the incident, Koshoni was simply wearing an underwear,” Makalani said.

Community members caught the man and severely assaulted him.

Police visited the scene and took Koshoni to Area 25 health centre where he died upon arrival.

Police have since opened a case of murder and are appealing to members of the general public to desist from mob justice.

Koshoni hailed from Mkungula 2 village, Traditional Authority Masambankhunda in Lilongwe.

  1. This bad development. Issues of magic are hard to believe. Imagine, how can someone plan to sleep with a woman who is in the same bed with her hubby?

    So the community took the law in their hands?

    I don’t expect to hear something like “the deceased” was in love with this woman.
