Angry villagers storm police station, kill murder suspect

30 March 2016, 19:05

Lilongwe - Angry villagers of the Dedza area in Malawi have stormed a police unit and killed a suspected murderer in the latest case of mob justice to hit the region.

According to a Nyasa Times report, the suspect was said to have killed a villager during an attempted robbery, setting off a wave of anger that would later result in his own death.

Police spokesperson Nicholas Gondwa, confirmed the incident, saying no arrests had been made in the case thus far.

"The villagers went to the unit around five in the morning and forced their way into the cell, where they took out the suspect," Gondwa said.

This came as Malawi Star reported that a top government official narrowly escaped the clutches of an angry mob after suspicions that he had killed a bicycle taxi operator.

Anderson Kawajere, executive manager for the Karonga District Development Division (ADD), was alleged to have knocked down the operator intentionally. His car was subsequently destroyed as a result of the chaos.
