Citizens Demand Tight Security As Murder Cases Grow

By Nelson Gonjani, DOWA

As police are hunting for the murderers of former Coca-Cola Sales Manager, Allan Witika, some Malawians observe there is general security breakdown demanding urgent lasting intervention to secure people and property.

On Wednesday, Lilongwe residents woke up to heart-rending news of Witika’s brutal murder right in his vehicle on Area 15, close to M1 Road.

Witika, 37, from Liwonde Village, Traditional Authority Kanduku in Mwanza District, had cuts in the head; growing suspicions of foul play and people are now demanding justice on the matter.

Earlier, Lingadzi Police spokesperson Salome Zgambo indicated that their preliminary findings showed Witika may have been murdered elsewhere.

“The position of the body shows that this is murder. The body was moved from the front seat to behind the seats and had deep cuts in the head. We have since opened a murder docket,” said Zgambo

However, some citizens have taken to various social media platforms; expressing worry over what they describe as security breakdown especially in the country’s major cities.

A citizen, Kondwani Masina writes: “It’s high time our government needs to look into security issues seriously otherwise things are not okay in this country; everyday we are hearing such cases it’s too much now.”

And Austin Makawila chips in: “This God fearing nation is slowly becoming the devil’s battle field.”

On the other hand, Jacob Matomola thinks security agencies are in deep slumber: “Why such cases are rampant in Malawi? Security agencies should wake up.”

Again, Kelvin Dokali wonders: “My Malawi? What’s wrong with us? No longer a peaceful nation, death has become a normal business.”

Witika’s murder comes after police arrested some people in connection to another brutal killing of a police officer in Ndirande, Sub Inspector Boniface Kumundayayi and a former Malawi College of Accountancy student, Alli Dulani, two months ago.

Late Allan Witika is suspected to have been murdered Wednesday morning.
