Malawi Police Yet To Complete Investigations On Capital Hill Inferno

Written by  Written By Staff Reporter Feb 20, 2017

The Malawi Police have disclosed that that are yet to release a report on their findings into a fire that gutted down some offices at Capital Hill in Lilongwe.

This comes a week after the accident happened.

It is alleged that the inferno started from the office of the Minister of Agriculture, George Chaponda, before spreading to other offices.

This was just days after a Commission of Inquiry into the ADMARC maize scandal recommended that Chaponda be investigated by the Anti Corruption Bureau on suspected corrupt practices.

Speaking to Capital FM, National Police Spokesperson, James Kadadzera stated that investigators are still on the ground assessing the damage caused by the fire.

When quizzed on when investigations would be completed and a report made available, Kadadzera emphasised that police work takes time.

Adding that the law enforcers are doing all they can to find the truth behind the inferno, so he could not mention when investigations would be complete.

The public has expressed disappointment on the very same issue more especially at how the law enforcers are handling the matter.

in light of the maize saga many doubt whether the fire was really caused by an electrical fault.


Social commentators are of the view that this was done with the aim of destroying evidence as it is not the first time a fire has allegedly been mysteriously lit to destroy pertinent information.
