Police partners WLA, MHRC in fresh Msundwe probe

The Malawi Police Service has revealed that it will soon start fresh investigations to find culprits in the Msundwe sexual abuse case.

This comes as the public security agency claims that its previous investigations on the same issue did not find any perpetrator of the vice.

A total of 18 women and girls from Mpingu, M’bwatalika and Msundwe were allegedly raped by some police officers during a police operation which was carried out in the areas in October, 2019

In an interview with Capital FM, James Kadadzera who is the National Police Spokesperson has explained that the fresh investigations will be done jointly with the Malawi Human Rights Commission-MHRC and the Women Lawyers Association-WLA.

“We are set with a team of strong investigators to investigate the matter. We have partners like the MHRC and the WLA.” Highlighted the Police publicist.

Kadadzera has however not revealed as to when these investigations will be starting and ending.

“When the three of us are ready we will inform Malawians. I can neither give time limit nor deadline because these are matters of investigations.” He emphasized.

The police’s October 8, 2019 operation, followed the death of one of their colleagues, Usumani Imedi who was stoned to death by unruly residents from Msundwe who by that time were protesting Peter Mutharika’s leadership.
