Chinese ambassador to Malawi

BLANTYRE-(MaraviPost)—The Peoples Republic of China has expressed shock at the brutal murder a Chinese couple in the northern district of Karonga and has demanded a speedy investigation into the matter.

The reaction follows a report by Karonga Police that a Chinese couple was found dead in their shop at Karonga Town in the wee hours of Tuesday.

In a statement released on Tuesday, the Chinese embassy in Lilongwe has asked Malawi government to investigate the case thoroughly and quickly.

“This murder is an independent criminal case, and therefore requests the Malawi Police to investigate the heinous crime immediately and thoroughly and bring the suspects to justice as soon as possible.

“We sincerely wish all Malawians and foreigners in the country can continue to enjoy peace and security in Malawi,” reads the statement.

The Chinese Embassy has further described it as a brutal murder.

Malawi Police have since deployed a special taskforce to investigate the case and bring the culprits to book.

The unfortunate incident comes amid public outcry that foreign nationals have gone too far in robbing Malawians of business opportunities especially in rural areas.
