Demos against Malawi police’s incompetency on Burundian Emmillie Noel death, Nov 23

LILONGWE-(MaraviPost)-Some of the country’s concerned citizens are planning demonstrations against Malawi Police Service (MPS) failure to arrest suspects involved in the murder of Burundian Emmillie Halimana Noel.

The demonstrations come barely a week after the grouping gave the service to act the matter with urgency.

Addressing the new conference on Monday, November 14, 2022 in the capital Lilongwe, the group leader Wells Khama said the demonstration targets MPS’ Inspector General (IG) to take the matter serious arguing life was lost.

Khama warned that if IG will not act upon petition presentation the grouping will physically arrest the murder suspects.

“We the concerned citizens, hereby remind the Malawi Police Service (MPS) that the seven
days ultimatum issued on November 7, 2022 has expired with very little action on our demands
for the MPs to arrest suspects connected to the mysterious death of Lilongwe-based businessman, a Malawian citizen of Rwandan origin, Emmilie Halimana Noel 36, who allegedly
died in a road accident in Lilongwe along the M1 road around the Kanengo Northgate area on
October 17, 2022.

“To say the least, we are not shocked, and neither are we amused by the conduct of the police on
the matter. If anything we feel vindicated that those people connected to the incident are
protected by the law enforcers for reasons we all can guess,” worried Khama.

He observes, “This came very clear in one of the reactions by the police that they have two autopsy reports when actually they know that initially the alleged fatal accident was never reported to the police,
therefore those people parading the other report are the prime suspects on the mysterious death.

“It is clear that the police are now running out of excuses as to why they are not arresting the
suspects when Malawians have a million cases where the police have denied suspects bail
apparently to finish investigations and they are here in this case trying hard to finish
investigations before making arrests in a serious case where a life was lost”.

Warned Khama, “It is for this reason that, we the Concerned Citizens, reiterate the vow to fight for justice to prevail on the death of Emmilie. We hereby, intend to take a second step which is holding peaceful demonstrations on November 23, 2022 in Lilongwe where a petition will be hand delivered to the Inspector General of Police (IG) Merlyn Yolamu at Area 30.

“In an event that the police will not act after presenting the petition to the IG, we will be forced to
effect citizen arrest by picking the suspects named in the autopsy report which is in our

With a trace of sequence of events surrounding investigations and progress of mysterious deaths especially of foreign nationals, Centre for Democracy and Economic Development Initiatives (CDEDI) has as written Malawi Human Rights Commission (MHRC) to institute an enquiry.

In a letter addressed to MHRC Executive Secretary, Habiba Osman, CDEDI wants progress on how the Malawi Police Service (MPS) is handling matter of mysterious deaths involving refugees and asylum seekers, a case in point being the recent killing of Emmillie Halimana Noel, who at first was reportedly to have died of road accident but later on through postmortem discovered that it was strangulation.
