Mob justice at College of Medicine: Security guard killed over missing trousers

BLANTYRE (MaraPost)—A 30 year-old security guard has been beaten to death by angry College of Medicine students, a constituent college of the University of Malawi (Unima) for allegedly stealing one of the students’ trousers.

According to Blantyre Police Assistant Publicist, Constable Grace Mwale, one of the students, Willard Lumetcha alerted fellow students that his trousers was missing and made rounds searching for the missing trousers until it was found with the guard, who reportedly confessed to have stolen the trousers.


Following the confession, angry students confronted and started beating up the guard who was working for Roma Security Services.

“He was taken to Queen Elizabeth Central Hospital for medical attention as he had sustained severe head injuries. But he was pronounced dead upon arrival at the facility,” said Mwale.

She insisted that investigations are underway on the matter and that they will bring to book students that have a hand in the death of Banda, who hailed from Namalaka village, Traditional Authority Changata in Thyolo district.

“We have not arrested anyone in connection to the matter but will surely bring those involved to book,” she added.

The deceased’s body is still lying at the referral hospital’s mortuary pending postmortem, according to Constable Mwale.-MARAPOST.
