MHRC plans to institute an independent inquiry into Njaunju’s murder


The Malawi Human Rights Commission (MHRC) is planning to institute an independent investigation body to probe the death of former ACB’s corporate affairs director, Issa Njaunju if police investigations will fail to yield results in the soonest time possible.

MHRC chief, Justin Dzonzi said that his commission will give the proper investigating bodies limited to come up with tangible results.

“They still have time but we will not wait forever because we want the matter solved.

“If we will continue seeing this then we will bring in an independent body to investigate the murder,” he said.

Dzonzi added that an independent inquiry body can do the job much better.

“With independent investigation bodies there is no room for inteference like it is with other government entities,” he added.

Recently, the familiy of the former ACB director of corporate affairs, Issa Njaunju expressed sadness towards the way government was investigating Njaunju’s murder, claiming the issue is slowly dying a natural death.

Speaking in an interview the spokesperson of the Njaunju’s family in relation to the murder of Issa Njaunjus, Ibrahim Njaunju said that his family had lost trust in the country’s investigative bodies.

“We wonder why investigations are taking ages, the police have hit the wall yet they keep on telling us that soon they will find the culprits.

“We have lost trust in the Police because they are not doing what they are supposed to do which is to find the killers of our brother.

“We will not sit back and let nothing happen to those who mudered him. We will do everything in our power to make sure those who killed our brother face justice ” he said.
