The Malawi Police Service yet again took Malawians for granted by lying that it had submitted to the Justice ministry a conclusive inquiry report on the murder of former Polytechnic student, Robert Chasowa.
Reports from the Justice ministry are in conflict with what the police spokesperson earlier announced.
Report have revealed that the report that was submitted by the police was sent back to the security officers since it lacked substance.
“The report had no conclusive evidence and as a result the Police were told to start fresh investigation on the murder,” said a ministry of Justice senior official on anonymity.
Recently, the Malawi Police Service concluded investigations in the murder of former Polytechnic engineering student, Robert Chasowa and presented the findings of the investigations to the ministry of justice for proper action to be taken.
National Police spokesperson, James Kadadzera said investigations of murders cases of Chasowa’s magnitude normally take time.
“These are not the easiest investigations to carry out because to get to the bottom of such a case it requires expertise and patience that is why it has taken us six years to finish the investigations,” he said.
He added that the police had done its part and it was up to the ministry of Justice to take action.
“We have presented our findings to the ministry of justice and we believe a proper action will be taken,” he said.
