The rising cases of insecurity in Malawi has displeased many quarters, latest being the Chinese Embassy in the Lilongwe who have requested Malawi law enforcers to tighten bolts and nuts checking the security situation in the country.

The Director of Consular Services at the Chinese Embassy in Malawi, Zhou Baoguo, bemoaned the insecurity Sunday in Blantyre, during the Cremation ceremony of a Zhou Feng, who was shot death by un identified robbers.

“We call upon the Malawi Police to provide adequate security not only to the Chinese or Malawians, but every one. and further call upon the law enforcers to hunt those that are responsible for this death and bring them to justice,” said Baoguo.

The 48-year-old Feng, a Chinese national, who started his cooking oil production business in Malawi in 2004, was shot dead on July 13 2013, by robbers who had stolen money from his Mapanga factory.

The Director condemned the criminal act, observing that the investments brought in the country by people like the deceased, have made a tremendous economic impact to the country and the citizens of Malawi.

Information provided by the Overseas Chinese Chambers of Commerce in Malawi show that the deceased was born in Tongchuan City, Shaanxi Province in China.

There have been rising cases of insecurity in Malawi in recent months, especially in the major cities of Blantyre, Lilongwe, Zomba and Mzuzu, making people wonder what the police are doing so that people should be robbed or killed willy-nilly.
