The Malawi Police Service (MPS) is yet to arrest suspects behind the alleged abduction of activist, Sylvester Namiwa in July last year.

National police spokesperson, Peter Kalaya has told Zodiak Online on Wednesday that, "at the moment we are still investigating the matter until we get to the bottom of the issue.

"When we are done with our investigations, the nation will be told of the outcome."

Namiwa says that he finds it unfortunate that the country's police is taking months to arrest the suspects despite him giving them evidence and available CCTV prints in some places.

Namiwa added that the country needs to be worried on how police are handling security matters concerning citizens.

"I am at pains to comment at this issue because in company of police, we had gone through places where there were overwhelming evidence including the Closed Circult Television (CCTV). It is surprising that police are changing tunes now," Namiwa said.

The activist also indicated to had reported the matter to the Malawi Human Rights Commission-MHRC and Independent Complaints Commission who were not immediately available for comment.

His alleged abduction attracted some debate where some believed it was schemed by the political agents aimed at silencing the critical civic voice while others thought it was fake.

Centre for Democracy and Economic Development Initiatives (CDEDI) Executive Director, was found in the outskirt of Lilongwe on 27 July 2022 after the alleged abduction.
