Police investigating into the brutal murder of Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) director of corporate affairs Issa Njauju say they are yet to trace conclusive leads and are weighing all options.
The police statement comes almost two weeks after Njauju’s murder.
Speaking at a news conference in Lilongwe on Wednesday, Malawi Police Service (MPS) director of training Richard Luhanga said police is continuing its investigations into the murder.
He said, in the meantime, police have stepped up security to all ACB officials and those from the Directorate of Public Prosecutions (DPP).
Said Lungu: “We know how serious this is and police is not sleeping on this. We are doing our interrogations with various people and also analysing information that we are currently getting from the public. At the moment, all options are welcome.”
Brutally murdered: Njauju
River sand miners found Njauju’s lifeless body half-buried on the banks of Lilongwe River behind Presidential Villas in the capital city’s Area 44 on July 2 2015.
His official vehicle, a Toyota Hilux double cabin pick-up, was found burnt to ashes at Mtsiriza in Lilongwe.
Postmortem results showed that Njauju was shot twice in the neck and chest before he was buried near Lilongwe River.
Njauju’s brutal murder has sent shockwaves among officers working in agencies investigating and prosecuting corruption in the country.
