The Malawi Police Service has interdicted 13 of its officers who are answering murder charges in connection to the death of Buleya Lule
According to a circular which has been confirmed by National Police Spokesperson James Kadadzera, the 13 officers have been interdicted until justice is served on the murder case they are answering.
The 13 interdicted officers include Deputy Commissioner of Police for Central Region Evalista Goodwin Mvula.
These officers were arrested on July 10, 2020 for their alleged involvement in the murder of Buleya Lule in custody on 20 February 2019 at Lilongwe Police Station.
Until now, the police officers, most of whom work in the Investigations Department, have been on remand waiting for the fate of their bail application.
The interdiction means that the police officers will be denied some of their entitlements.
Buleya Lule at the time of his death was answering charges of abduction and killing of a 14 year boy with albinism from Dedza District.
An autopsy report revealed that Lule was murdered in the hands of the Police Officers.
The 13 law enforcers are answering a case of murder contrary to section 209 of the Penal Code.
