Malawi Police Service has dispelled growing fears in the eastern part of Malawi that there are vampires sucking people’s blood.
It is rife in the districts of Mangochi, Machinga and Balaka that blood suckers are on the loose in the districts.
Recently, an angry mob in Mangochi torched a vehicle after suspecting that the owner was a vampire.
However, Malawi Police public relations office said in a statement that people should not panic as they on alert to provide their safety and appealed to the public to report to the law-enforces if they have evidence of a blood sucker.
“Any person who has evidence about these stories should report to police so that police officers can investigate with professionalism,” said a statement from Police.
The law enforces warned the public to desist from taking the law in their own hands if they suspect someone to be a blood sucker.
The Police have also appealed to the people not to spread stories of blood suckers as they were creating despondency and breaching peace in the society.
The stories I hear are usually about witches: this is a new one.. It is NOT April 1.
