President Professor Arthur Peter Mutharika has strongly warned those peddling blood sucking rumours that they risk prosecution, as they are instilling fear in people when there is no evidence on the ground.

Speaking when he presided over the launch of Mgumano wa Amang'anja na Sena in Chikwawa on Saturday, the President said investigations from various stakeholders such as police, intelligence and hospital has unearthed no evidence of blood sucking.


"What we have established is that some vandals are simply taking advantage of the rumours to kill and steal from innocent people. Let me warn all rumour mongers that they will be arrested and be punished in accordance with the law," said President Mutharika.


The Malawi leader further warned that if not handled, the rumours have the potential to disturb various developmental activities, such as the impending Farm Input Subsidy Program (FISP).


"We are rolling out distribution of coupons next week. Please do not mistake them for blood suckers," said Mutharika.


Mutharika has since directed that Malawi's places of worship should dedicate this coming weekend to pray against the vice.
