Soldier was fatally shot

Tension in Zomba city as there is anger at Cobbe Barracks of Malawi Defence Force (MDF) after  a patrol police officer fatally shot a soldier on Saturday around 11 pm.

Crowds gathered at Zomba police sation on Sunday to get the information on the shooting incident.

MDF spokesman spokesman Lt Col. Francis Kakhuta-Banda confirmed that the shooting victim  Lance-corporal Price Lameck from Pwandaphwanda village, TA Nkalo Chiradzulu was a soldier at Cobbe Barracks.

“Currently details of the deceased are not ready as his next of kin has not been located and communicated to,” he saind.

“Investigation as to what led to the shooting are being taken to come up with a comprehensive report.

Sources said  he was shot dead while coming from a pub outside the barracks with his in-law and got into a figt with police officers when he tried to get away a gun from patrol officer.

The solider was being questioned on rogue and vagabond by police on night patrol.

The police spokesman for eastern region Thomeck Nyaude said the registry has recorded a shooting incident without details.

Police reportedly abandoned the soldier who was taken by some traders to Zomba Central Hospital where he was announced dead.

Nyasa Times sources at the barracks indicate there is “anger” in the way police killed the solider.

Soldiers want “justice” on the shoot-to-kill action by police.

    Learn to comment responsibly don’t bring in your stupid comment here! Life & soul was lost what if you were @ MDF or he was youe brother? Would you have commented those silly comments? Justice should prevail sit down & discuss as one family war will lead us to no where

  2. Madalitso says:

    I sometimes wonder some citizens bringing in stupid comments on this issue. This issue is serious & needs in depth attentions if not more might come in!!!! Its 100% sure that if battle can rise the police department will lose, lives & property will be lost. The best thing is to sit down & discuss resolve the matter amicably as one family. Justice must prevail

  28. midyomba says:

    The moment the soldier touched the firearm he became armed. Put yourselves in the policeman’s shoes, what would you havedone? At least he was shot on the leg, which shows professionalism by the policeman. The soldiers in malawi are arrogant and illiterate (not all, but most of them) which makes such incidents inevitable.

  29. j g says:

    Malawi soldiers behavior is shit.they act like people without brains.they act like Craver while crazy. They must learn from foraingn soidiers like south Africa Zambia n Zimbabwe.no displine in malawi army.i wish they fight for lake malawi,so pity .Tanganyika ifast an furious.

    two things which our taxes are being wasted upon…malawi football team and malawi army..these guys waste a lot of money through training but deliver nothing…i propose a referendum whether we need these two besides come rain or sunshine the issue of the lake is non negotiable and the risk of war is minimal probably 0 then we dont need these useless so called soldiers

    Trying to grab a gun from a Police Officer is a serious crime. What if the man (soldier) had grabbed the gun and killed the Police Officer?

  44. Jimmy Kwelani says:

    These ppos so called the soldiers they must learn to respect anthu omwe alipansipawo

  45. ndangodutsa chisale says:

    Why not target the drunkard’s leg? Our Policemen behave as if they are opha agalu a chiwewe with intent to kill. There must have been more than two policemen but failed to contain woledzera. Their intention was to confiscate the beer bottles and drink them. Umphawi wavuta pa Malawi courtesy of the siphoning of billions by PP and DPP.

  46. BigMan says:

    Barking, barking, barking, and barking some more…for nothing! Soildiers operate under the very laws of Malawi that we all do, if a soildier decides to kill somebody he will be arrested and locked up just like the rest of us. So calm down, the tension is only in your head!

  47. Aristotle says:

    It is high time the government did something on hw the police is treating civilians. There is too much brutality and cruelty. If the status quo goes unchecked, civilians will consolidate and amalgamate powers to strike back and fierce will be the impact.

  48. king abdullah says:

    this needs a sober approach what type of gun was the officer carrying the police need nu guns those that can injure not the 303 or the fabliques. on the other hand this guys need continuous rifle handling skills Ku range enawa anapita Ali Ku training xul no wonder akaombera amangopha malo movulaza.

  83. Mbonga Matoga says:

    This is exactly what happens when a clueless commander in chief of our armed forces in the country that also happens to be the head of state, gives a direct order to the police to use any force against the very same people they are supposed to protect. You can not give such an open ended directive to a poorly trained trigger happy Malawi police force that leaves a lot to be desired.
    In the UK not every police officer is allowed to carry arms and those who do have to pass a rigorous test first and it does not end there, every year they have to pass an amplitude test to make sure they can still be trusted to carry a fire arm without endangering the general public.
    How on earth can well trained three, not just one but three police officers fail to contain a single drunk unarmed person to the extent that they resorted to murdering him in cold blood.
    I am just hoping that our army will handle this case with the sensitiveness and maturity it deserves; we do not want to see another operation Bwenzani.

    There is more to this story.
    Did the President invite MDF when changes were being made? But police were given platform. ????????
    The Police officer must have a vendetta with the Army guy if it is true that the fiancé is at a police training school They knew each other. There is more to this. It is however difficult for the police to investigate since it involves one of them that is how this country is ruled.

    Condolence to the family it is sad to lose such a grown up man for whatever reason.
    Condolence to the fiancé. She may know something about this police officer. May be a Human Rights Body should investigate such cases than leaving them to the Police as they are an interested party.

    Having read the article i have come to conclude that the Army officer(may his soul rest in peace) provoked the situation. Mind you the policeman was on duty and to make matters worse this guy wanted to snatch a gun really? That was recklessness of the highest order. What did he want to do with the gun after snatching?

  123. onlooker says:

    Malawians, listen and listen very carefully i have got few questions to ask, how many cases have we heard that police officer has killed such such child due to stray bullet? per year if not for this year alone, and can you tell me when have you heard that a soldier has killed a person due to stray bullet? that is where professionalism differs,i don’t know what do they aim at when shooting if at all they i wonder no matter what happened in Zomba you guys get ready to pay because that is not work and professional if a person has shown you an ID that am a soldier what else do you need you want to exercise your power at wrong time, why?Malawi that is why we are behind in many things in terms of development,instead of going to places which are vulnerable to theft these mobile patrols they go where there is light at bus depots,Bars,restrauants res thouses,yet they knew that people are there relaxing and sleeping why going to such places because you are thieves you want to persuade people to give you little something how many times have we heard about robberies in the cities yet patrolling is the order of the day,so am so abashed by the police officer who has taken a life of an innocent brother wherever you are, bear in mind that you will be like cain and Abel story how could you,God will let you come to your senses repent brother otherwise thats blood shed you have done repent for the forgiveness from the almighty God,imagine if this happens to you, wife kids relatives something like that.i knw alot of police officer they dont know how to handle a loaded rifle i think government has to make sure that weapon lessons these so called police officers has to go to army to learn how to handle a loaded weapon because there has been miscelleneous cases.But what you have done brother was against the Law TO OPEN FIRE wasn’t such a degree,my understanding of this case is on this way, one you provoke the soldier,two after the soldier told you guys of his identity you disregard that, by saying so if you are a soldier so what? things like those, buy doing so, a soldier is good at reading the mind of people within 2 seconds that is where the argument begins even if i were a soldier i cannot allow a police officer to arrest me, i cannot, you are saying resist of arrest mmmm that i don’t think so, tell the truth at once to shame the devil you shoot intentionally may be after you were defeated or your rifle was taken away from you or the soldier stripped your rifle within seconds and take some part of the rifle so you fill like you have been defeated and humiliated so the open fire was not the solution at all, soldiers are well know for their discipline and professionalism which is installed in them,THOUGH SHALL NOT KILL

    Firstly, the police were in a wrong shooting somebody who was unarmed and this is uncalled for. But the question should be – Is our Army or the soldiers themselves have disprin because every citizen of malawi who know how our savage soldiers behave in public places could easily imagine how this guy was behaving at that moment. Our Soldiers should learn to behave in public without using their status as weapon.

The offcer on duty did the right thing coz the conduct of the deceased amountd to that of a hard core criminal,

The worst thing the policeman did was not take the wounded soldier to the hospital as soon as possible. He died due to loss of blood. Let the bosses from both sides negotiate and reach a compromise

    Maybe we shud analyse the whole situation and figure out who is wrong. 1st the police were @ work. Questioning him was not a problem coz he was found walking along th road at an awkward hour. 2ndly, Y did he choose to take away a Gun from th policeman? Did he want to look a genius coz he works in the military? Is tht proper? Is there any professionalism here? 3dly, Y did th policeman choose to pull the trigger? Was it an accident? Bt if it were an accident Y did they choose to run away? I find un professionalism in both sides. Its up to the courts to decide who is guilty…

  163. Onasiwelo says:

    The problem with our men in uniform is that a good number of them are savages, sometimes they behave like are all above the law, may be it comes from the past when army and police people were recruited based on appearance those who were well built and very black in completion were taken aboard, and they think is by force. This army officer may his soul rest in peace did something which led to the shooting by this stupid police officer, at 11:00 pm is very old hour and the police have the right to question any body but then since they are all un civilized in ended up into a fight which the police officers were losing and had to use any available weapon unfortunately it ended up into a death. So I would propose that let them kill each other after all they have nothing to do but making troubles and I am not sure why we pay them with our taxes. As for polices officers or I should say dogs because that their name all they know is geting bribes and stealing, good for nothing ask them to go and chase thugs they will run and chicken like dead chicken. AS for the army well I am yet to know what they do apart from moving around drinking and womansing, no nobody and I repeat no one can attack Malawi. If anything we can not fight any war because we do not have materials so leave them to kill each other stupid people.

    Most of the comments here are very childish. I was in the MDF during Ops Bwenzani and participated in many operations. We should also remember that Ops Bwenzani started from a shooting by the MYP after a beer-hall quarrel. Similar circumstances though not identical.
    If the MDF has to do what most of the comments are suggesting, then many, not only the Police will get hurt. I dont wish that to happen. However, having said that, the Police need to be professional in the way they handle their fire-arms. You do not have to have ammunition in the chamber unless you intend to discharge the same. Now am looking at an intention to injure or even kill by the Police Officer.
    Lets hope those entrusted with the duty to deal with matters such as these in the courts get to have their opportunity to look at the matter.

    No. 51, you dont know the truth of the story. The guy ws drunk wth hs inlaw, they were coming from a drinkng joint to welcome their friends not his mother. Yes, he was supposed to wed this December but the wedding was postponed because his fiancee is undergoing a police training cause at Mlangeni police training xul. The officer started questioning the deceased visitor’s b4 the soldier met them. When the deceased realized that his visitor had been delayed by police officerz on duty, he started insulting the officerz, he called them all sorts of names. His visitors tried to control him but he was nt giving up. He started grabbing the rifle of one of the officerz be he never succeded. The police officer went to another side of the road as a way of avoiding him bt he still followed them. He told the police officerz that he was a fearless soldier and he dont regard them. One of the officerz shot a bullet into the air to intimidate them but he was stil unshaken. Then he was shot on the leg where he lost a lot of blood. He was taken to the hospital thru a POLICE vehicle. I got this information from the witness who were at the sin. These were: his visitorz, security guards and his inlaw who were all taken to Eastern Region police headquarterz for questioning.

Pliz when u talk about revenge becareful u will even loose ur relative, they kill everyone who is an enermy to them. Nkhondo siimanga mudzi akadaisiya mfutiyo kuti atenge akadaphedwa ndi wapolisi.

  210. chemtwiche says:

    @ Gonani, i think u are stupid too and u are far from constitution knowledge,Malawi constitution gives right to life to any person,and a person who is legitimate to be killed is the only one who has killed another person,so can u tel this Malawi that mr price Lameck during that night killed anyone? And even mr Lameck could have killed anyone Malawi constitution doesn’t gives the police officers the power to judge,the judging power is in the hands of courts according to law,the courts are ones proceed with the case and sentence th accused person to dieth if it is necessary for that according to evidences provided,the work of the police is to bring order and protect people by arresting and prosecuting the accused ones nt killing them.

    A drunkard? This is deliberate killing. Lack of proffesionalism in police. So sad that two weeks ago you killed a boy in A22 and you said you were shooting in the air. If you are a responsible police, why did you just left the victim on the spot?

    The guy ws supposed to get married in dec and on that particular evening his mum ws cming from the village and him and the friend went to wait for her at zomba bus depot and he stayed in the depot wt the friend and other pipo aswell, then the mum called that shes near and lameck decided to go to a near by atm to withdraw cash to use for a taxi when his mum arrives thats when he met the policemen who were on patrol, they confronted him and he produced his ID and they said it ws fake and there ws a quarell leading to one policeofficer firing in the air then shooting him on the leg and leaving him there. It was the vendors at the depot who were observing all this at the time who took him to the hospital bt had already lost alot of blood.
    The mother arrived minutes later and had to be told to go to the barracks gate after her soons foni kept ringing without being answered and she had to call the friend

      Read the story again and again.If the office(military) was not able to get in touch with the deceased relations,this tells you that the version of”amakadikira amayi/wachibale mu depot ” is fabricated because that relation would have been in the forefront to provide more infor/details.

    The police is not in the wrong. The soldier was walking around at 11pm and the police was questioning him. The police is in charge of internal security hence they has all the right to question anyone that was walking around at that particular time. He should have identified himself and not question or underrate the policemen.

    Our soldiers are very undisciplined thus it is not surprising that there is such an incident.

  226. Jimmy says:

    Stupid,useless behaviour of MDF has led to his death,dnt blame police bcz its their duty to question everybody whether Army or President if found walking at that time.

  227. Mhango says:

    The shooter really knew who he was aiming at,and how could he use such a force to an unarmed and aparently drunk guy,yes the killer could argue to say “protection”, but how and what are they taught in training on stop and search operations?,

  230. Jimmy says:

    Iam very concerned abt the way MDF staff behaviour towards other law enforcement bodies like MP etc.It has been high time MDF requard themselves like Emperors of Malawi when it comes to law,bcz what i see here He was trying to get away with a gun belonging to patrol police,giving himself the mandate to do yet forgeting it wasnt their business to patrol and was entiltled to be questioned by police at that night time.But it seems he wanted to act showing that he is MDF & can do anything against anybody.Stupid mind of MDF plz change your behaviour its not on your wrking conditions to do so.

    1. Mirella K. says:

      You are just on point my friend, if this selfish MDF personnel managed to get the firearm…not only the police officer but also other residents of Zomba cld av risked their lives, shupit!

  232. Redeemed says:

    My major concern is the boxed message allaged by the soldiers, where the ratio is 1 to 100, this is precisely the main challenge faced by our public servant. No life is worth more or less than onother, irrespective of status. I wish public servants could understand there primary role in society. soldiers in particular whose main duty is to protect the country and its citizen.
    To this day and age I still fail to understand the attitude of soldiers who regard themselves as gods and demand respect from the very same people they serve. We desparately need a transformation with regards to the public relations between the public and the authorities, the army in particular and the first step is a change of attitude.

  233. dadaboma says:

    I don’t seem to sympathize with MDF and this particular soldier. These guys are just big-headed for nothing. They think they’re on top of everyone. When you meet them on the road they want you to give them way, even if you’ve the right of the way..if you meet them in hospital ques they jostle patients around to be the first to get help.. actually everywhere these people are just big-headed. And yet they are just eating our taxes in the barracks without doing anything! They eat, they get fat, and fart, and run the streets to deflate their fatness and pollute the streets with stinky farting. TZ wants to get our lake and yet these MDF have no capacity to deal with TZ. When you hear APM saying Malawi does not want to fight with TZ over the lake, its because he knows his MDF can’t do anything. Police, the poorest rewarded are the hardest working to help keep Malawi safe. If soldiers decide to retaliate in this case, I’ll join the police to kill more of the MDF soldiers.

  235. GONANI says:

    Koma that soldier sounds very stupid. Why do we continue to have useless undisciplined soldiers like that? Such people will always cause conflicts between state organs, we don’t need them. The police were not wrong, they were trying to bring order in a town which is riddled with lawlessness and thuggery. Keep it up, police. M D F members are supposed to be highly disciplined, and I am sure that well behaved members are just like that. They know their place.

  241. Baba wa Boyi says:

    It can only happen in a primitive country where the army threatens the police. The army in Malawi is so idled, as a result this drunk chap wanted to show off that he can disarm a police man.

    In a situation like that it is very likely the gun when off in the struggle.

    Are those people blaming the policeman saying he should have just let a person he did not know was military get his gun?

    There was a lack of discipline on the part of the soldier, “Kumwa kwazifukwa”

    Yes this was shoot to kill, these people behaved like thugs, so one got shot, and the shot person was at fault.

    The police should not be intimidated in doing their job, it works both ways, (should not be intimidated by politicians, and should not be intimidated by the public)

    Should the fact that the deceased was a soldier make any difference? certainly not.

    Is it not the same people here that complain that the police are themselves robbers, what makes you think soldiers are not Robbers?

    I for one have sympathy for people who interfere with other peoples jobs, believing their jobs are better.

        Very good logic. What kind of moron tries to snatch a gun from a law enforcement officer? If you were the policeman would u let a drunk soilder wapamalawi get your gun? (knowing how they behave – kumenya mabolela kumpila and all)

    The kakopolas and askari need to respect the law. The way askari behaves in pubs and even at soccer matches lives a lot to be desired.

    It is just a few days ago that the president instructed the police to use excessive force. This is just one of such force to bring law and order. The soldier, I think, was trying to prove that he is trained in martial arts and hence can grab the gun. However, I am not a soldier, but we learn that in such incidences, we shoot the leg and not the heart or the leg. The police killed an unarmed person. Foot-steps-of Bingu wa Mutharika. Soon you will set this country on fire again. Tensions are mounting and tightening near.y in all battalions now, look at Mafco, Mzuzu and zchilumba garrison, killing in cold blood!
