  5. MOG says:

    While I totally support “shoot to kill” but dieing after being shot on the leg looks abit smocky. Don’t try to hide the truth. Shoot in the head and say it as it is. Otherwise, keep it up. Arms are meant for our security and not that of the criminals. Shoot them!

    As much as I don’t celebrate any loss of any life, this soul needed to be put to order cos it was a total manace to the public and it is worth while that it’s been taken off from among us. Well done cops I love people who are willing to serve their country other than those who serve their political masters.

  33. Well done police! Keep on shooging tk kill these thugs. I’ve a few friends of mine in MPS therefore, I will not allow these bandits to keep on killing our police officers who r serving the nation.

    Tiyeni nazoni mpakana zithe zonse ngati zikakamire basi Shaliah law will apply.

  34. The real Ujeni says:

    We are a small country, by now, all the robbers would have been caught. Next time don’t waste time telling us you are doing investigations that’s stupid talk, do a lockdown immediately cover the area go by helicopter, sniffer dogs, track them and make a statement. Not we are doing investigations, that’s silly talk. You do your investigations when a robber bolts from the cells.

  35. tchadiwiki says:

    Kanengo petroda? Which incident is this?

  36. This is good. I think a police became serious when they saw that these thugs are willing to kill them. Before that they thought they could share the spoils with these criminals.
