This is a deplorable and heinous act perpetrated by uneducated savages who took upon themselves the roles of the persecutor, police and judges at the same time. Just imagine these helpless elderly group of people facing such a violent mob of blood -thirsty savages . This kind of death is brutal and barbaric and should never be allowed to happen again. Those responsible for tbese deaths should face the long arm of the Law, no mercy. For those in support of this barbaric act just know that next time azakhala agogo anu kapena inu, kuphedwa momvetsa chisoni choncho!!!!

Some of us always hanker after wisdom and some of it, we get from people’s comments here. As such, zimawawa kwambiri to sense wisdom in somebody’s comment koma kuona kuti comment yo siikumveka iai. Am trying hard to make sense of your comment but am failing.

If I had to choose (and I hope that I don’t have to), I would prefer sodomy to murder. How would the hateful ones of Malawi who rail against homosexuals feel about that?
