A group of plain clothed Malawi Defence Force (MDF) soldiers from Cobbe Barracks in Zomba on Monday afternoon confronted some police officers who were patrolling near Spar Cash and Carry shop in the city.

Malawi Army soldiers demand justice on gun shot victim

Malawi Army soldiers demand justice on gun shot victim

The development comes hot on the heels of the shooting to death of MDF soldier, Lance Corporal Prince Lameck by patrol police officers on Saturday night.

The deceased was laid to rest at his home village in Chiradzulu on Monday.

He hailed from Phwandaphwanda Village, Traditional Authority (T/A) Nkalo in Chiradzulu.

Tension has been mounting in the city since the shooting incident after the deceased had allegedly picked a fight with the police officers when he was coming from welcoming his mother at the Zomba Bus Deport.

City residents witnessed the ordeal in town as the soldiers comforted the armed police officers and broke a rifle in the process.

Since the incident, the streets in Zomba has been without police officers and the development is being viewed as fear by cops of MDF retaliation to the fatal shooting of Lameck

The shooting of Lameck has reminded soldiers in Zomba of another incident when police officers in 1998, fatally shot Army pilot Lieutenant Colonel Francis Gordons Dzineso as he drove on the M5 road connecting the Army Air Base and Zomba Town.

    I wonder are those plain clothed confronters really soldiers? Why not doing their stupidity while in their uniform?What were they afraid of?A true citizen cannot clap hands for the soldiers intimidating police officers on duty.This can lead to a lapse in internal security-thieves can be given full control and there can be day light robbery.Were the confronted Police officers really assured that the confronters were our beloved soldiers?I am afraid those guys could be an organised group disguising themselves as MDF.So our Police be on the watch.

  7. ta army timadzifila ngati tigamenye. tikamaliza ka training kawo timangokhalira kugona mpaka retirement. apolice kukhala cheteku asaone ngati kupusa. akayamba kubwezera ta army tochepa kaleti ndiye titheratu. ta army-to tizisiyanisa POLICE ndi MYP. ti anyani tachabechabe. ta army USAVEGE unawachulukira. mxxx!

    How come it’s only soldiers who are shot? Something must be wrong with them

    Lack of civic education.Foolish & stupid behaviour of a small MDF towards MP.This is unacceptable and you can hardly see it happening in developed countries.What picture do u show to the public here.

    Apolice Mwaonjeza,mpaka Kuchotsa Moyo? I think u must apologise

  11. victim Chamkhuni Lwazazi says:

    If the incident happened because the plain clothed soldier was trying to disarm a police officer on duty then there is no case here. If the soldier was realy coming from welcoming his mother, and was sober, then how come he was overpowered and shot by the policeman? This tells a lot about the capability of our soldiers.

    We always say that we r God fearing nation so where is our fear if we r encouraging the two parties to fight? Suppose if it waz a soldier killing a police man. What would the police men do coz they r regarded as weaker than de soldiers. How the zomba residents will be affected with such scenario? Think about that u soldiers.

  19. Ngemba says:

    The killing of a soldier is unacceptable but though it is the issue about security, i think police for showing physical apologizing buy keeping a distance from soldiers as they are doing it so, we all know that police cannot fight against army for these guys are so strong. But my advice once a person claim to have identity police should know that the person is cooperating. Some police they work under the influence of Masacheti which is so bad, on behalf of Police i apologise to all soldiers, and say please forgive the police the are young young brothers of you guys. God bless us all.

  66. jomo says:

    This is automatically show that they is no professionalism in our security agencies! The police officers could have just to had cape the lone less soldier but they shoot him dead instead, and now the soldiers are making security less state by scaring every police officer on duty, what kind of a country are we residing in? As far as I know, army consist of highly disciplined personnels where by they act by order . So my question is who gave authorization them to act?

  69. Gift Maliseni says:

    I also reside in de same cty & i`ve bn meetin de de police officers fo several tyms patronising de cty but dey never aimed a gun at me.This means de soldier wanted to impose his superiolity on de police officer.ndiye sakanachitila mwina

  70. ujeni says:

    Malawi army is full of mabulutu okhaokha, check them you will see, dull and iliterate. Leave the Malawi Police who work alone. You want a fight, then go to Syria after all you are paid for doing nothing

  71. Onasiwelo says:

    What ever the case, it does not justify to shoot and kill another person, both the army and the police are maroons that is true, the Police are trained to handle such type of people i mean thugs, vagabound you name it but not to kill, what if the killed officer was your brother would you have said all these stupid comments? It is the first time the stupid un educated police officers have shoot and killed on the sport an inoncent citizen of this country what about Fanikizo Phiri, what about the twenty people killed in July 2011 during demonstrations, what about Robert Chasowa, what about the two who disappeared in Mzuzu police cells. Our police officers are un civilized and can never be trained and will never know the importance of life until they start to be brought before the law. Remember police officer is under the law so is the army office.

  73. inayake says:

    Soldiers lack discipline. The are here to protect our nation and all they do is harass us. Several Police officers have been arrested thus bearing testament that they are not above the law. Operation Bwezani in 1992 or there abouts started out in a similar manner. Let this not be the start of chaos. We enjoy the our freedom, we enjoy the relationship we have with Police officers. Senior army personnel should step in and put an end to this. Hooliganism and no respect for public officers should not be tolerated. We already have a crime issue to solve in this country. Don’t add any more.

  74. Ineyo says:

    Police should learn to use their trained skills in all circumstances. Soldiers should learn to also be professional at all times. In this instance, one bullet would have been understood as an accident, but three bullets, two in the chest and one in the abdomen – ameneyu wa polisi wapala chitedze asumbidwe basi.

  79. Blessed Banda says:

    Let the Commader in Chief His Excellency declare war with Tanzania so that these soldiers should find something to do. Otherwise I do not see the reason we are still recruiting many of them. They are becoming a menace to the society. They want the public to be fearing them yet they have never fought any war. Peace keeping in DRC and Ivory Coast under UN is not war. They are shielded by UN protocols. Let them face their own.

  82. Redeemed says:

    From the majority of comment, I wonder how the Malawi public servant pledge resonates, As a public servant you are honoured to serve diligently and to the best of yourr knowledge, dedicate your time energy and resource to do all possible to contribute to the vision of building a united nation. You commit to working hard to implement the pilliar programee of radical transformation, modernisation and re-industrialisation of the particular nation, driven by purpose, results and passion to serve beyond the call of duty, while being leading as an example to the entire nation with regard to integrity, productivity and patriotic sense of duty and strive to be self driven and passionate about working in the public service and be true to serving residence of the nation. But the key factor to accomplish all the above is hummility. If our public servants in general could adopt these values, such incidents could easely be avoided.

    Its true our army officers are rude, very rude. They take the law in their hands and challenge pple out there that they are soldiers. You can blame the police man but if you hear his side you will know that the army man was the trouble maker. Yes, the police patrols at night and we have been meeting them. If you xplain your side, they escort you or leave you so this army man anachita matama momwe amapangila akakhala ndi anzake. Dont blame the police.

May Dzineso’s soul rest in peace.

    The army officers are goons! They intimidate everyone. Damn! They even bring a truck load of savage soldiers just to revenge their fellow nincompoop who might have been beaten for trying to snatch somebody’s woman at a drinking joint!

    I guess its its becoz they have never seen real combat! Go fight the Taifas mukawone magazi, mabala, dzilonda zotuluka mphutsi ndi kununkha kwanu imfa! Mudzaona polekera!

    Mphiyo..it’s ok to write in your mother tongue…whatever it is…………

  101. Education is the key to success. Some soldiers are illiterate and like to provoke innocent people just because they are soldiers. Please stop intimidating people at bars or in public places. If you want to fight go and fight the Taifas who are ready to grab part of our lake because of your stupidity

    I remember an incident when an army guy wanted to beat me up while i had not done anything wrong or anything right. I was standing on the roadside with my girlfriend waiting for a minibus and this guy was drunk and removed his shirt insulting anybody on the road. Upon reaching where I was with the girl the guy wanted to manhandle me. I never smiled or laughed at the guy but there I was in trouble. I don’t condemn the shooting but i wouldn’t encourage the men in uniform to respect other people. I have high respect for our Police and the army too.

    1. Mphwiyo says:

      Rather would encourage not ‘wouldn’t encourage’
