Gruesome murder

Gruesome murder

The deceased, identified as Sani Aubi, from Khanaja village Traditional Authority (T/A) Mkhumba in the district, met his fate Monday night.

According to Aubi’s grandfather, 66 year-old Jonathan Masulani 66, the deceased left his mother’s house slightly after supper at around 1900hrs for his brother’s house within the village where he supposed to sleep.

But it was shocking when his body was discovered around 0600hrs on Tuesday lying in blood at a nearby field.

The body had a cut on the neck allegedly from a sharp object and a deep cut (opening) in the head from which brain was allegedly removed.

Postmortem conducted at Phalombe Health Centre shows that deceased died due to severe loss of blood.

The motive behind this gruesome murder is yet to be established.

Meanwhile, the Police have asked villagers and the general public at large to assist in providing information that may lead to arrest of the unknown criminals.

    It is my prayer that those who did this should be arrested. David did the sin is secret but God said to him” You did it in secret but I will do this thing in broad day -light before Israel(2 Samuel 12: 12). May our God reveal these murderers. What man does in secret God see it(Mattew 6:6). And May Almighty God show tthe world who did this gluesome killing.

    God’s Favours Ministries akuti izi zikuchitika chifukwa Mulungu wakwiira Malawi. What path etic thinking! It just shows that some people are not well-travelled and they dont read world news. kukuchitika zinthu kunja kuno. By the way, God is no respecter of boundaries because He never created them.You just need to read widely or watch National Geographic and other Tv channels to know what is happening worldwide. Some of us have been to see the devastation caused by earthquake in Taiwan; Earthquake and Tsunami in Iwate, Japan. I could not just conclude that such calamities were inflicted on the people because God was angry with the people there. Tiyeni tisiye Mulungu akhale Mulungu! Tisamupangire zinthu ayi. Let’s strive to righteous koma sikuti mvula ikachuluka kapena kusiya msanga ndiye kuti tonse tachimwa ayi. To me that is irrational thinking. That’s my opinion.

    The issue is not about Alhomwe. It is about criminality and being human. It reminds me of the book “Lord of the Flies” which i read at seconday school. Those in the know realise that there is brutality world over. You may wish to know that ISIS, Al Shabaab, South Africans, American police etc have committed heinous crimes lately. Are they Lhomwes? Not at all. Criminality has nothing to do with tribe. Those that read current affairs know how serbs and muslims slaughtered each other 2 decades ago. Lately we had cases of brutal killings in Central African Republic. Kwathu home konkuno there have been kuphana kudulana mikono and ujeni country wide.

  33. Jackson Mulera says:

    These are the signs that the World is going to an end, so repent! Repent! Malawi Repent!

    1. Mad Professor says:

      Is it? How come we have had such brutal murders take place in other countries for hundreds of years? Read your history books and check out for issues to do cannibalism and other inhumane acts. Did you read or hear of that guy in the early 2000s who chopped of a man’s head and kept it in his fridge as a trophy in Germany? It was only discovred by police after a long time. I wonder if the world was about to end on Germany ended. How about the Rwanda genocide? How about the the Janjaweed in Darfur, Sudan. Do you ever follow what they do? It’s as gruesome as what has happened to our fellwo Malawian in Phalombe. They have been even extracting unborn babies out of their pregnant mothers. Its that grissly.
      Furthermore, what would you say of the gas chambers in the concentration camps during the Nazi Germany against the Israelites during the 1939-45 Second Word War?

    we ar living in end times, the world is now ripe for Christ’s second coming, prophecy is being fulfilled in our very eyes. For serious SDA Christians, these events are awakening to their faith, “as it was in Sodom and Gomora, so shall it be now, & this is just de beginning for many evil happenings will surely cover the face of de earth

    1. Prince Fari says:

      But these have been happening all over the world for ages. So we have been living in the end of times since we were born as well as since our forefathers were born.

  53. Kwaderatowi says:

    It appears the devil in Malawi resides in the southern region especially among the Lomwe tribe. Almost every evil act in Malawi originates from this region, why? Kwachuluka mbuli, ntchito kutchera tea. Achule inu ndithu…tea amatchera?

    It’s not that these criminals are not known, it’s only that people tend to conceal the identities of the criminals. We need collective efforts from every community member to report any suspected criminals. MHSRIP.
