    So somebody can just be shot for nothing like some lawless ghettos in America where people are high in drugs?Shame for this thug from Mzimba.He must have been high from Nkhotakota weed.Throw him in jail and throw away the keys in Mzimba river.He should never see a daylight again until he comes out in grey hair.

    Is it ethical to display a dead person like that? Mr Chabwera may your soul rest in peace As for the young man who killed Mr Chabwera may the Lord touch his heart

    May I warn the police officers against this not only unethical, but reckless behavior as tomorrow they will suffer the consequences, there is no friendship in criminal vocabulary but accomplice. Hence there is no assurance of sefty, soon you will reap the fruits of your unbecoming tendencies. Ask your fellow SAPs who are now faced with a predicament of being killed by criminals. Believe me when l say over 50 officers have been killed by criminals countrywide.

  25. Tengupenya says:

    illegal arms are rampant in some places like Mzimba. those with arms are known by someone, like neighbours, wives, children, uncles, and others. no one is safe with illegal arms around. Chiefs and Police need your help to curb illegal small arms in your villages and homesteads.
