The two, Takondwa Kailo aged 23 who is a grandson to the deceased and his friend Everson Lemison 23 were arrested following the death of the deceased Mary Matias.

Police spokesperson Inspector Joseph Sauka says the suspects found the deceased sleeping in her house where they murdered her and stole some cash and a mobile phone handset.

“They later buried the deceased 100 meters away,” he said.

After some days, her relative reported to police about the missing of the deceased.

Police arrested the second suspect Everson Lemison after being found with a phone belonging to the deceased.

“Upon interview, Everson confessed that Takondwa Kailo is the one who murdered the deceased and said he only assisted him carrying the body to where it was buried; a development that led to the arrest of Takondwa Kailo” said Sauka.

The body was exhumed and was later given a decent burial after medical examinations.

Meanwhile, the two are still in Police custody and are expected to appear before court soon to answer murder charges which is contrary to section 209 of the Penal code.

Both suspects Takondwa Kailo and Everson Lemison come from Msami village, Senior Chief Nsamala in the same district of Balaka.

    If human rights have to be observed then the two boys in Balaka wouldn’t gruesomely kill the innocent agogo.
    Death sentence should indeed apply in this case.

  17. wicked boys! they must be torched to death, be skinned alive, hanged and be killed with a machine gun and finally throw them to the crocodiles alive

  18. Nankununkha sadzimva says:

    The consequences of having no death penalty. People behave so stupidly. Sounds like it’s only Malawi which doesn’t have it. In the US it’s done. I don’t have to mention the Arab world, China, North Korea.
