Police publicist in Chiradzulu, Victoria Mwanza identified the man as Mackson Makoka who hails from Maulana village in chief Mpama’s area in Chiradzulu.

Mwanza said the daughter, Chimwemwe Mawala went to the family garden to cut a sugarcane but this did not please her stepfather who severely beat her up for cutting down the sugarcane for consumption without his authority.

The police officer said after the beating, she was severely injured and was on Monday taken to a health centre where she was treated as an out patient.

However, on Tuesday her condition worsened and died when she arrived at the hospital.

Postmortem, according to police, showed she died of fractured skull.

In Dowa, it was the opposite. Police have arrested an 18 year old boy for beating to death his 44 year old biological father according to a report on Malawi NewsNow.

Dowa police publicist Richard Kaponda confirmed the arrest o Lewis Kachigamba on suspicion that he beat to death his father Genesis Kachigamba.

Kaponda said over the weekend, the father picked up a quarrel with his wife and the son because he was very drunk and came home where he allegedly insulted his wife and his son.

Lewis is said to have watched as his father insulted his mother, but lost his temper and started beating him until he died.

A post-mortem revealed that Genesis died of internal bleeding.

Lewis – from Topazi village in chief Msakambewa’s area in Dowa – was set to appear in court soon on murder charges.

    Now this is very bad . . . !!!
    . . . How does one clobber a 12 year old helpless girl to the point of breaking her skull for sugarcane or whatever? You see, if poverty, abuse or any form of nkhanza is all you have known since the begining of time, you are more likely to become the same. Indeed,poverty is the worst form of mental slavery!
    . . . That sugarcane field and contents therein, are family property, and you mean the members have no right to eat even a single cane? Mhhhhh!
    . . . Men need to know that nkhanza or being tough to your wife or rough on the kids, does not make one more manly but the opposite does (love, kindness, friendliness e.t.c).
    ………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………
    Now I feel for this boy!
    . . . You see, one of the most painful life’s experiences is to see and watch your mother (helpless and vulnerable as she is) being insulted or physically abused by whoever. And the most difficult thing you can do in such a situation is doing nothing.
    . . . Let is be put in print that getting married to a drunkard is one of the most important mistakes that women make in life. Coz more often than not, a drunkard’s mind is impaired and thus, is abusive and careless (in his sexual escapades) and care less (about the family or responsibilities). Alawys remember to . . .

    “Choose your life’s mate carefully. From this one decision will come at least 90% of all your happiness or misery.” – H Jackson Brown

    . . . Stay away from drunkards, if you can; and while you can and if possible. It is always possible.
