Police in Lilongwe have arrested five people on allegations that they murdered a 26 year old woman Faith Chembezi of Nyozo Village in Traditional Authority Kabudula in Lilongwe who was working as a nurse at Nkhoma Mission Hospital in the district.

Lilongwe Police Publicist Kingsley Dandaula said the deceased met her fate on August 31 this year on her way to one of the suspect’s home Dokiso Soko who asked her to assist him with beddings which could be used for his visitors.

Dandaula said Chembezi met the criminals at around 7 O’clock in the evening a few meters away from Soko’s house.

He said police arrested Thomas Banda 19 of Madesa Village Traditional Authority (T/A) Mazengera in Lilongwe soon after the incident had happened who upon interrogations revealed his friend David Chinkhosa of Chande Village in the same area.

The other suspects were identified as Settie Kaunda 24 of Chauluma Village T/A Kampingo-Sibande of Mzimba who was working as Clerk for Kulima Gold at Nkhoma, Shadreck Mabvuto 21 of Madesa village T/A Mazengera a student of Nkhoma Community Day Secondary School (CDSS).

“Upon interrogation the first suspect (Banda) told police that they were hired by the firth suspect (Soko) to kill the deceased,” he said.

Meanwhile, the suspects have been charged with the offence of murder contrary to section 209, according to Dandaula.

It is reported that the deceased (Chembezi) who was in a love affair with Soko of Nthonda village T/A Mpherembe in Mzimba was working as an Administrator at the hospital.

“Police were investigating the issue until Wednesday when they managed to arrest the other three people who were at large by the time Banda and Chinkhosa wew arrested,” said Dandaula.

    This guy named Settie Kaunda has been of violent nature since our colej days at Skyway……I remember in 2010 he was arrested and found guilty of GBH and was given a lenient sentence coz of being a student. I think it is a lesson to all the young lads who do martial arts or Taekondo like him not to abuse the skills and tactics imparted for self defence. I wonder…………

    Young life gone too soon. May Faith rest in peace. But for you murderers don’t you worry just find a good lawyer. In malawi murder is not a crime. Ask Ali Kaka -he is a free man-courtesy of our own very competent malawian lawyers and judges. There is one lawyer Chipembere find him you will have no case to answer.

  18. Manyazi ndi Malawi says:

    Misogyny at its best. You never hear of a man being killed in Malawi by a female lover or so. It is always men who brutalize females, raping children or killing women. I think this nurse was murdered because he wasnt interested. I think the story is also incomplete. I think those cowards should be on life or even be on CAPITAL PUNISHMENT.

  36. James Kwacha says:

    Glad to hear this development. This was a young, beautiful and intelligent lady. I knew her way back in late 90’s due to his brother Joseph . She had a strong passion for God and it is sad her life was taken away in such a brutal manner. May the long am of the law deal with the bastards who ended her life. May the boyfriend rot in hell. Continue to rest in peace Faith.

  37. Truth shall prevail says:

    This story is complete false…..our policemen u are not doing justice on this case. In the first place u arrested a big man u never brought him or his arresting to the media not even the public. But what did you rush to do? u released the man on bail meanwhile the hired guy was still at large. You were wrong the man had all the chances to tamper around with evidence. Murder case munthu mumamupatsa bail mnsanga chonchi? The boy friend is the one that was running up and down to make sure the guys that murdered his gal be arrested. Does it add up then u hire some1 they do an evil act and u want them arrested. Don’t forget there is God out there and is seeing u truth will never be hidden……..this case if not well handled will come back to haunt you.

  38. NGWAZI says:

    Settie Kaunda i have known this guy from those days at Viphya private secondary school in Mzuzu..its really a shame seeing this guy if at all is indeed guilty of the crime to have resolted to taking an innocent life for money.. a big shame indeed

  39. Malawi says:

    Nkhaniyi sikumveka bwino but I suspect violent relationship here. Many women are in abusive relationahips but rhey still stick to their abusers despite the hardships they go thru. Somw despite being treated like trash they still go aheard and marry their abusers. I really do not understand the mind of a woman. Women u need to ooen ur eyes and ears. U need to think with ur heards. Your abusera are cowards but thwy play with play mind games. Alot of women fuel abuse. Its happening everywhere but still women dont seem to get it. If a man intimidates u and shows lack of respect to u and all around u be brave and leave or kick that person out of urlife.

    Relatonships are full of ups and down but some things are obvious. For a woman in any form of abusive relationship, smell the coffee and leave. Abusive people are charming lovers. Dont be deceived. Run foe ur life.

    1. Zoopsya says:

      Faith’s father Chembezi was a Tumbuka from Nkhamenya. Her mum was from Lilongwe. They both died when she was young. Those of us who knew her can testify. So stop writing tribal nonsense.

  51. iyawm says:

    this story is not true…the boy lover has been framed…

  52. kk says:

    Whether the story is complete or uncomplete but the issue is it is nonsense to kill somebody for what ever reasons it may be. We are talking about life here. You have no right to take somebody’s life. May her soul rest in peace.

  53. Steve moles says:

    Yes, tell us what was his motive by getting that innocent woman killed????

  54. Mupalesitina says:

    Murder is murder regardless of the motive. The court will be interested to prove that an offence of murder was committed and not the reasons.

  55. Mnkhulang'ona says:

  59. The Eye Eye says:

    Soko? why? Lets wait and see and hear the evil motives behind

  60. Naba says:

    I agree, the Police try to put some sense in our heads please. This story is not making sense, we need to know why the guys were hired to do such a brutal act? And why are women’s rights activist silent on the matter? Why is Malawi allowing such inhuman acts happen? Seriously the country doesnt have have resources to try murder cases? There are murder cases dating from 1995 still not tried and all you do is grant murderers bail in the name f they are still suspects till proven guilty by the court of law then it ends there. Do you think the Govt is contributing to such evil acts? You are able to convict a person stealing a cellphone or chicken 3 years IHL yet armed robbers and murderers go scot free.

  61. Penyani says:

    Complete the investigations Nyasatimes and inform us the motive of the murder. These criminal must face the full wrath of law since they have deprived the young lady of her future and the nation at large for loosing an ambitious young lady

    Mpaka hiring people to kill chibwenzi? They deserve death sentence ngakhale mumati ali ndi ufulu okhalabe kuti adzaphe wina!

  87. nzika says:

    THIS STORY IS INCOMPLETE, Why did they want the nurse killed ? thats the main point every reader is waiting to hear from this story. Nyasatimes, please bring us complete stories. She was killed, YES, But why ? ? ? ? ? ? ? why did Soko Hire people to kill her ????

    1. Mdabwitsidwi says:

      That iz very true and I waz even expectin dat..

      1. sxy says:

        Use your brain…why do men or women kill their wives or husbands…..You can’t expect all this information because people keep it to themselves. The point is made here that the fiance wanted her dead. There could be many theories to this:
        1. Either he is no longer in love and the woman is clinging to him
        2. There could be another woman wanting Mr. Soko
        3. She might hold some secret that he does not want revealed
        4. the list could go on…..but you don’t expect to know all these just today or tomorrow

        But for now, we are happy with the updates and its good that the culprits have been taken…Before you complain use your empty skull

      2. Observer says:

        It would be interesting to know why Soko wanted this beautiful woman killed but I guess they are still investigating the story!

      3. Observer says:

        Yeah, some facts are not adding up. Was the boyfriend also at large? Aren’t there murderers simply implicating the boy friend? Si ndeu ya a tambala imeneyi?….and the combination raises more questions A clerk, a student…..being ired to kill by a boy friend? What does this boyfriend do to manage hiring a clerk to kill?….

      4. tiko says:

        The story is very complete; suspects arrested. as to why she was killed will be revealed as the case proceeds. one thing at a time. “mumaona kuchedwa ndima robot omwe?”

      5. Alibaba says:

        Piece up the story then write. Wee dont’t want to be fed sketchy stories like this. We thought you boast doing investigative journalism.

        1. bonya says:

          Sure this story although it is from MANA is half baked and incomplete. it does not answer the essentials like so what and why etc. NyasaTimes should have added value to the story by getting more information to boost its value and make it complete. MANA civil service type like reporting is useless and stupid. so by extention Nyasa shares the blame by posting a mediocre story. I rest my case.
