Mzimba district police publicist constable Gabriel Chiona said Bydon picked a quarrel with his grandfather over some mattresses and suitcases which were left by his late parents.

“We understand the old man was refusing to release the items which were left by his late parents a long time ago when he was still young “, said Constable Chiona.

He said on Sunday the suspect went to drink beer at Elunyeni trading centre and when he returned he started quarrelling with his grandfather demanding the proprieties left by his late parents.

“In the course of the quarrel Bydon got hold of a hoe handle with which he clobbered his grandfather in the head causing severe injuries,” said the police officer.

The grandfather was discovered dead in his house on Monday and a post mortem carried out by medical staff who accompanied the police showed that he died due to heavy head injuries.

“The suspect has been locked up and will answer charges of murder,” said Constable Chiona

The suspect and the deceased are from Chilongosi village in the area of Inkosi Mthwalo in Mzimba district.

The incident comes after 70 year old Standwell Mtonga was murdered by unknown people on Sunday and his body dumped along the banks of Mzimba River. Police are yet to make arrest of the suspects.

    If it is not stealing govt money or kuwonera mayeso (kuuzilana mayeso), then all that is left as news from mzimba is suicide, murder, wife buttering, manslaughter, women killing husbands, property grabbing, kulandana minda, rape of children, fighting in the church , chamba smocking , misala, aiding illegal immigrants etc. Very anti-social people. Ndikunamaaa? Anthu opotoka maganizo awa. That’s why amathawa kwawo kukaunjikana ku south thooooooo!

    This is most unfortunate and totally unacceptable The young man could have left the things for the grandpa who was old and weak He being youthful he can work and earn his own things As for the anti Tumbuka sentiments they are most unfortunate and barbaric Regardless of tribal differences we are all Malawians and should love and respect one another

    dispute over deceased estate. do not die without a testament about how your properties should be shared among your dependents. since you cannot foretell when you will die, draw your will now…

  21. This is MZIMBA I know may GOD alowererepo, Mzimba must repent very soon B4 Heveans anger coms.

  22. When we read in the Book of John Chap 8 Verse 8, we actually hear that, And again , He stooped down and wrote on the Ground. In this verse, Stopped down means , Seeking Knowledge from The almighty God. Wrote on the Ground means that, He was actually , provided with the answer, from the Ground. This means that, there are many ways, of getting the answer from the almighty God. Becouse, He is , God of all answers. This young child, according to Mzimba police, has actually been trying, to have his belongings, but to no avail. The diseased, actually contributed, by not allowing, the young man, to have his things. But, the young man is wrong to kill. Hence the case is actually, manslaughter, not murder. Your views are welcome.
