Murder suspect kills inmate in Mzuzu prison as Malawi son kills mum for rebuking his thievery

A 25 year old murder suspect on full remand at Mzuzu prison has allegedly killed an inmate after the two picked a quarrel over sleeping space due to high congestion in the prison.

Prison authorities said Muda Mhango allegedly killed Abel Jere, 40 who was serving a jail sentence for unlawful wounding.

The officials said on Tuesday, there were 580 inmates against its capacity of 200 forcing each inch of space to be occupied by the inmates.

They said this is when Mhone and Jere went to the prison male section toilet which was also full.

In the course of sleep, the two picked up a quarrel on the sleeping space and a fight ensued leading to the death of Jere.

Prison official Austin Masangwale confirmed the incident and said the issue has been referred to police.

Mzuzu police spokesperson Morris Chapola said the police are working on the death reports.

In Mulanje, a 26 year old man is in police custody for allegely killing his biological mother for rebuking him over his theft tendencies.

Police spokesman in Mulanje Gracian Ngwira said Sanudi Bonongwe is in police custody to awaiting murder case.

Ngwira said Sanudi had earlier stolen a bicycle belonging to one of the villagers and then stole another one belonging to her mother.

This did not go down well with her mother who wanted him arrested unless he brought back the bicycles.

That night, Sanudi killed his mother, Sellina by suffocating her and left her half buried in his boys quarters or gowelo. Then a villager had his two chickens stolen and reported the matter to a village chief, whom with the owner of the chickens decided to follow footsteps from the chicken kraal leading the two to the Sanudi’s house.

After they forced open the door, they found Sanudi’s mother dead and half killed.

Sellina and Sanudi hailed from Nzizira in chief Mthiramanja’s area in Mulanje.

    A Kanyimbi, simungamvetsa chifukwa mumawerenga zomwe sizinalembedwe pa nkhaniyi. Ali mayeso mutalephera man. They are saying dead and half buried, and not half killed as you are insinuating.

    Dead and half killed? What does this mean? I do not understand this.

  10. purist says:

    Its an error he meant “they found Sanudi’s mother dead and half buried”.

    “Phwanyaphwanya mpira wa a kaidi. Sakumanga kawiri.” – Simon and Kendal song (Malamulo a mmemo)

    Implying that when prisoners play football, they can be as savage as they can, injuring each other as much as they can in the process; for they cant be re-arrested and re-jailed. Such is a strange yet interesting mind of hence level of thinking of a prisoner!
    . . . There are some strange busy minds who are free yet wear a prisoners’ mind. They are strange busy bees who vehemently oppose and campaign for the abolishment of the death sentence! Lend me your hears (ears with an “h”), i beg of you . . .

    What happens to an inmate who happens to commit another murder while serving a life sentence for previous murder? Re-arrested and sentenced to life again? But he/she is already serving a life sentence!
    Is it not at this point that the death penalty becomes relevant?; since it eliminates the mentality that a prisoner can do whatever he/she pleases on other prisoners, since they have already seen it all? It reminds the clogged-minded prisoner that they haven’t seen all if they continue to live.

    Death sentence is a necessary evil!

    In Malawi the problem is laziness. Add to this illiteracy, you have baboons, well baboons are better they show some love. Let’s hyenas. All this is because someone did not seek to do something to earn in honest. But just to steal. In the end just to steal and kill. Apa palibe kusiyana ndi mbava za cashgate. Only some educated savages not illiterate. They steal from government, fail to share spoils equally, they shoot each other. Mphwiyo vs Manondo/Kasambara scenario. But yet while this mad boy is on remand, Mphwiyo and his friends still enjoy freedom on akuti health grounds. eeeh. Mavuto alipo osayamba

    ‘They found Sanudi’s mother dead and half killed.’

    Does this mean that Sanudi’s mother was dead, but only half of her had been killed by Sanudi? The other half had died of natural causes. Or does it mean that having been half killed by Sanudi, she later died as a result of the injuries she had sustained?

    The unfortunate lady is dead. Can’t we grant her some dignity by expressing this fact comprehensibly?
