Wame was killed in his bedroom, accorindg to Station Officer for Salima Police, Assistant Commissioner Godfrey Mughogho.

The late evangelist’s son, Timothy Wame,  said the Presbyterian minister was living alone in his house and the only other person in the estate was the unidentified worker.

“My dad was living alone here and the worker was just new at least two months old that is why I do not know his name. I only know that he comes from Machinga district,” the son said.

Timothy said the incident happened at around 1:30 in the morning of Friday.

Accoriding to Police’s Mughogho,  the cops  received a call at night “from three people who on their way back from a drinking joint met house-kpeer (the suspect) carrying two bags of maize in a wheelbarrow at around 2 a.m. The suspect claimed that he had been given the maize by the late evangelist, but the group insisted to see the evangelist, at that point the suspect fled.”

Mughogho explained that the group went further to confirm with the evangelist only to find him dead.

He said that the room where they found the dead body there was a pool of blood and the body had cuts.

Tributes poured in on Friday for the exceptional preacher.

Blantyre City Presbytery clerk Reverend Baxton Maulidi described the death of Wame as an attack aimed at silencing servants of God.

“It’s a shock, it is an attack from Satanism. Let what God had allowed to be as it happened but its an attack. As one of the leaders in the religious circles we are disturbed,” said Maulidi.

Wame was born a Presbyterian in 1944, baptized in 1962 and  became a born again Christian in 1966.

He is survived by nine children,

    The devil at work indeed, what crime did the man of God made to cost him such a brutal killing. Having bags of maize?? Aaa no. Lets us pray against this spirit and men of God be strong and spread the gospel even Stephen was stoned to death for preaching the good news. Today people are selfish fir nothing at all. God have mercy. MHSRIP

    The analyst, you have forgotten to include: if we ask chakwera will say he has been killed because of bad governance, Ask Trapence and Mtambo will say Peter Mutharika must resign, Ask Billy Mayaya will say pa 7 November tikayenda munswewu, ask a Mtumbuka will tell you kuti why only in the central region? the list goes on

    This is the act of the devil Indeed in our nation. But why innocent elderly soul. Let us pray for our nation.

    Malawi is overpowered by moral decay. So this is how innocent important people are going to be slaughtered? We real need to revisit our moral standards

    Bwana Timothy Wame…why did your family allow such an elderly man to live by himself with an unknown worker. Nkhanza kwa makolotu izi.

  6. Nyamakumutu says:

    You mean all those nine children left him to leave alone. They don’t even know the name of the servant working for their dad. It all means one thing foolishness and now you will know what it means to have no dad.

      “LEFT him to LEAVE alone”?
      Koma yaaaa.
      Welcome to Malawi!!!!

    So this is “an attack from/by Satan aimed at silencing men of God”? Mhhhhh!!!!
    . . . Coming from a pastor, this is not surprising coz if you ask a lawyer, he/she will equally relate this unfortunate event to the constitution (no matter how loosely); as shall an economist to distribution/allocation of resources (bags of maize).
    . . . But if you ask a plain and an honest person (not a lawyer, a pastor, an economist etc), he/she will tell you that living “alone” with a man with no face or name (guised as a housekeeper, yet a thief and murderer), made Wame vulnerable; and thus a stronger reason for Wame’s tragedy than an attack from Satan (as per Baxton Maulidi’s assertions).
    ……………………………………………………..
    . . . And since this is not the first time an event of such nature has occured (as Indebank boss was also murdered in a similar fashion in August 2012, for similar reasons (kuti amubele)); we can safely generalise and conclude that living alone with a houseboy/keeper is not a good idea.
    . . . All we can do therefore is to “Learn from the mistakes of others, coz you cannot possibly live long enough to make them (mistakes) all yourself.” – Eleanor Roosevelt.
    . . . Thusly, if you want to live alone, live alone. If you want a hand, lembani ntchito munthu odziwika (not only by you but also achibale anu and neighbours). Most importantly, dont live alone – tengani wachibale wanu.

    1. Thus Says Zarathustra says:

      I too do not want to subscribe to the Satanic attack. Focus on the problem, murder and our carnal mind. Stop scapegoating by locating the source of it to imaginary beings. May his soul rest in peace. I will always miss him and his oratory.
