  16. Zidura Ntengo Undigwere says:

    My first reaction when I saw the picture, was that it was dis-respectable for the victim and her relatives to show the body in that state and environment. This website should have shown more sensitivity. Always ask oneself; “How would I feel if it was a member of my family?” I still feel the same way, and I am resisting looking at the picture again!
    And to rub salt into the wound, the authorities put back the body into the pit? How would they feel if that victim was their daughter, wife, mother, sister or what have you? The Police and the coroners are paid to handle such evidence, regardless of the “dirt” encompassing it, aren’t they?

  19. dungulinu banda says:

    As longer as the body is decomposed there is no need for further investigation by police in Malawi.There is no syllabus for training of decomposed bodies at Kanjedza police training school.What they know is kunyamula zibonga ndi kuvala zisoti ngati akukavina beni.Crime solving is for the intelligent police.

    Hey! Do we really have leadership in this Country? Who made that decision to bury the woman in the toilet? How was post mortem conducted by the doctor and where and who was the doctor? Policing in the Warm Heart of Africa. Why then do people go for training. Just a waste of resources indeed. Case opened and closed that’s it.

  26. Please says:

    Body buried in the toilet because of the state of decomposition, really? Where are our morals? Who made that inhumane decision? Why do we have cemetaries then? Whoever made that decision, did they consult the family or what? Where have we left the respect for the dead. This woman deserves and deserved to be buried with dignity whether decomposed or not. Where is compassion, duty of care love sympathy in this. The most sensible thing will be to exhume the body and be buried in dignified manner. This is sickening to the relatives. What about the pain of not knowing why and what went wrong and how was she in those painful moments facing death. Then comes an issue of a human being being buried like a dog. How can her soul rest in that pit latrine. Her body is supposed to be in the grave at the cemetery. If this woman was a high person I don’t think that inhumane decision would have been made. Those incharge would have made an effort to salvage everything in order to preserve the dignity. Whoever made decision, think if it was ur mother sister or yourself. How could you sleep knowing your relatives body is lying in a toilet not a grave? Think and do everything in your power to bury this woman with dignity.

    Suffocation or murdered?

    Do we really hv crime solvers in the Malawi police?People will just be dying like chickens with the way things have reached Malawi.Our police needs to recruit young intelligent young men and women who can be effective in the Malawi police and can merge the puzzle together to corner these lowlife thugs.It is becoming scary as to who will be the next to face the same fate.

  30. EdK says:

    Why not give the poor woman a more dignified funeral other than burying her in a toilet you idiots. Decomposition is no excuse!

    This is when ishall always remember Bibgu was Muntharika.He was a no nosence leader.

  35. Malawi says:

    Buried the body in the toilet because of the decomposed body? Where are our morals? Why not bury the woman with dignity. Can someone please resume that body and bury it properly. Do you want to tell me if this woman was someone famous the police would have done that. Despite the smell or whatever they could have buried her in a dignified way. Think of the relatives. They will live with mental torture not knowing what happened, how she suffered in those last moments let alone buried in humanely. No matter how decomposed the body was, the police had the duty of care and respect, and also to show compassion to the relatives. Please do the right thing. That body deserves to be in a grave that is why we have cemeteries. I feel bad to write may her soul rest in peace. This is not right.

    Malawi @51 abundant primitive lifestyle. Time to check out of this DPP thug led country.

  37. mMalawi says:

    Nde mwati the doctor went and said she died of suffocation? Did they do a full postmortem? Koma pa Malawi timanamizana eti?

  39. CONGO MAFIA says:

    She met her death in a brutal way. To bury her in that manner is like adding insults to injury.

  40. CONGO MAFIA says:

    Is that enough explanation to bury someone’s daughter, mother, auntie, sister in pit latrine simply because the body is decomposed? If she was a relation to one of the authorities you wouldn’t allow that. Malawi has gone to the dogs really.

  41. wavisanga says:

    God have mercy on Malawi! last days indeed! people are butchering each other like chickens, forgive our sins dear Lord!

    Because of the state of decomposition body buried in same toilet? Really? Would you bury accident victims on the accident site? How were you able to ascertain cause of death if ur afraid to carry remains to a decent burial site? Lazy Malawian police. Take the body, study it further, bones are not decomposed yet.

  57. omex says:

    Murder is the order of the day here in Malawi. No arrests made is what we always here from the police

  58. KAMUZU BANDA JR says:

    I am gobsmacked on how the Malawi Police intensify a murder investigation, do they even know what that means.

    I will tell you the techniques if you want to intensify investigation on any murder incident; you first of all ensure to make safe the murder scene….leave at least two police officers guarding the area and stop people from accessing the area in case they tamper with the area and mislead the investigation. secondly, remove all the items left at the murder scene or any circumstancial evidences you may find. Thirdly, you ask for any information or witnesses who may have seen anything suspicious at the time of the murder, once you have found witnesses do not scare them they are just helping you and you are not obliged to listen to them if you think such testimony will not stand in court. Fourthly, ask neighboring houses if they heard anything, a scream or people walking, talking, any vehicles or lights something like that. For example, Issa Njauju’s incident occurred at a stone throw with Peter Mutharika’s residence, summon him to come down town for questioning if he saw or heard anything. Family members or staff if at all any of them left the house or made any phone calls that night. THAT’S INTENSIFYING INVESTIGATION

  59. Samarakunjuta says:

    There has been no arrests???? No arrest my foot!!! Anyway as long as it is happening kwanuko I don’t care very soon you will be eating each other you people you are cowards!!!
