Thundu CCAP moderator reverend Macdonald Khuzeya of the Blantyre Synod is battling for his life at Nguludi Mission Hospital after being severely wounded by unknown thugs who broke into his house in Bangwe, Blantyre.
The thugs attacked the house in the wee hours of Friday, June 3 2016 and badly wounded Reverend Khuzeya and one of his security guards.
According to Nyasa Times sources, who rushed the victims to the hospital, the criminals badly stabbed the Reverend and his guard on the head with sharp objects.
Meanwhile, the whereabouts of other watchmen are not known, but they largely believed to have connived with the thugs.
They have stolen travelling bags containing clothes, ATM cards, certificates and clergy robes or pulpit gowns
There was no immediate comment from the Police while Blantyre Synod Moderator Robson Chimkwezule, the Synod’s Spiritual Father, confirmed the incident, but declined to talk more about the incident and referred this reporter to his General Secretary Reverend Alex Maulana.
Effort to talk to Rev. Maulana equally proved futile.
This incident come barely few days after unknown thugs killed former Malawi Broadcasting Corporation (MBC) television producer Dexter Kanike.
The 48-year old Kanike was killed by armed robbers at his residence in Chilimba Township, Blantyre.
The thugs broke into Kanike’s house in the wee hours of Wednesday (June 1st) and stole laptop and cameras before stabbing him with unknown object.
